This piece has been on my wish list forever. So glad I finally purchased it. The chandelier was the perfect size for my living room and it has become the centerpiece of the room. I can't stop admiring it.
I bought this chandelier for my dining room because it is similar to the sputnik style chandeliers at the New York City Metropolitan Opera House. I had been wanting one for years. The price point is much better than the replicas of the chandelier offered by the manufacturer of the chandeliers at the Met. First, this is HUGE. If you do not have a large dining room It is going to eat some space and it does come with various sized rods from which to hang it. Second, unless your space is large their are twenty-four lights on it, and even with a 25 watt light bulbs that is SIX HUNDRED watts of light so you will need a dimmer switch installed if you don't want to go blind. The bulbs do not come with the chandelier you will have to buy them separately which is NOT listed on the description but caused me to send back the first one, after calling customer service and them not knowing so I would have to send the whole thing back. Third, OMG this is a bear to put together. It is very difficult to get a random look with this chandelier, all those long and short decorative pieces are beautiful but there is no real instruction as to how to install them on the round ball in the middle, in what order or anything else. To be the biggest failing was not having better instructions because what you see at one angle of is not what you see on another so it may not look exactly like the photo. To be fair they recommend a professional installation but I took that as professional to install it to the ceiling with the electric not decide where to screw in the rods and decorative pieces. SO this is why I rated it one less star. Recap: Pros: Beautiful, big, Mid-Century, Eclectic, a show stopper. Cons: No instructions, Bulbs do not come with it,and it is very difficult to put together, and you need a dimmer switch installed on your wall to regulate the brightness.
