This light is more than worth the trouble it takes to hang as it is stunning. Luckily, my husband and I had a patient electrician to help with hanging the light. He did have to trim the screws in order for the light to sit flush with the ceiling and the most difficult part was making the decision about what length to hang all eight lights. As others reviews recommended, keep the plastic on while you are hanging the light so the shades do not get broken. It took about two hours to hang this light but it was so worth it! This fixture provides a lot of light. It calls for eight 100 watt bulbs but we went with 60 watt bulbs and also added a dimmer. The 60 watt bulbs provide more than enough light. The amber tinted shades create a beautiful effect, but the lighting is not yellow or too warm. You will not regret purchasing this gorgeous light!!
I ordered 4 of these lights for a kitchen reno and really like the look. I have dimmable LED bulbs in them, and the light casts down from the shade to illuminate the counter below. The entire shade is not lit, but an incandescent bulb may light the entire shade better than the LED bulb. There are three lengths of rod which make the drop adjustable. I liked the rod look rather than the chain look. They are sleek, light and a combination of rustic/industrial/contemporary design. The shades are a plastic type material with layers of a variety of film overlayed which gives a feeling of thin stone as shades. Overall I am very happy. Dimensions on the write up were accurate. Hardwired in by professional and canopy covers to hide the junction boxes at the ceiling. I felt the price was on the strong side, but was pleased with the product received.
We purchased one in burlap for a dark corner of our living room that was going to be too difficult to hardwire. When we first hung it, the shade was slightly crooked, the cord wasn't straight, and the shade seam was positioned front and center. But after some easy adjustment, the lamp looked great and added so much ambience that we ordered 2 more! My only complaint is the bare cord, but I guess that's just the way they do things now. Otherwise, great light for a great price. My very hip friend complimented our new lights, so they must be stylin. Haha
