We wanted something over our dining room table that would put out better light than what we had and also that looked more in keeping with the age of our house. This fits the bill perfectly. Three hundred watts of downward facing light (we are using led's), slightly diffused by the translucent white glass are just what we needed. We love the simplicity of the styling and were very happy with the price.
I wanted a new look in my dining room after 18 years. On a limited decorating budget, I chose this chandelier over one I REALLY wanted. ( which was a $1000) I'm so glad I did. This one has the same look, works well with a dimmer switch, and was easy to install ...I used a professional :). Great buy for the money !
Overall this sleek design pendant light is beautiful. It is modern but still warm and cozy. I'm very satisfied. I would buy other lights if there are smaller size with matching design. There is no diffuser for the top, so you get a lot of light up on your ceiling which I like. However, after one summer, I have to clean dead bugs which make black spots on the buttom diffuser. Please correct product info ; 3 light bulbs.
Looks retro cool. Paired with a parsons table and mid century plastic and chrome chairs. Light beige color to shade cover and the metal is a soft brassy/chrome. Very neutral. Looks expensive. Lots of compliments. Makes the dining nook.
Beautiful cream shade and brushed champagne gold trim and glass (not plastic) cover make this light fixture look far more expensive than $! It also is an excellent transition piece and a way to add a modern touch to a transitional decor.
Needed to replace a dining room chandelier in a mid-century house. The fixture in place was brass/glass/wood and seemed out of sync with the period. Went looking for something 60ish that is also contemporary and with very simple lines. Price was important and so was wattage. This fixture fit the bill in every way. Out of the box it initially appeared too narrow but once installed, the narrow drum shape was exactly right. Two reviewers points are well taken though. The light does shine up at the ceiling in a distracting way and the glass circle that shields sight of the bulbs can be missed if one isn't careful....its in the bottom of the box. One other thing....would have preferred not to have a seam on the drum...it becomes very obvious when the light is on. All these are minor issues though....the chandelier is just right in so many ways and the pale metal look banding is exactly the right bridge between the shiny gold of the 60s look (which I dislike) and today's prevalent silver look. Most fixtures of this style cost much, much more.
Well, I just received mine and it is definitely not silver. It is brushed, matte gold. The housing matches the metal rim around the shade and the gold rods. So if you are looking for silver, you might not get it. The wood is gorgeous. I am still giving it five stars because I will use it in one of my other designs.
This is a stunning light fixture, classic & elegant. As other reviewers have mentioned, the metal is more of a champagne color. The wood grain shade has very subtle tones on cream & tan, very tasteful. It is hanging over my dining room table and gives amble light but not glaring because of it's diffuser. I would highly recommend this fixture.
Very nice ceiling light. We live in a split level house with the front door opening to a middle stair landing. The ceiling is around 12 feet high and this light does a GREAT job lighting up the area. The fixture material is made of a very good quality fabric and as an electrician I must say that the electrical fixture itself is a high quality unit. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
The description states that the shade is off-white. It is definitely a light color, but is more of a cream. I almost sent it back as my walls in my den are a soft off-white. The light appeared to have a yellowy tint to it, but once up, it looks great. I love the modern/contemporary look of the light. Very stylish with the metal rims on the upper and lower part of the light. There's also a diffuser at the bottom as to not see the light bulbs. The metal on the light fixture is a champagne color. Pic of light on Overstock is very indicative of the actual light. The only draw-back on this light is where the shade connects at the back. It's been glued, but we just turned it away from company entering the room. A great price though. Our den is 18 x 22 and gives off plenty of light.
My interior designer actually selected this fixture for my entryway. I was a little concerned that it would look "cheap", but was pleasantly surprised. Although the metal trim is not of the highest quality and there were a few slight imperfections, the glass diffuser is heavy and the overall piece looks excellent installed. For those with questions about the metal trim color, the one I purchased is a soft matte gold tone, which is exactly what I wanted. It could blend into most designs as a "neutral".
After may hours of internet searching, I finally decided on this one. It's perfect, goes great with my mid-modern home with a flat roof line. It's just the kind of look that is current yet still looks like it was made for this 50's home.
