The light that arrived was actually MUCH prettier than the one shown on the web site, but not just because it is a bad picture, the fixture just insn't what is described/pictured. If you want a true straight drum, do not order this, you won't be getting what is in the picture! Here are the differences: 1) The shade is not a true perpendicular drum as pictured: the sides have some slope; 2) The finial that secures the diffuser is a little crystal knob, not just the silver fob as pictured; 3) finally, the size is different: the drum is only 16 inches across (not 18 as specified on the web site) and 8.5 tall.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is a fairly good match

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Describes the picture, but NOT the fixture that arrived
I wanted this style to replace a more personal chandelier in our rental and wanted it to be something I personally would like in my home. This fits the criteria. It is exactly as shown in the picture. When installed I thought it would work on a dimmer but it doesn't.

Can you recommend a fixture similar to this one but with the option to lengthen the distance from the ceiling. I prefer a rod to a chain. I like the satin glass shade but would consider fabric. A wider shade would be okay. Some crystal bulb accent on the chain etc okay but not a bunch of it. Thanks!Marcia on Mar 18, 2015Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello Marcia. We recommend SKU # 12456113 to you, it did come with the wider ivory shade, and some crystal bulbs accent on the chain. I have also attached the online link of this SKU below, which we hope you will like it. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Hello tansfixaaa1, this chandelier requires three 60-watt standard bulbs. You could use compact florescent as long as they are the correct wattage. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 18, 2014
Is the shade width 16" or 18"? The product description says 16", but an answer to a question below says 18".
Also, would it be possible to replace the finial that comes with the light with another finial?
Thank you!keeffe68 on Jul 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi keeffe68, have received updated information from our support team. The shade width is 16 inches and not 18 inches. We will have the previous answer corrected for continuity. We also verified it is possible to replace the finial that comes with the light with another one, please just ensure it can be suitable for the bottom nipple. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 22, 2014
does this light use those cables that people have trouble with in the other similar fixtures? (such as the altea that is the same price)?tjudson on May 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us tjudson. There is a rod from the ceiling plate to the shade. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on May 21, 2014
Yes, the shade around the light is used as a diffuser. This lighting features a satin nickel finish with a base made of iron.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 11, 2012
"The shade acts as a diffuser" is a ridiculous answer. A diffuser is a round piece of plastic or glass that covers the bottom of the fixture so that you are not looking up at the bulb (and of course to diffuse the light). It appears this fixture does not have one. You are giving incorrect information b/c it seems you do not know what a diffuser is.sweaterweather on Feb 13, 2013
We apologize for the confusion. We are working to correct this by better educating our agents to provide the most accurate responses possible. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. As to the question at hand the unit does include a diffuser and it is made of acrylic. If you have any further questions we will do everything we can to provide quick and efficient answers to your questions. Thank you for your patience.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 21, 2013
Yes, the diffuser is a soft white, lets plenty of light through without having to see the bulbs.sdorey on Aug 22, 2013
I am guessing that the light will only hang 22 inches from the ceiling--is that correct? Or can it be altered like some of the other pendant lights listed here.hmsb121 on Oct 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I like the look of this fixture from the picture and description, however, I read the one review and it says they received a light that did not have straight drum shade sides and had a crystal finial instead of metal. Also, is the diffuser made of glass? What can I expect?floridagirl9 on May 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This is made out of metal, fabric, and glass. The base is glass, the final is metal. The shade would be straight.overstockcustomercare1 on May 17, 2012
