This gorgeous flush-mount chandelier will give your dining room, kitchen, or entryway an elegant look. It has four lights, 36 clear crystals, and a chrome finish. The chandelier requires four 25- to 40-watt bulbs, which are sold separately....more
A+ For the "Big O" F for the product. I purchased this fixture for a small hall, I was hoping the chain was removable as it looks strange bit it is not. My main reason for the F is because of the quality of crystals, very poor. I honestly expected more but something I've learned is crystal with "lead" in it sparkles much more then whatever I was sent. Once assembled the fixture looks like extra/spare parts were used to put it together, the photos show a nice sparkly fixture. In person it just doesn't look right. Overall a lesson learned go with your gut because my husband said no and I said yes. Next time I will purchase with two yes's in the equation.
In May 2010, we installed one of these in our Chicago condo on Lake Shore Drive. Not a party goes by without several of our guests asking where we got this particular fixture. Our ceilings are low and it was very hard to find something that looked fun, but fit the space. I look at this fixture often and know that I would purchase it again if I were decorating again. I was willing to spend three times as much for this room's fixture and can't believe how lucky we were to find this awesome accent light at such a steal.
I don't mean to confuse, but I am conflicted about this light. I love, love, love it. It is gorgeous and casts the most beautiful patterns on the ceiling and walls. The negative part of my review is about the assembly. I believe there are 36 one and one-half inch crystal balls hanging from this light. I was expected to hang these fairly heavy real crystals with a one half inch piece of wire. I was half way through assembly when the crystal balls started dropping off in my lap. I would not even consider hanging this light in that fashion, as I believe someone would probably get knocked in the head with a falling crystal ball eventually. I couldn't bear to part with this beauty either, so out I went in search of a fastener that would safely set my mind at ease. What I came up with was a lightweight key ring that will hold each crystal up beautifully and safely. If you have a craft store nearby check out the jewelry making section and find some fastener that will "lock" in each crystal ball if you really love, love, love this light like I do and have to have it! I also purchased the matching dining room light, I had to stock up on key rings at my local craft store...
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? accurate color comparison
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of the product is excellent, however, the half inch metal included is totally inadequate for assembly.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Meh...
At first look, this is a good design, made from above average materials.
The caveat is it requires G9 bulbs. In this era of energy savings and conservation, this is outrageous and plain ridiculous. Needless to say, it is not specified on the product sheet; actually there is no mention of G9 - until you open the box. On top of everything, the bulbs are not even included in the package.
Overall, buy it only if you absolutely have to have it.
The wires on the crystals are pretty thin and weak, and also too short. If you were really worried about them, you could use thin plastic coated cable to tie on the crystals, or use silver colored twist ties.
After I got it installed, I haven't worried about the crystals falling off. It's beautiful!
I installed a new light switch which has a dimmer lever snuggled next to the on/off switch. I put in 60 watt bulbs, so at full brightness, this thing consumes 240 watts! It's great for trying to find something, but most of the time I have the dimmer set at 50% or less. Makes a beautiful mood light when set very low.
When set low, it consumes a modest amount of electricity, but doesn't put off that nasty green light you get from compact fluorescents.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Nice
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
I purchased one of these Chandeliers to put in the area of hallway between my guest rooms, outside of the bathroom. It had a builders grade light. I couldn't be more pleased. It is elegant and gives just the right amount of bling without overdoing it. I liked it so well I ordered two more for my hallway which also had two builders grade lights. I have had many positive comments, my husband put them up and loves them as well. These are priced very well and the quality is excellent. They even send an extra crystal and yes these are glass not plastic.
As this fixture sits close to the ceiling and has (30) golfball size crystal balls, be aware that in conjunction with the 4 halogen bulbs (that are very bright,) the crystals will throw rainbow prisims all over the walls and ceiling on light paint.
I installed this fixture in a small bathroom as part of a full home renovation project. I intentionally painted the walls in a nearly flat, dark eggplant paint color, knowing the beautiful effect it would create using this fixture. Rather than primary (rainbow) color prisms, we achieved a broad jewel toned metallic effect, cast across the top of the walls rather than tight traditional crystal prisms, that was nothing less than impressive in a small powder room that was loved by both men and women realtors.
I will defiantly use this style fixture again if presented the opportunity. It lends balance to bold or modern room designs with a touch of soft, feminine energy. It would also be very sweet in a little girls room on a dimmer, compatible with halogen bulbs.
This elegant little fixture is weighty. I would make sure a well-installed or reinforced ceiling box is present as a precaution.
Hint: when installing the frame and hanging the crystals, wear some thin, clean white cotton gloves. It will save you time and stress trying to clean fingerprints off the shiny chrome rails and crystals after its on the ceiling.
THe reviews are all right on this one...it's amazing. I bought 4, as I am rennovating my house. They are a nice touch of modern meets classic and cast an absolutely gorgeous light. The bulbs are specialty and are hard to find and very expensive. However, they are so beautiful I don't care. Really make my bedrooms look elegant. If you are thinking of buying these, do it fast. They rock!
