Review of Plumen pendant set

We have been changing the lighting in our communal rooms from the tacky Ikea halogens (which bulbs seemed to go¬†continuously) to light fittings that take standard bulbs (read: energy efficiency drive). We could have gone with your standard pendant set from b&q such as this¬†but instead opted for a fashionable Plumen pendant set. I was not impressed I’m afraid as can be seen in this video:

Worth knowing:

  • No instructions included
  • No inside to the ceiling rose so a very unsatisfactory quality of fitting – you will either have a gap between rose and ceiling or be in fear of it falling down with your valuable glass lamp shade
  • The wire is far from the fabric wire as advertised – it’s a black plastic wire with faux fish net covering.
  • Instead make your own set for peanuts out of black wire, a black lamp holder and painted black ceiling rose, or look around for something higher quality like this remade 1940’s bakerlite set
