After reading some of the other reviews on this product I was a little hesitant to order this chandelier. However, since I have always had great success with Overstock products, I ordered it and I couldn't be happier. It arrived in perfect condition and was relatively easy to install (I did it myself). It is absolutely beautiful in my dining room. The yellow lamp shades look exactly as shown in the photograph - and when lit they give off a beautiful, calming light. I do have the light on a dimmer switch which really adds to the soft effect. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone.
