I selected this chandelier to brighten up a boring dining room in my townhouse. I purchased it along with the white version for another room and I'm glad I did. Assembly was easy and installation seemed to go quickly (hired an electrician who had it in within 10 minutes). The flat, low ceilings in the dining room concerned me initially, but suspended over a table, the height of the chandelier was no issue. I liked this style because it could sit rather flush to the ceiling and all the action was just beneath the main curtain. Really made the house feel more put together and elegant.
