I love this fixture, and it works great in my stairwell. However, the lowest hanging fluted shape fixture is too narrow at the bulb base to actually fit the bulb. The fixture came with three Edison style bulbs, but I had to purchase a light bulb base extender and then paint it an antique brass color in order to use the fluted fixture. Still looks and works great, but there's an obvious flaw to the design. Just be aware of that going in! All in all, I'm very happy, just still scratching my head a little on the design flaw...
I love the style. It looks great over my breakfast table. I also liked the unique shaped light bulbs that came with the chandler. The only thing is that these light bulbs are low in wattage which doesn't provide sufficient light at night. I switched to CFL light bulbs.
I am very pleased with my recent purchase of the Renate Trio Chandelier. It looks beautiful in my dining room. We were concerned at first about the length but then realized that we could adjust the length of each light. The only thing I wish I could change is that you can see the wires through the chains and because it uses 40 watt bulbs it is a little bit dim. However, I am very pleased with how this light fixture looks in my dining room - different from the traditional chandelier or orb lighting. I definitely recommend!
Fairly easy to install. Bought two sets for my kitchen. There was a few problems. On one of them the bolt that holds it in the ceiling and the nut were different sizes. Had to go to the hardware store to buy the right nut. Also, as mentioned in other posts, the flute fixture is too small for the light bulbs that are included. Had to go buy a skinnier light bulb. All in all, we love the look of these fixtures, and get lots of compliments.
Like the other reviewers - I love the look of this piece and think it adds a lot of charm to my kitchen. The third build didn't fit, as I expected, but I ordered a bulb extender from Home Depot and that does the trick! Also, my fixture came missing a part, but, as usual, Overstock came through and send me a replacement. What a pleasure!
We purchased this to hang over our kitchen island. I do like the fixture but it is much heavier looking in person than online. The cages are more black than dark bronze; the cages are thicker than they appear online. Pro: you can adjust the height of each pendant. Con: standard 8' ceilings don't give much leeway in the length. It would be great to have a 3" rod to provide that variance. Pro: cool Edison bulbs are included. Con: there is no way to squeeze the provided bulb into the trumpet fixture. We bought a different bulb to accommodate this flaw. We'll keep this fixture but had I seen it in person I may not have purchased.
