This Josie antique copper iron chandelier is complete with a fabric shade. This chandelier will brighten the room and entertain your friends and family. The classic open-frame lantern chandelier is updated with a trendy white fabric shade in this transitional lighting fixture. The long 39.5-inch chain accommodates high foyers as well as dining rooms, and with the chandelier's three 60-watt bulb sockets, every corner is illuminated. The antique style and coloring of this light are an ideal match for classic decor.
Arrived perfect, it was packed in a heavy duty box, with multiple pieces of cardboard, foam, etc. that kept it damage free in shipping. The lamp itself has so many details that you would not expect in a relatively inexpensive pendant -- such as the shade hangs on a free-moving swing arm within the outer frame -- this keeps the white “shade within" perfectly level, no matter what the frame does. Also as you stand above the lamp and look down, the round disc that holds the sockets is finished in a woodgrain pattern, a nice detail that adds to the already pretty impressive finish details. The color is a tricking copper -- I was afraid it would be “orangey”, but it’s not at all, just looks like a copper with a hand rubbed aged finish, we have dark finished floors and railings beneath the light and it coordinates very well with those.. I love this and will be watching (and hoping) for coordinating items so I can use them in other places. I was afraid to order it, as there were no other reviews when I purchased it, but now that I’ve seen it, I can say I highly recommend it -- if you have the space. It is a large fixture!
This is essentially a knock off of a fixture I have been admiring that retails for over $$$. The two fixtures are the same size and same design, so I couldn't resist purchasing the Josie Chandelier at a MUCH cheaper price. The antique copper finish is nice, but it was a little too rustic for my taste (it looks more oil rubbed bronze in person). To remedy that, I mixed a little silver leaf and gold leaf Rub-N-Buff and applied it to the entire fixture (minus the shade). It is now a muted gold tone, which gives it a more contemporary yet classic look. Overall, the fixture is a very nice size and fits well over my 54" round kitchen table.
- Nice size (bigger than you think)
- Clean lines
- Price is excellent
- Fast shipping
- Looks expensive
Cons (and why I think it's really more of a 3.5 star fixture):
- Shade seam is very noticeable and need to be tacked down. I will probably try adding a little super glue and just turned the seam to face the back side of the table.
- The shade is a pale ivory during the day, but reads rather gold/beige at night.
- No matter what I do, I can't seem to get the shade to hang completely straight (in spite of the swivel that is supposed to keep the lights and shade level). I don't think anyone else will notice, but it's annoying.
- The fixture only takes 3, 60W candelabra bulbs, so I had to experiment with bulbs to get the correct brightness. Here is what I found....
1. Halogen bulbs are the best. They give off the brightest, most natural looking light. So far, they don't seem to be burning too hot and I'm very happy with them.
2. LEDs are just awful. I tried two different brands of both soft white and daylight and both gave off a sickly, fluorescent glow. Stay away.
3. Regular incandescents are too dim. I tried both soft white and GE reveals and neither were bright enough.
In conclusion, I really am happy with my purchase. Considering the low price, I didn't expect the quality to be superb and figured I would have to fiddle with it. Just do yourself a favor and get some halogen bulbs from the get go and also be prepared to have to work with the shade to get it to hang correctly.
After looking at several more expensive lantern style pendants, we settled on this one and I'm glad we did. Excellent quality and style for the price. Fast shipping, properly packaged. This light is pretty substantial (see dimensions) - we hung it over our breakfast table and it looks great. It would be large for a hallway light unless you have really high ceilings or an otherwise very open space. So glad I chose this one over a few others I was considering because it saved me $100 and I got the look I wanted. It has a gold undertone, but is still a very dark metal - not black, however.
Love the look of this ceiling light. I replaced a florescant light in my laundry room with this light and it looks so charming. Of course it is not as bright as the florescant but I expected that and I have adjusted quickly. It came with most of the parts already put together so installation was fairly easy. My only issue is that the seam on the shade is pulling apart. I'm hoping that a few drops of super glue will take care of that.

What size room is this suitable for? I'm concerned it won't be bright enough, considering it takes the candelabra bulbs. Also, is there a light diffuser on the bottom of the shade?decoratingisfun304 on Oct 6, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
