Rated 4 out of 5 by dezine1 Great light
The light is everything I wanted it to be, translucent. There is a grouping of pictures over the kitchen table and the light is perfect hanging in front of them since all the
sides are clear glass.
It's gotten great reviews but, it doesn't give off a lot of light to read the paper. It also appears to be a light bulb dangling from a string from an outsider looking through the back windows.
Either way, it makes a statement and I like it.

This lamp is perfect for my dinning room. I have 8foot ceilings and a 60 inch round table, so I went with the medium size lamp and we love it. I put in and Edison light bulb,and it is dim, but I like the mood it sets for dinning. Husband said was easy to instal so that is a plus too!

We have been looking to update the light fixtures in our home and came across this one in the catalog. Our ceilings are fairly low so we ordered the small pendant for the entry way. It is lovely! It doesn't give off as much light as our last fixture but it makes up for it in terms of style. I am contemplating ordering two more for our upstairs hallway- we love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DecoUpdating Quality light with cool look
We love these pendants. They're perfect over our kitchen island where we have tall ceilings and needed to have some larger pendant lights. We put filament bulbs in them and love the modern look. My husband installed them himself after we ordered the recessed light converter kit from a different website. He commented on how well made and sturdy the lights and chains were as he was installing them.

After months of searching (i'm an interior designer so i'm picky), glad I found these lights. I made mock-ups of the lights to determine the size that would best work for me. I ended up with (2) "Small" Eldridge Pendants over my 10' L island. The bottom of the fixture is about 31" above the counter. The scale is perfect! I purchased the lamp (bulb) that Ballard sells to give it the antique feel. I also purchased the longer pendant fixture over my dining table, but haven't installed it yet. These are great fixtures!!

We purchased 2 in bronze for over our kitchen island. We also bought the 3 light chandelier version for our dining room. We have an open floor plan and both light look great! The small lights are pretty large, which I like. Substantial in size but clear so it's not overpowering. Some complained about the the edison light bulbs not being bright enough. True. Edisons don't offer a lot of down light & so those bulbs aren't the best option in an area where you need a lot of down light. This is more of a bulb issue than a fixture issue. The edisons look great, but if you need more down light, I'd suggest a standard clear bulb. Still looks good. So glad I finally bought these lights.

Swapped out my builder grade fixture for this stunner, and couldn't be more pleased. Great look. Not too difficult to install. Quality could be better, but no visible imperfections. Packaged very well for transit.

This light is really gorgeous. I ordered the gold medium pendant. They are much larger than what I thought by looking at the Ballard photos. I was worried the medium would be too small for over my kitchen island, but it's plenty large.

I purchased the middle size fixture of the three. Due to tall ceiling and weight of fixture had it installed. Hung in small foyer with vintage style bulb. Looks fantastic with newly decorated transitional room design.

We have a large game room that had 2 ceiling fans when we moved in. I replaced the fans with the Eldridge Pendants and they look fabulous. I have the medium size and 2 are the perfect compliment to such a large room. They are very substantial and a bit industrial--perfection! The finish is a beautiful oil rubbed bronze.

I got the large pendant for over my kitchen table and it is beautiful and really makes a statement in the room. The only thing to keep in mind is while it says you can use a 150W bulb, you could never use something that bright with an exposed bulb. I also don't like the yellow tint of the Edison bulbs so I'm using a 75W clear bulb, which is on a dimmer and I have to keep it about halfway dim so it doesn't hurt your eyes. Luckily I have plenty of other light in my kitchen because this definitely can't be used as a main source of light.

After first seeing and then reading the reviews for these pendants, we bought them. Absolutely, no buyer's remorse. They are perfect in every way...of course you must really like them first:>) Asked a friend after we first had hung one pendant and we could tell he wasn't impressed. Suggested the light was too low. So the next one we hung one chain link higher. We again asked which one he liked and he selected the first light at the original lower level. So much for audience input. When I pointed out it was the same one he suggested be higher, he said the fact the light now had a bulb in it made the difference...sure. We did install the bulbs they found in Tom Edison's basement (aka Lowes). While they do finish the light's looks, don't expect them to provide much useful illumination. At full 60 watts the clear bulbs hurt your eyes. Therefore, they are now on a dimmer switch, which makes them more bearable , but more useless as well. Keep in mind these bulbs really aren't made for much illumination. Comparable 60 watt contemporary bulbs provide much more illumination (lumens). Fortunately, we also have overhead recessed lighting, so these are more like having electric candles.

