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!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Extremely high quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Great
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 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.

Advice please! I have the Shea light fixture in my living room, which is open to my dining room. My dining room is quite small,my living room large. Do you think the 2 large fixtures would be overwhelming, and a bit too much "old world" charm? I have an industrial , rustic type light in my kitchen. My other thought for my dining room would be a drummed pendant, but not too small. I love the large light fixtures, but not sure if I'm overdoing it. If you think a drummed pendant would look better for dining room, any suggestions that would coordinate with the other 2? Thanks so much!bkay83 on Dec 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us bkay83. I think this will work very well in the dining room. It will add to the old world charm. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 4, 2013
Sound like you may have a bit much going on. I have this light (love it), but the style would not coordinate with drum lighting, in my opinion.hollymac00 on Dec 11, 2013
I would love to buy this chandelier, but I really want the faux candles to be white. Not because I don't think it looks good as-is, it is just that white will go with my space better. Do you think it would be possible/look good if I painted the faux candles white?Any opinions are appreciated!! :)thevintagebean on Jul 24, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Paint the candles white. Nice light fixture....crappywebsite on Aug 27, 2013
I love this fixture so much that I do not think it could be improved upon. The chandelier has an old world feel to it that may be lost if you painted the candles white. Try not to match everything so literally. I would recommend buying this and seeing what it looks like in person. If you truly think it would look better white, paint it. Think long and hard first.chakis on Nov 11, 2013
I think they could be painted if you really want them white. Don't miss this wonderful fixture for a reason that small.leanlayne on Nov 22, 2013
How large is the top that attaches to the ceiling? I'm thinking of also ordering a ceiling medallion and need that dimension, too. :). Thanks!sdholly on Jul 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Can this be hung with only 1 link? We want to hang it in our living room and it needs to be as high as possible. My husband was unable to make it work at that height (couldnt get the wire through with such a short wire). Has anyone hung it like this and if so, how?mirabelleb on Mar 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest in the Old World 9-light Chandelier. It is hung onto the ceiling through the metal chain that is adjustable. You can adjust the height of the chandelier by adjusting the chain length. I hope this answers your questions. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance on this or any other issue.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 14, 2013
Not sure, as we have it hung from a 30ft ceiling entry...but it hangs directly in front of balcony...perfect for price.slepage on Mar 29, 2013
I have an old world feel bedroom. I purchased the bedroom set from Broyhill furniture from the old world antique collection. we have a catheral ceiling about 14feet in height. I love the look of this chandelier. Would it be too much/too big for a bedroom?wkearns on Feb 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
No, it would look great in a bedroom! Perfect with your bedroom set! I would put it on a dimmer and use 25w bulbs.3buoys on Feb 19, 2013
Yes- use dimmer to control light.slepage on Mar 29, 2013

I have 8ft ceilings in my dining room, and my dining table is 96'' long, would this lamp look right?aftanb on Jan 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest. It is a beautiful piece and no doubt would look stunning in your space. If you did not like the look once installed, you could always purchase extra chain and wire and extend it. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

It's a large fixture, but due to light/airy feel, it wouldn't overwhelm your space.slepage on Mar 29, 2013
What are the exact dimensions of this fixture (reviewers indicate it's larger than described)?
Also, is the color black or bronze?tucker90103 on Jan 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Actually, the correct dimensions should be listed. The reviewer didn't list dimensions, so I think they found it larger than they originally thought. However, the other reviews did not have a problem with the size and those reviews can help determine whether this size will work for you. The ball that the rods are attached to definitely looks like it has a bronze effect and the rods are black. I hope this helps. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 2, 2013
The dimensions were exactly as listed...slepage on Mar 29, 2013
