Loved this chandelier, "PB" style, until I opened the box. It's not well made. Very noticeable ding in hanging plate & it was not welded properly. Not the usual quality consistent with Overstock. But as usual Overstock made it work by sending a return label and taking care of everything.
I bought this light because it was exactly the look I wanted and definitely the right price point, After spending weeks debating about other lights that were very expensive and not exactly what I wanted I came back to this. I knew we would have to do some manipulation as we only have 8' ceilings and this would hang too low since it does not have a flush mount option. The instructions that come with this light are useless. They tell you absolutely nothing and probably confuse more than they help. The light is made of cheep painted metal (you get what you pay for). Some of the fixtures came bent and the more you handle it the more wear you will see before you even hang it. We first hung it without manipulating it to see what height we could get it at. The closest to the ceiling with only one chain link would be 6" (overall of 42" from ceiling). This is far too low for an 8' ceiling. Figuring out how to make this a flush mount fixture took a bit of thought (including drilling a hole in my new light fixture), trial and error, and time. Now that it is done it looks absolutely gorgeous and I couldn't be happier. Definitely looks like a much higher grade light and I keep getting lots of compliments by everyone that comes by. My husband may not agree...he says the next light we buy for the house I can spend the money on. Overall I guess I would recommend this light...to anyone who has 9' ceilings or higher!!
This chandelier is very impressive and adds character to our home. The quality of the product is excellent. We did hire an electrician to install it but that was only because our initial wiring in the wall was not correct. Otherwise we could have installed this light ourselves. Overstock was quick with delivery and everything was in the box that was needed to install the light. Highly recommend this product.
My bro-in-law assembled for me with no issue. He needed some assistance hanging and it still needs slight nudges to get the chandelier exactly in line/straight. Otherwise, it's a great value for the price and very reminiscent of a XX type item. Quality is fine. I am overall pleased so far.
I was very hesitant to buy this because other reviewers said it was a nightmare to install, but my electrician said it was not too difficult. The styling of this fixture is really unique and it looks great over my dining table. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the square plate at the top of the fixture (the one where all the bars come together, not the one that attaches to the ceiling) does not sit perfectly parallel with the ceiling. However, it is not too noticeable, and does not take away from the overall appearance of the light. Other reviewers had mentioned that it did not hang correctly over their table and tended to turn the other direction. Mine has stayed perfectly aligned over the table except for one time when I bumped my head on it! I love that light is a bit different than your traditional chandeliers. I have received a lot of compliments on it, and the value for the money is good.
Fixture is VERY nice. Looks great with my décor. Works great over my 98 inch long table. Others stated the item wouldn't square up - this happened to me too. My handyman simply went to the "hooks" on the lower metal plate & slightly rotated them, as well as the one hook at the ceiling plate. Didn't take but a minute to make those adjustments & it sat evenly!
I looked high and low for a nice but not too fancy rectangular chandelier large enough for a dining table that extends to seat 12. Couldn't find anything better than this at any price! The actual one I received was slightly different design as the base of each light there is a brass accent, and the stems for the lights are smooth round, not square with ridges. It is nicer than what is displayed. While the linen lamp shades are nice, they cast an opaque light downward and look yellowish when lit. I purchased mercury glass lamp shades from a popular chain home furnishings store instead, which really made a difference - added light and interest day and night. You won't find a 36" rectangular chandelier at this price and quality anywhere else - I already searched!
beautiful fixture, mostly dark black/bronze with a little antique brass. had our electrician install, took him a hour. Our ceilings are not hi, so had to only use 1 chain link to get the right height from the table/floor. look is still great. Good quality product.
This light has the perfect style and mass to update our two story foyer. Even looks nice from the second floor hallway and stairs. I anticipate having to dust it from an ladder or from the second floor. The shades move easily so adjusting will probably be required when I dust. Installation was straightforward for us, we were lucky to have a scaffold to stand on.
This chandelier is an excellent value for the price. It is at least half the price of a P-B lamp, but definitely has a P-B look to it! Very pleased with the quality of the item, especially for the price. I like that I can change out the shades if I want. We did not find it difficult to hang, but my husband is handy, and I helped hold it up.
