I am giving this item an average rating because the directions are terrible. I wouldn't really call them directions, as it didn't come with written instructions on how to assemble the light, just a photo. The light itself is very pretty.
Even after reading the negative reviews, I put this on my Christmas list. It was the only fixture I found that had that little touch of elegance I was looking for, for my dining room. My husband hung it this afternoon and it's beautiful! My only negative is the seam in the shade. Fortunately, we were able to hang the shade in a direction not within eyes notice. Otherwise, simply gorgeous and adds that touch of elegance.
I needed to upgrade the lighting in my masterbath on a budget because I wanted to put my house on the market. I wanted a quality piece at a great price. It's a gorgeous chandelier that compliments many decorating styles. Every buyer that came through loved the light and wanted to make sure it stayed. This small change made a big impact.
I needed someone to install this that knew what they were doing, but it was up in no time and it looks beautiful! I wish the diffuser disc on the bottom wasn't quite so shiny and reflective (it has a plastic look to it), but otherwise, its a lovely fixture.
