This chandelier is lovely with the leaf design - easy to hang and wait until you turn it on!! Absolutely beautiful!! It looks more expensive than it was and very durable and strong as far as the construction of the lamp. Great price too!
Great looking, easy to install, the only small complaint is using the extension rods, It was installed with all the rods being used. It does not hang perfectly straight, due to the extensions. It is not very noticable to anyone other than me.....But I hung it....It is a good looking fixture...If you plan on putting it up with a 8/10 ft ceiling I would rate it a 5 star...
Beautiful and unique. The black metal is a bit shiny. so I did as another reviewer suggested and painted it with a dark brown textured spray paint. The result made it look much heavier and aged. Did the same with the matching pendants - just covered up the inner shade with a trash bag and it came out perfect! Excellent purchase. Gotta love the O!
I was searching high and low for a pendant fixture for my dining area. I wanted it to have some style beyond a plain white drum, but didn't want to commit to a colored printed shade...this absolutely fit the bill. I read several reviews of satisfied customers, but the feature that put me over the top is that it has a glass diffuser. I am very particular about fixtures over the dining table...can't stand bare exposed bulbs! I love the price I paid, how great this looks, and how absolutely simple it was to install. Perfect.
I ordered this finally when it was restocked for the 3rd time, as it kept selling out. Although it went up in price by the time I ordered, it is a great look at a great price, and very easy to install (although the electrical connection instructions don't exist, just the light assembly). But if you are handy and have ever made electrical connections on a fixture before, its a piece of cake. I'm a 60+ single female, and installed it myself with no problem. You will also need to turn the shade seam to match the outer metal seam before hanging. I didn't notice this until installed, but it was still adjustable. This is the second item I have ordered from OS, and I am very pleased. This will be my first go-to site from now on.
I received the light fixture...I was surprised this took longer tto arrive than anything I've ever ordered from Overstock. However, it still came within 1 week. I got a great value got it for only xxx. I really needed brown not black...but I ordered it anyway and just spray painted it a beautiful brown. I just used the plastic it was shipped with and covered the inside shade as best I could...it came out perfect. As others have mentioned the seams aren't perfectly lined up & the shade seam is pretty big. Unfortunatley, I wasn't home when my husband had our handyman put it up, so I'm going to have it turned so that the inside seam faces the door (in my foyer) no one will see it when they first walk in. The light isn't as bright as the junk I had up before because of the difuser, but I gave it 5 stars because if you get the seam right...it's just beautiful...you do a lot to make it even more fancy...It took spray paint well!!
This lamp arrived promptly, and was a breeze for my brother-in-law to install--I believe I could have even done it had I needed to! The frosted glass diffuser is a nice touch, as is the pivot at the mount that allows some adjustment. The only reason that I didn't give it a full 5 stars is that the vertical seams on the inner lampshade and outer metal shade don't line up, making it a little more difficult to hide that element by turning the lamp so that it isn't facing outward.
I just put this up on Tuesday (1/19/2010). The only flaw I see is that it might be a hassle to change the bulbs because there is the glass disfuser that you have to remove (that has a rod connected to it also) to get to the bulbs......
I love this pendant lamp - bought it for my condo and it really helps the room come together. Quality is nice and sturdy, looks stylish and installation was not too difficult. The rod to hang it with comes in various lengths / sections so that you can adjust it to your desired height.
This light is so unique and looks so warm when on and very decorative when not on. The only issue was when hanging it, I had to choose if the outer metal seam or the inner seam from the fabric shade would show. There was no way to turn the inner shade to make them line up. So I chose to hide the metal seam on the backside. Now when the light is on, the fabric seam shows through on the front and is very noticeable when the light is on. Don't know if that would bother others as much as it does me!
The installed, finished product is incredible. It looks clean, modern/50s-ish, but also a natural motif. The shade seams, as previously mentioned, are somewhat of an eyesore. I aligned the two and faced them towards the corner. I used 2 1/2 of the 3 1/2 (3 long, 1 short) hanging rods to put the fixture at approx. 6' above my floor. This combination seemed to give plenty of flexibility and the seams between these rods are practically invisible. Its worth noting that the cover plate at the ceiling hinges at these rods. It would appear you could hang the fixture from an angle/cathedral ceiling. My big issue with the fixture was a misaligned weld in the diffuser hanging assembly. We had to use a lever to gently bend the piece a little. Otherwise the diffuser would have overshot the shade on one side. (The stock had sold out so I couldn't get an exchange.)
Received product within a few days; everything was OK--nothing damaged. This is a beautiful light and looks just like the photo. It is elegant, sophisticated, and could go casual or more formal. We have it over our breakfast room table, but you can see it from our great room. It is well made, has a beautiful silk-like inner shade in white/cream, and a glass diffuser for the very bottom so you won't be looking up into a bare bulb. A nice detail is that the upper and lower rims of the black shade are covered in a black fabric over the metal -- just gives it a high-end look. Easy to install (my grown son did it). You have several options with the down rods to get the length you need. My daughter in law also loved it!
My wife and I are building a new home in FL and she chose this light to go over our breakfast island. It has not been hung yet, but took it out of the box and it's just what we were looking for. The cylinder shape is becoming very popular today and the simplicity with beauty of this light will give us the designer touch we want. This light is TOP NOTCH. We are ordering all of our lighting from OS.
I waited to replace a light fixture until I found exactly the right one. This was it - great value, easy assembly and the light coming from the top of the fixture, as well as below (even with the diffuser) was just right. The option of 2 down rod lengths was impressive.
Absolutely LOVE this fixture! Hung it over our island in the kitchen and it looks great. The perfect transition between clean-line contemporary in the kitchen open to the diningroom where we have arts and crafts style furniture. Very easy to assemble and install. Arrived in perfect condition and when promised even though it was the week of Christmas.
