I just installed this light fixture last week. It looks great and definitely throws off a lot of light. Also, you can adjust the length of the chain as both the top and bottom parts of the chain come with a clip. As my ceilings are pretty low, I didn't use the chain at all and it still looks nice. I also didn't hang too many of the hanging crystals as I was afraid it would look too gaudy, and it still looks nice. The holes to hang the crystals are small enough where you don't notice something is missing if you don't use them.
However, it was quite difficult to install. The directions that come with it are pretty much non-existent.
This is really a very lovely fixture. The drops are heavy glass, and the whole chandelier really sparkles. The shade around it is sturdy and the material on the shade is actually lots of strings looped around the frame, so you can still see into chandelier. The color is more of an off-white than a bright white.
im so impressed with how freaking gorgeous this light is! i could literally stare at it all day! it was the perfect touch to my house and was exactly what i was looking for! and the price wow! unheard of! im so happy! and i love the fact that it is a cream. i really cannot express how happy and satisfyed i am with this purchase. the chrome is gorgeous and the stringed lampshade is so delicate and amazing!
follow the instructions exactly do not skip ahead. I'm very very happy, im pretty sure my mother will be purchasing one also. what a steal! so so so so happy!
i will have to post pictures.
I bought this chandelier for my bedroom and it's beautiful! Everyone wants to know where I got it and they love it. I have it on a dimmer switch which is nice since the 6 lights give off so much light! For some sad reason, not many homes-- new and old don't put lights in the center of the room and it drives me crazy when I'm trying to figure out what to wear. Is it navy or black? But I don't have this problem with this light and can crank it up when I want to see what I'm wearing or have full light, or I can put it lower on the dimmer switch when I want less light. It's perfect. The shade is transparent. Think of lots of fishing wire wrapped in silk-- that's what the shade is like. I also didn't use all the crystal...I used the center piece with the ball, and then one crystal drop under each light, otherwise it was a tad much for my bedroom. I LOVE it!

Great chandelier. It was easy to put together Had read some of the reviews before I purchased that said it took time to put together. I was prepared to spend some time putting it together put it was a snap! I did replace it in the same location of my original dated chandelier in my dinning room so it went together very easily. I have had experience replacing lighting so I was able to do it all myself. It does help to have a helping had when hanging. I would say so worth the price and have gotten nothing by complements on it. I also love that the shade is really a string of threads, gives it a very nice airy look. Don't hesitate, this is totally worth it!

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.
Description says chrome and "cream." Picture online appears pretty white. I'm looking for a crisp white color. Off-white or cream not ideal. Thanks.blakez on Aug 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Reading through the reviews, it appears the product is more of an off-white than a crisp white.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 29, 2012
Do you know the weight of the assembled product? I need to hang it from a recessed can converter which will only support approximately 25 lbs.stelliecrs on Aug 18, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The shipping weight is 10 pounds, so the item itself should weigh about 9 pounds.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 20, 2012

Unfortunately, we do not have any matching sconces, but we do carry a number of chrome sconces. They can be found using the search bar.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 3, 2012
I can not use this if it has to be installed threw the ceiling. Is it able to be plugged in? I understand you recommend it to be installed threw the ceiling but that is not an option for me.mwills on May 27, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This chandelier can be rewired so that it can be used with a wall plug. However, this must be done by a professional.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 2, 2012

I have this chandelier and my shade broke while we were doing some remodeling. I keep looking online for the shade, but can't find it anywhere. Can you give me a place to call to order the shade alone?ashers11 on May 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
