My husband and I were looking to replace a polished brass chandelier in our newly purchased condo. We were looking for a five light chandelier and one that gave enough light to play board games or card games without eye strain. This chandelier was the perfect choice. The brownish rust color almost perfectly matches the wood furniture that we have in the room and does not clash with the doorknobs and other hardware that are still polished brass. The simplicity of the piece gives a much more modern look to the dining area. We inserted 60 watt bulbs and we have it on a dimmer. Dimming the lights for meals is fine and the full wattage for card or game time is plenty for us to be able to see properly. Nicely priced as well, I did my research at the other online lighting sites.
