This lamp looks nice in the picture, though it looks a little cheap in real life. What some people might not realize is that it comes with a diffuser for the bottom. The diffuser is located at the bottom of the box, below the foam, so it's easy to miss. I almost threw it away. I found it when I went to break the box down. I was so excited to find the diffuser because, like others have said, it's a little harsh seeing the lights from below the lamp and lets face it, you are going to be below this kind of lamp often. Unfortunately, the defuser isn't all that great once you get it put on, it doesn't match the coloring of the rest of the lamp and it makes the lamp look really cheap, you are actually much better off without the defuser, it's that cheap looking. The lamp is difficult to put together and a bit confusing, with the directions seeming slightly off at times... parts not fitting where they should in the pictures etc. For the price I guess this lamp isn't bad, I was just expecting something a lot better with all the great reviews.
Shipping was fast and chandelier arrived well packaged and in good condition. However, there were no instructions. Logic took over and it was very easy to assemble. Quality is rated average as the threads to the main riser did not match well to the cover plate. Some manipulation with a cloth and wrenches did the trick. Frame is a little soft and can be easily bent as indicated in other reviews. Overall, chandelier looks great in my mid-century dining room. Just enough bling to brighten the space.
This light fixture is average. It looks nice from far but when you are underneath it, you can see ALL the wiring ====A HUGE FAUX PAS. If I had known this before I wouldn't have purchased it. I am disappointed look elsewhere for a better fixture.
This is the perfect size for my guest bedroom. The main reason it works so well is that it is a flush mounted light fixture so it doesn't take up any room or get in the way for tall people. It has just the right amount of feminine style without being frilly...love it!
Looks beautiful in my dining room. Its the perfect touch of chandelier without going over the top for an apt. I still haven't put the light diffuser part on. I may try it but it doesnt bother me seeing the light bulbs. From my living room the light looks exactly like the picture. My friend is an electrician and put it up rather quickly. I think I could've done it myself as well. It just requires having an assistant to hold it up while placing the screws and washers.
I bought this light and (mistakenly) left it in the box till I was ready to put it up. Once I put it together I realized it was missing a part. The light itself is very pretty and if it had all of the pieces it would be very nice. My poor review is not for the look of the piece but due to the fact that everything wasn't in the box.
