As an interior designer, I can be very picky. This is a really good looking fixture however the finish does flake easily if you are not careful. Also, mine does not hang perfectly straight. It is not too obvious and probably no one can see it but me, but I wish it were perfect. By the time the light was hung in our new home, it would have been quite an ordeal to have it taken down to be replaced, so we left it up. It is a very unique piece and looks quite nice hanging over my 60" round table in the dining room. Instead of the overdone chandelier that you might expect to see there, it has a very simple elegance and doesn't steal thunder from the other items in the room. If it hung perfectly straight and the finish were perfect, I would have given it 5 stars.
Love this chandelier! We just bought an old southern home that had brass fixtures throughout (yuk!). I wanted a chandelier that looked as if it could have been the original but with a modern touch. This chandelier is PERFECT! The black is modern day yet the style is rustic and old world. We have a deep foyer and not very wide with the stairs right at the door and this chandelier looks amazing in it and lets off plenty of light (25 watt bulbs). We have elliptical transoms over the front door and dining room entrance and thought the round chandelier would look great. Couldn't be happier!

After reading some reviews, I was concerned that the chandelier would be too big for my dining room, because I don't have high ceilings. But no reason for concern. It looks amazing. It was pretty difficult and time consuming to install however, so be sure to have at least two people and high ladder at hand. But this was the first time I've ever replaced a chandelier by hand. Great purchase for the price!
this is even more beautiful than the picture can show. the only problem is its size. it's over 3 feet wide, and hangs way low from a standard ceiling. i've got it up anyway. now i'm back on overstock, shopping for a table that sits under it in a way that will keep everyone from walking into it!!
I'm so pleased with this chandelier. It's quite a statement piece. I took the advice of others and had the electrician keep the plastic on while installing to avoid scratching. It hangs perfectly level, although I did have to carefully bend a couple of the candles to straighten them. Also, you should know that when turned on,the clear, flame shaped type bulbs are very bright. I solved this problem by installing a dimmer switch. I guess you could try frosted bulbs, but not sure they'd have the same impact. The price is truly unbelievable.
This fixture absolutely made my living room. My husband argued against removing a ceiling fan to install it, but he and I both were blown away by how beautiful this chandelier truly is. And those who have complained about it not hanging correctly must not have connected the hooks properly. Ours was crooked until we discovered this. You will not regret purchasing this. Oh and did I mention that it is really large? It's such a statement piece.
Installed this chandelier in the breakfast room of my old house 3 years ago and I loved it! Now we have moved and I am planning on using it again in my formal dining. A fun tip for the holidays: at Christmas I always decorated mine with holiday garland (just set it on top of the round part and secure to the "candles) and hung Christmas cards from it with tape. It looked adorable and even with all this action I never had a problem with the finish flaking like some mentioned.
Fantastic fixture! I have two hanging in a large room with 10' ceilings. Everyone loves them and ask where I got them. They are relatively light weight making them easier to install. I used led bulbs that look great in them and provide wonderful light. Just had to slightly adjust a few of the candle sleeves on the fixture after hanging to align with each other.
I love, love this chandelier. It looks very similar to a visual comfort/circa lighting fixture, but at a fraction of the cost. I hung it in my great room with 20 feet ceilings and it looks amazing! I did have to add more chain though, but no biggie. This fixture goes with many styles: rustic, contemporary, coastal, French country, etc. I highly recommend it!
This chandelier transformed the look of my kitchen!!!!! It it amazing! The title of the light is "old world" that is a perfect description. This light fixture made my older oak cabinets look like I just installed them. PERFECTION!!!! The only thing negative I could say is that the installation was a challenge. My husband complained the whole time he was installing it but, was glad after seeing what it looked like. Tip: as another reviewer suggested, do leave the plastic wrap on it until after it is completely installed. There will be alot of banging around.
The chandelier came well packaged and was very attractive. It is rather large which I needed for the room. It looks great and I have received many compliments on the light fixture already.

We converted an old barn loft into a cooking school. An old nasty ceiling fan hung from the gable. I needed a fixture with a presence and a lot of light. I didn't want shades - fabric or glass - because it would be easier to clean. This chandelier is absolutely perfect. I had a high-end floral designer come and look at the space and he gasped when he walked in. "Where did you get that chandelier?" he asked. "Overstock," I proudly replied.
