I saw a chandelier that's almost identical as this piece in a high end catalog but for dollars more! I'm sure the quality of the other light fixture may be nicer, but for what you're spending on this chandelier you honestly can't go wrong... Looks gorgeous over my farmhouse table.
Somehow it looks nicer in the pic than in my house but I still like it. My biggest problem was that the chain was too short to properly swag it and hang it at the right height above the table. Putting on those crystal balls was lots of fun (since my hubby did it for me). LoL
It's very pretty and for the most part I'm happy with it, but it casts a shadow on the table below it which makes it difficult to read at the table. Also, my husband is a pretty good handyman, but it took awhile to install and he had to purchase a longer part to attach the light to the ceiling piece because the part that came with it wasn't long enough. If I had another chance, I would probably look for something else that fits all my needs, both beauty and functionality.
Arrived quickly, easy to assemble, simple yet elegant for newly redecorated master bedroom. It provides an abundance of light! Clear bulbs were a bit much, so switched to frosted to create a warmer light glow. I am pleased with this product purchase.
I ordered this light because it was one of the only lights that did not require extensive assembly according to the reviews and pics. It did come assembled in the box! Only the glass balls needed to be hung which my teen did in 10 minutes. This is perfect to replace a giant ORB light that was so over the top in a 12x11 foot dining room with extensive moulding. Very classy light: not overpowering, but adds a solid dose of glam.
I absolutely love the look of this chandelier. We put it in our dining room. The only problem we had was the balls have keychain hooks to latch to the chandelier and they are very difficult to hang. I had one break so we didn't hang the balls on the very top row.
The chandelier arrived quickly and well packed. It was assembled, except for of course the glass balls you have to attach yourself. My husband put it up in no time. He did grumble about the fact the wiring wasn't standard. Typically there is a black one, white one, and copper ground. This has two black wires and a silver one. He eventually realized after shining a flashlight on the wires that one has white writing on it, so he proceeded on the basis that one is the "white" one and it worked. We only have 8 foot ceilings, so we had to pull quite a bit of cord through and shove it up into the ceiling. It took me about an hour to attach the 35 glass balls. They are on tiny wire circles similar to key chains and at times were tough for my fine-motor challenged fingers. I did put a thick rug and towels underneath in case I dropped one, which I didn't. They included one extra glass ball in case which is nice. The light it gives off is not bright, but a nice soft lighting. The chandelier is a bit more dainty than the PB one that also sells on Overstock in oil rubbed bronze. We have it hanging over an oval table that seats 4. If you have a larger table you might want to consider two or a larger chandelier. This one is classy and understated in my opinion. The glass balls give it a bit of shine and bling without being flashy or pretentious. It took me a year to finally make a decision on our dining chandelier and I am so pleased with this one!! We are slowly converting our kitchen to classic black and white, the house is open concept with dining area right next to the kitchen. One note: after we put up the light we noticed a couple areas on the arm that were missing black paint. You can see it didn't completely hit those areas when they sprayed the paint on. I contacted Overstock's customer service and they were great. Very responsive, apologetic, and helpful. They offered to send out a new one or give me a discount. Super customer service! I am pleased with the result. And with my beautiful chandelier. I will be buying more lights from Overstock.
Placed it in the kitchen because of the beautiful light it puts out.Does not have enough presence to be placed in the dinning or living room for me.This was one of the easiest lights to hang and put together and very light weight.It looks good,I think I was just looking for more.
