Rated 5 out of 5 by Patina4me Far more expensive looking than what I paid.
The Lourdes 12 light chandelier looks great in my dining room (18x24) with 10 foot ceilings. The scale is perfect and the dimension and finish, quite nice. Looks far more expensive than it was.

After a lot of searching a chandelier for our kitchen in our new home, and I mean a lot of searching, I decided this was the one I wanted. We got the 8 light Lourdes. It is absolutely beautiful in our kitchen and receive compliments every time we have people over. I was looking for something with that industrial, medieval look, but also pretty and modern. This was exactly it. It was easy to install and we LOVE The design the light shadows make on the ceiling at night when all lit up. We used a dimmer for our light switch and this helps the chandelier create different moods perfect. We love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by COCODEVILLE Good quality!
I love this chandelier! I bought the 12-light size and it looks beautiful in my dining room. I was nervous to purchase it (and almost didn't) based on some reviews saying the quality was poor but I don't think that at all (and I'm quite picky about quality). I think it's gorgeous quality and really great for the low price. I put 40-watt bulbs in and it was REALLY bright due to being so many - I changed them out for 25 watt bulbs and it was much better. Highly recommend!!!

I ordered the eight light and three light Lourdes chandeliers for my entry hall and for over the stair landing. They are very disappointing. Rather than hefty substantial fixtures, they are scaled down and delicate. The three chains are very small. The eight light fixture is not even substantial enough to hang over my six-chair dining table. It might be okay over a small kitchen nook table.

We needed to replace our light fixture over the kitchen table. The old fixture was far too small for the space and the light was less than adequate. Fast forward to the Lourdes 12 light chandelier. It has a rustic elegance. the 12 lights provide wonderful light. It is well made and was easy for my husband to install. The first time it arrived damaged (the under wiring wasn't packaged/protected well). Ballard customer service was very easy to work with and sent a new one without any trouble. I highly recommend. A+ for the light and customer service.

OMG! I've been looking everywhere for an nice modern rustic chandelier (similar to RH but for a lot less!) for my bed room. I couldn't believe that I found one at the right price!! My husband and I just love everything about it. I got flame tip bulbs for it and a dimmer previously installed, OMG it's to die for! Thank you Ballard Design for my making it affordable for us and still look great!

Ordered the petite to put into stairway, exactly what I needed. Not too bulky and tons of light. Easy to install and adjust with the generous amount of chain provided. Very happy with this purchase.

This chandelier is made very well and I love it as does everyone else who has seen it. I just had someone tell me they saw the same chandelier in a decorating book.

We finally put up our chandelier (by an electrician) and after placing the bulbs, two of the 12 fixtures did not work (bulbs would not screw in all the way). Called Ballard and they were going to send us a new one. Luckily my husband was able to fix it and it looks gorgeous in our dining room!

We finally installed this chandelier in our foyer and it looks and functions great. It was easy to install and sheds a large amount of light. The only slight downside is that it is slightly smaller than I had imagined but that isn't the product's fault.

I loved this light from the moment I saw it in the catalog. I was not sure if I should get the large or small but I went with the large and I am glad I did. It is the perfect size over my dining room table. I had purchased at least 2 other lights prior to buying the Lourdes chandelier but was not completely happy so down they came. This is a gorgeous chandelier that makes a simple statement. Love it!!

I am very impressed with the overall quality of this chandelier. I have a high cathedral ceiling in the living room with wooden beams; it showcases this so nicely and looks high-end yet fits in with my rather eclectic furnishings. It was packed extremely well & installation was a breeze. My only complaint is the cost of shipping, <sigh>...

We recently had installed the Lourdes 12 light chandelier in our living room and love it. Our ceilings are fairly high and it looks stunning in the room. We have received many compliments on it. Would highly recommend!

I purchased this light for my entry way but it was to small in scale with the room height. We decided to put over our dining room table instead and love it!!! So many compliments.

We purchased this chandelier for our newly constructed outdoor living space and it's absolutely gorgeous! We love it and have had so many compliments from everyone who has seen it. This unique piece made our room that much more special! We would highly recommend purchasing the chandelier.

