4 Light Large Semi Flush Mount Ceiling Fixture from the Monterey Mosaic Collection
This is a stunning light fixture. I was worried that it would not give off enough light because it would be the only fixture in the room, but with 4 bulbs (60watts each), it is perfect. The shells of the fixture sparkle and give off just enough bling, while keeping with the traditional feel of the home. We put it in our house that we are selling, and it is the first thing you see when you walk in the door...and it was beautiful. It sets the tone for the rest of the home and added a feeling of high quality and well chosen fixtures (a very important detail).

very satisfied with this beautiful, classy light
We have a small dining area with a low ceiling. We have an open floor plan in our home & this light really opens up the space. I decided to take a chance with a semi-flush fixture instead of a chandelier & am so glad I chose this rich-looking light! The photo doesn't do it justice! I LOVE the natural colors on the shells of the globe; they're beautifully enhanced when the light is on. The light enhances & warmly brings together the dining room set that belonged to my grandmother. I thank the previous reviewers for their comments. Some reviews complained about the amount of light produced but my husband & I find it perfect. Plus, we use a dimmer switch so we can make it look like candlelight.

Very nice but a little dark
As the title stated, this item is very nice but considering it uses four 100 watt bulbs, the light it produces is a little on the dark side. It shows very well and has a beautiful look to it but it should not be your main light in a dining room, Quality wise, the shade is well made but the assemble by numbers base and it's ability to look centered doesn't look right if you happen to be looking up at the fixture beyond the shade. Service with this direct sale company is outstanding! Very helpful with follow up emails.

This ceiling light worked out perfect for my dining room. I get so many positive comments on it from visitors to my home. Wish I would have caught the sale.
Don't try 60 watt bulbs, even though there are 5 it's just not enough light. I didn't want to use 100's so I put in 5, 75 watt bulbs and in my situation this is perfect.
This fixture is high quality and very attractive.
Lighting Direct...You guy's are great! This is only the 2nd time I order from you, but both times have been fantastic.

Beautiful warm glow
Purchased this lamp together with a five light chandelier from the same group as part of a kitchen remodel. The product is stunning!
Do note that the light fixtures will be a bit dark, not bright. The shell diffusing piece doesn't let light through the same way as glass does--but for my purposes, to warm up a new kitchen heavy on the granite and stainless steel, it is perfect.

Love this light!!!
This light is absolutely beautiful! I ordered a couple of Tiffany lights for my kitchen and wasn't happy with their color since it varied from the pictures, so I returned them. I ran across this one and ordered it (only ordered one to see if it was going to match my colors). It did, so I have already placed another order for the matching three globe chandelier. This light is true to its color and will definately go with brown tones. It puts off a warm glow, and I just love it. The globe is thick so, if you need alot of light, you will definately need to use four 100w bulbs. I am using 60w bulbs.

Beautiful Light Fixture
Although difficult to install by yourself, it was not impossible. This is one of the most beautiful lighting fixtures I have seen. I bought two for my entryway. They both emit a warm, amber glow and are a stunning sight upon entering our home. Not too fancy and certainly not plain at all. A great buy!

Absolutely beautiful !
I purchased this fixture for my entry way hall. I turn the light on even when I don't need it just to look at the beautiful glass mosaic! This light is truly stunning when it is on. This light works well on relatively low ceilings.

We purchased the Quoizel MY 1718 Semi-Flush for our Dining Room and it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The irredescent pen shells are so outstanding. They suggest 4-100 watt bulbs because when turned on the light appears somewhat dim. But, we used 2-60watt & 2-100watt and that was more than enough needed. We got many compliments. Glad we purchased it!! Also, it was packed very securely.
