I looked at many chandeliers on this website, and I purchased this one because it did not say it took candelabra bulbs and I was looking for a light that would really light up the room. I thought that I would be able to put regular bulbs into this fixture and that is why I purchased it. It looks nice in the room, but now that I am only realizing I need candelabra bulbs after someone already hung it for me, I guess I am stuck with it - would have liked more light!
That being said, my only hesitation when buying it was the wire in the middle, and that proved to be no problem because there is a plastic tie which you can use to make it look straightened out down the center by tying it to the metal bar under the center bulb.
I love the chandelier in my breakfast nook. It hangs over a sleek glass table and looks very modern. The only two issues I have with the light (both of which are mitigated by the excellent price) are:
1. The lamp shade looks white during the day (in sunlight), but looks quite yellow at night when the light is turned on. I am using LEDs in the light, so it is not the bulb. The shade has slightly sloppy assembly, but most guests will probably not notice.
2. Be careful purchasing this chandelier if you have high ceilings. It can only be extended so far and then you are out of wire. It hangs a bit too high in our kitchen, but I am ignoring that fact because I like the chandelier very much.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The shade looks white during the day and when the light is not turned on, but looks quite yellow at night.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The lamp shade could be glued a bit better, but is adequate considering the price
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
This light is over my very modern dining set and brings a little sparkle to the whole room without being grandmas chandelier. You could change the hanging glass droplets to crystals, too.
excellent update, very reasonable

This fixture arrived with wires pre-installed. Otherwise, this would require two experts to be able to set the wires so the fixture would rest level. So the good news is that this fixture is easily installed by homeowners. However, measure your space to be sure you'll be happy with the height of the fixture. I have 9" ceilings, so this fixture is a bit high over the dining room table. However, we want a large light spill (the area bathed in light) so we can read and use iPad at the table so this works for us. If only a dining room, I'd want to hang this several inches lower.
Great fixture for the price. The other reviews made me slightly worried about installation, but my husband and I found it fairly easy. This hangs over our dining room table and looks fabulous--great blend of modern and traditional!
Not thrilled with this purchase, but it's already installed, so... I guess I'm stuck. Overall, I feel like it was my fault for not reading up on this item carefully enough before purchasing. It isn't as big as I thought it looked in the picture. The shade seems like it should be bigger (vertically). Plus, it doesn't quite seem to hang low enough over the DR table, but we have 9' ceilings. If you have 8', it would be better. 10', and you'd have yourself a semi-flush. The fabric on the shade isn't great quality, and I expected it would be "white," but, it is definitely off-white. In the right house, it would be great, but in mine, it just doesn't quite fit. Shoot.
I love the shape. It really fits my home nicely. Metal is a little cheap looking but overall a nice light fixture for the price. Not too difficult to install but 2 people are necessary. Also making sure all cords are level is time consuming. Shade looks white without the lights on but then has a cream/beige tint with lights on. If you need stark white don't get this.
This is an excellent chandelier, it is really cheap compared with the others in the illumination stores. It gives a perfect modern touch to any room, mine was installed in my dinning room and it looks gorgeous.
I love the way this light looks in our dining room. We have gotten lots of compliments on it. Only minor complaint is that the shade was a little dirty when it arrived but nothing major and only I can tell since I assembled it.
Overall very very happy with this purchase.
When the description says total height can reach 42" does that mean just for the wires or the wires plus the shade/crystals?jmneiman83 on Feb 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi jmneiman83, this would be the wires plus the shade and crystals. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 5, 2014
Does anyone have a picture of the underside of this fixture? I'm curious if the crystals could be mounted a little higher on the inside so just the bottoms would hang below the shade.lavaha on Aug 31, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello lavaha, we appreciate your inquiry. Our support team confirms that the the crystals could not be mounted a litter higher on the inside, since the hole position on the light frame cannot be moved, which will be attached to the lamp shade. We hope you have found this information helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have great day!

It is definitely and completely cream! Not white a bit. I had purchased a similar to put in the same room which 'read' white and looked awesome it was white! I still like the light but they DO NOT MATCH because this light was no where near white. Flat out beige!michelleandsnickers on Jul 7, 2013

Is there a light diffuser across the the bottom or can you see directly up into the middle of the fixture?retromadre on May 20, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This item does not have a bottom diffuser, so you can see directly into the fixture. overstockcustomercare1 on May 23, 2012
I have had my eye on this fixture for quite some time. I need to know if you think this light will ever come back into stock, if so when? Would it be possible to go straight to the manufacturer? I am kind of in a time crunch.
I would appreciate any insight, thanks so much! on Mar 27, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
