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 ordered this light and they sent the wrong one. A totally different color and style. They reordered the same light and guess what ....... they sent the same wrong light. Obviously the one pictured is not the one with the item # that they send. Customer service was very nice though and is refunding my money.
Do not buy it based on the website picture. After receiving, I noticed the color is very different, dark and ugly. At firt I thought if assembled and lighted, would looks better. However, after finishing the assembly and intallation, I regret my purchase. This is the first time I buy something from overstock which is different from the website information. I think customer service should take care of these issues!!! DO NOT BUY IT BASED ON THE WEB IMAGES>>>>>DECEPTIVE!
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 is a huge disappointment: 1. The tulip glass holes don't rest on the base. The hole is too small. 2. The inside of the glass is covered in sand, which is impossible to clean. 3. The colors do not match at all. It is a dark green and burgundy, with none of the detailing in the picture. I had actually wanted fuschia and bright green to match a tropical theme. 4. If you were to bump the leaves, the metal is so thin, they would break off. 5. There were no instructions included. 6. The glass does not have the colors pictured, and the workmanship is very poor. The petals fold over on each other. 7. The shape of the flowers doesn't match the picture. Don't buy this!
This fixture has a beautiful and not-so-ordinary appearance. It is not too feminine and fits perfectly in my guest bedroom. It would look lovely in a kitchen, breakfast room, dining room, or bathroom. It has an expensive and substantial appearance. The coloring of the shades is a creamy frost texture and the fixture is matte mossy green with mustard golden tips on the leaves. The only white is in the stems of the purple flowers. I painted some purple accents, and added some purple, green, and clear crystal garland for more highlights--overkill perhaps, but suits my taste. This fixture would blend well with many types of decor. It is important to note that the shades are not white or clear in color. The mostly green arms/stems should not be a deterrent to purchasing this unique fixture, since a simple brush of paint can make it any color or add different color accents. I had to consult customer service because my contractor accidentally discarded the custom shades. Email customer service was excellent in assisting me to purchase replacement shades. Fortunately, my contractor found the glass shades at the dump, buried in trash but undamaged thanks to Overstock.com great packaging!

This chandelier is beautiful. I fell in love when I saw the picture of this and thought it would be perfect in my county style dining room. I read the reviews and warned my husband about what others said. He said to go ahead and order it. He cursed and sweated took it apart and started over at least once....and it is beautiful! Instructions were cryptic in some places. It took all Sunday afternoon to install and then we ran to the hardware store to pick up bulbs before they closed so we could see the finished design. Lots of light, perfect in my dining room! One of the flowers petal rings was lose so I added a bit of glue to hold it in place.
