Drum Pendant Shade Adapter - Recessed Can Light 4.5 5 93 93
Love this item I bought this with the drum pendent can light adapter - easy to install with instant impact. High quality items that completely changed the look of our room. LOVE IT June 4, 2012
Does the job...but The diffuser does what it was made to do but it does not sit level when installed in the shade and cast an uneven shadow around the edge not sure if this is due to the diffuser being warped or the shade. Otherwise works very well. May 24, 2012
Beautiful Shade Ordered these to make some pendant lights above our kitchen island, love the look! We always know we are getting a quality product from Ballard Designs. May 9, 2012
Easy to install & love shade options My husband gets a little weary when something arrives in a big box, usually a lot of work for him...not this time! I was going to do it, but he offered (I think he wanted to prove me wrong on the ease of installation). Hung it over my desk in my home office. We have high ceilings, so it really helps ground the room. I went with seagrass shade, wanted some texture, and I love it! Please offer more of your light options with the can adaptor. May 7, 2012
Love concept, but doesn't fit in shade as pictured. So, I too prefer this diffuser to having exposed bulb and for the softening effect. However, if you look at the photo shown on the website, the diffuser actually settles up IN the shade. Ours does not. It is more at the bottom rim of the shade. There is no way it can fit inside the shade without risking ruining my seagrass shade. My husband is considering "shaving" it down a little, but might be risky. May 7, 2012
Only problem is . . . The lamp shade I turned into a pendant fixture is not very tall, so the metal piece that came w/the diffuser is too long. Once I figure out how to hang the diffuser, I'm sure it will look great. May 2, 2012
slightly smaller than the listed measurements This shade is slightly smaller than the listed measurements and I wish it came in more sizes, but overall it did the job and the price was reasonable. April 18, 2012
Perfect! Great product -perfect for over the dining room table. April 13, 2012
Okay It took some finessing. The diffuser is not perfectly level with the bottom rim of the drum shade but it is close. I prefer looking at the little unlevel diffuser than I would looking at the light bulb, so it is good. April 6, 2012
Great way to update a light fixture. These shades really updated my kitchen island. I was so pleased that they fit the pendant fixtures. April 4, 2012
Great Invention! I was so excited when I saw these. Ordered two 14 inch with cork shade to go over kitchen island. Got them installed in less than 15 minutes. I also ordered the shade diffusers but not sure if I like them, it diffuses the light nicely but does not sit in the drum shade properly. Going to give it a few days and think about them. Now only if Ballard would make crystally pendants with this adapter to go over my bathtub. Hint hint! March 29, 2012
Poor Quality This is not what I expected from Ballard Designs. First, the product had to be shipped three separate times due to damage and not being packed very well. Second, I was very disappointed in the quality of the product. It just looks cheap. The diffuser (purchased as an option) doesn't fit evenly at the bottom of the shade and it can't be adjusted. On a positive note, the pendant light installed very easily. It is a great concept to retrofit an existing "can" light. March 11, 2012
Makes the adapter even better We already had several pendents and loved the "new" look they created in the room. The only problem we had was the brightness created at eye level when sitting directly under the pendents. The diffuser solves this problem perfectly. Still looks stylish. The unevenness described by other reviews is minimal. February 29, 2012
Amazing Lighting Difference! I live in vintage condo in Chicago with high ceilings and lots of light. The original developer who converted the condos used recessed lighting in almost every room, including two sort of "spot" lights in the dining room to highlight the 100+ year old built in. The lighting never really made sense. My designer showed me these adaptable drum kits in the Ballard Design cataglog and said it would be perfect for these 2 random recessed lights in the dining room. We ordered them and he installed them over the weekend. Since the ceiling is high, we also ordered the shade diffusers so you couldn't see the actual bulb. They look AMAZING!!! I love that I didn't have to hire and electrician to come and do something expensive. This is a quick, easy and GREAT way to update your lighting in any room. Have fun! February 24, 2012
Service was terrific We ordered pendant lights with 18" soft shades. The box arrived with significant damage and one shade was damaged as a result. Once installed, we saw that the 18" shades were too big for their location.(our fault) We decided to see if we could return and replace these (one damaged) shades with smaller ones. One call to the Ballard Design service number and 3 days later we had our new shades installed. No interrogation,no accusations, no arguments, no extra charges. They provided something long missing in this world. SERVICE. February 18, 2012
these fit your standard pendant fixtures these shades are perfect!!!... i called and talked to someone-i was concerned that they would only fit ballard design hardware---and, they told me that is correct. I didnt' believe them---thank god i didn't cuz they fit perfect...just like any other standard pendant shade you buy anywhere else! they are beautiful and fit perfect! i highly recommend them!!....i will say, i got the natural ones...when you actually turn the light on, they look more like the burlap ones rather than natural.... but that's fine by me! January 31, 2012
