This chandelier is beautiful! It is large and has clean lines and subtle color. As another writer explained, it seems to change color when lit. The grey wood detail is a bit distressed, but not "country" or rustic. I love mine so much I ordered a second one! The black ceiling plate and (long) cord really make this chandelier pop with nice contrast to the grey wood and cream-and-grey shade. Clean simple lines, beautiful shade and warm color make this one a winner!
We installed this light in our dining room. It took a LONG time, and the directions cover only the assembly of the light itself. The installation part is up to you! We finally had to call an electrician, due to continual circuit tripping. But now that it is properly installed, I am happy. It fits well in our decor, and updates it. The drum shade is very pretty, with a linen weave that is highlighted once the light is turned on. But one thing that surprised me is the color of the turned wooden shaft. In the photo, it appears white. When I took it out of the box, it was quite gray (charcoal). Once you flick the light on, it appears white again. Magic!!
Love this light! I was so happy when I opened the box and took the light out...so much nicer in person. I was afraid the spindle might make it too country or rustic which is not the look I'm going for. Not the case, it's actually perfect, adding texture and interest. As noted in previous reviews the spindle is definitely gray when the light is off and more white when the light is off. My light is in the dining room which we don't use very often so the light is often off and I love the gray color. The drum itself appears more substantial than the OS picture indicates. The only thing I don't love is that the shade is linen and has definite textured lines which are accentuated when the light is on. I would prefer a shade with no lines but it's not bad. No problems with installation. Warning: we almost threw the diffuser away so check your box carefully. My husband also loves it which is another bonus. Just an overall great light!
This is exactly the light fixture I have been looking for. Modern, yet classic. Like other reviewers have said, when the light is off the shaft is a medium gray color but when the light is on it turns more of an off white. The shade is made really well and the color is true to the image online. The only thing negative to say about mine is that it came with some scratches in the shaft but once it was installed you really didn't notice them anymore. I love this purchase.
