I ordered this chandelier to replace a more expensive pendant light from the lighting store that was preferred by our new construction home builder. The light just wasn't bright enough, and didn't wow! the room the way I envisioned it. So I went to Overstock to remedy the situation. Based on all the rave reviews, I felt comfortable choosing this chandelier. We have 10 ft ceilings, so we could have used a bit more extension on the 4 rods that extend downwards from the ceiling, but it still looks beautiful. I used candelabra based bulbs that are each 60W, although I tried both CFL candelabras and lower wattage (recommends 60w), but the dimmer the bulbs, the more pronounced the dapple effect on the walls. Our walls are Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray, so I wanted something to enliven the room. We have dark hand scraped floors, so I brightened it up with gold curtains, and felt the shiny chrome and prism effect from the crystal pieces would add to the shimmer. I wasn't disappointed. ...
After a very long search, this pendant chandelier caught my eye and the price was terrific, so I took a chance and bought 3 for our new (large) island. We just had them installed on a dimmer, and they are GORGEOUS. The rustic aged copper chandelier combined with the surrounding lampshade make such a good mix. I would think this light would be as pretty over a table, or in a set of two or just one over a smaller island. For the look I was going for, I was expecting to pay 3X the cost of the light, so I am very pleased. They arrived well packaged in separate boxes, and shipped quite fast. The shade provides a mellow glow to the room on the dimmer, but when turned up, provides good lighting. You can use 40w for each bulb or do 20w like I did...I'm sure either way would be nice.
This is a beautiful fixture if you can get it together. Would suggest having an electrician assemble and hang it. It comes in a million pieces and you have to wire this fixture! I am not talking about hanging the crystals, which took me about 2 hours, It took my husband 2 evenings working on it and in the end we read the reviews and got some good ideas of how to get it wired! But the finished product is worth the work. It looks like a much more expensive fixture once you get it up.
