I was a little disappointed that the lamp shade is more of an off white than a pure white, like in the picture. I bought bright white bulbs thinking that would make a difference but it didn't. I already had an electrician install it on my 15 foot ceilings so I'm not switching it out. Pretty light fixture, just know that it is not appear white when its tuned on.
This is a wonderful addition to the room and with the three bulbs it can light the entire living room. It was very easy to install but be careful to make sure all the little pieces are in the proper order. We forgot a couple and had to start over. Our only complaint is the seemingly unnecessary second plate that hangs below the one covering the electrical box. It must have some purpose but the light would be prettier without it. We like it so much we'd buy it again either way.
Purchased this for my eat in kitchen area. I absolutely LOVE it! I had also ordered the shorter ceiling mount one for the kitchen. Though pretty, I am wishing I would have ordered 2 of these and just flush mounted the 2nd one. as you cannot see the beautiful details as well with my high ceilings.
This is a gorgeous fixture at a great price, but it had to be modified by an electrician because it is designed in such a way that there are actually two canopies, which is not shown clearly in the photograph. The electrician modified the piece by shortening the chain and removing the canopy in the middle of the fixture's length, and it now looks lovely. I like it quite a lot now, but I think that the strange design does it no justice, and will cost you something to make right.
I read the reveiws and didn't take them to heart but once we received the product one of the glass crystals was chipped (that's ok we turned it upside down and it's unnoticable.) That's not the issue. The plate you put on the bottom is YELLOW and has a huge scratch running through it, it's like you need to peel off the film to make it clear but there is no film to peel off it's just an ugly yellow shade. TAKE PRECAUTION when hanging and use gloves as the shade is VERY WHITE and any dirt will stain. I just can't get over the yellow bottom shade and can't figure it out. The price is right so I will live with it after rmy husband spent 3 hours hanging it but not for the long term.
