We have been remodeling and we finally got to put up this chandelier. It is truly wonderful reflecting light at every angle. The crystals are glass, not plastic. We absolutely love it. It is perfect for our condo table which is only 34" in diameter. It looks magnificent and adds a classy touch to our contemporary/traditional mixed decor. It also acts as a divider in our rather long common dining/living room but without diminishing the space. The only problems we had involved not being able to open it right away so not finding that 3 of the large crystals were broken. It's a good thing there were two extra. I am going to contact Overstock and get the broken ones replaced just in case we need them in the future. Thank you, Overstock, for making available exactly what I wanted!
