The light is really nice and seems to be very sturdy. My only complaint/concern is that the light is NOT oil rubbed bronze; it's a copper color. This will work for me because we have copper accents in our kitchen. But if you're looking for oil rubbed bronze - this is not your light.
This ceiling fixture was a huge disappointment as the color of the metal is nowhere close to Bronze. The photo is misleading. The metal trim is the color of fake dark copper maybe from the 60's. I will have to take the metal off and spray paint it with a Rustoleum spray. I liked the design of the fixture and was excited for it's arrival, until I took it out of the box and saw how unbelievably different the color was from the picture. The irony is that I love real copper, just not this pretend copper/bronze.
I wish I had heeded the other reviewers, but i liked the style and look to want to take a chance. I have to agree with other reviewers it is not oil rubbed bronze as advertized. This fixture was for placement over kitchen sink. I had ordered XXXXXXX western bronze 3 light fixture for kitchen, also from O. The colors between these are no where close to consider hanging this over kitchen sink, near the XXXXXX fixture. It is going back.
I first ordered just one so if I didn't like I would not have to return 3, I just got the two others today. The condo was built in 1972 and everything is out dated. Those 3 ceiling lights in the entry hall makes it so much more inviting. Love them and would definitely recommend.
Just received this and mounted it as a replacement for a older Chain-Hung dining area fixture. It looks much more costly than the bargain price I paid for it (<$40) and it's design and construction looks like it was made by skilled metal workers. It appears like the picture a bronzed/copper if there is any such color? To all but the obsessive It looks natural rather than faux when mounted. Although made in China it has Underwriters Laboratory labels and it's construction as far as wiring and fixture quality is of a reasonably high level of quality given it's ridiculously low price. It was packed very well and the instructions and parts necessary to install it were first rate. It comes partially assembled and went together easily. Final mounting was easy. If you've hung any ceiling fixtures before this one should not pose a problem. I put it together and assembled it on the dining room table before to see how it would go up before going up a ladder and juggling parts in mid air. In any case less than an hour and the dining room has a whole new look. As it's on a dimmer switch it has a lot of mood going for it. If you have any hall or bedrooms or dining areas that need a new light fixture you won't go wrong buying a few of these at these low price points..
We always read the reviews on this site, before we place an order. These light fixtures look beautiful in our Condo. Our entryway was dark, as well as our hallway, with flat ceiling light fixtures. We ordered ( 3 ) of these lights and they came in perfect condition to our home. We couldn't be happier, and we both give a two thumbs up!
