I had purchased a chandelier similar to this one. but more expensive and larger, about 4 years ago which I was very happy with and still own today. This chandelier however appeared to be a return from someone else, was very poorly constructed, very poorly packaged, and missing critical parts for hanging. I returned it, though I had to pay return shipping even though it was received in what appeared to be previously used condition. No questions were asked about returning it for full credit which did come through in a rather timely way.
Moving into a much older house needing upgrades. Had a budget, so I went a little cheaper on the bathroom fixture and got this for my dining room. Worth every penny!! Absolutely beautiful. and really makes the whole room come together. It even made my old table look better(light cream color) Really softens the light though, so if you like your dining area Bright, might not be for you.
Notice closely the hooks that the shade hangs on. I did not notice it in the display. We live in earthquake country 2 miles from the San Andres fault and we are concerned if this could hold up. Concerns to me hooks at the top and at the base of the lamp which you can not see in the photo at the website are seen from across the room. You can see the top of the light bulbs (skinny as I could purchase) over the top of the shade. Installation was rinkedinky and It took 2.5 hours to install cause these/plates did not match. It was to much of a hassle to return I we will live with it. It is growing on me despite the downside. Basically I would give it a "D" however we are keeping the lamp and will try to overlook its diffiss\ onion
We are putting the finishing touches on a southwestern styled room and based on the photos, thought that a pair of these lamps would work well in our 500 sq. foot area. We chose the three bulb lamps because we were concerned with light overkill. Both lamps arrived in excellent shape and right out of the box they looked terrific. Once hung on the ceiling my wife was amazed at my excellent taste. They not only add to the look and feel of the room, but the warm light even with soft white LED bulbs (which run cooler in color than incandescent bulbs) look fantastic. One other reviewer was questioning if these lamps are in fact made of stone and not resin. We have some other alabaster lights and bowls and I feel confident that alabaster was used. These are a little on the heavy side, so I chose to mount the plate directly to the wood ceiling instead of hanging it off the electrical box. Also the hanging struts and light hardware are more of a dark bronze color with a little bit of copper tones instead of the bright copper in the picture. For our space this was preferred.
The lamp turned out to be as pretty as we expected and even better for its value. It looks great in our small dining room. Its made out of a material that feels like stone. The one difference from the picture is that the bluish-gray outline isn't that vibrant. We're still very happy with the product and it was easy to install.
This light fixture is a good item for the price. It looks lovely over my copper kitchen table. I would have given it an excellent if the globe had been made of glass rather than plastic. It is not terribly detectible by visitors or family who haven't touched it but I know that it is plastic .
Was impressed with the fixture! Took my husband half the day to put in although we were rehanging in a spot where we had a fan/light previously! It really is a statement and hadn't seen anything like it in the stores! Thought it maybe too much but it really blends in with the surroundings, lovely golden tone when lit up!
This light is nice but wouldn't rave about it like others have. It does provide great light but there is little no no "alabaster" as depicted in picture. My husband cursed the hardware and said it was the cheapest crap made and if it were not for light already there we would have been outa luck hanging it without hardware we had. Packaged well, secure and got it quickly.
My father redecorated his kitchen, but couldn't find a light he liked to go over the kitchen table. I sent him a number of options, but this is the one he chose. He LOVES it! It looks fantastic over his kitchen table and extends the elegance of his new kitchen into his dining nook. He really couldn't be happier with it. One caveat: it's not a particularly bright light, so if you're looking for a lot of light, this is not the chandelier for you.
this light has been haning in my living room for a while and I still love it. It gives off a color light. the only thing that could improve it it the finish. It is a formed plasic type shade which has a gloss finish; I think it would look richer is it had a matte finish.
I've been looking for years to find the right lamps to fit my dining room. I needed two since I have a large table in a long space but the ceiling is not high. Most chandelier and pendant lights hang way too low or are too bulky. After reading the great reviews on the quality of the product I decided to buy them. I am so glad I did. The quality and look of the pieces are excellent for the price. I'd seen lamps I had liked much less for way more money at lamp stores. The weight is impressive and the glow through the amber glass sheds more than enough light and yet casts a warm amber glow. I love just looking at them. Would buy again in a heartbeat.
I ordered this piece to replace a stained glass hanging lamp in my kitchen which didn't provide much light. Fairly easy to install because the hardware is fairly light so easy to hold onto while you hardware to the ceiling -- then such a cinch to hang the 3 connector pieces to the ceiling cap -- then hook to the shade -- give off a very warm light -- the pieces of alabaster in the shade I received are much smaller than as shown in the photo which makes it a MUCH nicer piece in my opinion -- has a nice weight to the shade too!
Looks very nice in our foyer. I love how the light sheds patterns at night.
