At A Glance: The eye-catching Solis Lamp is unique, both in its slit fabric body and in the way its light reflects off the floor, walls, and ceiling in a radiating pattern that mimics the Sun's rays. You'll definitely want to put this lamp somewhat apart from other pieces so the light pattern can be seen on surfaces around it. With a polyester fabric shade and steel structure, Solis is built to last.
What's To Like: Solis has been designed thoughtfully, with a nice marriage of dark cloth and bright rays of light. The light pattern it creates provides a delicate, weightless ambiance.
What's Not To Like: We're not going to lie - the price isn't low. You'll pay for that delicate ambiance. However, this pendant lamp may be well worth it.
The Bottom Line: The Solis Pendant Lamp is a modern light with some serious character. The ambient light it provides brings warmth and artfulness to your space.

About The Manufacturer
Pablo was founded in 1993 by Venezuelan born industrial designer Pablo Pardo. Located in San Francisco, Pablo is renowned for their lighting designs which have proven both innovative in terms of functionality and refined in their aesthetics and simplicity. With a marketplace seemingly flooded with cheap models and copycat designs of every variety, Pablo Lighting manages to bring something new into the world that offers user-friendly features and an original style.
We bought three of these lights to hang in a two-story dining room. There was a big empty space above the dining table, with a stairway and landing along one side. We used different sizes and colors, and we hung the lights at different heights. In this arrangement, the lights fill up the space beautifully and look good both from below and from the stairs. They have a high quality appearance from all angles.
Now for some lighting geekery: The fixtures come with halogen PAR-30 narrow-flood bulbs. Before installation, we replaced these with LED PAR-30s, both to save energy and to reduce the need to change hard-to-reach bulbs. The PAR-30s cast a direct, fairly narrow beam. Some people would find this light too harsh, and we are glad to have the lights on a dimmer. The illumination is focused on the dining table, leaving the rest of the room dimly lit. We thought that the shades might cast distict striped shadows on the walls, but this effect is very subtle in our room. For softer, less dramatic illumination, you might prefer BR30 bulbs (the kind used in recessed ceiling lights).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
