I followed the lighting guide Overstock has on their website when I purchased this shade. My room was 10' x 12' so I needed a shade around 22" wide. This light looked so huge when I pulled it out of the box, however, once up in our dining room, it did fit the space. The glass diffuser plate is not as wide as the shade so you can see the silver lining but not the light bulbs. I love that you are able to use three bulbs with this light, it really helps brighten up the room. Installation was easy, just make certain you hook up the light switch wire correctly. I searched many websites looking for a simple and clean looking drum light for a good price and I am happy with my purchase. My husband even loves it.

I'm reserved to say this lamp is an unbelievable value for the price, because it infers it's lower quality - it isn't - it's terrific quality. What I like: . Setting - this could work well in both a traditional formal dining room (which is our application), or look very attractive in a contemporary dining area. It's simple, no crazy patterns or angles, or exposed lights. . Wattage - Has three bulbs, plenty of light if you need it. Put it on a dimmer switch like we did and provides a nice soft evening glow. . Lamp Wiring & Metal Quality - Well constructed, not flimsy. . Outer Shade - Very elegant, soft muted color. Fabric is nice quality. . Inner Shade - Silver foil lining. Provides nice even glow on ceiling. When sitting and looking up, you see mostly the glass diffuser, but modest amount of silver foil lining is exposed that gives a silver soft shimmer. Easy on the eyes. . Diffuser - Many chandys comes with cheap plastic diffuser - this comes with a heavy weight frosted glass diffuser. Again, very easy on the eyes. . Overall - Extremely pleased - the price of $148 is very misleading. In Crate & Barrel, they are selling a smaller shade, plastic diffuser, no silver lining for approx. $350. When I say this lamp is a GREAT value, you'll love it when you see it.
A couple of things to think about before you choose this one. Will it bug you that the shade is opaque? The silver lining is cool when it catches your eye while you're seated at the table. But NO light shines through the shade. If that's what you want, perfect! But for me it's a little weird. I'm keeping the lamp for now. The light looks even more modern than a comparable choice with a translucent shade. Also, the light has a more blue tint to it because of the silver lining. Like I said, just something to think about. The quality was very good for the price, and the size was quite generous for the price. Plenty big enough without over-powering an average size dining room table for 6.
We were looking for a simple drum light, nothing too fancy. This light is perfect over our new kitchen table. The silver lining is subtle and a nice little surprise! It looks more expensive then it was. We are very happy with this purchase. Our electrician had no issues with the installation which was great.
I have really enjoyed having this Silver Foil Lined Pendant in my new home. I have it over my dining/kitchen table - its so elegant. Love the fact that there is a cover to the bulbs on the bottom of the light fixture - it gives a soft glow and with the silver lining....super nice. I have purchased several other items from Overstock since this purchase and have been very pleased.
This light looks great but we had an electrician install. Went up very quickly. We are using 3 - 60 watt bulbs. 3- 100 Watt would seem TOO bright. We have looked at other lighting even up to $500 but this light was exactly what I wanted for less than ****. What it looked like on line is what we received. Would recommend!
I received my package on time and not damaged. It only took 30 minutes to assemble and hang the chandelier. I am very happy with the way it looks overall. Just wanted to point out couple of issues: the lining prevents light from shinning through due to the internal silver paper lining, so if you are looking for a more warm glowing traditional look seen with all fabric shades this is not your drum chandelier. Since I was looking for a more modern look I am ok with the inner paper shade. The metal pole pieces are slightly bent and we had to play around so the chandelier would not hang crooked. The inner glass also hangs slightly crooked on the inside but not as visible from the outside. Cannot adjust the glass but decided to live with it. These may be normal issues with drum chandelier but just wanted to farely share my review.
THIS LIGHT IS LARGE AND MODERN YET VERY CLASSY. THE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT AND INSTALL IS VERY EASY. THE PRICE FOR THIS LIGHT WAS UNREAL. OTHER STORE'S ARE ATLEAST &500 - $700. PUT IN MY DINING ROOM ABOVE MY MARBLE TABLE LOOKS SO GOOD. EVERYONE WHO COMES OVER LOVES THIS LIGHT. THE SILVER LINING REALLY SET'S IT OFF. CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS LIGHT!!!
I wanted an overhead fixture for a guest bedroom that was modern and simple, yet stylish. This fixture completely fits the bill and for the price it can't be beat. I couldn't be happier with this product! Another great purchase from Overstock!
Replaced 20 year fixture in dining room and this pendant works beautifully. The silver lining creates a quiet ambiance throughout the room and the glass diffuser allows just the amount of light to shine down on the table, no light glaring in your eyes if you look up. Electrician easily installed fixture in less than 20 minutes.
I should have listened to other reviews before purchasing but the shade has a grey cast to it. Will work great if you have more cool tones. It says the shade is cream but it's definitely on the grey side. I returned it for that reason otherwise I loved the light fixture.
