I wanted to buy this light to place in my hallway, however it is nothing like the picture in size it is like a big bird cage, I was not sure I could use it. I did place it in my kitchen it was perfect over my counter in the middle of the room it is beautiful. You will have to add the crystals.
I LOVE these lights. They are GORGEOUS! Like other reviewers mentioned, you do have to put the crystals on the lamp. It is very easy to do and each strand is assembled. It maybe took 15 minutes to do. We had recessed lighting and bought a conversion kit to be able to use these pendants. It changed the look of the room instantly. I am so happy with these lights.
This was perfect for the look I was going for. I needed it to be be black so I painted it. Looks great. The "crystals" look nice enough. Took a little messing around to make everything look level. Happy that I bought this. Many people have asked me where I got it. I had to show my neighbor the site bc he didn't believe me that it was an Overstock find. He wants one too now.
I bought two of these to go over a 10 seat dining table. I couldn't be more pleased with them. They came with a variety of lengths of rods so I could set the height just perfectly. The diffraction of light on the ceiling is gorgeous. Our carpenter was very pleased with how light they were and how well made. Hanging the crystal strands was easy--just like hanging earrings--though it took a little while, and I had to do it twice for two chandeliers! (But really, they couldn't have been shipped any other way.) I have received rave reviews about them from visitors.
Beautiful light fixture was delivered promptly and was well packaged. The color of the fixture is a dark brown with a gold/bronze paint spatter which to me is very attractive. My boyfriend put it together and although it was tedious, all the crystals hung equally in length contrary to some reviews here. The install was easy and I love the little bit of glamour it adds to my dining area. Just beautiful when lit, the pictures don't do it justice. I would highly recommend this to someone looking for something a little different in their home decor.
Pay attention to the measurements because looking at the picture it almost looks like a little candlelight tear drop fixture. No, this thing is huge. Perfect above a large table. My dining room table is about 5 feet by 5feet square and wow, this was perfect above it. It has an organic feel with the touch of sparkle. Perfect for both me and my husbands style. I recommend to remove the last crystal on each strand to make them even to the rim. They stick out slightly being longer which to me looked strange. Once I adjusted it made such a great difference and looks so pretty. If you chose to do this, I recommend doing it before you hang each strand which to me was a little annoying and tedious but well worth it.
I bought 2 of these for my kitchen island which is rectangular (51in Wx 96in L). They fit perfectly for this size. Extremely elegant and beautiful. All the items inside were carefully wrapped, nothing broke. The material of the crystal inside is acrylic; although when I hold them, they felt very light, when you actually hang them, they look so much better. Definitely add a Wow factor to any kitchen, absolutely stunning! About installation: my electrician hang the light fixtures for me, but I did the crystal assembling myself, very easy, just a little time consuming. (About 45 minutes for both of them)
I hung this fixture in my master bathroom with 11ft ceilings over my soaking tub. It is "different" and brings out a more elegant "rustic" look I was going for. While I haven't done it yet, I think I am going to take away every other strand of crystal (not plastic like some reviews have said) to bring out more metal from cage. One of the sockets was funky. Hard to get bulb to thread into...not sure if it will hold up for the long haul but for the price can't beat it. This is not great quality but is definitely unique.
This looks great hung, up close, you will see the copper color with painted "gold flecks". Mine had a splotch of green (overstock switched the basket out for me). During the installation, one of the screws was stripped...had to get them to send a whole 2nd unit because they contacted the manufacture (in China) and the manufacturer sent the completely wrong part - after O and I outlined exactly what we needed, waste of time. The lights hang a bit cockeyed to the basket, and that affects the straightness of the glass dangle beads. This is mostly noticable if you look up from beneath it, the circle of beads is pretty far off from the basket circle opening at the bottom. Oh well! I had credit, and O points, otherwise the $XXX is too much to spend...
Love my new light fixture. It really does sparkle. Had to hang the crystal which is easy but takes some time. Difficult to get crystals to hang even but still looks good.Loved it so much I purchased a similar one for my entrance. Would definitely recommend to others. Order came within a few days, price was good. Color is not copper , it's more bronze, dark brown with gold highlights.
Overall, this is a great light with the perfect traditional elegance look. Im ordering a 3rd light for over our dinette table because they are so nice looking. The only difficulty we had was hanging it flush with the ceiling required us to take a trip to *** and get a shorter bolt.
