My Ventura Chandelier is really pretty and looks expensive, espcially when you can control the light by a dimmer switch. HOWEVER, the glass diffuser on the bottom of the fixture is a little short. The diffuser has pre-drilled holes that the rods hook into. On one end of the fixture it is about 1" from the shade and on the other 1/8" off. It is only noticeable when you are sitting at the table with the lights on. the person who sits at that end can see into the fixture. It is a good looking piece for $***, but if you want a perfect fixture, this might not be the one for you!
One more hint.....that Overstock does not show you. This fixture has a rectangular plate at the top where the rods attach. I thought it was frustrating that in no photos they show this.
This is such a great light for the price, I have been looking at similar lights on other sites and comparable lights are going for ~$500. Really is much more beautiful than I ever imagnined, looks great over our island in the kitchen. Also, not mentioned but the bottom of the light comes with a frosted glass diffuser to help soften the light. Hmmm I suddenly feel inspired to replace all the lights in our house because this one puts them to shame
The only reason why I am not giving this a 5 star is because of the height of the chandelier. It is much taller than I expected but I should have measured the height from my ceiling before I purchased. The chandelier is similar to the one I have been eyeing from Renovation Hardware at a fraction of the cost. I would definitely recommend purchasing this for the dining room for a very contemporary look.

I had been eyeing similar and far more expensive modern chandaliers for months, and decided to give this a try based on the positive reviews. I was not disappointed, and this is a lovely focal point over our oversized, dining room table. I get a lot of compliments on this chandalier and highly recommend this product.

This was a great chandelier, and I knew it was very long but thought it would look good over our dining room table. I needed to have a lamp which would attach in two places. This light had one central ceiling attachment which wouyld not work with my existing situation. I hated to send it back, but could not make it work. Returning the item was easy.

Looks great and was easy to install. I get so many compliments on my new light fixture. I saw the same fixture at a local store and it costs double the price of this one so, I feel like I got a great deal
This light was the exact look I was going for, clean, sleek, modern...the table it hangs over is contemporary and is a somewhat massive piece and I needed a substantial piece and a crystal one would have taken away from it. The room now looks like something from a magazine. The quality of the light is good and I'm sure could be made a little better, but for the price, You can't beat it, and truly, who is going to look up and notice any little flaws.....love it!
This fixture looks modern and would've been even better in a brushed nickel. Unfortunately, there is just BARELY enough linen to cover the shade/metal structure, the notches in the fabric (to allow for easing around corners) is so skimpy, the black frame is exposed. When lit, it is obvious that the linen edges are folded behind and aren't cut straight/nor finished. It was a very affordable update to the HORRIBLE light fixture over the kitchen table which was in our house when purchased. This light will be fine until we remodel the kitchen in a couple of years, and invest in higher end fixtures.

First person to see it said they want one too. High style too, I put this in my Scandanavian / Teak dining room, and it looks great. If you want formal, and yet the softness of the fabric shade, its a great mix.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate description, goes well with my other pieces
The only thing I would put in the description is that this light is height adjustable, by removing one of the rods. I needed 36" from the ceiling instead of 48". It looks fantastic!!! I have a very long dining table, and it was the perfect answer. I'm so glad I found this, and the price was great!! Highly recommend!!

What is the highest (close to the ceiling for finished ceiling to bottom) hanging you can accomplish with this chandelier. I need it as close to the ceiling as possible as I am using it in an open space, not over a table.jjmmww on Apr 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello jjmmww The assembly instructions show that the minimum would be the use of the six inch rods only. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 29, 2013
Can more rods be obtained from manufacturer (on my own)?
I need a 6' drop.
Also, question below asked how many electrical junction boxes are needed...I'm thinking one centered. Is that right?
Thanks!twoshihtzus on Aug 15, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Yes, it needs one centered box. Unfortunately, additional rods are not available for purchase. Thank you for your interest.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 16, 2012
Unfortunately, we would not be able to get the additional rods. You would have to buy them at a hardware store like Home Depot.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 17, 2012
