I love this light. I wasn't expecting too much because I don't like chrome too much and wasn't sure if the crystals would look tacky, etc. I installed it over my kitchen table and I love it. I have 8 ft. ceilings and the prior lighting fixture in my kitchen cast the light down. Now the light bounces everywhere and has really brightened the room and made the ceilings seem higher, which was my goal. It is the look of a chandelier but up high enough that it really works with 8 ft. ceilings. The chrome isn't overwhelming because the shimmery shade and the crystals make the whole fixture gleam and sparkle. I just love it. (also very easy to install, I added the crystals in about 10 mins and my husband had it wired up in about 5 mins).
This light is beautiful and great value for the money. If I had spent more money I would have expected the glass to be crystal, the shade to not have a seam and the spokes at the top of the shade to be chrome and not white. That being said, I got what I paid for, it is a beautiful addition to my bedroom. It is the exact right size, the lighting is excellent and it really was the finishing touch to bringing my bedroom together.
Definitely an eye catcher when you enter the room. The theme for the room I used this in was black and tan. Tan walls, black velvet curtains, black chair and crown moulding, tan carpet and a white leather sectional I also ordered from overstock. The room is very contemporary and this light fixture was perfect. The installation instructions were poor although they suggest a licensed electrician. Not the best quality, but for me it was the design element.
I fell in love with this light because is goes with my decor very well. A chic modern industrial look! It came packaged extremely well. Even the crystals were individually wrapped. They included a set of cloth gloves to use while applying the crystals to the chandalier. All-in-all it was fairly easy to install. The bolts that were included to mount to the ceiling were a bit short so we had to do a little reengineering to get it to fit properly. No biggie though. It looks gorgous and I have had numerous compliments. I have 8 foot ceilings and it does not overwhelm the space at all. Great location for a spot that you really want to have a chandalier but do not have the ceiling height to mount one. This does the trick!
I recently made over our bedroom paying particular attention to not make it too frilly for my husband. But I wanted one frilly thing, and this was it! I actually bought 2 and they are perfect! I love them! They add a touch of femininity without going over the top.
