I love this light. It gives off lots of light and is very pretty. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of color. I thought it would be oil rubbed bronze but it is mostly silver with some bronze. I was lucky that this worked fine in my room.
As you might expect for the price, it wasn't the highest quality chandelier. We bought our first home and have been renovating for a couple months (heavy reno before move-in, light reno after move-in), so I probably would have returned it if we weren't so tired and ready to be finished. If this were our "forever home" instead of our first home, I wouldn't have installed this chandelier. Appearance: I'm going to echo some previous commenters. -"The color description online would not be my word choice. This fixture has an 'antiqued' bronze LOOK, mostly black brush strokes (visible up close) over a dull brass color. Looks more of a dark brownish color from a distance." Overall I do like the color. -Someone else also mentioned that the globes are brighter white than they appear in the photo, which is true. Ours weren't drastically brighter, though, so they still work with the antique design. -The photo also leads you to believe there is slight marbling to the glass, but they are frosted solid white (I will note that the description doesn't mention marbling, but I was still holding out hope that it would look more like the photo since the marbling would make it look classier). Quality: -It is sturdy, but not too heavy -Two of our globes sit crooked (the actual connection of the globe base is soldered crooked on the metal "arm" underneath); one is at a slight angle, but the other was incredibly noticeable so we decided to bend it more into the proper place (we weren't able to bend it totally straight for fear of breaking it) Parts: -Positive: All of the glass globes arrived intact -Negative (and this one was a doozy): The cross-bar to actually attach the chandelier to the junction box in the ceiling was not included as it was supposed to be. We didn't realize this until the handyman came to install it, unfortunately, because the instructions say "Please note: The parts in this table are completely unassembled, for illustrative purpose. In the actual product that you receive, some parts are assembled and attached together." Because of this, the chart was pretty much useless because I couldn't tell what was supposed to come separately and what was already pre-assembled (and I have no experience hanging chandeliers, so I was unaware of the parts needed). Thankfully we have a killer handyman who was very creative and had an extra crossbar in his truck that he was able to retrofit to the junction box and canopy. Overall: It's fine for classing up a starter home, but I wouldn't recommend it for a long-term home where you really want to take pride in all of the details. For something as permanent as a chandelier, pay the extra money to get a mid-line or top-line item. With that said, I do love the design, but would have gladly paid more to get the same chandelier at a higher quality. In the end, I feel like the best analogy is comparing this chandelier to a Carl's Jr commercial: The burger you see on TV always looks way more appetizing than what you pull out of the bag, but in the end, if you're just looking for something to get the job done and that tastes decent, it'll do.
The fixture is fine from a distance, had to tweak it to get the arms to stay level. I wasn't too pleased with the overall quality. The screws are very visible that hold the five arms to the middle spindle. They should have either been black screws or provided some type of cap to cover them. But it was a replacement light so I could take my own with me to my new home. If it was my personal chandelier, I would be returning it.
