This light gives the room an updated look. We have it on a dimmer switch and it looks great! Think it would have been helpful if a content list was included. Didn't find the "diffuser" until ready to toss out the box, which was not that easy to put onto the post. Love the light though.
It arrived very quickly and was very easy to assemble. The different length rods included make it easy to customize how low the light hangs in the room. Looks great !!! The cream shade and frosted glass defuser gives the room a warm glow. Great light fixture!
We got this fixture to be placed above our everyday table in the kitchen. I have installed several light fixtures in many homes, and this one was very easy. Yes, there are a lot of parts, but if you can follow a diagram it is easy. Total assembly and install time was about 30 min. I love the overall look of the fixture (no defective parts in mine) and am extra pleased with the way the diffuser mutes the light, so you don't feel like there's a spotlight on your table. I always use flourescent bulbs where possible, and they work great in this fixture. Couldn't be happier with this purchase!
This was purchased to update my mother's 1950s Cape Cod dining room in New York. It was well packaged and easily installed by my brother. It came with several rods to accommodate different ceiling heights - very clever. It looks very high end whether you are up close or far away. The diffuser is glass not plastic. The brushed nickel 'arms' are of a nice weight and thickness. My favorite part is the bird's eye maple veneer shade. The light is very warm coming through the shade. There are three bulb sockets and gives off very good light using compact fluorescent bulbs. The only negative, the bulbs need to be screwed in from the top. This will be difficult for my mother, but compact fluorescent bulbs last a long time so not such a big deal.
After reading all the reviews i had to order this light fixture, and I LOVE IT!!!!! It looks great over my kitchen island but the lighting isnt to bright. So what !!!!!! Everyone thinks its the BOMB...... It was shipped in a timely manner and I put it together my self and my cousin installed it, We had no problem althought the directions werent all that great........THANKS OVERSTOCK<<<YOU GOT MY VOTE!!!!!
Just installed this in my dining area, It looks fantastice! everyone who has seen it loves it! would have given 5 stars except that some of the down rods did not screw together straight, I ened up using one short one and one long since my table is tall. If I had to use the longer ones I probably would have been ordering replacements.
We're doing some renovations on a budget so I delighted to find this elegant light fixture at such an affordable price. It looks fantastic in our dining room and instantly updated our look. It is particularly beautiful when not lit. When lit, small rectangular shadows are cast onto the shade from the arms underneath - not a big deal but it is noticeable and if you're a perfectionist it may bother you. It's not that the fixture isn't made properly, it's just the design. The shade has a slight pale green cast to it which I really like. It is not a pure white if that's what you're looking for. I found other people's reviews helpful so now I've added by two cents to help other consumers. I wasn't sure about Overstock but now I'm a believer - great buy! Based on positive reviews, I ordered three bar stools yesterday and can't wait to see them.
Unbelievable value! This lighting fixture is worth far more than the price. Be careful though...the glass diffuser is hidden under a separate panel in the large box. I threw it away without realizing it ...almost had to have it replaced.
This was a piece of cake to install and looks stunning once in place. The wood texture is very subtle but be aware that it is a bit more yellow than in the displayed photo. This can be modulated with different types of lightbulbs (cool white or warm white). Overall I was very pleased with the final look and would recommend anyone on the fence about it to go for it.
I have to admit my awesome boyfriend has the patience of a saint... we are talking 4+ hours to put this light up.... I read the other reviews about how difficult this was and figured, oh well we are smart people and we've put up a whole house full of lights & fans... no problem.... ummmm yep that was not the case. Overall it looks great and our breakfast area has been greatly improved... this light looks like some of the other ones I had priced out at $1500+ at a lighting store so to conclude this was a great buy... after it was finally hung up it looks great... just have A LOT of patience and after a few strong drinks you won't even remember how awful it was to put up! I highly recommend this to anyone who wants this look but does not have the money to go to a lighting store.
This Chandelier looks way more expensive than it actually is. Putting it together is quite simple, but I must say it's kinda tricky if you want to experiment with the length of it (hanging down from ceiling). You have to get all the wires in and out in order to add or take off an extension part. It gives a nice ligh and if you have a dimmer you'll love this product even more. The only reason why I gave only 4 out of 5 stars is, that it's a little bit crooked. I hope we'll be able to adjust it though.
This was my first purchase through Overstock and I will be coming back! The lamp arrived in great shape and in the amount of time promised. The packing job was super and insured that the lamp shade made it without a dent. Thrilled with the price and the whole experience!
