This is one of the most beautiful chandeliers I have ever seen, I stop and admire it every time I walk by the dining room. our house is craftsman style, with lots of straight angles, simple bold lines, and oil rubbed bronze....this chandelier works beautifully with the simple drum shape and oil rubbed bronze finish, but the sparkle and the crystals just add a really playful element that softens up all the heavy, straight elements of the house. It's a great chandelier if you're looking to combine the masculine (the heavy, simple drum shape), the feminine (the swarovski-like crystals), and a some whimsy (the drop crystals). Ours is hanging near dining room windows that get lots of sun, so the effect is fabulous all day. And we live on a corner and when I was walking the dog yesterday afternoon I noticed that when I looked into the window during the daytime the chandelier was sparking like crazy from the inside...and the sun wasn't even on it. Did not expect that. If you get this chandelier get clear candelabra bulbs, bc then with all the hundreds of little reflections on the crystals you won't even be able to see where the bulbs are, pretty great. Oh, and this is a chandelier that definitely calls for a DIMMER, you get a remarkable range of mood with these crystals and a dimmer....so grab a $7 dimmer from your hardware store and install that at the same time to get the full wow effect.
