Love this light fixture, 3 60 watt bulbs illuminate the dinner table very well, hand crafted wood valances are belt around an iron frame and deflect the light away from your eyes. I converted this fixture to hang from a hook with a swag kit I bought elsewhere. The threaded hanging loop or adapter came with the fixture. Out of the box it comes with down rods in various lengths to hang at several fixed distances from the ceiling. This works well for rooms with and overhead electrical box.
This advice will hopefully be helpful to the next person who installs this. The crystals are all organized in packets, and the "item number" section in the direction box corresponds to each packet of crystals. Where the crystals are located on the chandelier is shown on the diagram below the "item section" box. Once you realize that, it's pretty easy to match the crystal packets with the numbers, after you count all the pieces (don't mix them up, as that'll be more confusing).
THERE IS AN ERROR in the instructions diagram, which is annoying, because it's already not easy to follow. The error is in the 6-7 region where it shows crystals hanging where the light should be. Obviously you can't hang crystals where the light goes. Those sets of crystals ( the mini 2-piece crystals that act as a hanging chain for the larger teardrops that are packaged with it) hang on the outermost swirls directly lateral to the light bulb area. In the diagram, there are no crystals hanging on those swirls, so you'll know where you're supposed to hang them, if you can see the only swirls in the diagram that are empty and closest to the bulb area. You can also somewhat see it in the photo online (here), but it's very hard to distinguish between crystals, as they mostly look like a large mass. Hopefully that makes sense.
My only constructive criticism for Overstock.com would be for an english speaker to re-write these instructions, for the error to be removed and for the directions to be more thorough. Other than that, it's a lovely chandelier once you can figure out how to put it together. It's not impossible! I looked at the picture online & studied the one-page instructions until I figured it out. Of course, it helps to count the holes on the chandelier too. If a girl can do it, YOU can do it too. :)
I love this chandelier. It is an attractive addition to my 12 by16 dining room. I was reluctant to purchase a chandelier without seeing it first hand, but I allowed the reviews to guide me and am happy to report that the reviews were quite accurate and reliable. Despite the very low price, the chandelier does not look cheap. It is a large and substantial fixture. It measures 35 inches in diameter, 22 inches in height with a 5 inch canopy. I agree that a dimmer should be used so as to capture the full spectrum of the chandelier's lighting capabilities--allowing for different mood experiences. The chandelier does come in several pieces, however the instructional diagram was sufficient to allow for a painless assembly. I was able to put it together in 40 minutes without help, though I deferred to a professional electrician for installation. I wholeheartedly recommend this chandelier.
I was so reluctant to purchase this because I was concerned that it would be sparse of shells and small. It was the perfect size in my small dining area. It brought the glamour I was looking for and my neighbors are all raving over it. I will definitely be purchasing another for my bedroom. I have read that some say it was hard to put together but this is not at all true. The shells are already hooked together and have clips at the top of each column, all you do is hook into the holes on the top. It took me about 30 mins to install the whole thing.
My mom had been scouring Overstock for just the right light fixture for my living room. When this one showed up in my inbox I knew it was perfect.
The fixture is beautiful, was packaged very well and included extra hardware. The fixture directs light both up to the ceiling and down through the shade, which was exactly what I wanted and from directly underneath, it sort of looks like a spaceship.
Installation was a little tricky to do by myself, but I am smarter than the average girl so of course I worked it out! Trickiest part was attaching the ring with the shade inside of it to the top half of the fixture that had already been mounted to the ceiling.
My Install Tip: Leave the shade out and partially screw on only one of the four posts with the ring swiveled to the outside of the fixture. Then put the shade in the ring and swivel the ring & shade into position and screw on the opposite post. Once you are no longer in danger dropping anything, you can tighten the remaining posts.
It is as advertised. Good quality, heavy with a quality look. Well machined etc. I had read reviews which complained about installation. Actually, this is a legitimate complaint. It is confusing The trick is that the way they packaged it to fit in a box, the partially assembled it -- backwards. So when you take it out of the box, you assume that what is put together should stay together, say like a marriage. But no, you have to disassemble, but something around and reassemble.
Easy to install. One thing i do not love is that the light shoot up, which casts a bright circle onto the ceiling. I wish the light was casted down. The only way to do that is to not install the plastic circle on the bottom of the light, however, that would leave the actual bulb exposed. Bottom line - it works for us in our sons playroom, since we have lots windows, the rooms tends to stay bright anyway. It is a nice looking ceiling light, priced right, which we liked.