5-minute installation After the quick installation I can see why this item has been back-ordered. IT WAS SO EASY!! I ordered this kit in mid-Nov and didn't receive it until mid-Jan. To BD's credit, they did contact me via email throughout the two months to ensure I still wanted the item delivered, even though it was taking so long to receive. I would definitely order one of these again, even if I had to wait another 2 months. The pic I uploaded shows a burlap shade. It looks washout out in the pic but in reality you can see the texture of the burlap very well (I have a 40w bulb in). January 28, 2012
Easy to install & lovely to look at I got the grass green shade to create a "reading corner" in my living room that has 12 can lights. It looks really nice, and it was super easy to install and adjust the height of the cord. I kind of wish there was a bottom to the shade so you didn't look up at a bare lightbulb (even if decorative lightbulb), but I think I saw in the catalog they now sell this. Go for it! January 13, 2012
Nice light softening effect I bought these to go with the drum shades for pendant lights over my kitchen island. The product was delivered very quickly from Ballard. The diffusers do a super job of hiding the light bulbs--and creating a softer effect lighting. Super easy to install--they simply hang from the fixture inside the shade with a harp and a screw on finial at the bottom. They didn't want to hang exactly straight--the harp doesn't fit quite properly over the pendant, but they seem to "settle" out and hang fairly straight after a few hours. I know at some point I'll have to clean dead bugs out of them--that's the downside of any of these bulb hiders, but oh well. I am pleased with them and would buy them again. December 16, 2011
what a nifty find upon ordering new lights for my house I had never even heard of a light difusser but alas there they were on Ballard's website. These things are sooooo cool. They look awesome. I bought them for my ballard lights and lights I had purchased somewhere else and they all fit perfectly. I love you guys. I have ordered lights, rugs, magnets, etc. and I am never disappointed with what you send. I can hardly turn around fast enough and your packages are already at my front door. I love your products and I hope to keep shopping with you for years to come! December 9, 2011
Nice soft glow The diffuser gives our kitchen light a soft glow. It is sturdy and easy to install. The only drawback I see is that it is not level. That is, it isn't even with the shade all the way across. (Could be the shade, although I am not sure.) December 4, 2011
Product Exceeded Expectations This light fixture looked even better than pictured in the catalog. Sometimes it's hard to tell from catalog pictures, or online pics, but this item delivered in terms of quality, color of red, texture of material, etc. I would definitely recommend this product, and will now, myself, order additional items from Ballard due to having this good experience. November 29, 2011
So Easy to do Holy Cow! This was the easiest thing I have ever done. I put these in my kitchen and they look fantastic. It separates the kitchen and family room and I cannot believe the difference it made. Love love love it! November 17, 2011
So easy to install!!! I received this drum shade light with the adapter. It literally went up in 5 minutes and it took that long because I didn't know how low I wanted it to hang! I have the seagrass shade which has a bit of brown and green in it. Goes perfectly in my new green kitchen but would look great with any paint color. Thanks Ballard Designs! September 29, 2011
Great idea - good look I had been thinking about getting the pendant light adaptor for a while (about a year) and finally ordered it. The price is great, good value, and a really nice look and product execution. However .... Not as easily installed as I would have wanted. The unit screws into an existing can light in place of the bulb, shade attaches and you're done - that is if you're willing to accept good enough. The design of the hook and cord attachmemt leaves the cord off center and it took an hour of manipulating to get the bulb/shade/diffuser to hang straight. It looks great - but a lot of effort was pit into balancing and straightening. September 24, 2011
SOOOO EASY Trust me when I say I am not handy...but WOW...I put the Pendant up in no joke...10 minutes! I LOVE IT! My husband came home and said looks like someone called their Father to help while I was gone. Looks like the joke is on him. Thanks again Ballard Designs for helping me to make my house a home! September 8, 2011
Great product! What a great product! I got the look I wanted over my kitchen island without the expense of an electrician. So thrilled! August 24, 2011
Great product. I am more than pleased with my new Drum Pendant Shade with Adapter. Very easy to install and looks prettier than I had expected. Ballard has proven again that they have good, quality products. Thank you. July 20, 2011
Fabulous! I was intimidated at first but this light took less than 5 minutes to install and it looks gorgeous. I'd purchase more in a heartbeat. July 17, 2011
Great way to change the look of any room! I love the look. The canopy is large and will make it look much more substantial. It hasn't been installed yet, but I can see just by the quality it is going to make the room. Perfect for our little cottage, although I could see it in our main house as well. Thank you.
