I purchased this chandelier as a Mother's Day gift for mother-in-law. She absolutely loved it. Other than having to attach the crystals that hang down, the installation was a breeze. My mother-in-law did purchase a ceiling molding that really added to the overall look. The crystals really shine and illuminate the entire ceiling when the light is turned on.
Purchased for new home. We installed ourselves in foyer and it is just gorgeous! You do have to hang each crystal, but it was not difficult, just tedious and a bit time consuming. You may find the structure of fixture is not perfectly even, so you may have to adjust gently. It cast off shadows on ceiling and walls, so be mindful before purchasing. I personally like that effect, but not everyone does. I am very pleased overall with this light fixture and have received many compliments on it.
I ordered this light to go with the much larger 4 light round chandelier. This one went in the sitting area of our master bedroom. I knew from the reviews that it would be small but it really would work better for a closet or a bathroom. It doesn't have the same elegance as I was hoping for and it looks a little cheap in comparison. I think I am going to take off the lower crystals to see if it will help with the overall appearance. Lots of spare parts sent too, which is really nice.
I absolutely love this chandelier!! The light it creates on the wall is stunning. It was pretty easy to install, and I very quickly added the crystal drops on the edges. It was, at most, a 10 minute job. Everyone who has seen it, thinks it's stunning. Very pleased with this purchase!
I added 2 of these to my closet for a little more light. But they are so pretty that I want to invite people to my closet just to see these. My electrician hated these though--lots of crystals to attach. I wasn't around to see the installation but I was told it was standard (easy) except for the crystals, which I was told were a pain in the patookas.
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.
