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.
I read all the reviews and was a little hesitant to buy this fixture, however I have the matching pendant lamp hanging in my stairwell and wanted the corresponding flushmount on the landing on the top of the stairs. The issue with the bulbs being higher than the bowl simply doesn't matter because of the way it's situated. The view is mostly from downstairs looking up. Even when coming out of the the bedrooms and looking up before walking downstairs, the area is fairly small so that your view is still looking upward from underneath. So, to conclude, it all depends on the area in which the fixture is to be mounted. If your perspective is such that you will looking from across the room a ways, than you will definitely be able to notice he high bulbs. But in my case, I couldn't be happier with this purchase!
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.
Attractive design but the quality was very poor: cheap, thin metal, the canopy so small that it barely covered the ceiling outlet, and in the end, after much difficulty installing it, the hurricane glass was TOO SMALL for the fixture and ended up shattering when we tried to hook up the chains. HOWEVER, Overstock was great about reinbursing us for this disaster!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? ok
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. extremely poor quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? partly
I bought this light for my entry. It looks a lot like a Pottery Barn one but for a much better price. It was easy to install. It was packaged very well and arrived quickly. I would definitely recommend this light fixture to anyone looking for a classy but affordable fixture!
We needed a new foyer light and I liked the look online. It takes a bit of arm strength to get it hung correctly. The glass is okay - almost feels like a plastic glass...thought it would be a bit more elegant looking but it will work for now. Overall, pleased, but factors like installation and quality of product gives it 3 stars.
Shipping was quick and for 1/2 the price you get a very similar light fixture to a Pottery Barn model. Installation and assembly was easy. Hung it in our entry area/center hall and the lowest height of the fixture is 6'9" with a standard 8' ceiling.
