This glistening chandelier is completely unique and does more than illuminate a living space or room. This chandelier makes a decor statement with its five-light design and black outline. The shades of the lights are made with frosted glass....more
We originally had purchased a standard 3 light fixture from popular high-volume hardware store, but it just had no presence. I found this one and loved the look as well as the price. (If you go to a standard 'lighting section' you won't get anything nearly this intricate or attractive in the price range). It's very beautiful in person as well, and my husband had a fairly easy time putting it together. The only thing I want to note is that it's definitely not a fixture that just blends in. It's classy and would probably compliment any decor, but it will make itself a focal point. Almost like a contemporary craftsman type style. This was what we wanted, but figured it was worth pointing out. Overall we're very pleased!
Great value - was easy to assemble and the finished result looks great! We have an older home with lower ceilings, so we ended up completely removing the chain. I think it looks better without it anyway!
This chandelier is exactly as it is pictured. It is a matte black and the glass is a frosted white. It looks great once it is hung. The only reason I give the workmanship 4 stars is that the paint could potentially come off if scratched while being put together. It's not really sandblasted on, but does have that appearance. The box does come with white gloves, and I would suggest wearing them while assembling. Of course, once the fixture is hanging, there is little chance that the paint would get scratched. The assembly and installation are not difficult, but the instructions are not great-more pictures than words. If you are not someone with electrical experience or you have not done much home improvement work, you may need some assistance. Overall, I think it is a great value. I looked at several home improvement stores and could not find anything that looked as nice for anything near the price I paid on Overstock. I am very happy with the purchase.
Surprisingly enough this entire thing has to be put together by hand, which is why I suppose the price is so low, you have to assemble and screw in the metal posts as well as perform all of the wiring of each light to the main power source in the ceiling, I am quite handy so this was no big deal, but dont expect to get this thing up and running in under an hour. For some reason a couple of my frosted light covers were a different color, so when the lights are on you can clearly tell they are not the same, the frost on the glass peels off very easily, and lastly make sure you get lights that point upward, if you get multidirectional lights the glass is yellow and it casts a weird glow in the room.

I have rental homes, and now have this light in all 3 homes. I bought the other two in stores and they came in very large boxes. The framework of the light was completely assembled. Not so with this one. The box is not much larger than a shoe box - you do ALL assembly and wiring on this light. No two wires are already attached. YOU do all internal wiring of the 5 lights, then assemble it. You have to hang the light to see if your internal wiring will light all 5 lights. If not, guess what? You have to take it completely apart again to try to connect all the wires again. I have hung lots of lights in my time, and I was lucky that all 5 lights worked. It took me ALL DAY to hang this light. The light looks great - the price is great - but it should be if you have to spend an entire day putting it together.

Buyers need to be aware that this product takes time and patience to put together.
It is well made and a great value when compared to higher priced chandliers in the stores.
This would not be suitable for a large dining room; but, it is perfect in our small dining area. Love it.
I was looking for a balance between traditional and contemporary. I have been living without a chandelier for several months. When I found this one, I knew that's what I wanted. I really like the martini glass shape of the glass along with the black trim that goes well with my black furniture. It does require some assembly but with patience, it is not difficult.
Nice lamp, but had a few scratches. A black permanent marker covered them, just didn't expect it to come with scratches. Also, normal light bulbs are higher than the glass. Trying to find some bulbs that don't stick up higher than the glass.
This is a great chandelier. I put it in our front den where we have a black piano and read&black rug and it is perfect! Putting it together does take some time but it is straightforward and I had no problem. It certainly saves you some money to put it together yourself as a chandelier of this caliber can cost $50 or more in the stores.

I had trouble finding an affordable black iron chandelier for my contemporary kitchen. This chandelier fits both criteria for value and for style. It blends perfectly with the black kitchen dining chairs and the black kitchen appliances in my home. If you buy this, however, you need to plan on spending a lot of time putting it together. It comes in several different pieces and has to be put together using sketchy instructions. Hopefully, whoever hangs it will have knowledge of installing electrical fixtures as the instructions for installing are even more sketchy. Luckily, my husband knew how to install it. But, overall, it is a good value at around $*** and looks much more expensive.
