Love the look of the light. It really updated our space. Beware, instructions are not great. This was our first time installing a light fixture had to take it down 3 times and fix/add something. Recommend sizing the chain and weaving the wire in prior to hanging (maybe most people already know this, but we didn't). One other note, the light is quite dim, even without the diffuser. Very little light comes through the actual shade, we have left the diffuser off to get more light. We only have 60w bulbs in there, says it can take up to 100w, so maybe that may help too. But all in all, great piece over our kitchen table to customize the space.
I must have looked at hundreds of light fixtures before deciding on this one. The style is not something I would have normally chose but I am very glad that I did. It matches my newly remodeled kitchen so well and provides the perfect amount of light. I particularly like that the light is filtered by the base as direct light is very bothersome to my eyes. This fixture hangs over the Monarch Kitchen Island that I also purchased from Overstock. The combo of these two pieces looks fantastics and I have received many compliments on both.
Great fixture, great price. I bought this light for over my kitchen table and was afraid it was going to be on the gray side, but it was not. The colors are a mixture of brown and tan tones with a bit of black and the hardware is also a brown tone. Matches my kitchen perfectly and gives off a lot of light, but I do have it on a dimmer also.
Beautiful light that looks nice in our formal dining room. It's sleek and simple yet pops in the room. My only markdown is that a couple screws could be a little longer to facilitate easier installation/more secure installation. We have a little medallion on the ceiling and had to modify light installation parts so that it would work. Looks great!
Easy to order, came promptly and was packaged securely. Looks exactly as the photo did on the website and of course, was easy to install. The texture of the shade is very nice, subtle, and has an almost silk-like sheen, though not shiney, but subtle. Gives it an elegant feel. I'd order it again. Very good quality for the money.
I did like this product however the dimensions are VERY misleading. It was supposed to be 21" by 22". Well, it is - sorta. The lamp shade itself is only 9" tall (or a little less). I believe the dimensions are based on the three balls on the chain. It looked so small over my kitchen table. I have a long rectangular table and wanted a light over it. But the short shade looked horrible. Now I know to really dig deeper for the true dimensions. Overall, the shade was very nice and looked like it was decent quality for the price.
I am in love with this light fixture! It is very large and substantial, while not being overpowering to a room. It is styled very classically with great neutral colors that are more on the dark side. It is hanging over my kitchen table. It was relatively easy to install -- not too many pieces. It hangs evenly. One trick to save yourself some headache if the chain that won't hang flat -- thread the cord through every other link of chain, versus every link. As others have said, the diffuser does not lay flat -- this doesn't bother me and is really not noticeable unless you study it closely. Also, be aware that, with the open top of the fixture and a diffuser on the bottom, more light shines upward onto the ceiling than down onto the table. This fixture produces a much more soft, dim light than the fixture I had above the table before. This might bother some. I have three 60-watt bulbs in there now -- maybe 100-watts would be better if one wants more light. 40-watts would be definitely too dim. Overall, this light fixture is just flat-out beautiful. It looks EXACTLY like the picture -- color and everything. Love it!
I am TOTALLY a review reader. I read, and re-read the reviews on this light. I "thought" it was just what I was looking for, but got caught up in a few points of other reviews (quality and exact color). I was also reluctant due to the fact that I would have to pay to send it back if I did not like it. Well, then I got a coupon AND these were quickly selling out so I decided to go for it. I am SO GLAD because I LOVE IT!! My husband installed it today (which was simple). It works and is absolutely stunning over our big round craftsman-style kitchen table. The shade is one that compliments my white kitchen (with Venetian bronze hardware and faucet, and gray and black accents) but I can see how it could pull brown (more of a taupe brown) too. The shade is very multi-dimensional....has black, taupe, gray, and a ever-so-slightly metallic touch to it. The actual drum is very large and dramatic and the knob-y rod that it hangs from has just enough detail to be perfect. I call it simple elegance. Very unique yet not trendy or extravagant. LOVE.
