Rated 5 out of 5 by BeachingIt Great look
After searching in several lighting stores for the right pendants for our island, I came across the Addie lights in your catalog. I found the color (spa green) to go with my decor. They are beautiful and eye catching. They are heavier than your average pendant so the electrician used a fan box to hang them. We were lucky enough to find table lamps that matched the pendants. Beautiful!

by weezer12 love the look of the light online and in catalogue but it doesn't hang right!
we absolutely love the look of this light. unfortunately, every single light (total of 6 ordered and received now) except for ONE, does not hang right. either the inside screw is off-kilter (which makes the lightbulb hang sideways) or the top metal piece is off, which makes the whole light hang diagnoally. when we received several lights that hung incorrectly, we contacted ballard and the gal we spoke to on the phone was extremely helpful. she guaranteed that before another addie pendant was sent, a product manager would check it over and be sure it was in-tact. unfortunately we just received the light that was personally checked over by a product manager and the inside screw is slanted and off-kilter. cannot believe we received another light that isn't made correctly! so bummed because we love the look of this pendant but we are getting tired of boxing up and mailing them back. this one was supposedly personally checked by a product manager and it is still wrong. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stage2stay An exquisite lighting addition to our master bath
The Aqua color tone of this seed glass pendant light makes a perfect focal point in a master bath with the sense of beach front water. A beautiful fixture as a focal point near the soaking tub. Installation was easy. Thank you for this product.

Easy to install. Well packaged. Took a long time (out of stock for 2+ months) but glad I wasn't in a rush. It looks great in my nook.

Rated 1 out of 5 by suebf tinted film peels off
When we first installed these pendants over our island I was initially disappointed that the 'bronze trim' is actually tinted plastic, but I hoped that only I noticed it. I liked the look so they stayed. They have now been up for about 2 years and I thought I saw a crack in the glass, which was odd since it's hanging in a spot that would be difficult to damage. Upon further investigation, I see that it was not cracked but the color (I have amber) is not actually tinting in the glass, but rather a colored film over clear glass. This film has begun to disintegrate giving it a 'cracked' look where the film is now missing. I am now forced to replace them. Ballards warranty does not cover items purchased 2 years ago.

Loved, until I put it up. The pendant is not weighted right, so all three of my products lean one way or the other. I cannot fix it. So they just hang of kilter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JaytheDIYer The glass it what makes it
These are now installed and they looked like I hoped. We bought the amber color, which seems the best to me. The seeded antique glass is the go-to feature of these, together with the shape of the dome. The rest of the build quality is adequate (well built) but not really fine. The metal is painted brown on the amber -- nothing really looks shiny or antique. If the picture looks like what you're looking for, the product won't disappoint. We also bought the Edison old style bulbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NuggetsofWisdom Clearly the Perfect Choice
While the Celadon or Aqua colors would have worked with my decor, I purchased the pendant in Clear to ensure that I would get the most light over a dining table. It is the perfect choice. I use a simple, 60 watt clear bulb so that I can use a dimmer switch and it works well. I would have rated it excellent but the "seeding" is heavy causing the glass to look clouded and not quite as clear as I would have liked. Also, the extensive seeding results in shadows on the ceiling and walls which is okay but I'm surprised wasn't mentioned in other reviews.

I ordered this pendant for my home office several months ago after falling in love with the color (sea glass) Unfortunately it was on backorder for almost 2 months. When it did come in, it was easy to install and looks beautiful on my ceiling. I have tried both a regular bulb and an Edison bulb in it. The Edison bulb is of course not near as bright but I like the effect. I wish I had seen these before I had replaced the pendants recently over my kitchen counter because they would have looked amazing. I get a lot of compliments on it.

Love these. I bought the amber, celedon and aqua. I expected the aqua to have a similar color intensity to match the other two, but, it is a bit light.
I chose mixed colors because the aclectic look works great above the kitchen island. Other reviews mentioned that the amber shade trim and cord were gold/black, and the others were silver/white so I expected that inconsistency. But I didnt count on the canopy (the metal cover that attaches to the ceiling) being different (color and shape) on all three.... not ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BulldogMommy Perfect Addition To My Kitchen!
I ordered these pendants in the aqua color for the island over my kitchen and they are absolutely gorgeous! I've already gotten several compliments on them. They are very well made and provide excellent task lighting. My only complaint would be the installation instructions. It took over an hour for me and my husband to get the first light installed correctly and my husband is very handy! Other than that frustration, we have been very happy with our purchase. They were worth the few months wait due to backorder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SailorGirl3 Even prettier than I thought!
What a pretty pop of color in my ivory kitchen. They are a bit bigger than I anticipated, but I'm thrilled because they fit perfectly above the island; wouldn't want them smaller. There is a nautical flair to the aqua
color, but it could accent any decor. Such a great alternative to the boring "upside-down bowl" pendants that can sometimes tend to look like hats.

