Stunning! I can't say how much I adore this chandelier. When compared to it's twin at XXXXXXX XXXX for $XXX - you're getting a steal. Assembly was a two person job, however, doable. If you're on the fence, move forward. You won't regret it.
I was worried when I read the bad reviews about this being poorly made, but I ordered it anyway because I figured if it was really that terrible I could just send it back and buy the more expensive one from that barn store. Well, I'm happy I did order it. Yes, the quality isn't perfect. It is certainly not wrought iron but instead hollow steel with rusty wrought iron style finish. It isn't very solid, the parts have a good bit of bend to them which means when you install it you may have to make small adjustments to get it to look just right. Assembly was a breeze, we had no broken parts and they even included two extra glass balls just in case. Our electrician had no problems installing it. It is hanging over our dining room table and I think it looks beautiful and pretty much identical to the photograph listed here. That being said, you get what you pay for. Compared to the drab and boring pieces at the big box stores that are identically priced and not nearly was interesting, I think it's a bargain. But don't expect it to be constructed like a $2000 chandelier (IE: what this would likely cost if it was actual wrought iron).
If you are ok putting in a lot of effort to put this thing together...go for it. If I had know how many pieces this chandelier came in, I likely would not have purchased. Practically nothing is pre-assembled. But, once assembled it is an ok chandelier. I agree with some of the other reviews on the finish. It is not a true iron chandelier. It is a faux iron finish. This doesn't bother me much though because this is going in my office, which has a 16 foo ceiling so the finish will not be too obvious. Gives the effect I was going for at a lower cost than the other store. May be a bit on the small side for an average sized dining room. Overall an ok item though.
This chandelier is so pretty. Only complaint is the rings that hold the crystals to the metal are very flimsy. Asked for replacement balls but was told via email they were not able to sell components separate. Big problem hard to find this style elsewhere. This should be an option especially since the rings are so flimsy breakage of glass balls is inevitable if knocked or bumped.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this chandelier. It is so pretty and gives off just enough light. Searched many Big Box Stores, and just could not find what I wanted. As always, Overstock had it. I felt even better about my purchase a week later when I received a catalog from a well-known "high-end" home store that had two similar styles of the chandeliers/entry lights I had purchased at Overstock for almost double the price. I recommend O.com to everyone I know for household purchases, I have yet to be dissatisfied.
Okay. Yes, VERY hard to put together. You literally are reassembling the light from its packaging. However, if you are somewhat handy and can figure out the electrical, it's worth the purchase. We bought this for our bedroom and it is so pretty (added a dimmer switch for ambiance). Lovely. Just lovely!!
The Chandelier was as expected and not difficult to put together; was not disappointed. If I had to gripe about something it would just be that the color isnt really wrought iron, its more like a painted wood color. Still overall a good purchase.
Bought this for a powder room. It is a beautiful oil rubbed bronze color. The glass balls are hefty and nice - not cheap at all. The light has lovely balance and good looks. The only con I would give it is that it comes completely unassembled and you need to put the lighting part together (each arm separate) and then individually hang each of the glass balls on - there are lots of them. For us, it was worth the investment of time to get such a nice light for such a great price.
