I love this chandelier. It is an attractive addition to my 12 by16 dining room. I was reluctant to purchase a chandelier without seeing it first hand, but I allowed the reviews to guide me and am happy to report that the reviews were quite accurate and reliable. Despite the very low price, the chandelier does not look cheap. It is a large and substantial fixture. It measures 35 inches in diameter, 22 inches in height with a 5 inch canopy. I agree that a dimmer should be used so as to capture the full spectrum of the chandelier's lighting capabilities--allowing for different mood experiences. The chandelier does come in several pieces, however the instructional diagram was sufficient to allow for a painless assembly. I was able to put it together in 40 minutes without help, though I deferred to a professional electrician for installation. I wholeheartedly recommend this chandelier.

This is a beautiful chandelier, but if you do not have any experience assembling chandeliers, do not purchase this as it could be a fire hazard. All the wires from the eight arms have to be connected to the main line. No wire nuts are included and nowhere in the instructions is it mentioned that you need them. I've read the reviews on how much assembly is required, but I still wasn't prepared for all that was involved. It took over five hours from beginning of assembly to final installation. However, it is a beautiful chandelier-simple lines.

Pretty remarkable for the price, and the fixture looks fantastic installed. You understand the price more, however, when you start assembling. I do these kinds of projects *a lot* and was still pretty surprised by how much was involved. Easily 3-5 hours from time you open the box, to time it's actually hung. That said, we just bought a new place and there are far more projects to complete than money to go around, and this makes a huge impact and improvement in our dining room. I'm pairing with "Edison-style" candelabra bulbs for a more industrial/modern look and it looks pretty fantastic - all for less than $$$. Can't beat it. The shades were very nice quality, too, though we are not using them. Great product, great price, just be prepared to work a little for it!

I have been considering buying this chandelier for several months and am glad I finally did. I read all the reviews beforehand and was prepared for the assembly. The chandelier arrived within a week with all the parts and pieces in the box (there were a lot of parts and pieces). I had an electrician assemble and install the chandelier and it took about 2 hours for him to do this. The instructions were minimal. The electrician said that the average homeowner would have a very hard time installing this. The fixture was larger than we anticipated when hung in the dining room (even though a few reviews cautioned about this). Despite that, I still love it! It looks more expensive than it was and the optional shades are a great touch. We have it on a dimmer switch and it totally transformed the mood in our room. Make sure you measure your space before buying since this is a large fixture. I would recommend this to a friend and would consider buying another for another room in the house.

This light looks beautiful above my dining room table. The chain that comes with it is fairly long to accomodate high ceilings, it can easily be shortened for lower ceilings. The fixture arrives in multiple pieces that need to be assembled. I ordered 5 different fixtures and this one took 3-4 times longer to assemble than the other 4 put together. Assembly was not difficult, but there are a lot of nuts and screws and its tedious and time consuming, so just factor that in.

I love this chandelier. It looks a lot like one on a major fancy retailer's website but for half the cost! It's also quite a bit bigger. At 3 feet wide, it fills up my dining room nicely but is still "airy" enough that it's doesn't look too bulky. I wanted something traditional that could fit with a cottage/farmhouse type vibe, and this is perfect--metal looks high quality, arrived perfectly packaged without any scratches. My husband is really handy, and it took him about 2.5 hours to put this together and install it. He likes doing this kind of stuff and had a good time--said it was like doing a puzzle as another reviewer has already mentioned. People have also mentioned getting a dimmer, but I think the full lights are just fine. We are not using the shades, but they are lovely as well. They have a creamy color. One of my favorite Overstock purchases!
Spent an hour putting the thing together, and putting it up. Once we turned the switch it blew the breakers for the whole room. When we took it down, it all worked again. Double and triple checked the wiring and couldn't find anything wrong. Will be returning.
This chandelier looks more expensive than it cost. Everyone is shocked to find out what we paid. I just love it. Took a while for my electrician to put together, but the end result was worth it. Just need patience.
The total width is 36 inches, and I would say it is more like 24 inches from the bottom of an arm on the chandelier to the bottom of the chain. The chain length is I believe an additional 5 feet. You can adjust it though, based on how tall your ceilings are.katyrob on Feb 26, 2014
And I was confused--it is round... 36" in diameter.katyrob on Feb 26, 2014
We are looking to hang this in our 2-story entry.
How long is the wire with this light fixture and can the wire be switched out easily with a longer wire when it is being hardwired?
Also, is there a place on the fixture for the 40 in chain to be switched out with a 72 in chain securely?emmalina34 on Jul 26, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us emmalina34. The wire with this light fixture is 55 inches, it can be switched out easily with a longer wire when it is being hardwired. There is a chain buckle on the fixture for the 40 inches chain to be switched out with a 72 inches chain securely. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 3, 2013
