We were looking for a large enough chandelier for our two-story great room, researched for a while and landed with this one because of its style and shape. It didn't disappoint us. Everything in the product description is accurate including pictures/look, dimensions, which really helped us to make sure it fits our needs exactly. The light fixture is not very heavy for its size, I think mainly due to its thin metal ring. We bought another smaller similar style chandelier for another room, which is much more heavier than this one. The only thing keep in mind is that you would most likely need to change all the light bulb to LED ones, it is great this light fixture comes with 24 light bulbs, but they are 40W each, which would give you 960W total, don't think anybody wants that. We bought 5.5W crystal clear LED light bulbs, which look great. Also you would need to get a dimmer as well, otherwise it would be very bright. Overall it is a great chandelier especially if you can get a good deal on the price. By the way my ceiling is 19 feet 1 inch high, and we used the whole length of the chain minus 3 rings, just to give you a reference.
Truly a stunning light in person. Beware this is HUGE. Even with 10 foot ceilings it is better suited over a dining room table where it hangs low enough with the "arms" that it can be touched by a 5'4" person. If your ceilings are higher, then you'll be fine. Similar in style as Restoration Hardware lights for a fraction of the cost. The Edison Bulbs included in this price easily saves you another hundred bucks. An impressive piece that definitely makes a statement in a home. Worth every dollar.
Bought this for our entry foyer which has 19ft ceilings. The previous wrought iron chandelier came crashing down as someone was attempting to clean the glass in it. So this chandelier fit the bill perfectly- no pesky glass to clean and it was an impressive size which was required with such high ceilings. I have to say the scale is bang on the money! At 4ft diameter the light is impressive and at full length of the supplied chain, the base of the fixture is 8ft, 2 inches from the ground. The only word of warning I would have is if you intend to install with a dimmer switch, you need to have a 1000w dimmer as an 800w dimmer switch might not handle the 24 x 40w lights (960 w). The Edison bulbs give off a warm light and not a great deal of light as is typical with Edison bulbs. The light is flattering though so would do well over a dining table provided the scale worked for your situation. Would buy again, even the electrician commented on how nice the light was.
The Gray Barn Hemsworth Chandelier is stunning. It is very large and definitely makes a statement in my living room. It is just what I needed with the tall ceilings.
Phenomenal piece. Looks 4x it's price and was easy to install (say my electricians). I exchanged LED Edison bulbs for the 24 bulbs it came with, put a dimmer on the circuit, and the result was exactly what I was looking for.
I bought three of these. I swapped out the edison light bulbs for candleabra edison LED type bulbs. I used E26/27 adapters available on Amazon and Ebay to switch to an E12 led candleabra bulb. The bulbs are much brighter than the edison bulbs and only use 4w per bulb instead of 40. If you do this, make sure you get the perfectly clear ones that mimic edison bulbs.
Love this chandelier. Just what I hoped it would be. Great quality for the price as well! I may switch out the bulbs for a little whiter light in my room. Over all an excellent purchase that fits perfectly with our 17 foot ceiling height. Used most the chain except about 15 inches just for reference. It arrived just two days after ordering as well so great for the impatient😀
So happy we chose this chandelier. We did "customize" it as it was a bit to long for us. Replaced the bars with matching chains and was able to take it up a needed 6 inches. Looks great. Would buy again.
I have been looking for a chandelier like this for years! I have eyed the RH chandelier about 2 years, but really felt guilty spending thousands of dollars. I am so glad I waited and researched, this chandelier is outstanding. You have to see in person! The color is beautiful dark brown. The edison bulbs are modern. The chandelier is huge, which was perfect for my high ceiling. Because of this buy, I will forever be an Overstock shopper. Thanks Overstock for delivering so promptly and for the free shipping, of course. If you are looking around, stop looking! I have researched for 2 years for a similar chandelier and really wasted countless hours. Buy it and enjoy it! I woke up early this morning just so I can drink coffee and enjoy my new chandelier! Pictures just don't do it justice, just like previous reviewers have stated. I better go, my coffee is ready and my new chandelier is on!
