This fixture looks as pictured on the website when hung about 30" above a dining table and from a 9' ceiling. If you have 8' ceilings, you may have to adapt the fixture to have no chain (probably not too easy.) The installation instructions are awful and the picture diagram is unclear. Please know that when wiring, the ribbed brown wire is the neutral one and the smooth brown wire is the hot one. Also, you will need a tool to cut the chain to length. Sliding the wiring through the hollow bolt that extends into the mounting bracket is very tight. Hanging this fixture is a two-person job due to its weight. I stacked boxes on my kitchen table to support the fixture at the appropriate height and was able to do it myself, but it would be better to have a second person to help. The shades are as pictured on the website, somewhat tan beige, not white or cream.
