Bought the chandelier for our colonial home - looks great overall but it is a really cheap quality. It took forever for our experienced electrician to assemble and it does not stay stationary (every time it is dusted I have to take 5 min to wiggle all the pieces back to balance and get it to hang evenly again because the it is not a single unit chandelier. Very annoying - wish I bought a single chandelier instead of one with so many components that constantly need adjustment! Price was right for staging/interim use though.
When I took it out of the box, I thought it looked a little skinny and not substantial enough - a little cheap. But once it was hung, it was perfect. Not heavy or gaudy looking. I have moved since this purchase and brought it with me to the new house. 1 thing is it doesn't come with wiring to hook it from the light to the ceiling. You have to have some basic electrical knowledge to wire it up.
Purchased this fixture after much shopping! Was looking for fixtures that would fit a coastal style as we are building a lake house. What caught my eye was the iron detail that looks like rope. Had been looking at local lighting stores-their prices were double to triple what we paid at "O". It does come with alot of parts to assemble and it takes two people to complete the project but when you think of how much money you're saving, it's worth it. The only downfall with the purchase for us is that the shades are a dijon yellow and we were looking for white. For what we paid for the fixture, we still save alot of money even if we have to purchase new white shades.
This fixture comes in 100 pieces, you literally have to thread the wires through the fixture and assemble every piece. I am a very handy person and can typically take on a challenge like this. I'm not going to even try. What a waste!
We are pleased with the look of this chandelier but even my husband who is super handy spent a few hours assembling this and got frustrated. It arrives in a milllion parts, basically no directions, and you have to wire this entire unit, even down to figuring out the black and white wires, it is a challege. This is not for someone who is not experieved at assembling light fixtures or for womeone who has no knowledge of lighting. You will become too frustated and have to hire an electrician to complete. If you are expereinced, plan to spend a morning or afternoon on this project.
Still building the house so we have not hung the light yet. If it looks anything like the picture I'm sure it will be great. Item arrived as scheduled and from peaking in the box it looks like a winner! The lamp shades are a really cute shape and will add just a little flare to the room. Can't wait to see it hung!
Nice chandelier and excellent shades. Had to put the metal portion together, but it didn't take too much time. We needed a longer chain so we purchased one at Lowe's. Really good price, similar items elsewhere were at least twice the price. Thanks O!
I almost didn't order this fixture but I really liked the look and price and decided to take a chance even though others mentioned having major difficulty assembling the fixture. It looks very similar to a fixture I liked from ******* **** and cost less than half the price. I have installed quite a few fixtures in my life but have never had to assemble one myself (you usually just open the box and install the fixture). This fixture DOES come unassembled with quite a few parts but if you have ever built a piece of furniture from **** then you should have no problem assembling this chandelier. I was able to assemble and install mine in about 90 minutes total.
I will echo what most people have already said. Once this chandelier is assembled, it is really elegant. I looked for a long time, searched every lighting website for a new dining room chandelier. Most of the ones I loved were way out of my price range. What attracted me to this one was the delicate details and the fact that it had fabric shades. I have an open concept kitchen/dining room with vaulted wood ceilings. There is a mix of rustic and formal decor. I have an antiqued cream painted island with black granite top. My dining table sits adjacent to the island, and this fixture looks like it was custom designed for the space. Both my husband and I are very handy, and we spent about an hour assembling. Most of it was fairly easy to assemble. We used a small socket wrench to tighten up the small nuts that attach the the bottom piece of the arms. Most people have mentioned that "there are a lot of pieces". But there is also extensive wiring involved. Every arm needs to be wired to the main junction. If you have no basic wiring skills or knowledge, then I would strongly recommend that you do not buy this fixture. It would not be cost effective to hire an electrician to assemble it. It was worth the trouble for me and my husband, and now we will enjoy it for years.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color description was mostly accurate, but I would say the lamp shades are an antique ivory, not champagne.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality seems fine for the price.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description is failry accurate.
I'm confused about the type of bulb to use. It states a 60 watt fluorescent bulb??? I've never seen one like that.
Is this a screw-in or pop-in fluorescent bulb?
Can the fixture be wired to a dimmer switch?gal0 on Nov 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question gal0. The bulb is a screw-in fluorescent bulb and the fixture can be wired to a dimmer switch. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 4, 2013
