The fabric chandelier is retro-beautiful. The 12" bars were sufficient for my 9' ceilings. I have a fairly large dining room. However, there is what I consider a major flaw -- but the other reviews have not commented on this flaw. I am not sure if I am being too particular so I would like to hear from the other reviewers if this 'flaw' is by design.The glass is not flush with the frame. It has 1/2" gaps on both of the short ends, and 1/4" gaps on both lengthy sides. Is this normal? I was expecting the glass to be seated on a shelf. I did not expect to be able to stick my finger thru either side.
