I paired this with two mini pendants in a guest suite that has dormers. It's a great looking lamp; the edge has a narrow trim that's chocolate brown/almost black looking. This trim is very thin and not overbearing. The shade fabric has a very slight sheen to it. Not disco ball shiny, but just enough to look elegant in the right space. With the mini pendants in other areas of the room you get a pulled together, coordinated look.
Bought this when we renovated our breakfast area-looks great against grey paint and white trim. The piece of metal that holds the shade wasn't together when it arrived-but we got creative and fixed it. Overall recommend this if you want a high quality looking fixture for a good price.
I built a house with gray tones and this fit my design perfect. I put in entry way with a black door and it looks great! The plastic piece on the bottom with attract dust so you may need to clean frequently it's like a magnate but I also just built the house so dust is still settling. I love the light and for the price it has a rich look to it. Just make sure when you hang to position the seam so it is not seen from common areas.
This is a beautiful pendant light, and adds a luxe look to our sitting area. It was shipped very well protected, but had a slight bend in one of the inside bars, which made it slightly off balance. We were able to fix it but couldn't attach the bottom white panel. I just didn't want the hassle of shipping it back. Otherwise it is well made; the stainless steel has a brushed finish. The shade is a shimmery silver with black corded trim. The chain is adjustable to just about any length. We are very happy with this product outside of the minor glitch. It is the first thing to get complimented on in our new sitting room.
After reading the mixed reviews, I was hesitant to order this light, but the look was right so we took a chance. It arrived well packaged and in a timely fashion. Upon opening, we were disappointed to find that the shade had a large pucker - not a dent from damage, but more a pucker where the material didn't sit right, about 5 inches in size, so it rendered the fixture unusable. It's too bad, because the design and style are nice and the color would have been perfect, but we ended up going with another light. From the other reviews, it sounds like it may be hit or miss as far as defects. On another note, the light is quite large, bigger than your standard drum light, so if your space is smallish, it may not be the right proportions for you...it would have looked like a flying saucer in our eating space, but in a larger room, it could be quite elegant.
I was hesitant to purchase based on other reviews but took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. Was easy to assemble. Took the advise of someone and threaded the wire every other link to help it hang straight. Good tip. No problems with the trim being uneven. The shade appears very much like the picture. When lit though it has a sort of tan tint. It is not obnoxiously bright either. Just the right amount of diffused light but not too dim. I was thinking I would need a dimmer before installation but no need. This lamp is big. I mean really big. Think twice if you have a low ceiling or small space. I have a 48" square table and was afraid it would overpower it but its ok.
Based on some of the previous reviews about the contrasting fabric detailing being misaligned or crooked on the shade and the diffuser not sitting flat, I almost didn't order this light. Mine showed up in perfect condition, so either I got lucky or the manufacturer's quality control has improved. The shade looks a little different in person than online, but perhaps even better. It's a woven fabric that has an overall visual effect of light gray and in direct light, a bit silvery, which is very pretty. I would definitely recommend this light.
