Just had this fixture installed in breakfast area of our kitchen. Looks fabulous; coordinates with the contemporary look in the rest of the room. Brushed steel finish is as shown on the web site. I've been looking at all price range fixtures, and for the money this is an excellent buy. Be aware that I had a handyman install it, and it took some time to work out getting the 3 hanging lines level. Other than that, it was an easy install, and most important of all....looks great!

Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase, now that it's installed. I'd give it an excellent but for a couple issues with my specific fixture. What I would have loved to have been included in the description: 1. The fixture itself is an aluminum color with a matte finish and texture like powdercoated sandpaper, attractive and helps it "disappear and float". The photo shows some reflections that make it look shinier than it is. 2. There are six frosted glass lenses on the bottom of the ring. 3. The ring is 1 3/4" deep and with the frosted glass lenses on bottom and the corresponding clear glass protective pieces on top of each bulb (which are visible above the ring, although not pictured in the photo), the ring is just under 2 1/2" deep. 4. The power line, which looks black in the photo, is actually a silvery/ color and are semi-transparent. 5. The cables are easily adjustable to different lengths by depressing the little steel nipples on the ceiliing plate. You can cut them with wire cutters. The power cables are not black/white/green to distinguish them. They are marked with tags. If cutting them, you must take care to mark which is which so you can connect them accurately. My fixture had two loose frosted lenses and it took me some time to unscrew some parts to re-attach them. One was loose because a screw was installed without it's washer at the factory. Overall, though, I am very happy with the fixture. I appreciated that the halogen bulbs were included. Don't touch them with your hands. Use a cloth or cotton gloves.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate. although the fixture has a texture sort of like fine sandpaper that makes it matte, not shiny or satin-like. Attractive but not what I expected from the photo.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is a nice quality fixture.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate, and could have included more information.
We're re-doing our kitchen and purchased this large light and the smaller one from the same line. The big one went over the island and the smaller one over the kitchen table (which looked lost there!) We then purchased THIS one as a second "larger" light for over the table and put the smaller (3 bulb version) in the pantry area and the three LOOK GREAT! Can't go wrong at these prices with the identical items at the lighting store costing MORE THAN FOUR TIMES as much as here at Overstock!
