This is a gorgeous piece, it shows just like in the picture. However, upon arrival the screen is detached from the base and is nearly impossible to install. I had to drill four holes in the ceiling to mount the screen. There were no instructions in the box whatsoever, making it impossible to inventory the pieces. So after mounting the screen with zip ties, then screws, then toggle, and finally anchors to the ceiling. (and let's not forget I dropped this damn screen twice on my head) Now it was time to unwrap and mount the crystals and chains, here comes the latest surprise, extra chains!!!! No, no extra anything, I counted the hooks and the chains matched in quantity. 12 long chains, 6 short chains, and 1 extra long chain. Then I counted the end pieces to the chains. 1 crystal ball, 6 crystal arrow heads, and 6 tear drop crystals. The kit was missing 6 end pieces...(crystal arrows or tear drops.) After all the hard work to mount the screen (2-3 frustrating hours)...I wasn't going to disassemble this thing to return it...today is Xmas so the cust.svc dept. is closed but trust me they will hear from me tomorrow.
I was on the fence about this chandy because of the patterned applique. When it arrived, I wasn't really happy with the look of the pattern (a little too cheap looking). I suppose it would be less noticeable from a distance, though. Besides being extremely large for the room I'm putting it in, I didn't care for the pleated feature on the bottom at all. The material looks very flimsy and low budget. It looks very similar to a polyethylene foam packing sheet. Unfortunately, its gotta go back.
This light is absolutely beautiful. It wasn’t very hard to add the baubles. It only took a few minutes to do. I had an electrician install it. As far as I know he didn’t have any trouble with it. I have it on a dimmer. It’s beautiful at all light levels. I wouldn’t hesitate to order this light again. I can’t tell you how beautiful this light is!
Chandelier is beautiful once installed, but installation instructions were very limited. The instructions said 4 light bulbs, actually takes 5. Hard to line up chandelier to mounting bracket. The crystals needed some work/ adjustment - some strands were too long and needed to be shortened. Did not have enough of the small crystal strands, but it looks full and pretty without them. Total install time 2-3 hours - too long for an overhead light fixture, and very frustrating - especially for a usually very patient husband!
