Hanging these crystal pieces does not require a pro at all! My husband installed the fixture and I placed each crystal. It took about two hours. Our living room style is traditional with eclectic mixed in for added personality. The chandelier is sturdy and looks luxurious in our newly renovated English Tudor home.
A really nice contemporary chandelier at an exceptional price. A few glass drops did arrive broken, but it didn't matter, since there are a few extras included with the shipment; that being said, I didn't realize that initially, so I contacted Overstock and asked for replacement drops to be shipped to me. Their response was quick, although it did take about two weeks for the items to arrive from the actual manufacturer located in China. As far as installation, I am a beginner with DIY projects, and although the directions are lacking in detail, I was still able to accomplish this on my own in about 3-4 hours. I did hang the light fixture before adding any of the glass drops, however, since the piece becomes much heavier once those are added.
I saw a similar fixture online and fell in love with it but it was listed there for $**** which was out of my price range. I found this light on Overstock and I'm very pleased with it! We have a small formal dining room that is perfectly square with a round table. Our home is 1930's Colonial but our taste in decorating is more contemporary. This chandelier was perfect for being a little more formal without seeming traditional and stuffy. We had a few broken crystals but there were extras in the pack which was a good thing! It did take awhile to hang all of the crystals. I absolutely love this fixture!
if you're not in a rush to get it up, I think it'll be worth the wait and effort. I hung all the crystals to be sure I had them all and understood how they went on. Well, it's too heavy. Gonna take them all off and hang first...once I get the missing piece (The ceiling bracket). That was missing somehow. Nothing broken in the box. Beautiful drops of glass. Not plastic. I think it will be great once it's up. I'm just a bit scared of hanging it since it is so heavy.
I chose this chandelier because I love crystals. This is one that even the boys in the house, including hubby, likes. The stark metal rims and rods offset the glass drops nicely so it is dressy, but not fussy or too girly. Took a long time to put together- had to hang each drop.
I love this chandelier and it really does make me smile every time I look at it. It's playful yet sophisticated. The crystals are like highly-viscous rain drops and the shadows they create are wonderful. The price is excellent and it adds personality to our foyer.
The product was very pretty however it was 16" vs 18" as stated in the specifications. It could be that it was sent the wrong item as there were 2 of the same look but different prices and sizes. Item arrived with few broken glass balls which I believe due to shipping process and poor packaging. Overstock agent was very nice and pleasant offered to send a replacement right away. I returned because it was too small for the area. Other than that I would recommend it.
