This chandelier is so beautiful! I ordered it for my kitchen over my table and WOW... it transformed my kitchen from beautiful to BEAUTIFUL! I'm serious when I say, I think changing out my old light fixture to this one added value to my home!
I like this light, however the shade does not cover the bulbs which creates quite a glare. If the shade was about two-three inches wider it would be great. I have it over my dining room table and will see if I can find a new shade that will fit this product.
Chandelier is good overall. I wish the shade was a little longer so it covered the light bulbs completely (like in the picture). It's a little shallow so I can see the base of the light bulbs. Not a deal breaker though - it looks nice hanging over our kitchen table.
After a very long search, this pendant chandelier caught my eye and the price was terrific, so I took a chance and bought 3 for our new (large) island. We just had them installed on a dimmer, and they are GORGEOUS. The rustic aged copper chandelier combined with the surrounding lampshade make such a good mix. I would think this light would be as pretty over a table, or in a set of two or just one over a smaller island. For the look I was going for, I was expecting to pay 3X the cost of the light, so I am very pleased. They arrived well packaged in separate boxes, and shipped quite fast. The shade provides a mellow glow to the room on the dimmer, but when turned up, provides good lighting. You can use 40w for each bulb or do 20w like I did...I'm sure either way would be nice.
I still like the chandelier despite everything but the description and photo misrepresent it. The quality is fine for me. But I suspect the employees of overstock.com write a lot of the reviews. I saw only one review that complained about the copper match and my other concerns. The shade is definitely not light-offwhite as it appears; it is dark beige. Light will clearly radiate down not out much. The "copper" is not copper at all, the reason I liked it, it's dark as in almost black. Then the lights are such small fixtures, they're the size of the little lights we used to put in the windows at Christmas? Plus the box came obviously all ripped apart by someone else, all the supports and styrofoam in pieces, and returned, then sent to me. The lamp was undamaged in spite of it.

I purchased 2 of the Antique Copper Chandeliers: one for the family room ad one for the kitchen. I was disappointed with the kitchen light because it had several missing pieces. I had to install the light sans missing parts because I had already removed the original light. The chandelier is very light weight. I expected something a tad more substantial in weight. The plus for this light is its brightness. It is attractive, and the missing pieces have not been noticed by friends and family, but in the future be sure to do a thorough inspection of Overstock's chandeliers before removing your other light.

Perfect size for above kitchen table. Shade however was taller on one side than the other. Not extremely noticeable, but I notice it. Not much I can do about it since it's manufactured in China. Trying to get replacement shade would probably be near impossible. Just going to live with it and hope nobody really studies it.
