I purchased this light for my dining area which is 15'X12' with a vaulted ceiling and was worried it would be too small and not give off enough light, boy was I wrong! It's very bright thank goodness I have a dimmer. As for the size I have a 54" round dining table and it works fine for me, I have not extended the table yet for guest but I think it will be ok. The light is REAL crystal and chrome and really sparkle's! You will have to put it together I did as many others did just put on a good movie and time fly's. There was nothing broke or missing and it even comes with extra part's. It's a beautiful light for the money and less than **** you cant beat that! Thanks Overstock!!
