I would definitely rate this item as cheap! The lining around the outside screen was not even and would not stay in place. The bottom of the shade is also plastic and gives the lamp a cheap appearance. I had read the previous reviews and decided to purchase this anyway. MISTAKE! This product looks cool in the pictures. However in person, it looks terrible!

This chandelier gives off a really warm glow. And although I have (3) 60 watt bulbs in it, the light is not too bright. The height on the shade is about 8inches high. I did not want a flashy light to dominate the table and this light does the job. The shade is delicate though, as my electrician left fingernail prints in the shade, which although are not visible when the light is on, annoy me when the light is off. So make sure you keep the plastic on the shade until is completely isntalled. We did have trouble making the shade look level with the pole (once attached to the pole, the shade was titled to the side), hence why the electrician was putting pressure on the shade, attempting to straighten it out.

This light fixture fits perfectly in my home office. It would look great in a bedroom or dining room too. The only caveat that I have is that my electrician had difficulty with the poles. He indicated that he had to do some manipulations because the pole would not stay in the ceiling plate. He got it to work though and it looks great.

Love this light fixture! Attractive lighting that doesn't break the bank is hard to find, but this fixture fits the bill. We used it in our traditional home with a modern flair and it totally works. Highly recommend, it looks as good in real life as it does on the photo. One caution: if you are looking for something really bright, this probably isn't for you, because of the diffuser & shade color it casts a soft yellow light, even with all three maximum wattage bulbs. This can be mounted as a pendant or a ceiling mount, we did it ceiling mount because of the ceiling height in our office and it looks great!
Thank you for your question firecvracker. The Simple Elegance 3-light Chrome Pendant and Ceiling Mount Chandelier will not work on a slanted ceiling. Have a great day. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 15, 2014
