Because I have gold highlights in other places in the room where this hangs, I wish I had considered what "charcoal" would look like. In this case it is as if silver highlights have been brushed on over a black base. It looks nice as a finish (and I didn't detract stars for that) but wasn't what I wanted. The two stars come from the fact that the metal is quite flexible and I could see several of the arms were crooked immediately out of the box. We have had to work really hard to get them all even so that the fixture doesn't look like it is tilted toward one side. Despite our numerous attempts one light will always look a little off because the ball of metal that sits beneath the light base and attaches it to the arm is actually thicker, and unevenly so at that, than all the others. I have had wonderful experiences with purchases in the past, but this one was a disappointment.
It took us a couple of months to decide on which fixture to purchase. This one is exactly the right one. Enough width & height not to look lost in a large space yet not overwhelmingly large. We are happy with it because it is classic and not trendy. Expect to be just as happy years from now.
This is hanging in my kitchen and looks really good. This is a great product.
