We installed it in our foyer which has only standard 8' ceilings. Been searching for something impressive, but that wouldn't hang too low or make anyone want to duck when they walked in the door: works perfectly for that and is has upscale looks. It changed the entire feel of the room and is a focal piece. The texture feel and metal fits in easily with our contemporary/transitional decor. A little bling without the pretension. Doesn't just look like a drum light with crystals around it. Has more of a designer feel to it. Like something from HGTV. Considering one for the master bedroom as well. Pricing was great. Crystals were surprisingly easy to hook in, just start in the middle and work your way out on one side. switch sides repeat. Like putting ornaments on a tree. Highly recommend.
Beautiful & full of sparkle....easy to install however I did have help which made it even easier. It does give a lot of light & leaves a pattern on the walls from the chrome shade, which some may or may not like. Overall very beautiful & worth the price. Customer service was awesome as I received 1 chipped crystal & a replacement was sent right away free of charge.
