I ordered the 4-light pendant fixture for my dining room, and it arrived well packaged in a week. With the help of a friend it was easy to install in under an hour. We hard wired it where my old ceiling light had been . All the necessary hardware is included, as is an opaque diffuser that inserts into the bottom of the shade. It will use up to 4 bulbs of up to 100 watts each; I put 4 - 40 watt bulbs in mine - on a wall mounted dimmer switch - and I love the soft but bright light it gives! With higher wattage bulbs, this would give off a lot of light. The look and proportions are perfect for over a dining room or conference table & with the included metal cord covers you can adjust the drop length from the ceiling. I've looked at drum pendants for almost a year and am very happy with my choice. The shade is a true white, slightly textured, and the cord and bottom finial are black metal. Well made & a great look!

Honestly I haven't installed this chandelier yet since it is for my dining room that is being remodeled. I might have to wait several more months to install it. But I'm sure it'll look perfect for my semi traditional living room and I'm sure it'll look really good even for a contemporary house. Assembly wasn't difficult, I already rehearsed putting them together because I couldn't wait to see its complete look. Since it wasn't actual assembly, I can't say anything about lighting yet.

I placed this in my daughters bedroom and it is perfect. She has a scroll metal bed and this coordinates well with it. The crystals add just a nice youthful flair to the room. It takes about 3 hours to put the crystals on and it is a bit tedious but well worth it for the price. Pliers were definitely helpful. I was also worried that 3 lights would not be bright enough for her bedroom but it gives off sufficient light, I have been very happy with the purchase

I hung this in my dining room and it looks great. It gives off plenty of light, and my husband and I both like it.

I was a little worried about the quality, because of the low price, but decided to give it a try. They are nice for the money. I am very happy with them. I bought two for an upscale hotel room and they look really cool.

This fixture is fantastic. A friend had me order one for over his dining room table after seeing my fixture. I placed the fixture in a stairwell and it provides great light. I suggest that you install the light fixture in conjunction with a dimmer switch for light quality adjustment.

This chandelier is beatiful and fits my vintage modern dining room well. I was so proud since I installed this chandelier myself. I don't consider myself handy but I watched serveral you tube videos on installing light fixtures. One great thing about this chandelier (compared to another chandelier we ordered from Overstock) was this one came fully assembled. The wiring is straight forward and the most tedious part was hanging the crystals, which didn't bother me because I was so happy I did it all myself. Rule one is always always turn off the breaker to that particular outlet! Great product and I highly reccommend.

Beautiful light for the price, I have had a lot of compliments on this light which is over my dining room table. Love the scroll work and it puts out a lot of light as well.

I actually ended up returning this because it was too large for my dining room table, which is a small round wood table in a little room, but I really liked it! After looking for several months, the design of this was exactly what I wanted. Rustic yet contemporary with a feminine touch. If you want classic with a twist, this is the one for you. If I had a larger home I would have kept it and put it somewhere else. It came packed well and timely and is beautiful!! It was hard to return!

This arrived quickly & everything was in perfect shape. My husband put this up over our dining room table, he had no problems, was done in about a half hour...it looks great. I love the style & the black leaf cut-outs with the white drum shade underneath. It matchs my black & white accents wonderfully, looks expensive. I am very happy with this purchase, & would not hesitate to order more items from Overstock.com!

The Metal Leaf Hanging Light is hanging in the small dinning room. The light arrived in good condition and I remembered to look carefully for the defuser. Went together easily. The only thing is I wish it was a little brighter light. But I still love it. Goes good my decor.

Assembly and installation was fairly straightforward and hassle-free. We hung the light in our small to medium sized dining room and find it may be better suited to a bedroom. The fixture is on the smaller side, and as it only allows for two 60w lightbulbs, it is quite dim. That said, it is a lovely piece and we have had several compliments!

This was purchased to update my mother's 1950s Cape Cod dining room in New York. It was well packaged and easily installed by my brother. It came with several rods to accommodate different ceiling heights - very clever. It looks very high end whether you are up close or far away. The diffuser is glass not plastic. The brushed nickel 'arms' are of a nice weight and thickness. My favorite part is the bird's eye maple veneer shade. The light is very warm coming through the shade. There are three bulb sockets and gives off very good light using compact fluorescent bulbs. The only negative, the bulbs need to be screwed in from the top. This will be difficult for my mother, but compact fluorescent bulbs last a long time so not such a big deal.

