I bought this for my formal dining room table. I was impressed with the quality for the price. I did not use all of the crystals because it seemed a little " too" much and wish I would have bought the one with the more clear shade, because with the light on the white shade has a yellow color to it. But I still love it!
While this lighting fixture is very striking and beautiful, I believe the drum shade fits too tightly. It is 17 inches in diameter, however it should be 20 inches and would look better balanced. I am thinking of ordering a custom made shade that will be 20 inches in diameter for this chandelier. But this would be a personal preference.
I was excited when I ordered this lamp - it was just what I was looking for - I loved the white shade. It arrived with a silver see-thru shade! After speaking with customer service, I was finally told that it was an error in description - there are NO white shades - - disappointed that it is still listed! Be careful if you are wanting the white shade!!
This light is lovely, easy to put together and install, BUT the shade is not white when the light is on. It's a yellow leaning to dark tan with lights on, even with the CFL lightbulbs it doesn't make much difference. I'm going to buy a separate shade and switch them out, it bothers me that much. Other than that, during the day it's very pretty. If the color of the shade doesn't bother you or if that's what you're looking for, it's a good purchase.
the reason i give 3 stars is because the drum was a bit bent on one side. i think the packaging could have used a bigger box with a bigger foam, this would have helped the drum to have more room and not me squeezed. But it is beautiful and since i used in the hallway, i turned the side to the side of the wall, this way no one will see it. EASY to assemble too!!
I love this chandelier! It looks beautiful in my dining room. I, like another reviewer, did not use all of the crystal strands (it was a bit much for my taste). That is one nice thing about the chandelier - you can use as many or as little gems as you wish. The shade does appear sort of yellow/off white when lit. I gave it four stars due to the color of the shade when lit and the fact that my shade didn't sit quite right (it looks a little slanted -bent slightly somewhere).
I wanted to update my kitchen by making changes to it that wouldn't cost me a lot of money. I changed the wall color, took down curtains, and wanted to change the lighting fixture. After doing a lot of searching I chose this specific lamp from Overstock. It was everything I was looking for but I was hesitant because I've never ordered online from a picture. I read all the reviews from the previous buyers and decided to take a chance. All the reviews were correct! The lamp arrived partially assembled. I just had to put the crystals together which took no time at all. I used the picture online to figure out where to hang them on the lamp because the drawing that came with it wasn't explicit enough. My husband knows electricity and hung the lamp with no problem however, if you don't know electricity, get someone who does because the directions were not explicit enough there either. We love the look of the chandelier. The color is off white and not as white as in the picture but we love it! It is nicely made and looks like I spent more than I did. I would recommend it to anyone.
