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

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.

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

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
