10 STARS, really! I say it when I am unhappy about something-- just click on my other reviews-- but this little darling is a WINNER tip-to-toe! Most delightful is the surprise shadow of itself it casts on the entire bedroom wall, with little prismatic spectral reflections of the crystal on the walls of my bedroom. How much do I love it? I have not yet hung anything on the walls of this newly redone room and may not, EVER! The shadows of the leaf and flower structure, and the scattering of light where the crystals are reflected are just SO lovely that I may leave the walls bare to enjoy the effect! It's a Wonderland!!!!!
This chandelier is so pretty. The color is darker than it appears on line. The green is a deep olive and the flowers are a dark burgundy. A word to the wise.... when you are assembling the arms, do not tighten the nuts all the way.Only hand tighten them. You will need to be able to move them when you put the glass shades on, after it is hung. If you don't do this it will not balance and hang properly. The chain is really long so I shortened it and swagged it. I'm really -pleased with it. It's unique and really beautiful.
The lamp received was a dark brown colored brass with equally dark colored flowers and leaves...not light and bright looking as pictured. We did not install, as it was nothing like we expected. So I called customer service and requested a return address. Upon being received, I was credited with the full-amount of purchase. Although I was not pleased with the lamp, I was pleased with how Overstock handled crediting me for the return. - Carol T.
I was looking for something to brighten up my dining room, this looked perfect. In fact it is all dreary military green on the bottom. The leaves barely have any gold and it looks weathered. The flowers on top are a dark purple and do not pop at all. I am going to paint it myself bc I love the style so much. The bottom piece is also not painted as shown in the pic just the same drap green. I was very disappointed but hoping I can turn it around. But do not buy if you expect the picture you will have to do some work yourself. Two of the glass pieces were broken and overstock did a great job of getting replacements out to me. It was easy to install.
The chandelier is lovely, but difficult to put together. The instructions are printed poorly and hard to read. I like the aged look of the green leaves, but repainted the purple flowers. I think it looks great in the bathroom, but had to have an electrician finish putting it together and installing it.
I would recommend this, but I will say the metal leaves a very thin, Mine were ready to break when it got here. I can only hope they stay as they are for at least a few years. It is a pretty light. It was perfect for the theme in my kitchen. I will be adding paint to brighten it up, as it is mostly green.
Most of this has already been said. The colors are dull OLIVE green and dull BURGUNDY. I am off to find some acrylic paint and see if I can spruce this up. I thought that the color was one of the more charming aspects. Do not expect it to be accurate at all. It would help to have miniature fingers when assembling. I made a start and will have my electrician friend help me finish. The directions I received must have been at the end of the toner use. Some were entirely illegible and I am using a magnifying glass to see the others. All in all, the assembly seems intuitive so I did not experience assembly hell as others have described. Of course, I am not done! When all is finished, this should look fine but it sure is not giving me a "rush" of appreciation, like the picture does. AND now it is ON SALE so I get to feel just a little ripped off. If you love the overall shape and size, buy it. Just be prepared to receive something that seems to be a sad cousin of the lovely photo.
Previous reviews have stated difficulty in getting the chandelier level after installation. I had absolutely no problem at all. The ratchet tool included with the chandelier is useless however - I used a ratchet tool I have and everything went together in a snap. A truly beautiful piece of art.
This light is so sweet and whimsical, I just love it. Be careful, though, with the glass part..... there are sharp edges inside that could scratch or cut when changing light bulbs.
