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!!
This is a great buy. I installed this chandelier myself in an apt which has tall ceilings, wooden floors and black furniture. Despite the chandelier's slight brownish side, it gelled wonderfully and brought my living room together to a different level. it came assembled in a giant 4 by 4 box and only required modifying the chain from where it is suspended. I recommend using this fixture with a dimmer since the amount of light produced- while beautiful - may be too much for certain occasions.
My chandeleir is missing parts that wont allow me to hang it so at this point not even sure if it works. So I have to go around looking for the parts at hardware stores hoping I can find these C-hook looking parts. Overstock says will reimburse me but I am not happy that I have to do all of this running around and show them receipts to get reimbursed. Very annoying. I will not be ordering any more items from them. Carrie *******
