I was looking to upgrade some of the light fixtures in my home. I looked at this chandelier for over a couple weeks trying to decide if this would work in my office/study. A chandelier was put in this room when the house was built because it could've been a possible dining room as well. So I didn't want something that hung down too low since we weren't using it as a dining room. It is a fairly big room and I was afraid this light wouldn't be big enough. It does work in this space pretty well and almost makes the room look bigger. It does look a little small hanging on the ceiling, however, when the light is turned on it puts out more than enough light for this room without having to turn on the canned lights. My husband and I, who know very very little about installing light fixtures, were able to install it ourselves without any issues. It looks like a good quality light and the crystals are very pretty and do not look cheap at all.

Unique and beautiful ceiling lamp. Hangs low enough to be used in a dining room.

We bought this light for our entry way, which isn't a very big space with a 9ft ceiling. This light is spectacular and just the right size for this area. The crystals are really nice and do not look cheap at all. I wish we had higher ceilings so that I could've let it hang more from the chain because we had to really shorten the length of it to about a foot but it still hangs down low enough that you can still see its beauty. The color is a very dark bronze, almost black when you look closely but hanging up I don't really notice the black so much as when the light is turned on you can see the dark bronze coming through. I also purchased the 2 tier 3 light fixture that is a smaller version for my office/study which is off to the right of the entry and they flow together really well. My husband and I, who know very little about installing light fixtures, were able to put this up fairly easily. Putting the crystals on wasn't that big of a deal to me as I just did it sitting in front of the tv. I was so anxious to get this light put up I didn't even think about it. I have gotten lots of compliments on this light and when it is turned on it is stunning. One of my friends came to my house for the first time last week and as soon as she saw my light she told me she had gotten the exact same one from Overstock for her Master Bath. What a coincidence!

If you have low ceilings, this is the chandelier for you. I had a difficult time finding a good looking chandelier that was around 12" high. It gives off enough light and creates a lovely pattern on the walls when lit.

I purchased this light fixture for my master bedroom, and wow - it makes the room pop! I am changing the decor of the room to more modern/transitional and this fixture blends quite well. I have normal 8 foot ceilings in the bedroom and was a bit concerned prior to installation that the light fixture might hang too low, but it is perfect. The light it bright, and the shade is gorgeous. You might want to put the light on a dimmer switch because it is quite bright when it is fully on. The only down side was the installation which was very challenging to do solo. I finally figured out a way to attach the extension arms to the shade via zip ties, until I could get the hardware screwed in which worked just fine. You have to be creative when you have no one to help! Anyhow, I am very glad I purchased this light fixture. It far outshines others I purchased for over ****.

I have low ceilings and wanted a flushmount light. This is exactly what I wanted. Everyone comments in it. Very sleek.

I'm extremely please with this chandelier. Mine came on time, assembled and the directions were super easy. I can barely change a light bulb and I was able to install this with ease. I have 15 foot ceilings in my foyer and I was looking for a piece that would grab your attention and this certainly does. I searched high and low for months for a chandelier that I LOVE and couldn't find anything until I found this. The lighting is not only pretty but it's functional and at certain times of the day the sun bouncing off the crystals casts really cool shadows on the wall and at night time when it's on it really sparkles. I loved this so much I ordered another one for my dining room. It was a little more than I wanted to pay for it but well worth it, the quality is great. Everyone who walks in my new home comments on it!

Not thrilled with this purchase, but it's already installed, so... I guess I'm stuck. Overall, I feel like it was my fault for not reading up on this item carefully enough before purchasing. It isn't as big as I thought it looked in the picture. The shade seems like it should be bigger (vertically). Plus, it doesn't quite seem to hang low enough over the DR table, but we have 9' ceilings. If you have 8', it would be better. 10', and you'd have yourself a semi-flush. The fabric on the shade isn't great quality, and I expected it would be "white," but, it is definitely off-white. In the right house, it would be great, but in mine, it just doesn't quite fit. Shoot.

You will most likely need an extra support in the ceiling. My husband didn't even have half of the jewels attached and it dropped from the brackets and hung low. He secured the bracket, reattached the wires and put the rest of the crystals on. Absolutely stunning!

