Absolutely fabulous, looks expensive . I put it over a dinning room table where I wanted it to look classy but contemporary and it does. Just know that the shade is somewhat see thru. The picture makes it look darker or the shade is more solid. It casts a see thru appearance. It does show the shadow of the under neath bars. Not much, but if your wanting a solid shade I don't want you to be disappointed. It was not enough to be a true negative to me. , It was packaged exceptionally well for shipping, arrived precisely on the day it said, extremely easy to put up, and most of all well worth the money. Overstock really proved themselves to me this Christmas. You can tell that they are holding the companies they do business with to an exceptional standard. I ordered thru *** also and they don't anywhere measure up to overstock. So go for it with overstock.

Absolutely loved it - although I ended up having to return as the electrical box in my ceiling was not square - note to self...if putting up a square or rectangular fixture it does make a difference on how the electrical box was inserted, might want to check first. I needed to return and instead put up a circular fixture (where direction of electrical box didn't matter)

This was our first experience hanging a fixture with cables, so reading the other reviews was a bit of a life saver, to say the least. You definitely need to start low when you hang it, then step back and raise it a bit at a time since you can always make it higher, but I see no way to lower it again once you've pulled the cables. Maybe there is, but my husband was not able to find a way that would have been anything easy or fun to do. Easy to hang, for the most part (most fixtures have an issue or two, it just comes with the territory), and makes an elegant, bold statement. We have it in our dining room over a beautiful glass top table with black velvet chairs, I call it my tribute to '40's Hollywood Glam. It is an attention-getter, and we have received countless compliments on it. It offers a lot of light, and you can really see the linen look of the shade when it's on. We are so happy with this piece, it is truly beautiful~
Chandelier is very pretty. Took about 3 hours from start to finish including installing a new box and a trip to hardware store. The shade was completely unglued on one side. I glued it back but it has rough looking edges and looks unfinished, still trying to figure out how to make it look better without taking the entire chandelier down. Overall it is beautiful and looks chic over our kitchen island.
This is a pretty chandelier, but its a bit cheaply made. When i got it, the material on the shade was frayed around the corners. The shade material is also a bit flimsy. The crystals have a slightly old-plastic-yellowish hue to them, and they are acrylic, not glass. Putting it up wasnt too bad, just make sure you have a level on hand, so that its straight. At the end of it the day though, its pretty enough, and enhances the value of your place. (i have it in my kitchen)
This is really classy looking! The shade is slightly transparent when the lights are on. The crystals hang from small "flower" pedals at the base of the lights - so you can use the light with or without them, but definitely adds the finishing touch to add them! While the bar casts a shadow it is down the middle of the table and the light is directed to where you sit at a dining room table so it it perfect! Love it.
looks awesome from the distance. wish was finished from the inside as well. but for this price not much complains.... and now message to Overstock MODERATORS...really I can't just post my review!!!!???? it hast to go through your hands????? hope you post what ppl really write!!! thx
I LOVE this light!! Bought it to hang over our dining table and when I first saw it in person, it struck me as much smaller than I thought it would be. But after we (as in he) hung it, it could not be more perfectly sized and we have a gigantic dining table. It's modern, fresh, and very eye-catching with the dangling glass crystals. Thought the black shade may hinder the light too much, but turned out to be a non-issue. The light that this lamp casts is very focused (because of the black) and makes the light cast down in such a way that somewhat creates a diffused spot light effect. LOVE!! HUBs says it was not "that bad" to install, but he's insanely handy. Definitely was not a quick install and looked very confusing outside the box. The results make it worth it though. Someone who bought the white one said it was difficult to level and sags. We actually used a level and it worked out just fine.
This chandelier was exactly what I wanted for my dining room. I was a little disappointed in the quality of the shade. It has 2 areas where it looks like it had a pull through the fabric. You can also see through the fabric so with the lights on it is not actually black, but more of a dark gray. Two of the drops also were broken when it arrived. There were 2 extra in the package so it worked out okay. Overall a good purchase for the price.
