We just had the electrician hang the fixture and it is wonderful. Just enough over the glass table with ample light. Thank you

This was our first large light fixture from Ballards. It exceeded our expectations and looks better than the one we were considering that was three times the price.

by PRchick Stunning chandeliers hanging in our party barn
We bought two of the XL Chandeliers to hang in a massive party barn - they make the room. Everyone who comes in comments on how beautiful they are. I can't say they shed a ton of light, but that's not what we wanted for this space.

I absolutely love this chandelier! It instantly changed our dining room. We spent a lot of money on a table and chairs and didn't want to spend that much on a light fixture to hang above it. This chandelier was perfect! We get so many compliments...it's perfect!

This chandilier was chosen for its damp rating. However, the wonderful bonus is its unusual design and eye-catching appeal. I selected the petite size since our bathroom is not very large. It was the perfect size and adds the right amount of pizazz to our new bath design.

Very nice design and quality. Provides the obvious functional aspect of good lighting while also an attractive asthetic without being a distraction in the room. The small is fairly large in size so be sure to check measurements before ordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Torretta This product is outstanding!! So much value for the price
We are in love with our orb chandelier, also the sizing tips that I found on the Ballard site made selecting the correct size perfect! Everyone who comes to our new home raves about the beauty of the piece. I also purchased the sunburst medallion that sits on the ceiling above the light. It really looks much more expensive then the price we paid....thank you Ballard!

by Fit4life Petite Orb Chandelier lights beautifully
I have had my chandelier hanging now for a few days and I am very pleased. I had electrician install a dimmer suitable for LED lights. The first set of LED bulbs bought online began to act up after the first day like flickering, pulsing and finally not dimming. Hoping it was just a bulb issue, I ran out to hardware store and bought a well known brand of LED. Sure enough my chandelier is lighting beautifully now. Love it!

The light is so fabulous! It replaced a ceiling fan that I thought I liked until I installed this fixture. It transformed my dining room! Everyone comments on how it looks. I have a farmhouse table and the light from the fixture truly complements the whole atmosphere I was trying to achieve.

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.

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.

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 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.

by ImaShopaholic "Extra Large" is an UNDERstatement
They "definitely" gave this chandelier the right name as far as description goes. The problem is, you still won't believe it's size, until you see it in person. I bought it sight unseen (online). It was on backorder with no date available at the time I placed my order (Nov 2014). It arrived just in time for the Christmas holidays & it is one of THE MOST satisfying purchases that I made the entire Christmas season!
I absolutely LOVE it! It was SO large in fact, I had to unbox it, just to get it through the corridor of my entry foyer. With that being said, please believe the reviews that say that this thing is MASSIVE. It needs to be in a VERY large space with VERY high ceilings (16ft or higher. My ceilings are 20" & it looks "enchanting"; especially from my upstairs balcony. It's definitely that OMG piece.
I was thinking of purchasing some sconces or lamps to add more light to the room because we previously had a large lighted ceiling fan (w/several lights) yet the room still felt dim due to the height of the ceilings. Well, this ORB Extra Large Chandelier served as a pleasant surprise as it immediately solved that problem. The room feels 50% brighter which makes my space feel even larger.
Assembly was pretty easy, I did it without assistance. We chose to pay an electrician to hang it simply because of the towering height of our ceilings, however, installation was pretty straight forward. It was wired just like any other chandelier would be.
I hadn't shopped at Ballard in years, but the quality of this piece has reminded me (the SHOPAHOLIC) why I need to shop here more. I'm hooked & about to order more lighting & wall decor after I finish this review!
If you have the space for this & are on the fence, GO FOR IT! You will LOVE it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by decoratingdiva222 A lovely statement piece
This Chandelier is just what I was looking for in my dining room. It is dramatic and elegant all at once. I played with the shape of bulbs for different looks and it is what people compliment the most in my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ivo16 Wonderful Chandelier
This chandelier is so great! It makes the whole room. I had it installed in the living room with high ceilings and it fits just right. I wasn't sure if this chandelier would be too large but it's just right. The chandelier also provides adequate lighting for the entire room. I love it. You won't be disappointed. I had a handy man install it and he said it was fairly easy to install. It doesn't weigh much at all. Beautiful.

Wow...this thing is big but a beauty. I was really worried when I got it bc it would not go through the door! Called Ballards and they said it doesn't come apart. FYI...it does! Just remove the screws on the center strip and pull. Cant wait to have it hung!

Rated 4 out of 5 by 12345asdfg Substantial Light
The Orb light is a nice airy metal light with a great modern flair to it. I love the orb design and it makes a great light pattern when illuminated. Does require two person to install as the bigger the light the heavier to hold while installing the electrical plate. It took about 30 minutes total. Would recommend. Be sure to use in a space that is high as the orb is a bit bigger then youd expect.

I LOVE this light! I purchased it back in September for our new home that was in the process of being built. It was on back-order until November. I had plenty of time to worry if it was the right size for my stairwell. As soon as I got the box I had my husband hanging it, and it fits perfectly! We have an 8x10 area that it covers - over our stairs and I purchased the small size. I would not want anything else! I would recommend this product to anyone!

Love this chandelier and it was easy to install! I like it because it's different and whimsical. It can take up to 60 watts each so it provides good lighting.
