I get so many compliments on this chandelier. Probably more than anything else in my home. It is modern but classy. Fits beautiful over a rectangle dining table for 6-8. I've had it for 5-6 years now and it's much cheaper than comparable ones at home depot or lowes. It was a pain to install but well worth it.
This chandelier is absolutely beautiful. It was perfect for my dining room. Lots of light, bling and sparkle. Received many compliments. Sold my house and the buyers wanted to keep it, I will buy it again if I have a formal rectangular dining room.
We bought this to stage our house, the realtor told us to take down all of our pricey higher end stuff down lest it complicate the sale. Our house was listed in the high 900s and it fit in beautifully. Our electrician put it in and it took him an hour and a half. But part of that was carefully taking down the old one. It's made in China so screwing it in etc. Installing it? Not the easiest. But the finished product is perfect and photograps beautifully.
We recently retired and moved to Florida where I decided to go all contemporary. So many of my neighbors brought their old, very heavy and traditional furniture and mine is light, moderns and straight lines. I can't count the number of compliments that I have received on this chandelier and on many of the other furniture that I have purchased from Overstock. The best store to do business with.
We purchased this light for our dining room and now that it is installed, it is really pretty. For the price, it is a great value. The materials are not high-end, but neither is the price, so it is what we expected. Installation was difficult. One of the major challenges is that there isn't a good spot to put a level on it, so it was trial-and-error to try to get the thing level. Plus, it was easy to shorten the cords, but once shortened, we couldn't figure out how to lengthen them again, so we had just inch the wires shorter and shorter until it seemed close enough to level. It didn't come with a piece to let us rotate the light (to make it go the same direction as our dining room table), so we had to go to the hardware store to get one. It only cost a few dollars, but it would have been nice if it had been included so we didn't have to go to the store halfway through installation. We never could get the silver part at the top to lie completely flat against the ceiling. I'll try to include a picture of that from the angle at which it bothers me most. However, most of the time people are looking at other things in the room and don't notice it. Be aware that the light bulbs can be seen through the decorative plastic crystals, and when you're sitting at the table, the bulbs are very visible when you look up. We ordered specific LED lights that we thought would look nicer than the standard LED bulbs because of this. All that being said, we're happy with the way the chandelier looks now that it is up. It's a great size, has a nice sparkle, and puts out a lot of light. In fact, we installed a dimmer switch because on full brightness it can even be a little too much. The light throws a cool pattern on the walls and ceiling and we feel that it is a great value compared with similar lights that are much more expensive.