The "Crystals" took a bit to assemble. The balls do not drop as low as shown in the picture, they drop right at the base of the rim. The "shade" is actually just a bunch of white strings all the way through. Good looking ceiling chandelier regardless. (decided to keep my review simple)

This fan was purchased for a third floor bedroom with a low ceiling so we needed something relatively low profile. The look of the fan is perfect and the price was great. It was easy (for my electrician boyfriend) to install. Only thing that is a little strange is the remote. Works fine, but looks like it's from 1982!

so pretty and gets lots of compliments. i bought this for my daughters room and it looks awesome. it would look amazing in any room. i like it because it does not hang too low, and it gives great sparkle and prismatic shine to the ceiling.

My bathroom has 9 1/2 foot ceilings. Even so, it was hanging down a little low for its placement which is directly over where you stand in front of the sink. I had the contractor take out a couple of links in each chain (I forget exactly how many now) and it was perfect. Bottom line: there is some flexibility with how low the light hangs--both with respect to the main chain and the three chains that hold the globe in place. I was a little concerned about odd shadows being cast by the glass texture in such a small room, but that was not a problem. Very bright light. I say "good" quality rather than "excellent" because I've seen the old ** design that this is based on and I thought it was a little nicer, but this is very good.

This wall mount simple crystal fixture is above my dining room. I have low ceilings so couldn't do a traditional chandelier like I wanted. This is perfect and the bronze finish is enough of an updated look to give the room quite the glow. It took about 1.5 hours to assemble. I would recommend washing the crystal strands in warm sudsy water first prior to hanging as they come shipped carefully wrapped but cloudy prob. from manufacturing.

Absolutely love this chandelier in my hallway. Gives just the right touch as a replacement for standard flush mounted lights. The only issue is that the glass and three chains give an optical illusion that makes the light appear to be off center at certain angles. Great for high ceilings. If you have regular height ceilings this light will hang too low. Happy with the purchase. Great price for what you get.

I bought two of these, and had to return them. The picture makes it look like a darker metal, maybe copper, and so I was surprised at the bright stainless steel contraption that came out of the box. It was a cool light fixture but not going to work for my 8 foot ceilings. Would hang too low.

I LOVE this mini chandelier. It is exactly what I expected but prettier. The picture on Overstock appears to have pink in it but It is a pure ,delicate white. It is perfect for a small room or bathroom perhaps. I put it in a 9X11ft room so the size was perfect. My ceilings are low also so without the chain it hangs 6 ft. If you are over 6 ft you might hit your head on the light in that room. I think it is beautiful. I like just looking at it.

I had been looking at this light for months, because it is wide but not tall. I have 8 foot ceilings and was ready to have to modify by leaving pieces out to make it not hang too low. I used just one link of the chain. It's in our bedroom above the bed, but if I had to walk under it, I would have shortened it. I am not an electrician and had never hard wired a light in (I'm handy and brave), but youtube helped and I did it no problem. You do need someone to hold the light up for you while you are twisting wires, though. 6 bulbs is a lot of light and I have 25 watt bulbs in...might install a dimmer on the switch. Took about 10 minutes to install, not including unpack and taking down the old ceiling fan.

We still have not hung this very heavy & impressive light. I was planning to put it in our cabin...but, alas, the ceiling was too low & it was practically sitting on the table! I have a spot for it in our sunroom that has cathedral ceilings & am sure that it will be perfect. This light does require quite a bit of ceiling height to look good.

The bottom edge of the shade is 68 inches high. When joining base pole to curved pole it is easier if you attach the mini-headless screws to the tiny Allen wrench and then inset in holes. I tried inserting screw into the pole first and ended up dropping them and hunting with a magnet and flashlight, Best to have a helper with assembly. Not complex just hard to handle solo. Now on from tips to review: It looks good in my 1950s living room. My ceilings are low and it is taller than expected but really provides as much light as an overhead fixture. Lots of reflection from the white ceiling. I was surprised that 75 watts is sufficient. I think 100 watts would be too bright.

This is not made to be attached to an standard American ceiling fixture, but It can be retrofitted easily with some parts from the big box store. I went to lowes and purchased the portfolio #0040957 crossbar kit. This had the crossbar and a threaded nipple to connect to chandelier post to the crossbar. This piece should have been included by the manufacturer but it's a Chinese knock off so that's what you get. The ceiling cap is also too small to cover an American ceiling box. That's a code violation. To remedy,I purchased a portfoilo ceiling medalion.... Get any size or style you like. They all have the same center hole. The hole in there is just right to cover and hide the ceiling hole without using an alternate ceiling cap. It's a nice looking piece I'll give you that. after you take it out of the poorly packaged box from China, you will see a zillion parts. No worries. It takes about 20 min and a lot of cursing to assemble.
