We ordered this chandelier for the 11X14 dining room in our newly built farmhouse. The fixture hangs over a 64 inch round table, and from a 10 foot ceiling. It looks beautiful in the room against sage green walls, and turned out to be quite a focal point in the house. It has a very simple, colonial look (I chose not to use the shades). As the other reviews pointed out, it does take some time and patience to put together. But, considering the price as compared to the other lighting we bought at a retail lighting store, it was well worth it. The only thing that could make it better is to put a dimmer on the fixture, which my husband plans to do soon.
