This chandelier is great. We bought it to hang in our dining room, over our dining room table. Hanging the lamp was fairly easy. We have had it over a year now and have no complaints, except for a very minor one, that the texture of the lamp allows for some little strings to stick out in certain areas.
This was cheaply made! While it's still hanging and working after 3 years, I consider replacing it every time I look at it. First, the base doesn't fit tightly against the ceiling, therefore it's crooked. Secondly, the fabric trim was cut uneven and is noticeable to me. I would not buy this again, but would spend more money on a nicer one.
Chandelier is completely different color than the image online. It is actually more of a burlap or khaki color so don't purchase it and expect it to look ivory or white. Light looks good from far away once it's hung up but you can see some glued spots through the fabric when it's lit up and glass plate on bottom doesn't fit perfectly. Multiple rods are included that allow you to adjust height easily.
I was back and forth between the barrel or this light and I made a great choice. My husband ( not an electrician put up the light) it looks amazing. We have an open concept kitchen, eating area and small social room and I wanted something that would not impede the view. It doesn't. Easy design makes it feel new and cozy modern. It's perfect
This light works beautifully over our dining room table and we're extremely happy with the purchase - elegant, but informal and classy. Very nice lines. It was easy to put together and is easy to change bulbs (from the top), when needed. One thing I will note: it is best to use incandescent (regular) light bulbs instead of low-wattage (coil) bulbs. The coil bulbs show shadows on the interior, but regular bulbs don't. Overall, very pleased.
The first one I ordered came damaged, the box appeared in tact, but the glass inside had shattered. Although it was months later, Overstock was verya ccommodating and was able to send out a replacement in a timely manner. The second one arrived unscathed. The most disappointing part was that the color of the shade was a light tan linen, not at all like the crisp-white shade pictured. Therefore, it looks a lot more traditional/transitional than modern/sleek. Buyer beware!
I read a lot of reviews before purchasing this light, opting to go out on a limb regarding the color and quality of the light because the price was right. I am writing this review on 1/24/2015. I am a 34 year old female and I installed the light myself in my Chicago condo. I have no experience with electrical work, this was my first time installing a light by myself (with my Dad helping me on FaceTime, haha). Here's what I found: 1) The lamp shade is not white as the picture suggests or as the other reviewers commented. It is a burlap color but with bright light bulbs it appears as a very warm and inviting color and goes well with a white, black, and grey kitchen as mine is. 2) The entire chandelier, assembled, weighs 18lbs. It is VERY heavy! This is a 2-man install. It requires 1 person to hold the lamp while the other person connects the wires. 3) Although very heavy, this chandelier does NOT require extra screws or support to hold it flush against the ceiling. I do suggest using pliers to very tightly secure the two screws that attach the black frame to the mounting bracket. In doing this, the black frame will snug up nice and flush against your ceiling, assuming your ceiling is flat. 4) With three 150 watt warm white lights this chandelier throws A LOT of light, dramatically increasing the brightness of my kitchen. 5) The edges of the shade on my lamp are glued down but they are glued down flat and securely. It was not falling apart when I opened the box. Although it does not appear to be a $1,000 quality chandelier, it is still very nice quality for the money and has received a lot of compliments from my friends and neighbors.
Great light. It took a few deliveries to get one without glass broken, but now it is up and it is beautiful! Looks like the one I wanted from ********** ********* less the $*** price! We hung it over our pool table and it looks amazing! Well worth the price! I would recommend!
I've been looking forward to ordering this item for several months... When the time finally came and the package arrived I was so excited. Then I opened the box :( I was under the impression that this would be a linen color (as pictured), however, it is more of a khaki/ imitation burlap color. Bummer! Not sure it will match my decor as well as I was hoping.
We are returning our New Ventura. When we opened the box we found the color to look more like burlap than what we were expecting. The material looked cheap and clashed with everything in our room. I can't comment as to the quality of the product in use because we never put it up. It was clear to us that we'll need a different light.
We ordered this for our new home and it looks amazing! No one can believe the low price we paid for it, considering many similar fixtures cost several hundred dollars more. The ceiling in our dining room is high and slanted, so we had it installed professionally. The chain at the top allows for adjustment so the fixture hangs level to the floor, even though the ceiling is angled. The size of this light is huge, but it's the perfect size to make a statement over a rectangular table. The quality isn't a 10/10 but for the price it was better than expected. You can't pay ** for a large fixture like this and expect it to be perfect but it was close enough. The only flaw we noticed was that the fabric part of the shade was applied so that the edges showed when the light was on... It was an easy fix after I just tucked in the edges with my nail. Looks perfect now!
