Bought this chandelier, hung it and took it down. THIS THING IS MASSIVE! It is beautiful and very easy to hang (my hubby & i did together). We have a large kitchen, with a eating area off to the side & a keeping room all together. We also have 10 foot ceilings. Bought this to go over a 72 inch dining table. We hung it & it was so overwhelmingly big I just didn't like ti. We also hung it in front of a window and it totally blocked the view. The solid look of the shade makes it appear visually heavy. I tried to live with it,but everytime someone came over they all said "whoa- that thing is big!". Like I said, it is pretty, but be sure you want something this large and heavy looking. We can't return it so hopefully we can find another spot for it eventually. Also, the shade had a slight tilt when hung and was slightly bent. Easy to put up though.
