I purchased 3 small fixtures for over my kitchen island and they are exactly what I was hoping for. I love how they changed the look of my kitchen and they go great with my Talia chandelier I have in the attached dining room. As another reviewer stated the top plate came attached and was very hard to remove but with patience and a strong grip my electrician was able to remove it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JanasGems A stunning jewel in my foyer
I bought this chandelier for my foyer. My ceilings are only 9' tall so I didn't use the chain, it's installed semi-flush mount. This light was beautiful as is, but my house colors are black, white & gray, so I painted it a semi-gloss black & it looks amazing! I would highly recommend this light!!!!!

I ordered 3 of these and I am soooo happy! Very well made and no trouble to install. But most importantly they change the room! I am tempted to put them all over the house! I put one in the hallway from Master bedroom to bathroom, one in Master bedroom closet and one in loft area of 2 story family room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RuralLifeBigCity Attractive light but not able to hang as a pendant
We bought this light to hang over a small island in our kitchen. We were replacing an existing ceiling mounted fixture that didn't provide much light. Unfortunately, the new light came with the ceiling plate much too firmly attached. We really wanted to hang this as a pendant light but there was no way the ceiling plate was coming off without damaging the fixture. My husband thought it had been cross-threaded when installed at the factory. Because of this, we weren't able to attach the hanging chain and I'm stuck with a ceiling mounted light.

Beautiful, well-made, and just the right size. Bought 2 to hang over my island, as my kitchen is going through a small renovation. The 12" fit perfectly in the space without being too intrusive. Love the color as well! Great Job Ballard Designs for offering a highly functional and well made product.

I originally ordered two- 12 inch Large chandeliers for our 72 inch kitchen island, but exchanged the Large for two small 8 inch chandeliers. The quality of the pendant was right on. I hadn't ordered from Ballard Designs before, but was pleasantly happy with their products and customer service and returns!
I definitely use their catalogue for inspiration and design ideas for our entryway, dining, kitchen and living rooms! Love!

Remodeling our home after 21 years. Purchased the Small for our hallway and the Large for our stairway. Love the look and the quality. 60W was too much lighting now using 40W faceted.

These are perfect in size and provide a great deal of light. I have used them in my kitchen and laundry room and am slowly replacing those builder grade hall lights with them one at a time!

I purchased two large chandeliers for my newly renovated kitchen to put over my 4x8 island. I love them, and they really define the space.
We put them on a dimmer, they produce a lot light. Love the fact there is no glass involved so there is no extra cleaning!
Installation was a little longer than usual because they did not supply the proper screws, otherwise it was a great purchase! Getting a smaller one for the foyer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongIslander These pendants are good looking.
I installed two of these pendants in my kitchen. They are sturdy and attractive. They are just as described. The pendants came quickly and were packaged well with all parts needed to hang the light fixtures. I am very pleased.

by Debbe Love these carriage lights!
I ordered three small bronze for over my kitchen island & loved them so much went back for medium in silver to hang over my slipper tub in my master bath. They are lovely in all finishes & all sizes!
If you're ordering for a typical six foot island I would do three small or two large. Hope this helps.

This chandelier is so amazing. I ordered the small version in silver and based on reviews, I knew I wouldnt be disappointed. it is perfect. Used in our guest room with a few links (thought we would hang it flush, but didnt need to) and it really pulls everything together! LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luvcharm Excellent quality, very sturdy iron, beautiful workmanship
I bought the small chandelier for inside my bay window over the kitchen sink. I have it semi flush mounted and it adds the perfect look I wanted without obstructing the view out the window. Love the detail work in the design and could not be happier with both the look and quality of this product.

I ordered these for a new home to bring a more modern paired down look to a greatroom with catheral ceiling in a mostly traditional decor. The added bonus of not having any glass panels to keep clean in these lovely laterns make them a perfect 10!!! Once again Ballard hasn't disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Want2Decorate This chandelier fits well with all decor.
Fell in love with these chandeliers in the Ballard's catalogue. Purchased the large size for a two storey staircase in a new townhouse. Got the small size for the cozy dining room with beamed ceiling---and could not be happier! Wanted a chandelier in the dining room that would complement and not detract from/block art work there, so this was the perfect choice. They appear to be well-made and look wonderful! Style works well with the rustic French Country décor and I am extremely pleased with my purchases. Having a label stuck to one of the ' candles' was annoying, but found using "Goo Gone" to remove it did not damage the 'candle'. Everything I have purchased from Ballard's over the years have always been top quality, as these chandeliers are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elmgurl Just What I Was Looking For
I have the small Carriage House Chandelier and it's simply wonderful. At first I used standard clear candelabra bulbs that I had on hand but then located some 25 watt petite chandelier bulbs that were of the frosted flame tip style (same as what's pictured on Ballard's site) and they really added to the charm of the chandelier. Highly recommended!

Rated 1 out of 5 by yogamom613 very disappointed
After reading the great reviews, bought two large to place over my two kitchen islands. I found them to be rather cheap and flimsy looking, definitely not the important focal point I need in my new kitchen. Maybe if you're using in a small foyer or dark hallway they would look alright, but I returned both.

The Extra Large fixture works perfectly with our tall ceilings. The metal structure coordinates well with our iron stairway spindles.
The fixture quality is really good and we have received many compliments on the style and light coverage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DesigningQueen Nice fixture if you're a DIY person
Light fixture received looks black, not bronze, from a few feet away which I guess is o.k. Candle sleeves which are plastic, not metal like my other quality fixtures, were dark gold, instead of off white, like pictured. Pounded long nails into 2 x 4, and spray painted candle sleeves heirloom white.
The six lights of my extra large fixture were not symmetrical and could not be adjusted by turning center rod which can normally be done. Handy husband had to remove bottom, wiring and two bolts. Upper one allowed the spacing of the arms of lights to be adjusted evenly.
If you're fuzzy like me, and not handy, this is not the fixture for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvtoreno Beautiful in my foyer!
We ordered this light in X large and I was a bit nervous that it would be too large. However, I have a two story ceiling in my foyer and when the electrician installed it, I was thrilled! With the 6' of chain supplied, it hung at the perfect height. We have had lots of compliments, and the amount of light is just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pinewild2 Great design for today's clean-lined but traditional decor.
First admired these chandeliers at a friend's mountain home and decided to use them in my home. I used two small ones over my kitchen island and one large over my round breakfast table. Wonderful look, but.....be sure and use lower wattage bulbs or they can be a little glaring. I had a dimmer installed for the breakfast table one.

I'm doing some updating and this fixture is just what my bedroom needed. It would also look great in a foyer or kitchen. It's well made and a perfect choice for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Remodelaholic Beautiful Fixture
I love this light fixture! Unfortunately, we were not able to have ours hang by the chain due to only eight foot ceilings. My husband did not want to give our sons any reasons to try to make them swing!! They do not sit flush with the ceiling however, a little lopsided I guess you could say. Not any fault of the fixture but due to the wonderful electricians when our home was built. Something to do with the "mounting box" in the ceiling? Our previous light had only one mounting bracket where as this is a double bracket. Anyway, we will have to figure out something to wedge between the ceiling and light fixture that is safe and unnoticeable. Still a beautiful light!!