It does wonders to our dining room! I cannot believe my husband didn't change out our old lighting fixture earlier. It's very contemporary, sleek, and fits perfectly with our decor. However, it takes 3 light bulbs which makes lighting very bright. We recommend, if you don't have one already to install a dimmer. Overall, we LOVE it and are very happy!

Absolutely love it....everytime I walk pass it in my dining room I admire it! Received lots of complements about it. My husband installed it in 15 minutes.

I am an avid Overstock customer. Always very pleased with them in every way. Again, received another item that I'm 100% happy with. Quite easy to assemble and hang. I did the assembly and my husband hung up in our turret room. Gives a decent amount of light. Looks expensive and classy. Put new rug (from Overstock), 2 chairs and table under chandelier and looks like a page out of a magazine. My husband is more on the traditional side and I have more of a current and updated style. This fixture is perfect for us. Have received many compliments from friends. But most of all, we love it! Great buy, very tasteful chandelier.

I am pleased with my purchase of this beautiful chandelier. Yes, I was slightly disappointed because it's cheaply made however, for the cost I will not complain! It looks great!!!!!!

I loved this chandelier although the glass piece needed to be replaced due to the hole in the center of the glass was drilled to small. Overstock has sent out a replacement piece and their customer service was quick to take care of the matter. I have ordered from them before and always felt the product met my expectations and beyond.

I put this in my laundry room. It is so stylish. It makes me happy every time I go in there to fold. It was pretty easy for my handyman to install, looks great and seems like pretty good quality, I think. I would definitely put this other places in my home. Love it!
Chandeliers and pendants have always been popular lighting options because they can highlight spaces and bring some pizzazz and sparkle to a room. The popularity of chandeliers and pendants has made Overstock.com's wide selection even wider and has probably left you with several questions about how to choose, hang and care for the right chandeliers and pendants. Read on to find the answers to these frequently asked questions.
Whether you are building your dream house or just sprucing up your current home, a chandelier is a great way to add ambiance and decoration to a room. Chandeliers and pendants aren't just for formal dining rooms. The right chandelier can look great in any room. Although chandeliers come in a wide variety of styles, let's start with the top five.
Whether you like antique or contemporary styles, chandeliers can dress up many different rooms. It's easy to update your bedroom with a striking pendant chandelier, or add a crystal chandelier to the dining room for extra sparkle. You may have a few questions about choosing chandelier lighting that works with your style, however. Read on for tips on finding the best chandeliers for your home.
Chandeliers are the ultimate statement piece in a house. From giant crystal chandeliers that hang from high ceilings to simple styles that reside over a family dining table, lighting fixtures have the ability to make a room glow. A chandelier that is not right for your space can seem weighed down and heavy. The wrong chandelier can also lack drama that helps make a room fabulous. If your chandelier is looking old and outdated, it might be time to update with a new style.
Light fixtures can produce big design statements in a room. If something feels incomplete, even after you've decorated, chances are your lighting situation is to blame. Replacing a standard frosted glass pendant light or a boring brass chandelier with something unique and tailored for your style will pull together all the elements of a room and highlight the architecture of a home.
Stylish shelving can serve many purposes in your living room. A wall shelf or bookshelf is an easy way to display some of your favorite decorative accessories and hardcovers, or it can act as a decorative piece of its own. No matter what you plan to use it, here's how to choose the best shelving for your space.
Create an oasis in your backyard by turning your garden and patio into an outdoor living room. Expand the functional area of your home and take advantage of the space you have in your yard. Creating an outdoor living room is easy when you follow these steps.
Formal living rooms need something more than a standard metal curtain rod to exude elegance and timelessness. You can have the most luxurious couches and elaborate wall art, but without the right curtains and curtain rods, the room will still feel bare. The best curtain fabric to hang in living rooms is typically something heavy, with a sheen, like damask or silk. These weighty textiles need equally strong hardware to balance the look. Keep reading to learn more about the best curtain hardware for your formal living room.
Put aside the image of an institutional grey metal desk when searching for metal furniture: Modern designs and techniques offer a much wider variety of styles than you might expect. Whether made of metal alone or combined with glass, acrylic or upholstery, metal furniture provides durable impact for modern homes and businesses. If you're in the market for new furniture, this metal furniture fact sheet should help you in your hunt.

