This light is adorable. The glass balls are charming, adding dimension to the overall character. It was a bit challenging to hang because I wanted it flush against the ceiling without the chain, but that wasn't possible. It was also a bit cumbersome to install and we had to make adjustments to the pieces that weren't properly prepared. BUT for such an affordable piece, it was worth it. I don't love the balance of the light bulb placement, but I'm going to try frosted bulbs next time and maybe it won't be harsh to look at.
I find this to be a delightful chandelier. Yes, there are a lot of parts to assemble and it is not quite what I'd expected given the hollow tubing but even so the finished product is heavy, ornate and eye-catching. The crystal bubbles reflect the surroundings beautifully adding depth and dimension. It is not a large chandelier which is perfect for our small dining area off the great room. We live in a beach home and this is just the right touch for shabby chic with distressed wood and modern decor. Even my hunny loves the look and he's the contemporary guy who had to assemble it!
Don't get too nit-picky---this is a great chandelier for the price. The globes are glass and it looks just like a ** chandelier for over twice the price. I was hesitant to order but figured I could return--no way, this is a keeper. My husband and I put it together in about a half hour. This piece would look great in a dining room or a bed room for a touch of class. I will be putting mine in our kitchen.
Its often hard to purchase something online like this, without seeing it in person. I was hesitant to order, but am very happy with it. It was fairly easy to assemble. The 25 crystal bulbs were a bit tedious to hang, but it just took a little patience. Two of the crystals were broke, and Overstock is supposed to be sending a replacement. Overall, its a great looking piece and I'm VERY happy with it ! Perfect for our dining room - not too big, just a classic look !
I loved this product from the time I saw it and it looks great in my dining room however big draw back is one of the lights doesn't work no matter what bulb I put it there it doesn't light up. it's frustrating but it's up there now I have to learn to live with it.
This chandelier is identical to "others" I was looking at. It was a small pain to get together and to attach the globes. Once it was installed it looked great until the heavy glass globes started falling off. One almost dropped on my daughters head! The tiny glass loop broke and the metal hanging device slipped through and it fell and broke! This has happened twice now. At first I was surprised that they sent 4 or 5 extra glass globes but not anymore. I recommend you check all of your globes before installing them to check for tiny cracks along the attachment areas.
The posted pictures look great and the color description "Black, Brown, Gold, Silver, White" looks great. From reading the reviews I wasn't expecting real wrought iron, but I expected a paint finish that mimicked wrought iron. But instead when I opened the box, the chandelier is a milk chocolate color. There's not a lot of black in it and the finish is glossy and doesn't give off the rustic look at all. If I was hanging this chandelier very high up then I might still keep it. However, I'm hanging this fairly low over the dining table so this isn't going to work for me. Really wish the finish on this was much better. As it is, it looks really cheap and not worth even the "discounted" price here.
