Glad that I read the reviews before buying this chandelier. It did take every bit of 2 hours to put this together and I was glad that I read that it was European design because I went ahead and bought the extra components to hang it. It is quite beautiful and well worth the time and energy. I did not have any issues with the wire color and was able to assemble easily based on product instructions and the pictures.
I just received this and have not had it installed yet. What I can say is first, the wiring is clear, not black as the previous reviews have claimed. The shade and crystals are beautiful, and look well made. I am looking forward to giving a full review after it is installed and hanging. I am hoping the installation isn't as difficult as some of the reviews have claimed. I will let you know......
so happy w/this chandelier! the ONLY complaint is that the cap wasn't big enough, as mentioned in some of the other reviews. but went to Home Depot and got one in brushed nickel - works just as well. The cord that came w/it wasn't black, like in some of the reviews, so that was a relief. And my husband and I were able to install it together, no problems. It's fancy yet not over the top and is exactly what I was looking for! OH, it came w/the bulbs too - so you don't need to buy them (like some reviews also said). I love OVERSTOCK!! THANK YOU!
I really fell in love with this chandelier and was not disappointed in the style of it. It looks amazing! It is perfect in our master bedroom with 10 ft tray ceiling. It really is a stunner. I only gave it 4 stars because the wiring is aluminum (not copper) and the fixture needs a molding/medallion because it is smaller then a standard U.S. light box. Easy to fix with a trip to ***** *****, but still kind of pain that it is not ready to install without some modification. Really lovely piece, I would buy it again.
This chandelier is beautiful! I am very glad I purchased it! Unlike several reviews I read before I purchased, mine did have a clear cord! One of the pendants were chipped and a couple scratched but I am going to let the company know. Hopefully they send me replacement ones. If not I would still recommend the product, just wish to change the pendants out. Very nice and gorgeous for the price!
For this price you can't find anything as nice in local stores and I live in Houston where every store is! I do have to say *** carries a similar chandelier with crystals but I already have that one above my kitchen dining table, love that this one is similar but different!
I bought this chandelier with intentions of installing it in my bedroom with a normal height ceiling. I removed the chain all together and used it as a ceiling mount chandelier. My husband is 6 ft. tall and his head hit it but I installed it over our bed anyway where he does not walk. I have a great picture of it installed, I wish I could post the photo. It took me 45 min to unwrap the beautifully wrapped crystals, nothing was broken or missing. It took my husband an hour to install it. Yes it is European and you do have to run out to get a larger canopy. No the cord is not black, mine was white/silver. I just love it. I did put on a dimmer switch (it's very bright) which my husband installed in 10 min. You need to buy this for your bedroom, den or dining room. Oh one more thing, the width of of drum shade is 22 inches, larger than I expected.
this is an awesome chandelier for the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can take the assembly directions and throw them away, as they are generic and useless. I went back to the picture online and tried to copy the look of where things went. But, I would certainly purchase it. It is QUITE LOVELY AND A GREAT TRANSITIONAL PICECE!!!!!
This high impact light fixture is an unbelievable value, well worth the little 'quirks' involved during installation. As mentioned frequently by other reviewers the included bracket needs to be replaced with a standard US version. Also the canopy cover is too small for the US bracket, so either a larger canopy - or in my case a ceiling medallion - needs to be on hand. I love the look of the ceiling medallion and am actually happier with this look than I would have been otherwise. This chandelier is substantially less expensive than many of similar size and quality. Very, very pleased with this purchase!
I LOVE this light! Definitely a reasonable price for a gorgeous fixture. It arrived fast, my electrician had no problems installing it and I haven't had any issues with it in the 3 months it's been up. It gets compliments from my guests all the time! Great purchase.
