Overstock delivered this in a day for free and it arrived 100 times better than I could have imagined. I was going for a romantic master bedroom look with white bedding and this is exactly what I wanted. The iron is prominent in black without being too heavy looking or dominating and the crystals (though the directions were difficult to read) provide an unbelievable shine and luxury. 5 lights is just enough to brighten the room without being too bright! They provide so many extra crystals that if you can't understand the directions, simply create your own design and hang them wherever you see fit. As far as hanging and installing it, my husband did it no problems. Self-explanatory if you've doing lighting before. The chains have the twist latch so you don't have to cut chain in order to set it to the length you want, simply twist, move the chain and you're done.
If this is the look you are going for, do not shop around, buy this one and you won't regret it. It changes the whole room!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Product has the quality 5 times its price! Really great! Can't go wrong!
How accurate was the on site description of the product? This product is 27 inches wide (not sure why it's listed as 21 inches in diameter because the width is more accurate in determining its size for a room).
Nice heavyweight chandelier, crystals are actual glass. Finish is flat black.
Beware: the chain is only about a foot long, the wire itself is not much longer (perhaps 2 feet).
I bought this for my basement so the cord length won't be an issue for me, but this could be a dealbreaker for someone decorating a higher ceiling...
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Description states finish: iron. It is in fact flat black.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good for the price
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Aside from color, acurate
Gorgeous chandelier. Highly recommend it! It went up super-easy. Takes some time to hook all the crystals on but totally worth the effort. If you're a stickler on finishes, take note that the clips that hold all the crystals on are brass.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The candle sticks are much darker brown than they appear in the picture. Also, the brackets that hook the crystals to the metal are brass.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality! Much nicer than expected. Great chandelier for the money.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
I was hesitant that the fixture would not look as nice in person as it does in the picture, but it is extremely attractive and an excellent value. Looks like the highend chandeliers found in specialty lighting stores. Crystals are beautiful and carved like high end fixtures. Overall appearance is stunning.
It was hard to assemble (the crystals) and the instructions were very poor. I love the chandelier, but it is much heavier and bigger than it appears in the photo. I have it in my bedroom and it's probably too big for that space. Beautiful, though.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very high quality - looks MUCH more expensive than it was
How accurate was the on site description of the product? More intricate than in picture
I love the light. I am a single mom with really no experience in this area. I was able to put it together, wire it and hang it. My daughter loves it and we now have rainbow reflections in the morning from the lovely crystals.
It took my electrician and his wife 45 minutes to an hour to put the fixture together and hang it. I put the crystals on after they left and that took quite a while. It was all worth it. The chandelier is beautiful over my dining room table. I didn't like the color of the candle covers, so I spray painted them coral, which looks great with the crystals and the black iron. A couple of reviews I read said the little fasteners that attach to the crystals were brass. Mine were silver.
The directions are frustrating as heck, but after a couple of hours you finally get it together and it is stunning. Ordered this with a Parisian ceiling medallion and the effect is gorgeous in my bedroom. People die over it when they come over
This light was one of the simpliest to put together. The black is a standout, however it takes the crystals to make the piece gorgeous. I do wish that the bulbs that were sent along with the fixture were clear rather than frosted. The light from the clear bulbs is much better light.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very Well
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great piece however the crystals make the piece.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
How do I connect the wires from the lamp arms to the wires in the base? Do I connect all of the black and white together? What about the bare wire with the loop, does the loop go around the bottom of the pole?stayathomemomnj on Oct 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