I bought this for the entry in my house which is 2 story so when you go up the stairs it is almost eye level and is seen from every room. living room, kitchen, dining room. It is rustic but with a finer look as the chains are fine and drape perfectly. It looks amazing when lit at night as well, since it is at eye level I use a dimmer to give a warm glow to the entry. I highly recommend this chandelier. It would be easy to install had it not been in a two story entry with 2 flights of stairs. Came packaged incredibly well in the box, perfect condition when opened.

We purchased the Lourdes 12 light chandelier for our narrow dining room. The fixture that came with our house, had heavy, iron arms and was too small for the room. The Lourdes is an open, 'light', airy design that goes perfectly in the small room because it does not overwhelm, even though we bought the largest option.
I am writing this review in December, even though we purchased the fixture in July, because I wanted time to use the fixture before reviewing.
It arrived nicely packaged and protected in its box. The fixture was quick to assemble, and easy to install (but my husband is an electrician). The finish is smooth, with no visible quality issues. We swagged the chain so that we could raise and lower the light when needed. There is plenty of chain to do so.
There are a couple of issues however. 1.) This is not an expensive fixture, and though it looks good, you can see the screws inside the rim if you look up underneath, which you will since it hangs from the ceiling. The screws are the same finish as the rest of the fixture, but they are noticeable 2.) It is not balanced and does not hang plumb straight. No matter what we did, it tilted a bit to the side. We ended up spray-painting some fishing weights to match the fixture and putting them in the candle cups to weigh down one side. The balance issue is not huge, but we noticed it.
Overall, we are very happy with with the Lourdes chandelier. It gives off alot of light without overwhelming the room, and we get many compliments on it.
I recommend it.

The light arrived quickly and seems to be of good quality. With 12 bulbs, it puts out plenty of light.

I had to have this chandelier when it very first came out. We even waited for it on back order. Now that I've lived with it in my LR for over 2 years, I can honestly say that I still love it just as much as I did at first.

I paid $219 for this piece on a Bring Home Ballard special. It's a beautiful fixture, especially considering the low price. I looked at chandeliers that were 10x the cost and up and ultimately decided on this one to replace the circa 2000 brass chandelier in our 2-story foyer. An electrician just finished hanging it in our home and wow - I just love it. I was concerned that it would not be large enough for our substantial foyer, and while the space could handle something larger, I really love this. Be sure to purchase the bulbs prior to paying someone to hang it to avoid an emergency run to the hardware store. I used the recommended 12 40w chandelier bulbs and they're perfect. This is a beautiful fixture at an amazing price.

I was a little nervous about the 12-light chandelier being too large for my room, but since it is more open and airy the size was absolutely perfect! I can't stop looking at it every time I pass by it...it really finishes off my dining room perfectly! I took a suggestion from one of the other reviews and ended up using 15 watt bulbs and will eventually put it on a dimmer. This has been my most favorite Ballard purchase yet! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!

I am thrilled with my new chandelier. The electrician installed it in less than an hour with a dimmer switch and it looks great over my rustic trestle dining table. I do wish that it was black iron instead of dark brown however that's an easy fix with a can of flat black spray paint!

I don't have it hung yet. So at this point all I can say is that upon first inspection I was very happy with the substantial size, color, and quality. I expect it to look very nice when hung over my kitchen table in a larger scale room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by boilermakers2000 Easy to hang
This in my 2 story entryway and I love it. It's nice and bright. I was worried about my husband hanging it since he only had an extension ladder...we planned on renting a tall folding ladder but it wouldn't fit in my SUV. My husband was able to extend his ladder, hang onto it with one hand while wiring the Lourdes with his other hand...I stood on another ladder and held the Lourdes up while he was wiring. I was afraid the chandelier would be too old-worldish in my house but it looks really nice and isn't too overpowering. Perfect size, not too large or small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MadaboutManhattan The Lourdes 12 light chandelier was easy to install.
The chandelier is light weight, easy to assemble and hang. It is a grand scale light that is not obtrusive in the space. Recommend using low watt bulbs and place on a dimmer switch.
