This light looks good except for a grounding wire that is bright copper and runs outside of the cord totally cheap and horrible looking, had to paint it to make it less noticeable. But the MAJOR issue with this light was dealing with the glass inset one of the welded metal bars to hold the glass was facing completely the wrong way there are four all supposing to make a channel to hold the glass on the bottom and clips are on the top. One of the bottom channels was welded on its side completely blocking the glass from being inset so after much debate(wether to send this back and deal with all that entails ) we opted to rip the three spot weld out and silicon the glass in place. Lucky for us that worked without damage but man let me tell you I am done with buying and being sent defective items. This was made in china like most things are but for the price you'd think someone would run better quality control. If but for those two MAJOR issues I would have loved this light and given 5 stars! If you're ordering hope you get a good one.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looks as pictured except for copper wire.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor.
When it came time to hang this light I found that each of the cubes were a little 'out of square'. One slanted one way and the other did the same. It was very evident due to the verticals of the structure. I returned it and ordered another. The next one was a little 'wonky' also but I rotated the two cubes and eventually they lined up perfectly. I have a large entry (12' ceiling) and the fixture fit the space very well - so it might be overwhelming for a smaller space (just check the dimensions). I have had many comments on the fixture - it's very attactive.

It is too bad that this fixture is so poorly manufactured because the design is quite nice. It came well secured in shipping wrap and padding, so it was obviously placed in the box already deformed. One of the solder seams was completely snapped and both the outer cage and the light "box" we're both tilted and torqued. I don't know why any manufacturer would send out a product like this. Very disappointing but Overstock took it back for a credit so aside from the wasted time it wasn't a bad experience. Just save yourself the hassle and choose another light fixture. Based on other reviewed the quality of this product is bad across the board.
We hung this in our 2-story open foyer and the main issue we're having is that the outer and inner frames rotate independent of each other so that it doesn't stay squared. We're going to try putting some electrical tape or something on it to keep it from rotating. I also wish there were glass on the bottom so that you aren't looking at the light bulbs from below. We may try adding similar colored plexiglass to the bottom. I like it enough to try and make it work.
