This piece just arrived and I think some measurements need clarification! The drum shade is not 17" in diameter as stated, but actually 15 3/4"; the height of the shade is 8", not 9" as stated. There also seemed to be some confusion about whether the fixture was a flushmount or hanging chandelier; it is definitely a flushmount ( i.e. the drum shade will be less than an inch from the ceiling once installed). That being said, it is exactly as pictured, and if the slightly smaller- than- described dimensions aren't a problem, don't hesitate!
I was soooo excited to get this light. My husband and I debated for months until we laid our eyes on this. Sadly before we even got it unwrapped, we could see how poorly made this was. The ribbon detail in the center was applied very crooked. It definitely would have drawn your eye, but not for the right reasons. We returned immediately. And also had to pay for return shipping. Not happy at all.
