Great alternative to the higher priced PB version. While it was time consuming to unwrap each individual crystal ball, it was very nice that they were packaged so securely and in perfect condition. We bought a ceiling anchor to swag the chandelier over about two feet to be centered over our bed. It looks great! Definitely recommend.
Wow when they said you had to put it together they meant it. My husband came to my rescue and this chandelier is so pretty. I love it. It got 4 stars because of having to put it together (including the wiring). That part blew me away! But the end effect is awesome it really is very pretty.
I received my chandelier within a week and am very pleased with it. My dining room is 8x10 and I had a huge one in there. So, as other have said - it is a little small. But it is very pretty. It did take a while to get all those baubles on though. Kind of difficult. They go on kind of like a key ring, a little difficult to maneuver. All in all, I am happy with it.
This chandelier is on the small side, but it's perfect for my small foyer: sparkly and bright but not overwhelming. I expected the finish on it to be an aged coppery bronze, but the actual finish is a mixture of a very muted brown and black. Up close, I think the finish looks a bit cheap. However, once it is put together and hung from the ceiling, it looks quite good. No one will notice the finish unless they decide to break out the magnifying glass and do a close inspection. It wasn't difficult to assemble, but it *was* time consuming. You have to attach all of those pretty glass balls one at time as well as attach all the candelabra arms and scroll work. Still, you can't beat the price for this chandelier. It looks far more expensive that it is! Also, the specs say it uses five 60-watt bulbs. I found that *way* too bright for my foyer. I think it looks better with either 25-watt or 40-watt bulbs. I don't want people to be blinded when they look at it. I want them to notice the the pretty bling on it because those glass balls are what really take this chandelier from so-so to beautiful.
This chandelier has a paint treatment that makes it look like an aged brass which is why I chose it for my client's bedroom - it picks up the nailheads in the tufted headboard and hardware on her case goods. It was super easy to put together and was very well packed to protect everything. The client and I were very pleased with the purchase.
I have a small dining room so the size was perfect. easy to put together and hang. I am a girl and I did this job myself. instructions are very good. this item sells for $110.00 more from that overpriced catalog store. I rather have Overstock than overprice anyday!
I read all the reviews, and decided that, since the positive ones outweighed the negative ones, it was probably a good buy. But it is cheap and a disappointment. One of the arms arrived bent, and I emailed the company for a replacement but almost 2 weeks later, it has not yet arrived. We put it together anyway--assembly and installation WERE easy. But the chandelier isn't centered around the central bar, the arms are not straight, and the whole thing looks crooked, not because of how it is hung, but because it is poorly manufactured. I still love the design of this piece, and seriously wish I would have coughed up the extra $130 for the ***** version.
Yes I too was watching forever for this light to go on sale from xxxx. Since it never does and shipping would be an additional $50, I decided to take a chance and buy it from O. The light is beautiful. It looks so nice in my kitchen. The light is not a huge light so I am not sure how it would be in a foyer or large room, but it is the perfect size in my kitchen above my table. I bought frosted candlelight bulbs which I think look really nice with it. The installation? Yes it wasnt easy according to my bro-in-law who is very much the handy man. The instructions didnt seem to be a problem. The project was somewhat time consuming. The wiring and all the glass bulbs just took some time. I am very happy with my purchase and saved a great deal than if I would have bought it from xxxxx.
This chandalier is gorgeous over my dining room table! It's a little smaller than traditional dining room chandaliers but makes a big statement. I even used 40 watt bulbs on a dimmer and it still puts off a lot of light. The light is lovely reflected off the crystal globes. I loved the xxx version when I saw it in the catalog and was delighted to find this one for $100 less. It looks exactly the same. My husband and I assembled it in about an hour. Nothing complicated. The toughest part is putting on all the globes which wasn't difficult, just time consuming. The results are definately worth it. I've received numerous compliments on it. Buy it, you won't regret it.
Just gorgeous!!!! Just put up fixture and have gotten SO many compliments on it. It is on the smaller side but looks just fine over my dining room table ( 30" x 60" ) My dining room is about 12' x 12', so it's also on the smaller side. Just beautiful...looks exactly like the one in ****** ****, and 100.00 less!! Enjoy...
I bought this ceiling fixture to be an "intermediate solution" while I waited for my husband to fix the one I had and love. Now that this one is up, I am NOT changing it! This is a really nice, piece, compliments the many antiques I have yet is simple and elegant with a little fun (the round glass hanging pieces are just fun). A great addition to my dining room. Everyone that has seen it falls in love.
I love this chandelier! It is a bit small but it makes a great statement. It was fairly easy to assemble and I got it put together, wired and hung in about an hour. The crystal balls are beautiful and for its size, it gives out a good amount of light. I like it so much that I am keeping the old chandelier so I can put it back up and take this one with me when I move. If you're considering buying this one, go for it. I think this one is a keeper.
It was just what I expected. I bought two to hang in my dinning room, they look amazing, the size is perfect for two in a dinning room if you have a long room such as mine 17ft. At night they look so pretty. I saved so much money buying on overstock, as you all might know they look just like ones in I've seen in a popular mag. easy to put together even came with white gloves to instoll. Thanks overstock.
Just like many of the reviews, it is a unique and pretty chandelier. It is on the small side..if it was bigger it would be PERFECT. Love the balls! The "holes" in the iron seemed "functionless" though, and it did not add to the aesthetic appeal.
I like how this chandelier looks, and am happy with the overall quality. My only complaint is that the glass balls are heavy, and are only fixed to the chandelier by flimsy wire circles. As a result, a few of the glass balls actually dropped off the chandelier.
