Great fixture, great price. I bought this light for over my kitchen table and was afraid it was going to be on the gray side, but it was not. The colors are a mixture of brown and tan tones with a bit of black and the hardware is also a brown tone. Matches my kitchen perfectly and gives off a lot of light, but I do have it on a dimmer also.
Easy to order, came promptly and was packaged securely. Looks exactly as the photo did on the website and of course, was easy to install. The texture of the shade is very nice, subtle, and has an almost silk-like sheen, though not shiney, but subtle. Gives it an elegant feel. I'd order it again. Very good quality for the money.
I am in love with this light fixture! It is very large and substantial, while not being overpowering to a room. It is styled very classically with great neutral colors that are more on the dark side. It is hanging over my kitchen table. It was relatively easy to install -- not too many pieces. It hangs evenly. One trick to save yourself some headache if the chain that won't hang flat -- thread the cord through every other link of chain, versus every link. As others have said, the diffuser does not lay flat -- this doesn't bother me and is really not noticeable unless you study it closely. Also, be aware that, with the open top of the fixture and a diffuser on the bottom, more light shines upward onto the ceiling than down onto the table. This fixture produces a much more soft, dim light than the fixture I had above the table before. This might bother some. I have three 60-watt bulbs in there now -- maybe 100-watts would be better if one wants more light. 40-watts would be definitely too dim. Overall, this light fixture is just flat-out beautiful. It looks EXACTLY like the picture -- color and everything. Love it!
We love this light. We purchased it in our old home before moving, and bought three more for the new house. It's affordable with a high-end look. Love the color of the materials, as well. The shade is neutral and the hardware is a dark bronze, almost black, finish. Highly recommend.
I did like this product however the dimensions are VERY misleading. It was supposed to be 21" by 22". Well, it is - sorta. The lamp shade itself is only 9" tall (or a little less). I believe the dimensions are based on the three balls on the chain. It looked so small over my kitchen table. I have a long rectangular table and wanted a light over it. But the short shade looked horrible. Now I know to really dig deeper for the true dimensions. Overall, the shade was very nice and looked like it was decent quality for the price.
I am TOTALLY a review reader. I read, and re-read the reviews on this light. I "thought" it was just what I was looking for, but got caught up in a few points of other reviews (quality and exact color). I was also reluctant due to the fact that I would have to pay to send it back if I did not like it. Well, then I got a coupon AND these were quickly selling out so I decided to go for it. I am SO GLAD because I LOVE IT!! My husband installed it today (which was simple). It works and is absolutely stunning over our big round craftsman-style kitchen table. The shade is one that compliments my white kitchen (with Venetian bronze hardware and faucet, and gray and black accents) but I can see how it could pull brown (more of a taupe brown) too. The shade is very multi-dimensional....has black, taupe, gray, and a ever-so-slightly metallic touch to it. The actual drum is very large and dramatic and the knob-y rod that it hangs from has just enough detail to be perfect. I call it simple elegance. Very unique yet not trendy or extravagant. LOVE.
The fabric is a taupe like brown but works well with gray tones. The bottom piece is plastic like a plexiglass which cheapens the look. The other issue is the plexiglass doesn't stay level so looking at is you see the underside is crooked. To solve that issue I got some small U hooks from Home Depot is dk brown and pushed them into the edge of the fabric so now the base is even. It was annoying until I figured out a solution.
The drum shade and diffuser is dramatic and looks great in my bedroom but the chain and wires that run through look a bit sloppy. The material is not high quality but you get what you pay for. The shade appeared huge when I opened the box but the large size works and the bedroom looks more impressive with this light.
