I am pleased with the purchase of this chandelier for our 12X14 dining room. The dimensions of the fixture are actually 23 wide (from globe edge to globe edge) and 17 high (not including the chain). What I like best is that it meets all of my criteria: Fits with our dark furniture and attractive; a bright light for doing work at the table but also on a dimmer switch for atmosphere and energy savings; a modern look to update the room (replacing a brass and glass 80s chandelier). The light looks very graceful. The globes are white with marbling, and even with only four 60-watt bulbs, it provides good light. With the fixture hanging 31 inches above our table, regular light bulbs are visible, so we had to buy ceiling fan light bulbs which are shorter. The fixture is much lighter in weight than I imagined, maybe 12 lbs. I took someones advice from the reviews to hang the fixture so that all four globes are visible from the doorway. The chandelier was shipped mostly assembled and was extremely well packaged. Although a corner of the box was damaged, none of the parts inside were. The handyman had no problems whatsoever with installation. We wanted to recenter the light, so we swagged it using a bronze hook; in addition, that used all of the ample chain length.
This was a snap to install, and having the end clips on the chain was brilliant. Rather than having to bend and break the loops in the cahin, this came with end clips that open and close faciliatiing really easy chain length adjustment. It hangs perfectly straight, and there was plenty of extra wire. The unit was packaged very, very well, and I'd do it all over again if I needed to.

I am a big review reader and love to hear what others think about the products here on OS. After going through hundreds of lights this one stuck out to me. We had originally bought a light fixture for the dinning room and felt it was not nice enough and was much too small for the room. So we looked on OS site and loved this one, The reviews about ease of install were right on. 15 minutes and it was up. The color is great and the fixture is well balanced.. the alibaster glass is really nice and has a threaded collar that attaches to the fixture, Even if its bumped the glass will not go flying. Everything was this light fixture was exactly the way I was picturing so yes I a m very happy and would highly recommend. Thanks again Overstock.com

I just finished installing this product and I think it looks very much like the picture. It came mostly assembled and everything was there. My only problem was the hollow threaded screw that the entire fixture mounts to, was too short to reach. I have installed many light fixtures and was familiar with this type installation. I eventually had to compress the cover that fits against the ceiling and then bash it in a bit with a mallet in order to attach this fixture. My ceiling is standard.. ie, not overly thick, and the electrical box was not recessed more than normal. The part that came with the light was just too short.
I loved the style and size of this chandelier but was very disappointed to see that it is more black than bronze as stated in the description. When received, the box was busted and when taking the chandelier out of the box, the plastic around it was torn and had stain or something on it - obviously it had been bought previously and returned. I returned the product but I would recommend it if someone was looking for a medium-size black chandelier.
My son bought this light from Overstock and I totally copied him. I love the simple lines and the contrast of black and white. The glass is a beautiful white. It is a clean, classy look in my LR/DR/kitchen. It doesn't overpower the "great room" since this is a small house. It is very pleasant to look at from all angles. Exactly what I was looking for. The price was pleasant, also. I will be looking for shorter light bulbs, though, since the regular light bulbs stick over the top.
The directions included were not great, but the install was pretty standard and fairly easy. Extra parts were included with no use indicated. The light is nice in my small dining room. It was a bit difficult to fine light bulbs that did not show above the glass shades, but once I found them I am pleased.
