Very attractive chandelier although the quality it a bit below expectations thus the 4 star rating. Installation is easy although the globes are difficult to adjust and never look exactly right. The nickel has a thin plastic coating which detracts from the appearance when viewed up close. Despite these issues I receive a lot of compliments and am generally happy with this purchase.
I'm in the process of getting ready to sell my house and purchased this chandelier to replace the one that the builders put in. I am very pleased with the quality, style, and lighting that this chandelier provides. It provides a modern look to my dining room - it's a very nice addition.
My wife and I bought this chandelier mostly because of the aesthetics. The brushed nickel finish looks great with just about any decor, especially those looking for a modern/contemporary look in their home. Assembly is pretty straight forward, rotate the arms into position, and hang. I had to remove a few links to adjust the height. The frosted globes are a nice touch; they definitely keep people seating below from being blinded. Having the light deflected up also helps to provide a softer illumination in the dining room.
We loved this chandelier. We needed something contemporary to go with our decor and this chandelier fit the bill. It arrived in perfect condition. Came with a basic diagram of the fixture as far as installation manual is concerned. Did not require professional installation, was relatively easy to install(in spite of our inexperience with such things). Took about 15 mins! Came with a very long chain that could be easily sized. It looks very nice during day time too (when the lights are not on). Has a nice, soft, glow like light. Love it!
I was looking for a chandelier that was both contemporary and had sufficient light for my somewhat dark dining room. This light is perfect! Looks just like the photo. I had an electrician who was doing other work in my house install it, so I don't know how easy or hard it was to install. Everyone who has seen it loves it too!
This chandelier is absolutely stunning in our dining room. It can look traditional or contemporary depending on the surrounding decor. It is of very good quality and arrived promptly and was very easy to put together. Overall great product! Thanks Overstock!
While installing my husband had to "tweak" a few things however the chandelier looks great in our dining area. We like the modern clean lines and the fact that the lights aim upward instead of down into our faces. The product arrived in speedy time with all parts included. The quality is good (not excellent) and will fulfill our need until we move on to something else. We are getting compliments on the look and how it fits into our decor so much better than what we previously had.
It shows off very nicely in my dinning room. the only problem we had was hanging it. It can be a little difficult. My husband can usually hang a light fixture or ceiling fan by himself, but this required two people for sure. Some of the glass light pendents didn't fit correct, but we made it work.
I was a bit nervous about installing this chandelier after reading some of the other reviews. But, it turned out to be really easy. Throw out the directions, they're worthless. Instead, once you realize that the entire chandelier screws together on a central rod, you can easily loosen the appropriate pieces and get everything lined up correctly before re-tightening. Once I did that, I found it to be plenty sturdy and solid. The chandelier looks great in our kitchen and seems like a terrific find for the price.
This chandalier completely makes our dining room. The light produced from the white globes pointing up really brightens the room. It has a sleek contemporary look that we were looking for. It was a little difficult to put together (so says my brother in law) as other reviewers have pointed out, but overall a great buy.
Like the picture, this fixture looks good. As others said, the instructions are limited, but it's nothing complicated. The only draw-back I can come up with really is it's completely assembled by hand, each of the bars holding a light, center pieces etc, IE it's not as sturdy a piece as say a more high-end unit (it's very light weight), but you're getting it for less, and once it's up all you really see is the finished result. Also, with 5 bulbs it puts out a lot of light which is nice.
This product is very nice looking, but it doesn't look exactly like the picture. I am going to try and adjust it still, so we'll see, but the lights are further out than in the picture. It's still very pretty and looks good for the price. And one of the pieces was damaged and the company was very helpful and quick in responding.
