I love these! I spent a lot of time looking for traditional looking, oversized pendants to go over our 8 foot carrera marble island. We were willing to spend a lot more but thought we would give these a try based on the reviews. They are even prettier in person, and very easy to install. Keep in mind that they are larger than most pendants, but we have 10 foot ceilings in our kitchen and the island is over 8 feet long. Would also look great over a dining room/kitchen table.
My bathroom has 9 1/2 foot ceilings. Even so, it was hanging down a little low for its placement which is directly over where you stand in front of the sink. I had the contractor take out a couple of links in each chain (I forget exactly how many now) and it was perfect. Bottom line: there is some flexibility with how low the light hangs--both with respect to the main chain and the three chains that hold the globe in place. I was a little concerned about odd shadows being cast by the glass texture in such a small room, but that was not a problem. Very bright light. I say "good" quality rather than "excellent" because I've seen the old ** design that this is based on and I thought it was a little nicer, but this is very good.
These lanterns say "glass" lanterns in the description but are actually acrylic plastic when you get them. Super cheap. The return was very simple and they said they would give me a full refund because the error was caused by Overstock, but when I checked my credit card, they only returned $$$ of $$$ and now I have to contact them to try to get the full refund. Very sneaky. I order from online companies all the time and this is the my first experience with Overstock. I won't buy from them again. Don't trust the quality of their products and not a fan of their customer service since they don't deliver as promised and I have to now make another call after this fiasco.
The size if this chandelier was much larger than I thought which is a good thing. I ordered 2 for above my kitchen island-we have not installed yet as our house is still being constructed. It is a great value for this style of fixture that is more than twice the price on other websites. Good purchase!
L O V E it ! Beautiful. Hanging in my master bathroom (vaulted ceiling). Great price. Looks major expensive -- similiar design can found at other online sites for much more $$$ - also difficult to find lanterns in chrome finish. Arrived promptly and safe packaging. I had it installed by professional electrician. Even came with white gloves (that my electrician actually used) to help prevent marks on glass ! Would be awesome in kitchen over large island or entryway with high ceilings.
