    • Nice light with a little elbow grease
      Verified Purchase

      Ok. I am keeping this light and trying to make it work. It has pros and cons. Let me tell you the truth and you can decide if this is the light for you. WHAT IS THIS LIGHT MADE OF? This light is not ALL iron. The orb is. The chandelier parts are steel or tube metal or something. The light comes almost fully assembled. WHAT ABOUT THE CYRSTALS? The crystals are pretty, have a few with scratches, bubbles or other defects but are still pretty. I have plenty left over crystals to choose the best ones since you have one terrible diagram to look at to try to figure out placement of all the crystals. Still not a terriblle situation- I used my creative license and the crystal set up looks really good (and I have plenty of left overs for replacements). The attachments between crystals are the gold color. WHAT IS THE COLOR OF THIS LIGHT? Ok- this is where I am pretty disgusted. The light claimes it is "iron". I (wrongly) assumed an iron finish meant black wrought iron. Maybe it was a little rusty (that would have been great!). But no. The paint is a glossy black paint with glossy bright red speckles. Even the "candles". It is so tacky, so dollar store, so so ugly. (PS I love dollar stores too, so no offense). I tried my best to fix this situation by buying spray paint in rust color and textured. Sprayed the whole light. Only problem is the one glass piece on the light isn't removable. I can see through the glass and notice the horror show paint behind it. I am hoping it isn't too noticable to anyone else. Time will tell if this is a livable situation. OTHERWISE, now that it is a rusty looking light, it looks great, very very basically exact to a light on my favorite "restoration" site. That light cost over $2000.! So this is quite a savings (as long as the terrible original paint doesn't show through the glass). It's a mixed bag- good deal if you want to do the work and you compare the price to that other site, but 250 bucks is an aweful lot of money to spend on a light that you have to fix to make pretty

    • Unique Light with Great PRice
      Verified Purchase

      I was drawn to this light immediately due to the unique design for my entry foyer. The iron is strong, but not super heavy. Color of the light is closer to black than antique bronze. Beware that there is a lot of assembly with the crystals and there are confusing directions on how to string the crystals. In the end, I winged it and used my own design. The crystals are NOT Swarworski and the wire holding crystals together is gold and pretty flimsy, but when the light is hanging is it beautiful and no one is the wiser. Many. many compliments and 90% cheaper than the original "Foucault's orb" at a major design retailer. Great job again Overstock!

    • Good for the price
      Verified Purchase

      This light is an extremely good value compared to the original light at RH, which is more than six times the price of this one. No - this light is not the same quality as the real version, but it's good enough - and once hung, no one will be able to tell it's a lesser quality copy. The color is, as others have pointed out is black with red/rust colored metallic paint splotches. Looking up close, it looks really cheap - but from a distance, it looks more like iron. The crystals are not real crystal - I'm not 100% sure if they are glass or plastic, and a few of them were broken - but they did provide extra crystals. Again, once hung, the light looks very very good, and not cheap at all (but up close, you can tell the quality isn't the greatest). The added bonus of this light compared to the real one, is that it is much lighter in weight, which made it easier to hang. Depending on how high your ceilings are, you may need a longer chain and cord. We were hanging this in a vaulted spaces (2 floors high), so the chain was way too short (we needed about 6 ft of chain, instead of the shorter chain that was provided). Also, there are really no real directions on how to hang the crystals - just print out a copy of the light pictured online, and use that as a guide to figure it out. I'm really happy with this light. It was a pain to assemble, but well worth it to have the look of a RH chandelier at a fraction of the cost. From the ground it looks wonderful!

      I saw this globe chandelier in a consignment/antique store and fell in love but it was more than I wanted to spend. I began searching online and found a variety of sizes, metals, and especially prices for globe chandeliers. I decided to purchase this one following my research. It is not more black than bronze. It is large. It is pretty and makes a great focus piece in my dining room. We needed to rewire the electrical and purchase a longer chain as the cord and chain attached to the chandelier is not very long even with the 25 inch height of the chandelier and the customary 30 inches from the tabletop to the bottom of the light. It is very unique and fits my decorating style well.

    • Removing the crystals is not an option
      Verified Purchase

      I love the style of this chandelier BUT I was hoping I would have the option to keep the crystals off for a more rustic look. I knew they required some assembly so I figured if I left them off, it would have the look I was going for. Well, the crystals themselves are detachable, but the crystal/glass collar at the top of the fixture is not... nor are the small crystal buttons on the ends of the chandelier arms. I was so bummed- I really wanted to love this fixture but I returned it without even hanging it. If you like the crystal look, this chandelier is a great option for the price point!!!!!

    • Foucault's Orb 6 Light Chandelier
      Verified Purchase

      I purchased the Foucault's Orb 6 light chandelier for my entry foyer. The chandelier is beautiful. However, one of the glass light cups was broken when the chandelier was received. Also, the directions for assembly were awful. Only a simple sketch was included as assembly directions, without any written instructions detail drawing as to where the ends of the crystal strings were to be attached. I figured out how to assemble the fixture by finding a picture of the assembled chandelier on-line. When I receive the replacement for the broken part, I will be fully satisfied with my purchase.