I put the medium size over my kitchen table. I love the shape and clean lines! Its pretty heavy with nice tempered glass and the metal has a really pretty oil rubbed bronze finish. I love it! Don't hesitate to buy the vintage light bulbs for it bc regular bulbs just don't do the fixture justice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by westTXshopper3 Exactly like the description- perfect in my hallway!
This pendant arrived quickly and looks great hanging in my hallway! Husband said it was easy to hang, except there was no paperwork provided, to indicate which was the positive and negative wires- they were not your typical color scheme. Looks great though!

by MasterPanda I love my pendant!
I purchased the medium sized pendant and it is large. We did not use any chain because it is hung from a 9' ceiling. Make sure you have two people to install it because the light is heavy. I think it looks fantastic. The bars on the top cast a shadow in the room when the light is on. I installed this fixture in a study that has additional downlighting. The pendant looks great!

I have a stair landing and upstairs hall with tall 20 feet vaulted ceilings. I bought one medium for the landing, and 2 small for the upstairs hall. I used the vintage lights. I was going to put them on a dimmer, but decided since they were 60 watts I would not need to dim them. I love the sculptural simple unique look. After looking for hanging pendants for 2 years, I must say these are perfect and I made the right choice. As these replaced builder grade goldtone lantern pendants, these make a big statement.

LOVE this pendant! We bought the middle size for the entry in our new home but exchanged it for the largest size. So glad we did — it makes a simple, modern, industrial statement and complements the rest of our home's look. We ended up buying the small size for our back hall, and it's perfect for the space, as well. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4ForTheBeach High quality, versatile light fixture
After reading many of the reviews and posted photos of the light fixture, I decided to take a chance and order 2 medium pendants. I was concerned the fixtures may look too industrial or modern but also needed something that would not block sight lines in our entry way to the outside. The fixtures are just perfect and I believe they would work with many, many design styles. The quality of the Eldridge pendant is comparable to fixtures and lamps that cost 4 or 5 times more in price and are in the same area of our home. The only challenge I would note is the fixture dictates using a vintage style light bulb and I have been unable to find one that is brighter than 60 watts. So, I have had to settle for a slighter darker entryway than originally expected. It still works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vahomeowner Beautiful, different
We purchased the large (18") model to hang in our two-story foyer in place of a more traditional chandelier. An Edison-style (antiqued) bulb goes well with this piece and gives it a nice, vintage/modern look. It looks fantastic and gets many compliments.
The glass is tricky to clean after it's been handled during the hanging process--consider using a microfiber cloth instead of paper towels. Once it's cleaned up, just needs occasional dusting as the glass is obviously large and noticeable given the size of the fixture.

We were very pleased with the light after pondering buying it for several weeks. The box arrived quickly after ordering and the light was impeccably packaged, there was not a chance of glass shattered, which was my top concern. We had no problems getting it hung or adjusting it for height. Great product, love Ballard.

We hung this light in our dining room last night and already love it. We got the medium and it was the perfect impact over our small table. We love the way the light goes through and does not block our view through the picture window. Highly recommend putting the light on a dimmer switch. This is a heavy duty light with quality craftsmanship!! Came packaged well in great shape.

We have 18' ceilings and replaced our builder grade entry light with the largest Eldridge. It looks beautiful! So unique, classic yet on trend. My husband and I like different styles, but this suited both of us. We looked eVerywhere for the right light - that was also reasonably priced. It was easy for my husband to install (on a scaffolding). We are using an Edison bulb for added effect. It was delivered perfectly and fast. We are extremely happy with our Ballard purchase.

I ordered two of these pendants, one medium for my living room, one small for my foyer. The medium is quite large, which I like. I love the simple, clean lines of the fixture. Both fixtures came very well packaged without a scratch on them. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Harris I love the look. Old charm of a lantern with a modern flair.
I love the pendants. My husband installed them & the only difficulty was getting all 3 to hang straight. I think the chain construction made that more of a challenge. My husband wishes the chains had been eliminated & just hung with a cord- thus we would not have had to struggle with the chain links & trying to get all 3 to hang at the same angle. We didn't realize that with rectangular pendants you have to carefully watch the angles so that they are all hanging perfectly in a row. Circular pendants don't require that kind of fussing. But, now that they are installed- I think they look great & would purchase them again.
