I am not all that fond of chandeliers. All that crystal smanchy pancy. Yuck! I wanted a semi-flush light in the dining room. Of course I headed over to OVERSTOCK.COM. They rarely fail me. My dining set consisted of heavy dark wood with a chrome bar underneath. I am not a big fan of chrome either. But this light struck my fancy for two weeks I lined of lights comparing them to each other and flip flopping. I finally decided on this one with some fear. It soon arrived and boy was I excited to take it out the box! Stunning! The picture does it no justice. A quietly stated elegance. The crystals are real and the white gloves come in handy to attached them. Follow the directions the crystals are three tiered and have a specific order. It only took 20-30 mins to attached them. The directions to the electrical were not clear to me I had installed lights before and it was straight forward. No need for a electrician just basic knowledge and common sense. Once my beautiful light was up. I just stared at it. Then I cut on the lights! OMG this has changed the whole room. The crystals, the scrolled drum and the slight sliver sheen underneath is mesmerizing. I tore myself away and ran to the hardware store for a dimmer switch. It is so romantic. (sigh) . People have paid me loads of compliments over this light and my dining room. It's now the crowning jewel of the house.

This lovely chandelier has become the centerpiece of my dining room makeover. As others have said, this looks more expensive than it is. Love all the sparkly crystals and the drum shade with black circles. Am picking up the circle theme in the rest of the room. This combined contemporary and traditional in just te right way.
I ordered this for a client. The overall experience was great from start to finish - clear and customer-friendly website, easy payment, transparent pricing for customs duties and delivery (we ordered it from France), and very prompt delivery. The product itself looks lovely, it's made of heavy, neatly perforated iron, it doesn't warp and it feels solid. The chrome bits look good, too. The ornaments are glass, not crystals - the price reflects this - but they are very pretty and very easy to attach to the chandelier. Some of them were scratched or chipped, which is probably because they were wrapped in pairs, and not individually. The customer service dealt with this quickly and I'm now waiting for replacements. Very good quality for the price, great service.
I got this for our dining room because I wanted an updated, glitzy look. I didn't want anything to hang too low so the semi flush style was perfect. I have received many compliments on it when we have people over! It is a very good option for a good price!
This is a lovely chandelier. It was a little smaller than I anticipated. it is true to its measurements but I guess I needed something larger. I although thought based on the photo and the comments that it would have been a little heavier and a little more distinctive. I think this would go better in a smaller apartment or perhaps a smaller dining area. I have a very large greatroom and the high ceilings are swallowing up the chandelier. I am going to keep it and move it to maybe my eat in kitchen nook or maybe even my bedroom which has lower ceilings and is a smaller room. It is very charming and lovely. The color is more of a black and white. I would recommend this to others.
I was worried about purchasing this after reading some negative reviews, but I'm so glad I did. I absolutely LOVE this light! It's exactly what I needed for a center light in my 10x11 kitchen. I wanted a statement piece that would be easy enough to clean and provide me with a ton of light while I'm working in the kitchen, but also something that could be dimmed later on. This was PERFECT! Assembly was quick and easy, and my husband had it installed within 20 minutes. I'm very happy with Overstock and with my purchase.
I love this fixture! I just put it up last night, and could not be happier. We placed this in our bathroom, and it just adds the perfect amount of pizazz :) We have 8 ft ceilings, so I couldn't have anything that hung down too far, and this fits the bill. I would definitely buy this again!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The surround appears more black to me than oil rubbed bronze.
I really love this flush mount chandelier. I wanted a mix of modern/traditional to go with my eclectic dining room feel, and this light completely fits! The crystals add a touch of elegance and the shade is a lovely pattern. Mine doesn't really "throw" patterns across the wall despite the pattern in the shade, but it does give off great light overall. I have short ceilings -- approx 7.5-8 ft and this works PERFECTLY above our dining room table. Great buy!! Highly recommended!!

This flushmount was purchased for a bedroom. The scale of the fixture is perfect. The flush mount allows ample clearance below the crystals. The 4 bulbs at 60 watts is more then sufficient lighting wise. Bright when you need it. I have mine on a dimmer to reduce the brightness for typical, every day use. It adds a touch of elegance without being too over the top. The shade tones the crystal aspect down to give it a modern twist. The fixture was easy to install as well. I did it in under an hour including the time to take down the lighted ceiling fan that was in its place. For general safety I would still recommend having a professional handyman or electrician install the fixture. I am highly satisfied and highly recommend the fixture.
