After the light fixture arrived in so many pieces, I went online to review comments and was tempted to return because it looked rusted brown. What a mistake that would have been. Up close when putting together I didn't think the Chandelier would look as beautiful in my home as in the online picture. It looks better put together and installed. The fixture looks black/oil rubbed bronze once installed. Overstock has always come through for me. I purchased a $1.1 million house and this looks beautiful in my kitchen. The shades alone would cost almost as much as the fixture at Ball------ Des----. I may order another for my dining room b/c the price is so good and basically the Chandelier looks amazing.
