Murray Feiss Lighting Semi Flush Mounts Fixtures Review

Updated on January 13, 2015


Murray Feiss semi-flushmounts present a transitional lighting solution: not as tightly enclosed as flushmounts, they possess several chandelier uplight characteristics ā€“ but the short stem discloses their true affiliation. Resting aesthetically between these two types of fixtures, semi-flushmount address a range of lighting needs: they can illuminate smaller rooms from central ceiling locations, but also serve as simple dinette.

The open space between the glass shade and the ceiling becomes a target for company designers. In antique inspired lights it's filled with strained chains, while in later period items arches, ā€œSā€ shaped lines and filigree metal scroll-work arise above the dome. In some of the models a nearly symmetrical frame mirror the glass, creating a semblance of a sphere.

Alloys, materials and finishes employed in the semi-flushmounts include aged tortoise shell, oil rubbed, mocha, dark, Corinthian and Peruvian bronze, silver dust, Firenze gold, and aged and patina brass, complemented by clear optic, mercury, scavo and other sorts of glass.

  • Edwardian collection features medieval regal design and filigree scrolls; the ring surrounding the glass cap resembles the base hoop of an ancient crown. Contains up to three lights.

  • Coventry and Sterling Castle semi flushmounts remain on England territory, but move ahead in time, displaying more sophistication ā€“ softer lines, baroque and pre-baroque ornamentation. Murray Feiss declare the latter a medieval model intended for exterior lighting.

  • Sonoma Valley and Somerset relieve the tension some of the more loaded designs create, opting for thin metallic patterns that nevertheless perform the function of linking the glass shade to the stem and the ceiling.

  • Barrington, Morningside, Boulevard continue the trend of functional and unpretentious yet expressive fixtures. A rather basic stem, sometimes flanked by a few supporting arches connects to a large, bowl-like glass shade. Classic collections.

  • Bernoulli line departs from the classic aesthetic of most ceiling lights, and displays a clear industrial, modern office building design. Both appearance and Energy Star standard efficient.