Whether you're short on space and want to hang a wall fireplace or are dreaming of sitting in front of a stylish electric fireplace, the following suggestions will help you choose a fireplace that fits well in your space and warms the room effectively.

Whether you're furnishing your first home or just updating your living room, you need living room furniture that fits your current decor and is comfortable for your family and friends to relax in. With armchairs, sofas and other living room couches to choose from, picking the right style can be somewhat overwhelming. This buying guide will help you sort through all the living room furniture and help you decide on the pieces that will work best in your living room.
Your living room can easily become cozy simply by grouping end tables, sofas, chairs, and other furniture together to create a more intimate setting that encourages conversation. The best end tables for a cozy living room often serve multiple purposes. They can be used simply as a place to set a warm drink on a winter evening or as a useful storage area where magazines, knitting, or other living room essentials are kept. Here are some things to consider when you're shopping for the perfect end tables.
Chandeliers are more than just a way to illuminate a room. They add style and become part of the home decor. Like any decorative piece, the right chandelier can make a big difference in the look and feel of a room. A large or ornate chandelier will overwhelm a small living space, and a small, simple one will not look right in a formal dining room. Here's how to choose the best lighting for your home.
Metal shelving is useful in a number of places throughout your home. It can help foster cleanliness and organization, which are essential to creating a comfortable living or working space. You may think of metal shelves as too industrial for use throughout the home, but they're actually very versatile. While you're creating a storage and organization plan for your home, consider using metal shelving in these five places.
Decor trends come and go, but your bedroom lighting should transcend the look-of-the-moment to suit your bedroom's various functions. When planning bedroom lighting design, consider the space's natural lighting first, and then determine which parts of the room benefit most from general lighting, task lighting, accent lighting and ceiling fans.
Unlike the ceiling fan in your living room that circulates the air with rotating paddles, a bathroom fan features a motorized unit that vents stuffy bathroom air out of the room. A bathroom fan may be an individual unit, or you may purchase a unit that combines bathroom lighting and a fan. If you're installing a new bathroom fan or just replacing the old fan light, here are a few steps to help you get it done right.
Even the most confident of decorators can feel stumped when it comes to a lighting design for the home. After all, major decisions concerning lighting can have a dramatic effect on how your interior spaces look and feel. The diversity of styles, fixtures, sizes, finishes, and even bulbs can intimidate rather than inspire a decorator. Begin the process by looking at the rooms of friends and family that you admire and check out the lighting they use.
After deciding on the purpose and room for your new cabinet, it's time to think about material. As with all furniture, you will want to select a cabinet material depending on what you plan to use your cabinet for, as well as your personal taste. Take a look below to learn about the best materials for cabinets. Wood: The majority of cabinets produced are created with hard wood. Wood cabinets can be found in both traditional and contemporary designs. If you are hoping for durability in addition to design, no cabinet looks better and lasts longer than one manufactured using a solid wood. Cherry cabinets offer a sense of classic luxury while holding up to years of use. Oak cabinets conjure up the feel of subtle country beauty, and maple cabinets can look bright, modern and chic. Metal: Metal cabinets are terrific for those looking for a modern touch in their homes; most metal cabinets have a very forward-looking aesthetic, so they are perfect for a contemporary home. Metal cabinets are also great for home offices. Obviously, metal offers great durability, but it is vulnerable to dings and dents. Keep in mind that most metal cabinets have sharp corners, making them slightly less suitable for homes with kids running around. Glass: If you have something you feel like showing off, nothing is better for display purposes than a glass cabinet. These cabinets are certainly more fragile than those made from other materials, but they offer something other cabinets can't: transparency. Many glass cabinets are manufactured with built-in lighting systems to exhibit whatever you choose to place in them. Because of their show-off quality, glass cabinets are perfect for places you expect guests, such as the dining room and living room. Particle board: If you are shopping for a cabinet on a tight budget, looking into particle board cabinets is worthwhile. Particle board is a relatively new material produced by pressing wood particles together, which is then bound with synthetic resin. Furniture created with particle board is almost always the least expensive option and also the lightest, but you will sacrifice some durability. If you plan to move often, a particle board cabinet could be an ideal option. View All Furniture Back to Guides Directory View All Furniture
