Love this light. I wanted the one at the hugely expensive store but it was 10x the price and well out of my budget. This one works quite well. It isn't really iron but rather painted to look like it, but that makes it lighter and cheaper than the original. I'd buy it again.
The item description doesn't really describe the finish well. The item was painted a gloss black with red speckled paint. It's not exactly rustic. However, I have high ceilings so you don't really see it. If i had a standard 8 foot ceiling it would be noticable.
I saw similar chandeliers at the local lighting stores for 3+ times the cost and they were not as nice as the Foucault's Orb from Overstock. The quality is excellent and it looks beautiful. It is also very large so consider the space where you will hang it.
Lighting is absolutely beautiful. We have it on a dimmer so it really helps change the mood of the room. We always get so many compliments about the light. Was very easy to install and put together. Also, there are left over crystals in case of any damaged ones.
Using it over our bed. Never did figure out how all the crystals are supposed to hang. Also don't love the red specks in the paint finish. I plan to use rub and buff to change the shade of the paint. Just haven't gotten around to it. Still a great buy.
Installation was easy, it even came with a fabric glove to wear while installing. The only thing is, it casts a shadow immediately under the light, so the food in the middle of the table does not get illuminated. I always have to add candles to compensate.