This is gorgeous!! The room isn’t done but it looks stunning even in the mess! After reading other reviews, I did decide to immediately replace all the bulbs with leds. I’m posting a picture of the bulbs I used. We also got a dimmer.
High quality. Very nice addition to a living room with high ceilings. I bought a longer chain elsewhere to hang from a 22 foot ceiling. Looks beautiful!
My electrician put this up in our two story living room easily. We did not need additional chain. I had him add a dimmer which I would highly recommend. This light looks so luxe and updated the entire look of of room.
Gorgeous! It’s a wow factor chandelier. We got this for our dining room and absolutely love it. If my great room wasn’t so close to our dining room, I’d want one in there too. I think it’s just a little silly to have the same chandeliers right next to each other, in two open rooms. Or... do I get another? Haha! Anyway, a lot of people have mentioned that it was too large for 10-12’ ceilings and I think it actually works just fine (but you have to not use the chain). We have a 2 story house and our great room is over 20’ ceilings so after I read the reviews, I figured if it didn’t work in our dining, I could put it there but it works in our 10’ ceilings dining! We have a super large round dining table, so this works perfect! Only problem with ours was that it didn’t come with one piece so we have it up but it’s not finished yet (waiting on the piece to arrive). The Edison bulbs are so pretty but I plan on switching them out to dimmable LED bulbs because of how hot the regular Edison bulbs get (and there are 24 of them!). And it’s bright, so we want to also switch our switch to a dimmer switch BUT this chandelier is worth all the extra work.
We love our new chandelier! What a statement maker! Excellent quality. BIG! I fell in love with the style of the chandelier when I saw one in the big name store catalog. I was thrilled to find it here for much less money.The photos of the previous reviewers helped me make a decision.I am so glad I bought it!It helped me put together my bedroom. I created a retreat in my master thanks to Overstock and a few quality products.I bought the rug, the chandelier, the curtains, and the bedspread. I am very pleased. I got a ton of compliments! We put our chandelier on a dimmer and I enjoy the versatility. I can use it for reading or ambiance. At night, dimmed all the way down the lights are glowing like candles. It does have yellowish light BUT I love it since, again, it creates a certain ambiance. The room feels very cozy!
We bought 2 of these light fixtures - one for a family room, and the other for an adjacent dining area in a brand new home. The model home had fixtures very similar to these and we loved the look. When we found them at overstock, we were thrilled. We had them professionally installed in rooms with 10 foot ceilings. They look really great! We love the urban rustic elegance. They are well built, light weight and install easily. They come with all the Edison style bulbs. They arrived on time, no damage. Simply thrilled.
The chandelier is amazing! I changed out the bulbs to LED Edison ones, and added a dimmer. It makes out living room so cozy. The only thing, is it was challenging to install. That may be because we’ve never installed a ceiling fixture before, but our 14ft ceilings and the size of the chandelier made it very awkward. (However, it’s quite light) highly recommend!
So we bought this chandelier w/ a dream of a very elegant living room. This chandelier does not disappoint. It makes quite the statement. I was intimidating to install it myself but it ended up going up with out any complications. It's lighter than it seems and with the long cord and the way you screw it up to the ceiling it is much easier than anticipated. It is bronze but at the same time it is very dark. If you told someone it was black and they were looking at it, they would believe you. We have 10ft ceilings and it is the perfect height with no chain and just the links. The only way to tell the pos/neg wires apart is that one has rivets in the sheath.
We love this fixture. We put led edison bulbs from 1000 bulbs, the website, into them instead. It would otherwise use a lot of electricity. Also it is hard to find a dimmer for such a high wattage fixture,with the incandescent bulbs. plus the idea of climbing a huge ladder every so often to change those just was too much. So led bulbs did the trick. It is a beautiful statement piece. We have a room that is 33x22 (the great room) with 20 foot ceilings that are vaulted. It looks like it was custom made for the space. Love it, wish I could post a picture.
