My husband is a perfectionist and difficult to please. We set out in search of a new chandelier for our dining room and found some options at our local lighting store. Since we were not completely satisfied with pricing or designs I began searching on line. When I saw this fixture the price was right and it had the look I was after. I ordered it and was nervous as to what my picky husband would think. After he hung it we realized if I wanted to, I could add the shades which I love instead of using the glass. This was really the look I was after. I cannot even begin to tell you how incredibly thrilled I am with how it turned out. The final verdict came from my husband the other day, approximately three weeks after the fixture was hung when he said, "The light fixture really does look great." This is huge for him! He is an engineer and an absolute perfectionist, need I say more.
