I bought this light because it was exactly the look I wanted and definitely the right price point, After spending weeks debating about other lights that were very expensive and not exactly what I wanted I came back to this. I knew we would have to do some manipulation as we only have 8' ceilings and this would hang too low since it does not have a flush mount option. The instructions that come with this light are useless. They tell you absolutely nothing and probably confuse more than they help. The light is made of cheep painted metal (you get what you pay for). Some of the fixtures came bent and the more you handle it the more wear you will see before you even hang it. We first hung it without manipulating it to see what height we could get it at. The closest to the ceiling with only one chain link would be 6" (overall of 42" from ceiling). This is far too low for an 8' ceiling. Figuring out how to make this a flush mount fixture took a bit of thought (including drilling a hole in my new light fixture), trial and error, and time. Now that it is done it looks absolutely gorgeous and I couldn't be happier. Definitely looks like a much higher grade light and I keep getting lots of compliments by everyone that comes by. My husband may not agree...he says the next light we buy for the house I can spend the money on. Overall I guess I would recommend this light...to anyone who has 9' ceilings or higher!!
