I was originally looking for a black chandelier for our home office, but saw this and fell in love with it. I was pleasantly surprised when we received it, and it was just as beautiful as the picture. Super easy to get the crystals attached, and my husband was able to wire it to the fixture. It brings a tasteful elegance to the room! By the way, it IS metal, not plastic - like some of the chandeliers I saw on line.
I purchased this for my (large) master closet and it's PERFECT! I love the crystal ball that hangs down. Nothing cheap about this lamp. It gives loads of light (something I worried about) and the dark drum helps keep it from being too "girly" for my husband. This would look beautiful in any room.
