This lamp / Chandelier is great. After reading the other reviews, make sure you use LED bulbs, you won't change them in 5 plus years, tighten all the extensions, the won't come loose... lastly when you put in the LED bulbs make them "dim-able" the room will be bright!
Some of the tubes are stripped, so I've been unable to assemble the fixture to hang it. I took the fixture to a local lighting store and it would cost as much to fix the chandelier in order to be able to hang as the whole fixture cost in the first place. Sad.
I was so happy with this light for 6 months. It looked fabulous until the bulbs started burning out...the globes are so fragile that they are extremely hard to take off and on. We broke the first one that we tried to change and even worse, one of the arms became unscrewed and it seems like the nut holding it in place fell into the center sphere and can not be fixed. I am having to uninstall and replace the whole fixture because what is the point of a chandelier if you can't easily replace the bulbs? I'm bummed because the look was great but turned out to be a waste of money
love the look of it but really easy to break the glass circle covers. it even came with an extra one. we've broken 3. so are left without 2 covers. also, we've tried 3 different bulbs and have determined that the fixture will not accommodate a dimmer.
This fixture will only take expensive, low-wattage ceiling fan bulbs. No matter what type of bulbs we tried, they blew out within 5-6 weeks of install. (The fixture was electrician-checked and the problem is not wiring or wattage.) To top that, the bulbs are almost impossible to change, requiring a two-person team. Cool-looking, but it's cheap for a reason.
Love the look for the price. Relatively easy to assemble and all the glitz I hoped for. Pro tip: install the light bulbs before you put on the glass covers. I realized half way through that I hadn't put the bulbs in and got carried away assembling. Now I get to take them off and put in bulbs--not fun. Also, recommend 2 people for placing glass covers on--one to hold the clips and the other to place the glass. You'll pinch your fingers otherwise!
I absolutely love the style and look of this chandelier in our dining room. We get so many complements on it. But, be warned. When it is time to change a light bulb, the fun is over. We broke the globe part the first time trying to change the bulb. Because of the three prong design that holds the globe in place, it is impossible to get off to change the bulb. The globe shattered. Bummer, because we really love this chandelier. But now we have to live with burned out bulbs?
I don't usually write reviews but felt compelled to give anyone thinking of purchasing this lamp some things to consider. First of all this is a great looking chandelier and the price is hard to beat. The bad news is the build quality is poor beyond belief and not to mention the poor design of how the glass globes attach to the fixture, you will crack more than one changing out burnt bulbs. The extension rods and the connecting thread piece dont mesh well at all. The thread on the rods will strip because its almost impossible to hand tighten everything to secure it. I had to wrap teflon tape aroung the threads of the connector just so the rods would catch. I'm replacing my much cheaper chandelier with this one but the build quality of my 10yr old one is hands down day and night better than this one. The only reason I'm giving this chandelier a chance is 1) my return period expired and 2) I'm decorating my home in mid-century style. ******** *******
Purchased this light almost 1 year ago exactly. I was happy with the light, despite the quality not being the best. It looks great and gets a lot of compliments. We have it hanging over our dining room table. I went to dust the light off before a dinner party and the down rod basically fell apart! The light was hanging from the electrical wire until my husband was able to tape the rods together. Apparently the threads were completely worn. Disappointing since the light wasn't exactly cheap. We'll try replacing the rod with the extra pieces, but I don't expect this fixture to last. Thankfully it didn't come crashing down during dinner. I'm only giving this light a fair rating because of the style.
This is a real eye catcher. If you are looking for something to really light up a room, that's modern and edgy; this is it. Installation was pretty simple if you know what your doing. The instructions are pretty terrible. You need 2 people as well, I couldn't imagine doing it alone. The quality is that of anything you would expect from a retail big box store. It looks really great in my dining room. Only thing I'm concerned about is taking the glass off to change a bulb. I think this may need 2 people as well. The arms that hold the glass on are very tight and you need to pull them off to get to the bulb. Other than that I have no complaints. This is a great modern fixture for a great price.

I just got this installed, and it looks great. However, I'm a little worried it is going to fall down due to the flimsy interior metal workings, and I sliced up my hands trying to get the globes on. One of the bulbs didn't work, and I still haven't figured out how to get the globe off without breaking it to replace the bulb. If anyone has any tips, it'd be great to hear them. I tried calling the number on the slip inside to see if they had ideas, but they just said "be careful". So I have a cool looking fixture with one bulb that doesn't work and bloody hands. But all in all, I guess it is worth the price.

I was very please with the final purchase of this chandelier, although I had to return the first fixture because two of the lights did not work. Overstock was great at handling the return and sending a replacement. Keep in mind the bulbs used need to be a skinny style because of the size of the glass globe.

I like it. It looks good over the table. The lightbulbs give off good white light, not yellow. Was easy to install. No broken pieces. Looks really hi tech. Not a traditional light.

This light fixture is very different and goes well with my cathedral ceiling. I ordered it and that's when the fun began!! First, the wrong model was sent, one with 15 bulbs, not 9 as ordered; it was swiftly replaced with the correct one, but the promised sloped ceiling adjustment was not included even though it said it was in the product description. So then after MANY calls to both the distributor and to Overstock, the part was finally delivered two weeks later. It was Overstock that came through with the part that could have been included in the package in first place! The distributor, never did send the part even though they kept saying it was in the mail!! It's finally up and looks great.
