The chandelier looks good, but installation is a nightmare. The weight of the entire unit is meant to be put on four arms that form an elastic connection to the junction box. This is probably a design preference, but I'd go with a rigid connection if I were the designer. I had to untangle almost each and every string (the end of which holds a crystal ball) that was put into a plastic bag - that was a 5-hour job for me. I was just amazed how this happened in the first place, maybe some very unhappy workers did it on purpose (just kidding). No matter you buy this as a DIY project or plan to hire a handyman, be prepared for the time you have to spend on it.
I needed additional lighting in my home office, without having to hire an electrician to hardwire. This pendant is well made and adds just the right amount of light.
I had been looking for a new dining room light for quite a long time; checked the usual suspects (Home Depot, Lowe's, etc.) but didn't find anything I liked, or if I did it was often way out of my budget. Decided to check Overstock.com because I've found some great home improvement/decor items in the past; and of course Overstock didn't let me down! This chandelier is beautiful and elegant with a modern touch thanks to the smooth crystals and chrome finish--this is not your grandmother's chandelier. It even looks pricey, but not pretentious; friends thought I spent at least $500 on it. Ha! Even though a wiring guide and detailed instructions were NOT provided, it was easy enough to figure out the wiring and installation if you've installed a few hardwired light fixtures in the past (if this is your first attempt, it may be best to ask someone more knowledgeable for assistance); I was able to install, including removing old fixture, in about 35 minutes while my toddler was napping. Looks fantastic, well constructed, and extra crystals were provided, too, just in case. Had no issues with wires being too short/uneven that other reviewers have had (I actually had to cut them shorter for installation in my short-ceilinged dining room). Very happy with this purchase.
Okay we bought this light for my 8 year old daughter bdrm. My husband had a super hard time putting it up. The parts are not specific to this light . Just general screws etc . This made the assembly difficult and frustrating. Putting the crystals in and stringing all the little beads was also very annoying and my husband complained the whole time. He said Please never buy anything form this light manufactor. However here is the thing. This light is beautiful . It is sparkly. Its modern and chic and just perfect. I love it my daughter loves it. I am thiking of getting another for my youngest daughter's room . I am just hoping the hubby will not divorce me when he sees the new box come in. Buy it you will like it. Have someone you don't like install it. :)