I ordered three of these to go over my 8 foot island. They were replacing builder grade pendants. Several reviews mentioned that the bulb stand were not straight and all three of mine had this same issue. I cannot address if they were difficult to install since I had mine done professionally but the electrician could not get the bulbs straight and was afraid to keep trying for fear of snapping them off. Even with the tilted bulbs I would recommend this light. It is a great value for the money and looks very similar to lights that cost twice the price. This is not a large light fixture so I would not suggest putting it in a dining room, better suited to a foyer, hallway or over a kitchen island. I would have given it 5 stars except for the crooked light arms.
I bought two of these to go in my upstairs hallway. There is another similar one on this site for about double the price that looks nicer in the picture. I took the risk of getting this one, and it looks amazing!!! As beautiful as the picture of the more expensive one. I am very particular when it comes to decorating my home (and I love doing it for less!). You won't go wrong getting these, and the price can't be beat!
I love this fixture. It looks lovely in my foyer which has a ten foot ceiling. If the ceiling was the standard 8 feet, it would hang too low. If you adjusted the links to fit a 8 ft. ceiling, the fixture would look odd.
I purchased this light fixture to replace an outdated fixture in a home I had just purchased 2 years ago. It is a great style but I have 2 small problems with it; the shade is a little too translucent so you can see the shapes of the bulbs through it more than I'd like and you have to wear gloves when touching the shade or the oils in your hands will leave marks on the frosted glass.
Pay attention to the measurements of the actual pendant. It was larger than I thought which was better for me actually since my ceilings are vaulted. It also looks like rhinestones from the picture but they are BEADS that look like clear marbles not crystals. The beads look like a marble necklaces. That would be my only complaint. The beads look pretty but they are not crystals.
It's a good mixture of rustic and contemporary. I also needed more length on the rods to hang it lower, so just take careful measurements to make sure it works in your space.
Very easy assembly and shipped fast.
This chandelier is even prettier in person. It was packed with care, each glass bead wrapped and protected. It was, however, quite a chore to assemble with 225 glass beads that each need to be threaded onto a very small keychain-like circle, then threaded onto the chandelier itself. Plan to spend several hours on the beads, but TOTALLY worth it! Absolutely beautiful!!
I am pleased with the purchase of this chandelier for our 12X14 dining room. The dimensions of the fixture are actually 23 wide (from globe edge to globe edge) and 17 high (not including the chain). What I like best is that it meets all of my criteria: Fits with our dark furniture and attractive; a bright light for doing work at the table but also on a dimmer switch for atmosphere and energy savings; a modern look to update the room (replacing a brass and glass 80s chandelier). The light looks very graceful. The globes are white with marbling, and even with only four 60-watt bulbs, it provides good light. With the fixture hanging 31 inches above our table, regular light bulbs are visible, so we had to buy ceiling fan light bulbs which are shorter. The fixture is much lighter in weight than I imagined, maybe 12 lbs. I took someones advice from the reviews to hang the fixture so that all four globes are visible from the doorway. The chandelier was shipped mostly assembled and was extremely well packaged. Although a corner of the box was damaged, none of the parts inside were. The handyman had no problems whatsoever with installation. We wanted to recenter the light, so we swagged it using a bronze hook; in addition, that used all of the ample chain length.
I ordered this for my dining room to replace my old chandelier.
Took about a week to arrive. Ordered last Sunday, arrived today (Saturday). Installed it immediately. The installation only took me about 30 min (I'm a first time homeowner, relatively handy--or at least, enthusiastic about learning how to diy). It was very easy; instructions/installation easy, except there appears to be one step (#4) missing on the little pamphlet. It was easy enough to figure out though.
This lamp is very elegant--it has elements of the classic/retro and modern that really appeal to me. I have a house built in 1934 (kind of brick-colonial style), and I like try to keep my decor simple, colorful, with lots of antique elements, while still up-to-date and sophisticated. I looked for a long time for a lamp/chandelier that was a mix of classic, interesting, unpretentious, not too froo-froo, and of course, under $150. This lamp was (and is) perfect!
It is also bright. It takes 3 60w bulbs. I have mine with a dimmer (which I would recommend) to get the full range. Some people might find the 3 bulbs too strong on full. I actually like it because my dining room is a darkish teal-blue, and this lamp creates a bright, warm, inviting light without hurting your eyes (like my old exposed-bulb chandelier did).
The price is great! Very happy I purchased it.
Look as good as the ones from the lighting store. Arrived intact. Needed an adapter to mount on a sloped roof. Looks especially cool lit at night. Throws off a surprising amount of light with single 100 watt equivalent warm glow led bulb.
Looks great. Good size. They have texturized the metal I guess to make it look like iron. Wasn't crazy about it when I first saw it, but looks beautiful when hung. Love the way the light hits the walls surrounding the fixture. I have had for less than a week and already so many compliments. Even the handyman I had hang it said it was beautiful.
