Rated 5 out of 5 by TNdesigns Looks amazing
I ordered the small orb chandelier in bronze for a reading area in master bedroom. It looks amazing and completes the room. It was exactly what the area needed. Perfect size too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarlaatAlwaysNesting Amazing Orb Chandelier!!
I almost squealed when this chandy came out of the delivery box. Loved it in the online photos but love it even more in my dining room. I ordered the small, wondering if it would be large enough over an 8 seat table, but it's the perfect size. Hubby added a dimmer switch so that we could adjust the glow from the bulbs. The Orb Chandelier is not just a light, it's a piece of art.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luvmylite This is a fantastic looking chandelier.
Ordered the large chandelier to hang in the foyer of my house. I love it. The circular shape looks great. It is well made. The clear glass ball finial is a cool, funky addition. So happy with this chandelier.

I had been eyeing this beautiful chandelier for a long time. I finally ordered it after searching other websites. I never found another one that I loved as much as this one. We have not hung it yet, as we are in the middle of a renovation. But I love it!! The gold color is what I would call gold leaf. It matches our mirrors perfectly.

LOVE THIS CHANDELIER, I HAD SHOPPED MANY DIFFERNT ONES BUT WHEN I SAW THIS ONE I KNEW THIS WAS PERFECT! I ordered it and it arrived in two days. I was so excited to get it hung but unfortunately a piece on it was broke so the electrician could not hang. I called customer service and they were awesome with the return process and the quick delivery of my new one. THIS ONE IS PERFECT!! MANY COMPLIMENTS

I love this chandelier. It gave a great updated look to my breakfast room. What I didn't expect is that it casts a large shadow beneath it, making it difficult to read the morning paper. I'd still recommend it because it's so pretty.

I ordered both the small and large for my 84"X30" dining table and preferred the oversized look (large orb pictured). I am very happy with the quality and beauty of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KCostello Pleasantly Surprised!
I wanted a light fixture that made a statement yet didn't block my view. When I first got it out of the box, I thought I made a BIG mistake on ordering the wrong size. It looked enormous. My husband hated it but I put it up (or had my brother put it up) anyways and WOW...I LOVE it!! Everyone complements on how nice it looks. I got the 29"D size and you can see in the photo, my table is a normal size. Highly recommend..high quality and super easy to install.

This chandelier is GORGEOUS!!!! It was installed yesterday, I showed the pics to friends and family. They couldn't believe how much of a difference the chandelier made to the breakfast nook. I was told it looked like a store showroom or magazine. I love it!

I had been eyeing this Chandelier for a couple of years and I finally was able to purchase. I am so thrilled with it, it goes really well with my decor. Of course Ballard Designs has a great selection of chandeliers that it was difficult deciding which one, but I always came back to the Orb chandelier. I would definitely recommend this or any product from Ballard Designs.

I love this chandelier. I was between the silver and gold, but we have a lot of artwork with gold frames and since golds are coming back in style, we chose gold. I got the small one (23 inch diameter). We took the glass ball off the bottom. This is for our vacation house dining area. I am considering buying the silver ones for pendants over an island in my full-time house. I like this light that much. I put in the round bulbs. I think the gold color is great. Not too bright. Soft gold.

I looked at many orb shaped chandeliers before deciding on this one. Some required assembly, others were much more expensive for the same look. I am very pleased with the quick delivery and ease of installation of this light.

by kmags1126 Perfect for our dining room!
We were looking to upgrade our dining room light fixture before Thanksgiving and came across the Ballard Designs Orb Chandelier. The price was right and the reviews were great, so we decided to give it a try. It is absolute gorgeous and has transformed our dining room! For reference, we ordered the small and it fits perfectly in our dining room. We are so excited to show off this great new chandelier on Thanksgiving Day.

Love this fixture over our SWFL home's dining room table. It's airy enough to not overload the area, yet has a wonderful statement.

This chandelier is really awesome, and it's much bigger than you'd expect (like other reviewers have mentioned). I thought it would be too small in my 13 x 19 room, but the small size is perfect. Love the crystal orb at the bottom as well - such a nice finishing touch!

Rated 2 out of 5 by julili happy with fixture, UNHAPPY with lack of clarity on dims.
I like my fixture. I'm really disappointed that I cannot use the rod that was pictured as part of the fixture because of the lack of clarity in indicating dimensions. Just so you don't make the mistake I made, the height of the fixture is to the top of the orb not to the canopy as pictured. The rod (which is pictured as part of the fixture) is in addition to the overall height. So for the large fixture add 15" to the 35" overall height. I am not sure why this is not made clear with the specifications. A dimensioned line drawing would have been in order. I am now faced with exchanging the fixture for the smaller one. I'll be paying the electrician all over again if I do. But truly the fixture does not look good without the rod and hanging 6" from the celling on a chain. I'm really bummed with the documentation Ballad offered for dimensions on the height of the fixture.

This completely changed the look of our room! We absolutely love it and so does everyone else when they come over. Its the first thing people see and want to know where it came from. We went with the medium size and its perfect in our family room.

Had wanted this for years, and finally splurged on it for my formal living room. I had specifically chosen the orb because of its round shape - which coordinates nicely with the round furniture arrangement in the room - and the fact that it is possible to see through the fixture (I didn't want anything that blocked the openness and views throughout the house). I went with the large size because the size of the room dictated somewhere between the Medium and Large, and I'm very happy I did because the size makes such a statement. I'm 100% happy! It's beautiful. Worth the wait and the eventual splurge!

I searched for a long time to find a chandelier that was functional, pretty, and affordable. After searching for many months in just about every store I could find, I decided on this (when there was a 15% off sale) and I'm so glad I did. Our home is somewhat traditional so I was worried this piece would look too rustic or modern, but it fits with our decor very nicely. We purchased the bronze (which is basically black) in the small size and it's perfect for our space: our ceiling is angled, and the dining room is roughly 11x11 and opens up into the kitchen. This chandelier is great for small spaces because it makes a statement and provides a lot of light without closing off the ceiling space (we chose to hang it 37 inches from the top of a table that is 30 inches high and 70 inches long). It's definitely a statement piece. We tried other drum pendants which make the room feel small because they took up what little space we had. The chandelier came safely packaged, and was very easy to assemble and install - my husband and father in law installed in about 30 minutes without any problems because it's very light and easy to hold. Ours is connected to a dimmer which I highly recommend - the 60w bulbs that are recommended produce tons of light (we chose candlelight bulbs) and create a beautiful shadow. I would definitely recommend purchasing this.

I really love the Gold Orb Chandelier, it fit perfectly in the space and is just as it looked on the website. The transparent design is perfect for my small room, and I hung it very close to the ceiling and eliminated most of the chain from which it hangs. It offers quite a bit of light and is just right for my room. THANKS!

by SFLAMOM Great Light!
I posted a before and after because I think it is such a big difference. My husband installed it for me and he had to cut the screw to make it flush, but other than that it was an easy install. I went with the candelabra lights and no ornament on the bottom, but I may change to round lights. Now the only problem is when to buy the petite orb for the foyer to match. It was well packaged and was delivered quickly.

I love the design of the chandelier. However, I ordered the gold and it is NOT gold like the description or picture. The color has much more orange and it copper. I am very disappointed in the representation of the color as the other metals in our home are the gold color as pictured.

We just got this pendant light for our 2-story family room because we liked the orb aspect. However we were surprised that it's lopsided from different angles- thought it would be 'orb-shaped' from every angle. Not sure what we'll do at this point, return or keep.
