This is the second time we have purchased this chandelier as we just moved and missed the special charm it brings to our foyer. The hue from the shade is warm and inviting to guests. It is easy to assemble and install. We highly recommend this chandelier and would purchase it again.
The light is beautiful, looks expensive. Husband installed with just a little problem adjusting the light to hang even. My ceiling is 10ft, so my bulbs do not show over the edge of the shade. You won't be disappointed with this purchase. Delivery was quick and for the clearance price plus a bonus coupon it was a no brainer.
The alabaster bowl shade is nice on the outside but the finish is rough inside the bowl. All the hardware are painted to look like antique copper but they are not. The paint comes off very easily. If you buy it I recommend you find a matching paint and do a better job. Automotive paint will work best and make it look really sharp. I bought the light and converted it into a chandelier hanging from a 16 foot ceiling.
This chandelier is easy to install and looks beautiful. You can put whatever watt bulbs you choose and it will illuminate beautifully. I put this in my kitchen to replace the ugly fluorescent lights the previous owners had in there. I am so happy with this light.
Beautiful light; great for 8' ceiling height. A 4-star due to light bulbs do show above the bowl as other reviewers have mentioned. We drilled the hangers, cut off the loops, and inserted a nail thru the new hole and hung the light on the hooks in the bowl to shorten the length so bulbs would not show. Used led bulbs to reduce bulb heat since bulb is nearer the bowl with the modification. Great light. Also fasteners to attach the cover over the junction box that holds the light too long and unable to adjust; once we got the correct length, worked like a charm. The metal parts are a copper/bronze color. It's a statement piece in the foyer with standard ceiling height. Remove of bowl is a breeze when cleaning is necessary. I might have considered the larger model of this same light just to show off a little more.
This chandelier is more beautiful in person than on the website. It arrived on time and was in perfect condition. The size is perfect for my small dining area. All the parts were there. The only problem is that the screws that attached it to the ceiling plate were so long that the caps to cover them were not deep enough to conceal the screw. The electrician managed to fix with shorter screws that he went to pick up. So ran the price of installation up. You might want to check this out before you start if you are hiring someone to hang it. Otherwise I love it!!!
I have this in a squareish hallway area and it literally throws a warm golden glow over the whole area. The item is heavy. Be sure you have a good solid area to hang it. This also is big. I know, I know the dimensions are right there in the description, but you know how it is... Considering two more for my bedroom entry way. Worth every penny.
The way this inverted dome pendant (more so than a chandelier) uses genuine alabaster is quite clever and casts a wonderfully warm glow. The color of the intermediate/border pieces is grey-blue - identical to how it's depicted in the images. The only shortcoming is that the bronze metal is a bit too brown-orange for me. A quick coat of matte black spray paint really made this go from good to great. Installation was straight forward. If you are initially attracted to the stone element of this fixture, you will be very happy with this purchase.