I ordered the chandelier to go over my dining room table. I was looking for something relatively simple and classic, which I think this is. It looks the same as pictured. I really like this chandelier. It comes virtually unassembled and must be put together. I didn't find this task too difficult and I'm by no means an electrician or handyman. The assembly is basically common sense. You attach the arms to a central piece and tighten with nuts and bolts. My only complaint is that it can be a bit tedious to get the arms all evenly spaced. Its actually easiest to adjust them after the chandelier is hung. I just took a tape measure and measured the distance between the arms and adjusted until they were all the same distance apart. Again, sort of common sense and a little bit of a pain but for the low price tag I don't mind a little extra hassle. If you ordered something like this already assembled, it would probably cost quite a bit more and you really wouldn't be getting any more for your money. For me, I don't mind doing a little extra work or assembling a piece of furniture in order to get a better deal. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this chandelier to anyone.
The chandelier looks just like it does in the picture. The white shade is plastic on the inside but fabric on the outside giving it a nice texture. The metal exterior shade has a good weight to it and looks substantial. The circles in the outer shade are nicely cut giving it a clean appearance. With three 60 watt bulbs (the maximum) it casts a very nice warm light and illuminates the space effectively. On the bottom of the shade is a plastic cover which helps diffuse the light so that you are not staring at the bulbs inside. Although plastic when hung looks like glass. We hung it in our office for a contemporary look and it fits both form and function. My husband installed the light with minimal expletives and it took only around twenty minutes to install.
After having these in our previous custom home, when we moved again in less than 2 years I was hoping I could fine the same Chandeliers. I found the Chandeliers and purchased 3. I have them in the master bath, entry and over the Baby Grand.
I bought this fixture and really like it! It was well worth the money. It is simple yet elegant. The shades are a linen/beige color and very neutral. If you can install a ceiling fan you can install this light. My husband had no trouble at all!
Right size and length over the stairwell. Though unlike our other lights which are metal and glass, this is a plastic like dome covered with real leaves, a bit organic, this adds a certain ocean accent to our decore plus color over the stairwell and outside window. It's a unique lamp, but we like it. It arrived quickly in a large box and everything was packaged securely with no damage.
Thank goodness for the previous reviewer who let me know this was silver and not ivory! I wanted silver and bought it because it would be. I have silver metal tiles in our entryway and this goes along with them beautifully! I would not have ordered it in off-white. It is easy to assemble and looks very nice installed. We had some chips in the glass dangles, but they included 2 extras and that was just what we needed.
OMG, this is the most beautiful lamp I have ever had in my whole entire life!!! I have waited 50 years for something this beautiful, and my kitchen is now complete!!! The colors are beautiful and I love to just come out and look at it!!! And my kids (20 and 15) and my husband and my mother all love it too!!! Thank you so much for making something so affordable!!! In these times, it is nice to be able to have nice things and not pay a fortune for them!!!
I bought this chandelier online because I was looking for an accent piece to center over a black velvet settee that I didn't need to hardwire.... Well we were not disappointed. It has a lot of pizazz and presence. The only thing I would recommend when hanging because installation is unnecessary I definitely use a clear bulb or clear candelabra as a white bulb does not do it justice!
The photos are very accurate with regard to the colors of the lamp when lit and unlit, but it's even more beautiful up close and personal. Quality craftsmanship is evident, it was packaged well and arrived when expected. Do yourself a favor and order this light fixture.
My photos were taken in the early morning, so not perfect, but you can see it's beauty.
This is a really cute light. We added a chain and swagged it for that full midcentury modern effect. Do know that there is an extra wire that confused our handyman a bit. We called an electrician and he said it's just an extra ground wire & that all the wires should be labeled (which they were) so that you know which are the two live ones (they're labeled kinda oddly so it took some figuring out).
I replaced the large ornate light fixture that was in this home when I bought it recently -- I LOVE this new pendant. It is perfect above my dining room table and the colors match my decor! I would highly recommend this to anyone needing a new light fixture. Fast delivery - arrived in perfect condition.
This is one of my favorite Overstock purchases! I hung it over a large, round whitewashed solid wood dining room table (also from Overstock) and it makes a great statement. The mix of gold and silver and the sponge-technique look makes it fancier without being ornate. It also gives off a good amount of light, that's muted be the shade. This piece works in a retro mod design, with country design, or even more traditional decors. It's a little pricey, but it's worth it to create a beautiful focal point.
Absolutely love this light. We get beautiful sunsets where we live and this creates little rainbows on my walls and floor from the reflections on the crystals. We hung it in front of an atrium window with a sloping ceiling so that was a little tricky but once hung.................AMAZING!!
