Who Is Parrot Uncle?
Parrot Uncle is a specialty retailer for all your home lighting requirements. From living rooms to bedrooms, floor lamps to chandeliers, bathrooms to hallways, mirror lighting to wall sconces, they offer good quality and a large selection of home lighting fixtures, all at affordable prices.
They have a great assortment of affordable home light fixtures for every type of decor.
We were provided with the Retro Industrial Style White Pot Cover Shape Pendant Light from Parrot Uncle. They were initially on backorder, so they took a little bit longer to come in than expected. I will say that the lights came packaged adequately with enough protection to withstand shipment from China and arrived without any scratches or markings.
One thing to note, which is not described on the website is that the light bulbs shown in the photos do not come with the light fixtures (at least not the ones we received). This really isn’t a big deal, but I want to make sure to point this out.
Luckily, I am a fairly handy guy because the lights that arrived did not come with any installation instructions. I informed my contact at Parrot Uncle and they said it was an oversight on their part, but insured me that they typically come with all instructions to install the lights.
The lights we wanted to replace were builder grade hall lights that were around 11 years old and honestly, pretty ugly. We called them the “mushroom lights”.
The pre-installation and set up were pretty straight forward even without any instructions. Configuring the light surround with the socket went together quickly and without any issue.
The final installation looks absolutely fantastic with our “retro” style in the house. I was initially a bit uncertain if the light would be too dim, but I fitted the lights with 40w cfl’s and am extremely impressed by how well they light up our hallway. The light reflects off the white interior of the light housing and look fantastic.
