Three stars because it is a pretty fixture and bright. Other reviewers are correct, you cannot see the crystal drop down unless you are several feet away, not that big of a deal to me as you can see it while approaching the room. The directions are not very explanatory, mostly diagram drawings that are not that clear either as to where to place all of the hardware that came in the bag. The opening to insert the wires through is very slim, but manageable if you push all three wires in together versus pulling them through. I am pleased with it after installation.
Impressed with this light! Great value, provides plenty of light for a good size room! Can use in bedroom, kitchen, office, living room, I have in main entrance, had 60W bulbs in, actually too much light! Replaced with 40w, perfect lighting, easy install, detailing on the diffuser works!
We bought 3 of these to replace outdated flush mount fixtures in a long hallway. They look great--installation was fairly easy, and they give off a nice amount of light. Since they are down a long hallway, unlike the other reviewers, we are able to see the crystal ball at the top as you look down the hall. The only complaint I have (and the reason for only 4 stars) is that one of the lampshades came dented. Since my husband put them up while I was out, and had broken down the boxes, I did not want to go through the hassle of repacking and returning. But other than that, I would recommend to anyone looking for a contemporary, affordable fixture.
finally installed this light. reading other reviews and I understand all the different things people are saying........but it's still such a nice looking fixture and really a good scale as well. I'm using this for my very small hallway. You do see the crystal ball but you have to standing in the living room to see it. I do have some wobbliness as well, I'll have my contractor look at it.
We have been looking for lights for our dining room for 2 years, when we saw these lights we new we wanted them. The fastest free shipping ever, we received them today only toke 2 days.. they are already up and we were so right in picking them.. They were packaged very well with fed-x front door delivery did i say free shipping! I have ordered several things now from Over stock, and the reviews help so much to see what others think of the items.. we have not been disappointed yet.. thanks Overstock.com
We were looking for something for our bedroom and were bored with the lights at ** and ******. This one is different and we liked it for the shape and style. Keep in mind, it has a plastic base. So, if you are sitting underneath it, you will see some cheap white plastic. But, you get what you pay for and for the price, this was definitely workable.
We bought this light fixture for our living room, needing something that would shed enough light to read by in the evenings. It was easy to install, looks great, and sheds a bright, but not glaring light over the entire room. As other reviewers have noted, the balls on the stem aren't visible unless you're pretty far away, but that's not an issue for us. What is visible is understated yet attractive. We're very pleased!
I have nothing negative to say about these. They look great and weren't too bad in price. Other reviewers mentioned not being able to see the crystal ball at the top, but we use these in our basement so you can see the crystal ball as you walk down the stairs. You also can see it from a few feet away. I like these a lot - definitely changed the look of the space.
I was very happy with the style and quality of the fixture. The only recommendation I could make to the manufacturer is to include better assembly directions. You are really on your own with this one. It's not that difficult because there are not that many parts to assemble. If you have assembled items before, you will certainly be able to figure it out. It would have been a faster assembly if there were step by step instructions.
