Beautiful light! We put this in our bedroom over our bed and it gave the room an enchanting, romantic look. When the sunlight hits the crystals in the morning it sparkles and in the evening it glows-without being turned on. It's not real ornate and "fru-fru", just a lovely chandelier.
This is the second of this item I've purchased. The light thrown from this chandelier is so lovely, with dimmer switch, you can go all the way from candlelight to bright. I have transitional, eclectic furnishings from modern to traditional, and these fit right in. A little laborious putting all the crystals on, but not difficult, just time-consuming. I thought the end result well worth the effort! (Spraying the connecting wires with metal-worthy black paint before starting makes it MUCH easier!) :)
This chandelier looks dynamite in my kitchen. I was worried it would be too much for my white cabinet/black island kitchen but it is more funky and less formal that a traditional chandelier. Even the guys like it. I had it installed almost flush to the ceiling with maybe an inch of chain and it still looks great. Installation of the crystals is a pain but it took about 2 hours while watching TV so all in all, not that bad. Needle nose pliers are a must! Definitely get it.
I didn't realize I was going to have to put on each crystal separately but when it's done, it looks great. Get a cup of coffee and turn on your favorite show because putting those crystals on takes a while. Some of the other reviews said it was hard to install the lights - I had no problem at all.
Love the style of this chandalier! I was hugely disappointed with the quality and somewhat confused by previous reviews. The fixture we recieved had plastic and not crystal pieces. I noticed in the initial reviews that there were some mentions of broken crystals, so I assume that this was not always the case. The resulting "fix" is that the fixture looks cheap and somewhat tacky...Not at all what I was expecting from the pictures (gorgeous) or the price (reasonable if you are really getting a crystal chandalier...and way overblown if you are getting a faux crystal chandalier!) I will certainly NOT be recommending this product to anyone.
We bought this chandelier to put in our powder room but it did not feel substantial enough for the space. We opted instead, to put it in our laundry room(I love a little surprise in every room) and it looks fantastic! Everyone that walks in is taken away by it. it is so unexpected and the glow that comes from the chandelier is beautiful! We love it!
Have looked for several months before deciding on this Chandelier. I really wanted bronze, so did brush on a little paint to "tone it down". It is perfect now. It is the perfect size for the foyer and hall--I ordered 2 and am so happy I did. The crystals did take a little time, but well worth the trouble. You MUST have needle nose pliers. I tried clear 40 watt bulbs( it says 60W) and it was to "blairy". Put the frosted "soft" bulbs in and it is PERFECT.
