Not what I expected. I purchased the light for a mudroom. The color is more like a black painted brass; more brass than black. Additionally, the light bulbs are taller than the glass which looks odd as well as the glass bowl hanging much lower than the light itself. It is almost like the chains holding up the bowl are too long? Should have purchased a similar light on Overstock. The light is installed and will not remove to return. Will learn to love it. Shipment was received well packed and within a reasonable time.
We ordered this light for our front entryway foyer. We have replaced almost all the light fixtures in our house over the last two years, and this was probably the easiest one yet. It look great, and definitely has a PB look. I would call the color Orb (oil rubbed bronze), not regular bronze. Overall we are very happy with it!
This is just the added style I needed for my breakfast nook. I purchased the 9lt Old World Chandelier and this is the perfect companion. I do have to agree with a previous reviewer, bugs do tend to collect in the bottom of the bowl. However, a Swiffer will take care of them very easily.
I had my eye on a similar item at PB for a while. I was hesitant to purchase given how much cheaper this one was compared to the one I saw in store. I'm glad I purchased because this is very comprable. The only thing you can't see from the picture is that the bronze does show through so it gives it more of a golden undertone. The picture I think looks more of of a matte black. All in all I highly recommend!
Beautiful! I bought these to replace those ugly "boob" flush mount lights that I hated. Perfect fit for a small foyer and landing at top of stairs. Looks just like a more expensive product from a popular home catalog. Electrician said it was good quality too. So happy I bought these.
Absolutely love this chandelier in my hallway. Gives just the right touch as a replacement for standard flush mounted lights. The only issue is that the glass and three chains give an optical illusion that makes the light appear to be off center at certain angles. Great for high ceilings. If you have regular height ceilings this light will hang too low. Happy with the purchase. Great price for what you get.
This fixture is not as pictured. The first and most glaring problem is that the bulbs themselves are well above the top of the bell jar -- not as depicted in the image at all. This pretty much ruins the look of the fixture. In addition, it hangs about 17" from the ceiling (not 15" as described) and the bell itself has a diameter of 12" plus a small amount for the protrusion of the hooks. What a bust. The general concept of the fixture is quite lovely but there are major problems in the execution of this one. There are a couple similar fixtures on Overstock, so I'll be returning this one and buying one of those.
I was very excited to receive this fixture and had been contemplating buying it for quite awhile. The light arrived on time and was packaged very well. All of the pieces/ parts were intact but the glass fixture had 3 defect bubbles in the globe which, had there been more or had been strategically placed, would've added a cool character to the light. The electrician had a very hard time installing the light (all of the tools need to be metric) and, once in place, the stem that hangs down from the ceiling was crooked. The electrician rigged it somehow with tape in order to force the stem to hang straight. The most disappointing thing about the fixture is that the light bulbs are ABOVE the rim of the glass globe. It looks as if the wrong globe has been paired with the fixture. Very disappointing.
I saw similar lights on several other websites, but went with this one because it was a much better price. We bought it for our foyer and it looks great! We get a lot of compliments and I think it looks just like the other ones that are more expensive. The others might be made better, but you can't tell once it is on the ceiling. My only complaint is that the piece that comes down from the ceiling that holds the light bulbs, was crooked. We were able to adjust it, but I am afraid I will have to adjust it and play with it every time I clean it to get it straight again. Overall though, I am very satisfied and think it is a very nice light fixture.
You don't realize until it is installed that the lightbulbs sit higher than the glass bell which looks like a mistake. It's not a huge deal but it could be a really great light fixture without that flaw. As it is, it's a light that looks like a cheap-ish knock off of the ******* **** version. I notice that another review stated the same thing about the bulb height -- wish I would have read that before purchasing. Installation was very easy and the light is the perfect size for my entry so I will keep it. I would not have purchased it if I had seen it in person but it's not worth taking down, packing back up and shipping back.
I read all the reviews before deciding to buy this as a lower cost option then what the *** version I really wanted. I had high expectations based on what everyone was saying about this. Wow, no, no, no....are you people serious? All I can think is that they other people are not true *** buyers and therefore don't have the expectations on quality?? First of all this is more brass to me then black or brown, read the color and don't go by the picture. Yes it has brown swirled in it but brass is not what I wanted even a touch of in my *** look a like expectations. The quality is lower then what I could've bought at H*** for*** and I paid ***! I order 3 look a like *** items, only received this one so far. I've already loaded it back in the box to be sent back tomorrow and ordered the *** lights for twice as much. This did nothing more then make me realize spending more is worth the expense to have what you want. Sorry, to anyone who is buying this who truly loves *** products, buy the *** version...save the hassle or returning that I now have to do.
This light is exactly what we expected. I had searched around at other sites and the best price by far was at Overstock! I got a Pottery Barn look and saved so much money. Since our ceiling height is so low in our dining room, this is the perfect mix of style and function. No one will be hitting their head! We couldn't be happier with our choice!