Purchased 3 of these lamps for our kitchen remodled and none of them hang correctly. We have tried everything to correct this and there simply is not a solution. I would not waste my money on something so poorly manufactured.

I really love my new laundry room light! The only thing I am not happy with is the holes in the cover... Ballard didn't supply anything to put in them, so now theres just two holes for everyone to see. I wish they would have sent me plugs, or not put the holes in... :(

This hanging light in my foyer is so beautiful! Everyone who comes over compliments it. I got the clear I did not think it would have such a significant impact when I ordered it but it does! With the Vintage bulb at night time it is both dramatic and elegant. I really love it!!!

I'd been thinking about this light for months. Read reviews and finally decided to purchase for my new Florida home. I purchased the clear and hung it over my dining table. It wasn't difficult to install and I fell in love immediately. You must use the Edison bulb. Everyone who comes into my home loves it too. An excellent choice for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by renogal Exactly as I hoped
Looked at this pendant light many times before buying it to hang over the farmer's sink installed in my new kitchen remodel. After reading all the reviews and weighing them along with my desire to try this light, I can say I am so glad I did! It is exactly what I had hoped for- beautiful, well made and gives the kitchen a great point of interest. Straight out of the box, it was a bit larger than I imagined, but its size is perfect for the space. Would definitely recommend this light to anyone considering a pedant light that would act as a show piece in the kitchen :-)

I ordered 2 amber pendants to hang over my kitchen island. I was worried that these would be too large, but we have tall ceilings and a large space so they are actually perfect and much better than the smaller lights I had previously.
I like the way the light looks on the ceiling through the glass.
I haven't had any issues with the peeling that other reviewers mentioned.
I had an electrician hang them and he said they were easy.
I am transitioning our style to be somewhat more contemporary and these are a great addition.

Love, Love, Love... SOOOO in LOVE with my new Addie pendants. We are building a new Lake Cabin and my theme is Aquamarine, grey and white with an airy beachy feel, with lots of sea glass accents in different hues of turquoise, aquamarines and greens. I originally went with the turquoise / Blue, but as others have mentioned - there is a awkward blue cast in the lighting, I was not crazy with the blue lighting that they casted and they really are more of a blue than a turquoise. I returned them for the clear and could not be more happy! I needed two to fit over a 6 foot breakfast bar and with the large size of each two is plenty. The seed glass fits right in with my Beachy theme. They are very substantial and make a bold statement and I am sure I will get tons of compliments. I did have to order two different times in order to get two that matched closely in the bubble patterns.. some have very little bubble and some have a ton of bubbles. I am ACDC when it comes to things being similar. Just be aware if you are nuts like me, you may have to order more than the amount you need to get a good match and send the reaming back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Finisher The cheap cord the light hangs from cheapens the entire product
The glass pendant is very nice, however the pendants hangs from a cheap white cord. Looks primitive. The light loses overall quality due to this cord. I am returning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AinTN Good looks; Bad quality
Don't be fooled by the splendid color of these lights. The color is only sprayed on and will peel very easily, ie. even with a fingernail. The paint will also crinkle and peel off. I am very disappointed in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katieb THESE ARE AWESOME!
I purchased two blue Addie pendants to hang over my kitchen island (4x7). They are huge and beautiful! I have had so many compliments, they just pull my whole kitchen together! I wasn't so sure on the white cord/silver trim - with my other fixtures being oil rubbed bronzed, however, I don't even notice it now that they are hanging from the ceiling! I would recommend, and Ballard was 100% behind me in exchanging if there were any defects as noted in other reviews... Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SIC38 Beautiful fixture. Even better then I hoped.
I absolutely love this light. When I ordered it I didn't realize it was that big and it ended up looking better then the smaller sized fixtures. It is hung from the ceiling in our beach house kitchen in front of a small window. The aqua pendant light fixture has become a beautiful focal point in our window. I also love the textured light patterns it creates. The only negative I can say is that the hanging hardware was a little challenging for the weight of the fixture. Had to purchase a stronger clamp to safely hold the light.

I love this light! Not only does it go great with my lamps and accessories but the seeded glass gives a great effect to the walls when the light is on.
I was concerned about it hanging straight due to complaints online, but mine was perfect. I did keep in mind reviews about the colors ones, my wall is purple so the clear light works great.

I am going to return my green light. Once it was hung, we noticed it was not clear glass. The seeded glass seems to be sprayed on. I had both the clear and green and found both to be not a true color.

We love our new Addie pendant. Easy to install. You can achieve two looks w/ the desired light bulb you use i.e.; a clear bulb will illuminate & give you design of the seeded glass on your walls and opaque bulb will just illuminate.
