Thankfully the chandelier still matches my dining room and that I was not depending on it being a creamy colored fixture as the picture seems to portray. When I opened the box I found a differently colored chandelier with a base color that is very bright white with distressed gold markings throughout.
The two issues I have here are of course that the picture displays a darker white than what it actually is when it arrives at your door and the second issue is that there were not as many gold looking distress markings as the picture visually states.
It worked out fine though because the white seems to match to color of my ceiling and to my likings, there are still enough distress markings to be satisfied with. Also, my husband put it together, removed the old chandelier, and installed the new one all within 30 minutes.....which that isn't really saying much because he is pretty amazing.....and sexy.
Anyhow, the quality is superb and it does look like something you would find at Restoration Hardware so I am still happy with it but Overstock really needs to modify the display picture to accurately depicte it's true colors.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The picture is VERY misleading.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent Quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Great except for the color.
I had been looking at this light for months, because it is wide but not tall. I have 8 foot ceilings and was ready to have to modify by leaving pieces out to make it not hang too low. I used just one link of the chain. It's in our bedroom above the bed, but if I had to walk under it, I would have shortened it. I am not an electrician and had never hard wired a light in (I'm handy and brave), but youtube helped and I did it no problem. You do need someone to hold the light up for you while you are twisting wires, though. 6 bulbs is a lot of light and I have 25 watt bulbs in...might install a dimmer on the switch. Took about 10 minutes to install, not including unpack and taking down the old ceiling fan.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It looks cream, but it's a white, flat finish.

The product quality is fine, the overall look is 'do-able' however I'm not pleased with the amount of gold on the item. If I'd known it was gold I probably would have avoided the purchase. As it is, I'll end up having it lacquered in a high gloss to make it usable in my home.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color of white was good, however there was entirely too much gold on it... it didn't resemble distressing b/c of the quanitiy.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was as I expected.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Ok, however it needed to be more specific as I didn't think it was gold distressing.
