First, the negatives: this chandelier is challenging to put together - not great directions (what a surprise) - it took two very smart people over an hour to complete. Also, the chrome finish has little imperfections here and there. On the positive side: you know how expensive lighting can be, therefore to get something that looks this great for the Overstock price is a real deal. The fabric shade is very nicely constructed. You will not notice the little imperfections in the chrome once the piece is hung - instead you will be admiring how wonderful and updated your dining room looks. I recommend buying it.
