Really beautiful, BUT...not finished well
Laura from Valdosta, GA – Verified Buyer
Pros: First of all, the light is really beautiful and made with high quality materials. It can take (3)100 Watt bulbs but I used (3) 60 Watt bulbs and it is plenty bright (I use my dimmer to adjust the brightness). The shade is a nice pure white, but not stark white. The brushed nickel design is easily removable for a different look. I have never installed a light fixture in my life but I was able to follow the instructions and install it in about 45 min. Cons: It looks unfinished at the top where it attaches to the ceiling for 2 reasons. First, if you zoom in at the top you will see the round "cover" but you can also see the 2 screws holding it in place (and, not shown, the slots that the screw fit in). Now I can live with that. But what really bothers me is at the very center of the cover plate is a large opening. Much larger than the skinny silver pendant part that fits up at the top and what shows through that large opening and actually protrudes down some is a black rubber nipple. Why is there not a finished nickel cover to hide it? All the other pendants in my house are completely finished top to bottom. I sent All Modern close ups of this and asked if some piece was missing. They contacted the manufacturer and said "no". Also, that nipple does not fit tight and snug. It wobbles around in that opening and makes getting the pendants glass bottom on a real pain. I had to have help with that part as it was moving so much at the top. And one last thing. There are 3 metal "stays" or "prongs" that are set along the inside bottom of the shade to prevent the glass from going up inside it too far. I found that it didn't allow the glass piece to go up enough for me to screw the finished pieces in place. I had to take pliers and bent them up as much as I could and I still had great difficulty getting that glass piece in. Finally I unscrewed the piece that the glass goes on to bring it down lower, but still only had enough room for a clear rubber circle and the end cap. I wish I could post my close up pics for you. But, I didn't return the light because I'm probably the only one who will notice these things. I just like attention to detail. And the light fixture is absolutely perfect in my modern dining room.
Beautiful and well built...

Alecia Necklace lights are even more beautiful in person and very well built. Installation location needs to accept the solid down rods (e.g., no swag type installation). Down rods are provided in numerous pieces of various lengths, making customizing installation fairly easy.

I've gotten so many compliments on these drum pendant fixtures. They're the first thing you see when you walk into the kitchen. They are gorgeous! One of my favorite features is the metal geometric design piece slides right over the top, so if you decided you no longer wanted that look you can simply just slide it off. Great quality fixture for the price as well. Highly recommending!

Lana from GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Verified Buyer
Used this in our classic/mid-century remodel house built in 1946, and it blended beautifully. light cast seemed more yellow, despite the bluish-light bulbs used, but overall, love it.
Love our Benson drum pendant
Judy from Anacortes, WA – Verified Buyer
This pendant light is exactly as the picture shows. Very good looking! on arrived on time as promised. My husband put it up with no problem. We are very pleased. Pros: Good instructions for installing the light. Cons: None
Great light, great price
Jamie from Vernon Hills, IL – Verified Buyer
We needed something for our foyer that didn't hang too low, and this light is perfect. With three bulbs, it adequately lights the space, and it comes with multiple length rods so you can hang it at the right height for your space. Really happy with this purchase.
Laura from Evansville, IN – Verified Buyer
Great quality light fixture. Shipped very fast. My husband installed it above my counter height kitchen table in less than an hour. He put a dimmer switch on it so that it can be very bright when needed yet soft and dim when needed. First thing people notice when they walk in my kitchen. I have gotten many compliments. Love it!
