I had my heart set on these crystal type fixtures from the decorating magazines but could not see spending a fortune on a "statement" light for my entryway. Enter the knockoffs . . . most have been plagued with bad reviews for difficulty of installation or crystal quality. I did not install but my handyman had no problem with it. Did not take hours to hang crystals as others have warned. A beautiful fixture for the money. I was not troubled by the shiny chrome finish -- and really, once the crystals are on, your eye does not go to the metal. My only criticism is that I don't love the center cord hanging down through the middle of the fixture (the higher end designer fixtures manage to obscure this). Again, the bling factor does not cause your gaze to fix on this. Also note, it makes light patterns on the ceiling and walls. Kind of festive, but if you just want even overhead light this might not be for you. Very happy with this purchase!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Crystals were nice and thick/sturdy. Chrome is shiny, but it works. Better than expected.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good.
