Opal Glass Plug-In Swag Style 12" High Pendant Light
I ordered 2, they arrived without trouble, they do not have chains and do not need them. They are fairly quick and easy, we already had hooks in the ceiling so we did not use their little hooks.
Hanging them was a bit weird, so make sure you read directions first. Uses clips on the cord! Read cord directions first! They do not hang straight down, they have a very slight tilt = 4 stars.
I like them, have one in the computer area with it plugged in behind my computer for turning on and off switch very close to plug and one over the corner table that is plugged in behind the sofa that connects to the wall light switch, and they provide good light.

Good light, too expensive.
I used a smaller glass shade on this and it looks much better. (The kind used for vanity wall fixtures works fine! They fit and then you use the ring provided to secure it.) So adaptable to hang where needed over the kitchen table. Looks really nice. The shade provided was unattractive and way too big. I was surprised when I opened the box as the shade is huge! Clips provided work well, as others said, read instructions so your light won't slip. This light looks really nice in my kitchen... but should be cheaper for what you get.

This light is just as advertised. Looks nice and sleek and gives good light. The only issue is that because of the way the cord attaches to the hook makes it not hang perfectly straight. For the price, I'll live with it.

Good, pretty, gentle lighting. I agree with other reviewers that the cord is odd, but it does fine with my bedroom/reading area decor. The cord hangs/drops nicely with the weight of the lamp, forming a smooth, straight line. Unfortunately, it is the excess length of the cord, minus the weight of the lamp, that then hangs oddly (stiff as it is). I found that pulling it tight solves this visual issue for me.

Great lamp, not-so-great cord
This is a really nice lamp, love the size, shape, style of it, and the price isn't bad either. My issue is the cord, which is stamped with black serial numbers. It's not really visible from far away, but the stamps are noticeable when you're close, and kind of ruin the clean, simple look I was going for. You could certainly weave the cord through a decorative chain or camouflage it some other way, but that is a bigger project than I was planning on!

Purchased May, 2017. Hangs crooked
I liked the first one I bought so well, I bought another; however, the new one hangs crooked and nothing we can do can make it hang straight. See photo below. The crookedness is accentuated by the identical lamp that hangs perfectly straight (not in photo).

Swag Lamp works but small design problem
The location of the on/off switch makes it difficult to reach when the "swag" is off to the side of the desk. You wouldn't want the "swag" to come straight down on you, and that's the only position where the switch is totally accessible, but one does get used to it. It looks nice, and works well.

Too large. Looks cheap. Returned it.

This is a nice pretty lamp I like it
This is a nice pretty lamp I like it. The only problem I have with it is that you can't put the chain right on the cord. I also wish it would have a metal hook of some sort to hang it with attached right to the lamp so I don't have to trust these plastic things.
