Purchased this for daughter and her husband. Very well made. Only complaint would be that the chain was not long enough to hang it the proper distance above the table. Does NOT need 60 watt bulbs due to the number of lights. They were verb happy with the gift.
This light fixture is perfect. We had looked for the perfect one & prices were nuts! Found this one, perfect price, went up easy. the previous comments about the shades being " cock-eyed" wasn't a problem. Get lots of compliments, looks perfect over our dining table.
I have a formal dining room that I wanted to make warmer. This chandelier is great! The metal appears more black than bronze, but it has a good look. My table seats 14, so I wanted something linear more than round. I love the look. Makes me feel like I'm on the East coast!
The light is the perfect fit for over our dining room table. We have a large room with the great room, dining area and kitchen. It looks great and complements my lights over the kitchen island. It is well made and took about an hour to install. So glad I decided to go for it.
This light fixture looks exactly like the picture- well made and quite stunning in my house. I have 9' ceilings so used a couple of the links. I also had an electrician install it. The electrician said in all of his 38 years in the business that this was the most stunning fixture for the space that he has ever installed, and the price is great!
Installing this piece is not for the novice. The instructions are terrible. As a matter of fact, they consist of phrases that don't even relate to one another. We tossed them and had to rely on past wiring experiences to proceed. Fortunately, all of the required pieces were included. A couple of the light shafts were crooked but easily guided back in to line. Be careful when doing this so you don't snap off the holder!. We had trouble leveling the light once it was wired in to place but finally figured out that it is imperative that the rods all connect in the same hook direction. Also be careful not to hang the rod that contains the hidden, wrapped wiring by the wire itself. Turns out that little mistake (which we had not noticed) was most of our leveling problem. All that said once we completed the installation we love it! It has a very high quality appearance and has updated our dining room. I love that the material it is made out of is a finished bronze that isn't quite black and isn't quite brown and goes well with the other lamps that are brass in the adjoining living room. Our shades are well trimmed with no frayed edges which another reviewer had trouble with. Be sure to snap the shade in place and not just rest it on the light shaft. If they are snapped into place, they are all lined up and straight. It takes a little pressure to snap them far enough down. All in all I would have given this 5 stars if it had been easier to install because the overall appearance is definitely 5 stars!
