This is a great, simple, modern fixture and my husband was able to install it in a short amount of time. The shade itself is white, but does appear off-white light is on. Not an issue for us. My only complaint would be that it has a rather thick seam, which can be a problem for an open floor plan. I wish I could upload a picture, as it really looks beautiful. Shipping was fast, too.
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'm really happy with this lovely drum chandelier! I searched far & wide online for an update to a tiffany-style light over my round kitchen table. This is just what I was looking for - and at a great price! It arrived promptly within the delivery time given and was a fairly easy install. The fabric shade and diffuser are of nice quality. It looks terrific and wow, it makes quite a statement. I wanted a true white shade and hesitated ordering after reading some reviews about it not being so. It is a white shade but when first turned on, the light glowed an off-white - not what I wanted. I solved that by switching to "daylight bulbs" and it looks perfect - so much whiter & brighter. Overall, a really great purchase!!
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!
