I selected this chandelier to brighten up a rather dull guest bedroom in my townhouse and it transformed the room. Assembly was easy and installation seemed to go quickly (hired an electrician who had it in within 10 minutes). It made a beautiful replacement to the dull domed light that came with the room.
I ordered this fixture for my bedroom, and was so glad I did. When the light is on the shade casts a slight shadow on the walls as if the wall is lined with small stripes. It actually looks like our walls have been painted that way...sooo cool! The crystals were a little time consuming to put on, but not difficult. I LOVE this fixture and you will too!
As i mentioned in the title, the shade was not exactly cream but more of a off-white..not stark white but off white.. but still when the lights go in it it's pretty see through and lovely. i had a professional install it because let's face it couldn't bother the hubby with that kind of job after he had put together the side+ coffee tables we had also got on overstock..but the light is bright and we are loving it! the crystals were easy to get on... the only problem i had with mine was one of the arms of the candelabra was a little bent..but nothing to really notice. If you are thinking twice about this light..don't.
We installed this wonderful chandelier in the dinning room. It is of a chrome finish with the cream shade. The shade is made of a kind of thread that you are able to see the chandelier trough and also the shades match the one for the Warehouse of Tiffany Eros White Chandelier we got for the kitchen. It compliments it. Great focal point for the wow factor when you enter the rectangular room. It is a perfect piece for our home. Highly recommend it.
This is a beautiful light and I like it over my dining room table, though possibly it's a little opulent for my homey place. It looks exactly like the picture except that it's much more white than cream. It's possible that they didn't send me the right color, but now that I've assembled it and paid an electrician to wire and hang it, I just don't want to go to the trouble and expense to return it and get another. I don't even have all six 60 watt bulbs in yet, but it gives plenty of light in my dining room. I'm glad I had a dimmer installed. Assembling the crystals took me about 30-40 minutes and wasn't difficult. I would have given it 5 stars if it was the color described and pictured.
this is a stunning chandelier. we put the flush-mount black one in the kitchen and this is a perfect complement in my dining room. it was missing 3 of the crystal teardrops, but overstock sent the replacements ones in a very short time. this is just a beautiful light fixture. i am extremely pleased.
Okay, a disclaimer...I have a zeal for lighting, particularly chandeliers. I have a total of six in my home and three are antique crystal pieces. But I wanted something a little more modern mixed with elegant for my formal dining room that would compliment the space without being overwhelming. This chandelier fit the bill perfectly. It certainly makes a statement and everybody who has seen it has offered raving compliments. Some of the crystals hang below the shade while others are seen through the understated shimmery shade. It's like a chandelier in a negligee! It's gorgeous and well worth the cost. I've seen similar chandeliers, (almost identical), in lighting stores as well as decor specialty shops and the price is more than twice the cost offered at Overstock. Installation?....easy, peasy...I did it myself and I'm just a regular gal who knows to turn off the breaker and attach wire nuts! If I can do it, anybody can! Oh...I also installed a sliding dimmer switch. IMO, it's a must have for this fixture. I highly recommend this piece if you're looking for something that offers a traditional feel, yet contemporary style. Enjoy!
I had bought this chandelier, in black, for my dining room & loved it SO much, when we moved, I bought it in cream, for my bedroom. It is STUNNING!! The shade is actually tiny "threads".... The crystals super easy to put on.... The whole effect is just beautiful..... Looks much more expensive, than it is!....I LOVE O.co... Can NOT beat them for quality or price!... I have bought MANY times & NEVER been disappointed!!!!
