We haven't actually installed this yet either, but I can't wait. We are renovating our entire house. I bought this to go over a freestanding bathtub to add class to an open-concept master bathroom. I can't wait to see how it looks with everything completed.
After spending months looking for the perfect lighting for our newly remodeled mid-century home, I found this fabulous light for our bedroom. The fixture is classy and modern looking without being too much. The light softy fills the space and is very inviting. There were no problems installing this fixture and it hangs perfectly. Unless you are looking for the threads on the screw in the finial, you'll never see them. Everyone who sees it simply loves this light. It's a beautiful light at a great price.
This ceiling light has a very plain fabric shade with shiny chrome parts above and a "crystal" finial below, an odd combination of plain and fancy. The flat plastic bottom that filters the light is a different shade of white, a blueish tint, compared to the linen tint of the fabric shade. It depends on your taste whether you like the effect or not. I got this light because I wanted a fixture where I could reach the bulbs without unscrewing anything, and it fits that requirement. I don't like the shiny chrome, but the price of the lamp was way cheaper than anything at Home Depot, Target, etc. Why are lights so expensive?
Assembles easily and provides a good amount of light especially if you use CFLs, which are highly recommended as the only drawback to this fixture is that replacing the light bulbs requires installation from above the rim of the fixture. You can't unscrew the bottom to install new bulbs so incentive is definitely to have longer-lasting bulbs in place. I'm short so an extra tall ladder - or helpful super is necessary. Otherwise, beautiful looking fixture.
I ordered this a while back - my first purchase from Overstock.com. The packaging was terrific - it arrived in perfect condition. The only complaint is that part of the white plastic diffuser for the bottom had some black smudges along the edges. I managed to get most of it off. It was easy to install and goes perfectly with my bedside lamps - overall I am extremely pleased with this!
I'm very pleased with this fixture. I put it together and hung it myself with no issues. (And I'm far from "handy!") The only reason for rating it a 4 instead of a 5 is that the shade seems to be a little more beige or yellow than the picture indicates, especially with the light on. But I still love it and have received many compliments.
We received this light and initially thought it looked great, however began to notice smudges and what appeared to be dirt on the under edge of the shade. Not to mention there was dirt throughout the packaging. We tried to clean the shade, however it appears that the marks are caused by the glue used to adhere the shade to the metal frame. If the light were not so large, I would have sent it back. It has a great look, however I am not sure of the quality.
arrived fairly quickly.. Awesome modern light ... looks better in person. ..very high quality for the price... have had many compliments so far...I am very happy with my purchase ......I would recommend this product to anyone looking to update their lighting.......
We bought and installed 4 of these drum lights in our newly renovated house. We're so pleased with them. They're in each of the bedrooms and one in the hall. They give off a soft, sophisticated vibe and really enhance the newly neutral colors. We couldn't be happier.
I am so sad to see the light fixture that I paid more than twice the amount it is on overstock. It is my favorite light and makes my bedroom look so sophisticated. I wish I could buy another one at this great overstock price, But there wouldn't be a place to hang it. I love that it has a covering at the bottom so you don't see the bulbs. You can use energy saving CFL bulbs in it if you like. GIves off the perfect amount of light.
I saw this light fixture on a decor website - another store's lighting fixture (exact same as on Overstock.com) priced WAY higher! When these arrived (I bought two), we had a electrician install them (would recommend), and they have really completed our entryway and hallway (at the top of our stairway). They are elegant and yet contemporary. A real find! LOVE!
Sophisticated combination of chrome, crystal and the white fabric shade, just what I was looking for. My only complaint and reason for the 4 stars is the plastic base that is held in place by the crystal part. This plastic base that diffuses the light warps easily and doesn't look straight, but this is a minor consideration. I received the item promptly and in good order, as always when I shop with Overstock.
This fixture is very nice. The quality is awesome for a very good price. I did a lot of searching for a drum shade fixture and each one was priced well over $200. The shade is very large, but works well on the high ceiling in my guest bedroom. It will definitely make a great statement in any room.
This is a great looking lamp, especially for the price! It looks very modern and can be used in any room. I used it in the kitchen and got many compliments from family and friends. Very similar lamps cost double the price in stores so its definitely a great deal.
