I bought this chandelier for the living room in our new apartment. Overall, we are very happy with our purchase... But there are some things I would like to point out that should be taken into consideration before purchasing this product: 1) The quality of the paint coating on this chandelier is a 7 of 10, therefor is highly vulnerable to knicks and scratches while installing, so handle with care. 2) The chain by which it hangs is about 7 feet long, so if you have a standard apartment like me, your ceiling will be 9-11 feet high. I had to discard the chain altogether and hang it directly from the ceiling. 3) The Edison bulbs look amazing when turned on, but if you're looking for a chandelier that gives out a ton of light, this is definitely not the way to go. I would give it a 5 of 10 rating on actual light emitted. Good thing we have two table lamps in the living room that provide additional lighting. I hope this helps.... Happy shopping!

This chandelier is much less impressive when viewed up close. Make sure you have no doubts before buying, as you can only return unopened product. That was completely my oversight, but still holds very little common sense when it is an item to be installed in your home. I purchased for use over the dining room table, but it is going into a room in the basement or into a yard sale. I wouldn't want guests looking at this during a meal. Very disappointing.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Bronze is a warm dark brown. This is a cheap black powder coated finish and scratches too easily.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Below average quality and poor finish.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Finish description is very misleading
No sooner did I get this light installed it started falling apart. 2 of the 9 light sockets came apart from the bar and were just dangling with the light bulb attached. I tried to screw them back in but that was the problem, the screw was flush with the bar and left no thread to screw into. The only thing that did get screwed was me because it is going to be a huge pain to dismantle this thing and send it back. I thought this light would be good price at $*** but it ended up not even being worth that.
I absolutely love this chandelier! It's the perfect vintage industrial look I was going for. Better than the chandelier though was the customer service I received from Overstock! When the chandelier arrived, one of the lightbulbs had broken. I called the customer service number and spoke with a representative within one minute. She was very apologetic and super helpful. With no questions asked, she put in a request to have a new bulb sent to me. They had a little trouble finding the bulb, but I got a personal email almost everyday from someone who was just letting me know the status of the order. This was my first time ordering from Overstock, but I was extremely impressed with the service and will definitely be ordering from them again!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good quality. the only problem i noticed was that one of the stickers stating the Watts peeled off a bit of the paint when i took it off. I'd recommend using an alcohol pad to help release the adhesive.
I love this fixture! It looks great in my 1920's craftsman home - it really feels period appropriate. I've been wanting a chandelier with Edison bulbs and have looked everywhere. Glad I found this one on Overstock. The price was great, shipping was fast and I'm very satisfied with the quality of the product. Did have one bulb broken in shipping, but Overstock is sending a replacement (great customer service!). I think it puts out a lot of light, I actually need to put a dimmer on the switch, cause its a little too bright. I've had no problem with the finish scratching, as others have complained about.

The fixture is gorgeous. It is a focal point above my dining table and is so unique. It comes with a lengthy chain so you can adjust to the desired h eight before installation. It was easy to install, however two of the Edison bulbs wer e broken shipment . Overstock replaced those in a few days.

The light looks great. It is black in color. Hangs low on my low ceiling, so only used one chain link, and is appropriate height above my table. Only thing I didn't consider, since the bulbs are facing downward, and the light is big so hangs low, it puts out a good deal of heat. We keep it on a very dim setting bc it gets very hot. It not only makes the room and dinner hot, but I had to get electrician to change dimmer switch since it was hot to the touch when first installed.
I bought this 1.5 years ago and still love it and have never have any issues with it. We didn't use the change and it sits over our dining room table. It stands out and everyone always talks about it when they come over. A couple Edison light bulbs weren't working when we received and Overstock immediately sent new ones and I've never had to change them in almost 2 years. I do have it on a dimmer so that helps. I love this chandelier and it is exactly what we need to spice up the dining room.
I was looking for a new dining room chadalier, and this was perfect! It looks like something from Restoration Hardware at 1/10 the price. It is much larger than I had imagined, which was a good thing. It fits perfectly over my table, and the Edison style bulbs are gorgeous!
I have received so many positive comments on the new light fixture. It is a great value. I love the bulbs. I just received a lighting catalog from a trendy store and similar light fixtures were $1,600. It is very hip and trendy, but looks like its been there forever.
My husband just installed and it looks awesome. I got this at a great price, item was on sale and I used a coupon. I don't think the quality is in line with regular price but just right for the price I paid. Don't get me wrong, it's really nice but my suggestion is don't pay regular full price. It looks great in my living room because we have high ceilings. We had to cut a significant amount of chain off because it was really long. The size and dimensions listed on the site are spot on. The only thing I have to say like the other reviews is that the color description is WRONG. This fixture does NOT have a bronze finish. It is simply factory painted black, which I didn't mind. Unlike other reviews we didn't have a problem with the paint chipping off or easily getting damaged. I love that it came with the bulbs. Shipped fast and was packaged nicely, nothing arrived damaged. Overall I'm very happy, the look of it is very versatile. I would recommend to a friend (when on sale).
If you do not have vaulted ceilings, this light is not for you. It is about 3 feet long from the base that you put on the ceiling to the bottom of the light sockets. I had an electrician hang it over my dining room table without any chain links and it was only about 1 foot off the table. It is also very big around, probably three feet diameter, as big as the width of a standard table.
I was debating over this lighting and the Rae 6 light chandalier, since I needed something big enough for a huge living room. I chose this one, since it went better with my room's overall theme, and I couln't be happier. It is big enough, simple, unique, and gave me more ideas how to decorate rest of the room.
Bought this because it looked like one that I was swooning over at a high end furniture store. I wasn't trying to pay high end prices so I got this. It's been 2 years and it's still awesome. It's the first thing that people notice in my house and I get nothing but compliments.
Love this chandelier! I've these more than once and they really do add style and impact to a room. Looks more expensive than the price. If you want to be more energy efficient you could swap out the bulbs that come with it for LED edison bulbs.
