I was super excited when I received the fixture. However, once I opened it, I soon realized that my bargain buy was anything but. I have purchased light fixtures through the mail before. All have come with quality instruction and mostly assembled (may have to put on a shade, etc.) but this one was in multiple pieces and had no instructions on how to put it together. It also involved a lot of plastic pieces that didn't match the fixture and stuck out like a soar thumb. The crystals were strung on a wire than draped over the center bar of the fixture. There was no way to hold them in place or secure them to keep them from sliding off. It's as if the whole design was an after thought. VERY disappointed.
We loved the look of this lighting fixture and still do but we had to modify the cord coming out of it. it looked cheap and so we used some stainless steel bars to thread it through to the ceiling. We have noticed the plastic that it up against the shade is starting to crack from the heat after a year.
