This light is exactly how it looks in the picture. I got it and was putting it together and a ball joint that connects the pole to where the light hooks in the ceiling fell apart. It took a pair of pliers and a lot of muscle to get it back together. The pliers rubbed some of the finish off, but since it is so high on the ceiling it is hard to see so I didn't care as much. It was unfortunate that it fell apart so easily and it makes me nervous that one of these days it will happen and come crashing to the ground. But until that day comes I am satisfied with the product.
These mini pendants totally exceeded my expectations and they look even better in person. I can't wait to install them in our new home along with the matching larger pendant for over our table. I would totally recommend these to anyone that's looking for a more contemporary look.
Bought 2 of these for kitchen bar/counter area. We installed it with a dimmable switch. They look & work great. I especially liked the extra poles available for all kind of lengths. I have 9 ft ceilings so only needed a few of the poles. Several leftover, so would fit high or loft ceiling installation as well.
I bought two of these pendant lights to place over my breakfast nook and they look fabulous. They were easy to install. Be sure to decide which way you want the top of the light to be positioned on the ceiling. Also, some of the new light bases did not fit into the light socket.
