I ordered this for use as an entry chandelier in my craftsman styled home. At first I was wary of how the bare light bulbs might look. I chose to use frosted "soft white" bulbs, which I believe softens the look and provides a nice lighting effect. Additionally, I would highly recommend use of a dimmer switch. While not overly bright, the charm of this fixture really comes out at night when the lights are dimmed low, providing the illusion of candlelight. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars was the quality of manufacture. At this price, you can't complain, but a couple of the candle "bases" were bent outward. They are square and spot welded to the ring shaped base, making it very difficulty (and risky) to try to bend them upright. Having said that, being an entry light, you can't really notice any of the imperfections. If this were used over a large dining room table, I would be more cautious and would probably opt for a more expensive piece.
I am building a house. The electrician just hung this chandelier in my great room today. I love it, love it, love it ! It is soooo cool looking. It makes the room. It looks so much better than the expensive chandeliers I looked at on line. You cannot beat his deal. If you have a large enough room and a higher ceiling......It looks awesome.
Great value, attractive and stylish, unfussy but dramatic for a large space. Ours arrived quickly, in excellent shape. As easy to install as any ceiling fixture; we have it on a dimmer. The finish is pretty much black. We used black Sharpie to cover a couple of tiny chips that appeared on some chain links and I can't even see where they were. The candle covers are antiqued-looking, very nice. I *really* like this chandelier.
We are building a house, so the fixture is not yet hung. It looks great in the box, a bit lighter than I expected, but wonderfully packaged and wrapped to prevent any damage in shipping. It came quickly, and I think will be lots of bang for the buck!
It has great quality, at a cheap price. It looks so awesome up over our living room. The price is a steal for the value and look. I think we made our room with its overall old world charm and feel. Don't miss your chance to own one, really!
This chandelier arrived very quickly. It is a sizable statement for small dollar. I hung it over a large kitchen island and it looks very expensive and custom. The finish is delicate on the chain, but once it was hung you can't see the scratches from assembly. It is a little difficult to keep the support rods in place while assembling since they need tension from hanging to stay hooked. But all in all the chandelier adds lovely character and needed light to my kitchen.
I received a tip off of a design blog about this light. I ordered it several weeks later after I couldn't stop thinking about it. It arrived just before Valentine's day so we put it up in place of the living room ceiling fan. It looks perfectly Texas Chic in my little villa house in Austin, TX. Just perfect. I bought 15 watt bubls for it and still plan to install a dimmer. Very ambient and airy. Such a steal. Get it before they're gone!
This Chandelier is nice for the affordable asking price, but I thought the finish was a little cheap as it began chipping off when being installed, because it is not real iron. I was able to touch it up and you can't even tell. But what do you expect for the price? This chandeleir was installed by a pro in our nook area over a 60 in round table, we have 10 ft ceilings and the proportion was perfect. The style is really transitional and goes with many decor styles. My house tends to be more modern version of mediterranean, so it looked perfect, and really looks more expensive than it was even with the faulty finish.
Hi-I love the quality and the chandelier-I have not yet been able to put it up as the room is still under development.I promise to review in full detail when it is up and running. Your service has been excellent and the shooping experience the best! To be continued....
