I am so happy with my purchase!!! I looked for a chandelier for our dining room for two years, and have never seen anything like this! I wanted something that would satisfy my husband's modern style while giving me something a little glamorous and unexpected. I fell in love with this chandelier because the modern pendant shape is what you see in all the design books and modern furniture stores...but the crystals gave this a fabulous twist. After reading all the rave reviews, I had to see it for myself - so glad I did!!! Yes, it takes a little time to put on the crystals - but like everyone says, it's just a night or two in front of the TV. Very easy and so worth it!!! My husband installed it himself, it is very easy. Please note the chain has a caribiner clip that allows you to adjust the height before you hang it. My daughters and husband say it's the best thing I ever bought! Another note - it looks amazing with frosted bulbs! Clear bulbs are a little too much for me, more like a disco ball. I bought this with another chandelier that I am returning and I just wanted to say how thrilled I am with Overstock's customer service - they are so kind and make it so easy. You never see that anymore.
