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!!
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!
Bought this pendant light for my dining room which is dark gray. Shade color is natural with a linen texture. Cord and base are black. The base is a light gray that is "etched" with white. Not a solid gray. Easy to install with instructions.
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.
After spending a lot of time reading reviews and browsing through multiple light fixtures, I settled on this. Like others reviewed, I thought it looked too big when I took it out of the box. However, after reading what others wrote about it being just the right size, I had an electrician install it. It is overpowering and very bland looking in my dining room. The room is not large (11' x 12') and I have a 48" round table. I am thinking of adding some kind of trim ( grey ribbon?) to break up the vast blah-ness of the shade. My shade is larger than another reviewer stated- 22.5" diameter and 10 3/4" high. Are there different manufacturers? Sigh... Maybe I'll get used to it.
I have had this well over a year and I still adore it. I get compliment constantly on it. It is much more cream colored than the photo shows. Depending on what bulb you use, you can get a lighter white color to emit. I would order this again and again!
This was my first time ordering from Overstock. I had a few questions so I called customer service. To make sure the answer was correct, she forwarded my questions on to a person who was in the know. A few days later I received an email answering my questions. I was very impressed. This light is beautiful...simple, but elegant and made well. I have a 54" round table and it's the perfect size. I had it put on a dimmer switch so we can have lower light for dinner and brighter light for playing games. It was a perfect buy for me.
I love, love this pendant. I have it hung in my dining room and it's the perfect statement with my dining room set and decor. I was initially thinking something glass but then decided on a more low maintenance lighting fixture and I'm so glad I did. I highly recommend this light and you can't beat the price!
I read reviews and decided to take a chance on this. I love it. I hung it over my breakfast table area and its perfect. I did buy a fabric cord cover to put over the black cord and people have commented on it all the time. Love the wood and the fabric shade and it comes with a diffuser to finish it off so you don't have to look at the bulbs. There is only one seam in the shade so you can place it on a side that doesn't get seen as much. love the size of it!
I am entirely happy with the purchase of this hanging lamp and the design is very up to date. It is a bit larger than I thought, but no problem because my dining table is quite large. My husband, who isn't the best when it comes to DIY, installed it quickly.
