I wanted this fixture to coordinate with the 9-light fixture I have in the living room. This item I wanted to put up in my entrance hall. It is a nice large fixture (too large for my hall) and was a great value versus the costs. Our ceilings are fairly low so we needed a flush or semi-flush but this hangs too low for our space. My husbands loves the fixture so he has put it in but I know with time we will have to move it. The first time someone over 6 foot tall enters the house they will hit their head on it. There was a problem with the wiring in the light but my husband repaired it... otherwise it would have been a return. Overall a very good looking fixture but may be problematic if you have low ceilings.
