Oh goodness, given the time and energy I put into researching and choosing my lights, you'd think I'd have better luck. I thought I'd done my due diligence with this one, but was disappointed. Truth be told, I noticed but chose to overlook the reviews and Q&As which ask about color. The are very contradictory. Some say the shade is white, some say it's off white. It's hard to know if the shades were actually different colors in different shipments, or if people considered the shade as off white when lit. My shade appeared white when unlit, but turned golden when lit. The black cord seemed a bit bland, too. It's definitely minimalist, which is fine for a clean contemporary look. From a quality standpoint, the light seemed adequate. I ended up sending it back, though, because of the shade color. If color is important to you, read all the reviews to be well informed before ordering. Overstock was very accommodating with the return, which I appreciated.
I've looked for a drum pendant light for above my dining room table for a while now. Most of the lights I found were $$$+ and many of the ones I found for less were only meant for one or two light bulbs. This light has room for four light bulbs so it does light the room very well. The shade is pure white, but does have a bit of a warmer glow because the light is shining through a fabric shade. The light was easy to install and looks great in my dining room. Great quality for the price.
I purchased this fixture for a second home, and it's fairly lightweight, and a little cheaply made. I am using it in the dining room, and it does have a nice look to it, but it's not a purchase I would repeat. The shade is made of a fabric type material, and the diffuser is a nice touch, however, the diffuser does allow light to leak out around the perimeter. The installation was easy once we figured out the instructions, which were not well written.
Received the chandelier last week, but we just installed it today. I was able to put it together fairly quickly. The brown paper on the one side of the diffuser is easy to take off if you pull all the edges toward the middle of the diffuser. Take your time going around the diffuser and pulling the paper back a little bit at a time as you go around the whole piece. Keep going around and pulling it back a bit at a time until it gets to the middle and all the edges are bunched up together. It will come off in one piece if you do it right. The plastic on the opposite side of the diffuser came off even more easily. We installed it over my round dining room table. It looks WONDERFUL. It looks like a very expensive light when in reality it isn't. If you're looking at it, get it. You can't go wrong. The two male workers at my house loved the light. I saw someone selling this light on E-Bay for a bit more. I was wondering if they got it here and marked it up...lol It pays to shop around!!!
I had been looking for a large drum pendant for over our kitchen table. This fixture is exactly what I wanted! The first one came with the shade dented and pieces missing, but I did an online chat with Overstock's customer service. Another fixture was sent out within days. It could not have been an easier process! Overstock is great!
Half the price of the fixture I wanted, but looks great in place. The shade is not top quality but you wouldn't know unless you were looking up close. Nice update to our kitchen eating area and was a fairly simple install.

I bought this light for our recently remodeled kitchen breakfast nook. I spent weeks scouring every local store that offered lighting and either couldn't find what I had in mind or found what I liked but the price was outrageous. I then turned to the internet and Overstock and this fit the bill perfectly. By the time I made my decision to purchase this they were out of stock so OS prompted me to put in my email addresst and they would email me when they got them back in stock. NOT! I got tired of waiting for them to email me and started looking on other websites for something similar when I decided to recheck OS just in case. They were in stock and OS never did email me so if they are out of stock for you check the website every couple of days, don't rely on OS to notify you. I put this up w/o my husband because I was impatient. The only problem I had was that the screws that secured the cover to the ceiling were a bit too long so it hung down from the ceiling about 1/4 " instead of sitting up flush to it. I was tired of dealing with it at that point and left it for my hubby to resolve later. He still hasn't got to it but it's not very noticeable, if you didn't know to look for it you'd never notice it.

I really like the light. It looks great in my kitchen. I had to get different bulbs to help the shade look white and not yellow.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The shade appears to be slightly more yellow than pictured.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality. Must be careful with the shade as it shows dents.
