I looked for quite awhile to replace a traditional DR chandelier with 5 candle lights and small lamp shades, and finally decided on this 3-light alabaster stone chandelier because it was semi-flush and would work well with the other stone fixtures throughout the house. there was also a 5-light option, but it looked too big and too heavy. i was initially concerned with the workmanship of the chandelier; the exterior 'glaze' is rather sloppy in places, and the netting used to connect the stone pieces is very visible from the inside of the chandelier. But once it was installed, these things were not readily apparent and the overall effect was very nice. We had to adjust the light bulb holders by slightly pressing them down (they bend easily) so they weren't visible from across the room - but again, once that was done, the fixture is a definite improvement and 'update' over the fixture it replaced. The stone part is heavy, but the hardware holding it up is very light and clever in terms of installing and holding the weight. The bulbs are dimmable and the stone is translucent enough to be either dim or bright as needed, creating a warm and very nice effect.
We are building a house and I have yet to hang this, but it is very nice and large. It will fit the style of the house just perfect. After seeing, it we haven't decided whether to hang it in the entry way or the dining room.
I did like the color and style of the lamp however the instruction were not clear to follow, the wiring was not great, globe was very heavy to hang not what I expected. I will return and look for another lamp.
I had my eye on this chandelier for over a year now. I had been wanting to take the ceiling fan out of our dining room and replace with lighting that was easier to clean and
one that we could use a dimmer switch on. After going through lighting sections in stores and online I finally settled on this one as it fit all my criteria. Simple, elegant and easy to clean. The other reviews were extremely helpful and the price on Overstock was hard to beat which made my final choice an easy one. It came well packaged and installation was simple as our time consumer was taking the old one down. The globe part is quite heavy and just hooks to the three supporting rods. As per reviews the light is warm, soft and makes the room glow. So pleased with this purchase!
