Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveThisLantern LOVE this lantern!
Bought the small lantern for my entryway. We only have 9 foot ceilings and after unpacking it, I was concerned it would be too large for the space. But it fit perfectly once it was hung. It is even more beautiful in person and I really couldn't be happier!

by bostontwinmama Small change, huge impact
I bought three of these lanterns to replace lights on the porches in front of our house. They looks awesome and several neighbors have commented how nice they look. They give off plenty of light as well.
As other reviewers noted, they are difficult to install due to a deign flaw. Our electrician pointed it out to me but he was able to install all three in the end.

I have two of the small lanterns hanging over my kitchen island and they absolutely make the room. I adore them! They put off a ton of light hanging side by side. My only complaint is that it is difficult to clean the glass and get all the smudges out. I had an electrician install them and he had no issues (although they are quite heavy!). Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaseyLynn Bigger than you think!
We bought two of these, the small for our foyer, and the large for our upstairs hall. We had to return the small one because it was just too large for the foyer (we only have 8' ceilings), however the large worked really well for the upstairs hall. The upstairs is very open, so this hang from the ceiling, and hangs over the open stairs and lights all the way down to the first floor. It is a bit large for the upstairs, but we like the dramatic look. There was practically no assembly required because all the glass was in place. Very good value! Also comes with an extra "candle stick", not sure why you would need one but I guess in case it were to crack down the road. The wax drippings are very realistic looking. I'm thinking about seeing how it would look with shades on the lights.

The lantern itself is beautiful.The glass did not arrive clean and we cannot get all of the smudges out. We have tried several different products. Being a fixture in our entry way, you can see the smudges very well.

I wanted something special to replace an outdated track lighting set in the kitchen. We loved these lanterns so much we also purchased them for the dining room and hallway. It really updated the look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DeepSouth This light is very pretty...but
I ordered this light fixture quite a few months ago. We have been remodeling a house and have just now installed this fixture. As other reviewers have said, after hours of trying to install the light, my husband decided to use a Dremel tool to trim some excess metal off the hook so that it would slide through the canopy. And voila! That worked! Otherwise there was absolutely no way to install it. Also as other reviewers have stated, this light is definitely black-not bronze as advertised. I don't know-maybe black is called bronze in India. Who knows? Anyway, after saying all of that, i do love the lantern and the way it looks above my table!!!

by Charise Looks great, but defect made install difficult
The lantern is beautiful and the large scale looks great in the space where we installed it. However, as another reviewer noted, the canopy loop was slightly misshaped which prevented us from being able to slide the canopy down over it, which meant there wasn't enough room to complete the install. It took us hours to finagle a workaround that would allow the light to still be installed. The customer service line was able to arrange for another version of the part to be sent to us, but it had the exact same problem. The finish is also very easily scratched. For the price, this is still a good-looking light of this size and we are happy with the end result, but just be aware of the possible issues.

I love this lantern. I bought the small one for my foyer. I have 9 ft. ceilings throughout my home and it fits great. We could not use all of the chain so we just cut some links out but it puts out plenty of light and looks beautiful. The only thing I have to comment on is the color was supposed to be antique bronze and it's not. It might as well have been called black because that's what it is. So don't expect it to be as described. Otherwise, it's a very nice light and a wonderful change to the light fixture it replaced.

I bought the small lantern for above my kitchen table and it looks absolutely beautiful! It was the perfect size ( bigger than I expected but perfect) I have antiqued white cabinets and it looks really good in contrast to the cabinets. I will be purchasing this same lantern for my foyer entry way as well. The only thing I will say is the color of the lantern is more of a black then a bronze. Also when we put the right bulbs in the lantern it was extremely bright so we installed a dimmer switch that gave us the option of less or more light when we needed. The quality is great and shipped right on time! Definitely recommend this product!

Very impressed with Calisse lantern. With 9ft ceilings we chose the small for our foyer and it is the perfect size. The style, size and finish was just what we hoped for. Very happy with our purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PianoPlayer This product is very reasonably priced
I purchased this light for a stairwell area used as a back entrance into our house. I ordered the smaller one and it looks great in our new addition. It is the perfect size and I liked it so well that I ordered a second one for the front entryway. Very reasonably priced!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VandPHome Fun over sized lantern
We ordered the large lantern which looks stunning hanging in the front entry stairwell of our home. The lantern is quite heavy which can pose a challenge when installing the light on a high ceiling, however we are completely pleased with the final result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Red4red This light is a great buy for the price!
Absolutely love this lantern style fixture! It's perfect in my foyer! Nice quality. I went with the larger size since it's an entry way. Would definitely recommend this purchase! I like that the bottom is open, makes it easy for cleaning the glass panels & changing bulbs!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sweetwater Returning 3 fixtures
Because of an apparent design flaw, we were unable to install these fixtures. It is breaking my heart to return them but after 2 weeks of trying to get the problem solved, I gave up. The canopy at the ceiling cannot slide down the chain so one can attach the bracket to the junction box because the end of the nut and the top of the chain are larger than the hole in the canopy and will not slide down the chain to give the installed room to use a screw driver. I hope they get these redesigned and remade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mellieg Great look , good quality, low light
Ordered small for my entry...size was perfect, but the fixture calls for max. 40W bulbs. With only 160Ws of light, it makes my entry a bit dark. Something to consider..Otherwise, love the look and quality is good. Somewhat difficult to install for DIY. Ballard, please do this lantern in antique bronze finish!!