    • Orb Crystal Light
      Verified Purchase

      I drooled over this light for months before I bought it. It kept going in and out of stock. When I would go to buy it, it would be sold out again! Finally I was able to buy it with only four remaining! This light shipped extremely fast and came in very big, well packaged box. I guess I didn't read the dimensions closely because the size of the light surprised me a bit. It was bigger than I expected, but still worked well. You might want to get a tape measure out and double check! : ) I have nine foot ceilings and we just shortened the chain so it looked good in our sitting room. This light is in a room right off my entry way and it gets a lot of attention. The light is bronze with very small reddish flecks. I didn't think it distracted from the beauty. Once its up, its a stunner! The crystals are attached with gold clips. I love gold and bronze, so this worked well for what I had planned. I am very happy with this light and the price. I can't afford the original designer one at almost ten times the price, so this is a great substitute!

    • Great Value for the Style
      Verified Purchase

      The Good: This chandelier looks really nice from far away. I hung mine in the sun room, which has a 14-foot cathedral ceiling, and it looks amazing in there! It has the stylish, modern look I was going for, at a fraction of the cost you'd find it elsewhere. The Not-So-Good: If this chandelier has real crystals, they are the dullest, most glass-looking crystals ever made. When the light is on, there are zero prisms reflected from the crystals. I have a chandelier with real crystals in my eat-in kitchen (also purchased from Overstock!), and there's a HUGE difference in crystal quality. The "bronzed" finish is also questionable up close - it's really more of a black with red spots. That being said, you cannot beat the price point for this trendy chandelier style. High-end retail stores are selling this style of chandelier for at least five times the price you will pay for this one. I recommend sticking with this one for a two-story foyer or a room with a high ceiling. If you're going to hang it at eye level in a dining room, you may want to splurge for the higher end version.

    • Neat look. Looks nice from afar.
      Verified Purchase

      I bought this chandelier for my office. I really wanted an orb chandelier and when I saw this one on overstock I couldn't believe the price! It was significantly lower than a major home decor store that I have seen a similar one at. At first when the chandelier arrived it was missing all of the crystal parts. I called the number that came with it and they shipped out a box of all the crystal parts that I needed. My electrician had some difficulty getting the chandelier up. It is not the greatest quality by far, but I suppose you get what you pay for. You can't really have this light and not put the crystals on it. It doesn't look right without them. The finish is not black, or iron, or bronze. It is actually a black paint with red paint speckles all over it. Kind of weird, but from far away you can't even tell. The instuctions for putting up the crystals are not very clear, so I just improvised and did the best I could until there was no more room to hang any more. It actually came with a ton of extra crystals! Also, the metal that the crystals hang from are a very cheap, thin gold color. Again, from far away you can't tell. Overall, for the price, this light looks pretty good. It actually is a bit fancier than I thought it would be because of all the crystals. You could probably even hang it in a dining room or a foyer and it would look stunning.

      there is a lot of assembly, but it was worth it for the price. the crystals aren't actual crystal and the little hooks that hold them in place seem flimsy, but they hold fine and you can't tell when it's up in the ceiling space. there are a TON of extra parts, and the instructions could be better, I just went by the picture and made up some of the design.

    • Awesome in 16 ft foyer but chain too short
      Verified Purchase

      I love this. It looks great. But the electrician had to use the junction that was on my old chandelier because the chain was only 2.5 ft long approx. Apparently, that is now considered against codes but the other option was to totally rewire which I was not inclined to do. It is dark brown with coppery looking speckles of paint, but from the floor it looks great. The crystals are heavy per the electrician. He used gloves to not stain them. I am very pleased with this purchase. Close enough to the look that I was hoping for at a fraction of the cost of the other company.

      Beautiful fixture! Took hours to assemble... basically had zero instructions but was very easy once you got going. Had to refer to picture online several times. It turned out just beautiful! and even much better than pictured. I used every Crystal and it is important for you to use the gloves that it comes with to handle the crystals. It's truly a statement piece for your home. I very pleased with the entire purchase, value and product!

    • Gorgeous Light...cord is too short
      Verified Purchase

      I still gave this 5 stars, even though the cord is ridiculously short...because it says how long it is in the specs...but it's beyond stupid that it's that short. Other than that...just a beautiful light. The connectors for the crystals are also stupid in design and could be alot easier with small hooks..instead they are little metal circles like a tiny key ring. A pain. Make sure whomever is putting them all on has small fingers. My husband could not have manipulated them, period. The chandelier is beautiful and we are happy with it. I may end up having someone come in and lengthen the cord. Time will tell.

      This chandelier came very well packaged and we didn't have any issues with it when it arrived. We have this hanging over our kitchen table and it looks wonderful. We always get compliments when people come over. A couple things to note: - It's heavy. You will need help putting this chandelier up. - I would suggest putting it all together after you have it up and mounted to the ceiling. - We got it in black and it has held up very well over the last year. We do have to clean the clear pieces below the candles once in a while, but the maintenance is very low. - We tried using edison light bulbs, but the lighting ended up being too low without any supporting light in the room. We switch to just normal bulbs and it looks great. Also, we tried LED bulb and the yellow inside the builds made it look a little odd. No issue buying another one if we needed it. Cheers!

      Very nice quality, just wasn't exactly what I was looking for. This chandelier is more of a black with a glossy shine. I was looking for more of an oil rubbed bronze or matte look. Beautiful chandelier, just not what I wanted.
