Rated 4 out of 5 by RhodeIsland beautiful design, OK quality
I love the design of this lamp. I was not sure about the glass pendant at the bottom when I saw it on line but in person it really balances the rusticness of the piece. It came very quickly and was easy to install. My only issue with it is the antique silver which looks cheap up close. Luckily it is hanging overhead and most people won't see that detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by designerdame Stunning focal point!
What a room transformation! This fixture looks like an art piece and really stepped up the look of my dining room. Even my husband was blown away. Too bad we waited this long. Now I'm so pleased with this purchase that I'd love to get 2 more to hang from my living room's cathedral ceiling. But will have to save up a bit for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mirakel Love it, but not the same as in the picture.
I love my chandelier, but the picture is not accurate. I ordered the "aged silver" and it is MUCH more "aged" and "rustic" than the posted picture. It still works well in the space, and I do love it, but I wish the Ballard Design picture was more accurate (it seems shinier in the picture; it is NOT this shiny, it is actually more "aged" than the picture).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olga Very pretty and unique fixture
I love this chandelier. It is unique and very pretty. It casts beautiful shadows on the ceiling and the walls. The size is perfect - not too big, not too small, and provides plenty of light. Quality is pretty good. I am a very satisfied buyer of this item.

The Orb Chandelier is beautiful. It instantly became the centerpiece for the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Perfect for our foyer!
I had been eyeing this light for months and am so glad we finally bought it! It's very subtle but pretty and gives off a good amount of light without too much shadowing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by McToad Cute light fixture
I purchased the small Orb Chandelier for my dining room and loved it so much I purchased the petite to use for my 1 1/2 story foyer in an open concept house. Unfortunately when I received it I realized it is too small to have much impact. I'm going to repurpose it for a bedroom cause I still really like it. I purchased both in the old silver finish which I think gives them a nice airy feel, not too heavy but still unique enough that they stand out.

This is a definite statement piece. Love love love it, but will love it more once our new Messina table (purchased by Ballard) arrives. It is absolutely beautiful, rustic but modern. We get alot of "wow's" from friends and family.

by Pianoteacher Such a unique fixture!
My builder said this was his favorite thing in our new house! My lighting was just installed, and I love this little fixture in my entryway. My house is mostly traditional, but this light gives the entry a unique little twist. The light it sheds on the ceiling is beautiful!

I searched a lot of sites and kept coming back to this light. I am so glad that I did, I love it. It is hanging over my kitchen table in an open concept kitchen/family room. I ordered the small wrought iron. It is a little more rusty than true black wrought iron, but it looks great. I bought the magnetic strands of crystals and attached them to add a little more bling and I love that too!

I was a bit surprised by the size of the box when it was delivered and, even when I took it out, it seemed too big. However, it looks absolutely stunning and I've had compliments from everyone who has seen it. It made for a beautiful Thanksgiving table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by minigirl222 Great Quality and Size
When I ordered the large orb, I was afraid that it would be too small for my space - a cathedral ceiling (2 story) open foyer that is very large and open. It arrived in great shape and the size is perfect. It was easy to install. It is also very bright. I was concerned that with only 6 bulbs, the light would not be bright enough for my big space but its perfect - we used round clear bulbs of the suggested wattage and it gives off tons of light.

I ordered the small brushed silver version of the Orb chandelier for my dining room. My home is a 1950's ranch-style with 8' ceilings, so we couldn't use much of the provided chain, but it still looks great! It makes the dining room look current and fresh.
The only thing I've noted is that the chandelier casts shadows when lit at night since the lights are reflecting through the orb. It may just be my dining room, but it's the only thing I'm not crazy about.
Otherwise, it's beautiful and I would recommend it if you're looking to freshen up your room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zzzz lots of light, pretty and classic
I was searching for an iron orb light fixture after seeing a few similar light fixtures in Scandinavian churches. This fixture is large and open. Completely beautiful.
I first invested in a competitor's version, but it was welded incorrectly and I returned it. The Ballard version is wonderful. It was easy to install, has lots of chain, and two sets of light covers.

We purchased this chandelier for our dining room. We are thrilled with it! The mfr provides lots of chain length. The bronze is beautiful - not too much red hugh - mainly black. We purchased the small and was the perfect size for our 12x10 dining room. The only criticism is i wish they supplied the round light bulbs. We put in typical candelabra bulbs and they dont do justice. Luckily we found the round bulbs easily at Home Depot. It provides plenty of light and we have ours on a dimmer switch which at night looks fantastic!

I had my eye on this chandelier for over a year, I tried to find something less expensive for my 2 story entry but nothing else would do. So i pretty much begged my husband and waited for a sale to save a little money. We just installed it this past weekend and I am in love, just like I thought I would be. My husband really likes it a lot and it fits the space very well. The shapes it casts on the walls and ceiling are fabulous. I ordered the large orb in the bronze. To give it a little more modern look, we used round lightbulbs. If we have to sell our house or move some day, I am taking this light with me!

The Chandelier was packaged perfect and arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The directions were easy to understand. The lighting is perfect over my kitchen island. I hung 2 in a 6 foot space.

This Orb Chandelier is beautiful, bought the small for above our dining table and it fits perfectly. It does not take up a lot of visual weight and yet is a show stopper. Everyone who sees this is in awe and tells me that it is remarkably stunning.

I love this chandelier and get so many compliments on it - even from interior decorators. It hangs above our counter-height pub table which is situated in front of windows. I didn't realize when I purchased this but with the design being so open it doesn't obstruct the views beyond our windows at all - an added bonus. The only issue I have with it is that the lights don't hang completely straight. I need to reassess if there is a simple adjustment that can be made - I hope so!

Very very pleased. We ordered two in the bronze. One over our stairwell and one on the second floor living area. They are classic and lovely. Go with just about any decor and have gotten compliments on them. Almost bought similar ones at another store for double the price. Glad I didn't, these are better in price and appearance, great quality too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CatinaHat Very up to date
I ordered the medium for a townhouse dining room that isn't very large. The fixture is pretty big, so I had to hang it as close to the ceiling as possible to make it work. Also, one of the iron orbs was slightly bent, so I had to turn that part towards the back. I don't know if that happened in the shipping or not, but it wasn't noticeable once I turned it around, and it would have been a real hassle to exchange it because the outer packaging was pretty beat up. Make sure of your sizing before ordering.
