I looked at many different sites for a black iron chandelier to put in our breakfast room. I did not want a shiny fixture. This is not shiny and has a great combination of a little rustic with sparkle. I call it "Rustic Elegance." The shades that come with it are fine - a slight bit of sheen to them but I want a more rustic look so have ordered burlap chandelier shades to use. We have quite a bit of slate in our kitchen plus wood floors so this adds just the right spark. It is very easy to put together. There is no instruction sheet as to where the crystals go but it's fairly straight-forward if you just look at the photo on the website. I don't agree with other reviewers who said they wish the "crystals" were faceted. This really wouldn't be appropriate for this type of fixture. Would make it way too dressy for the iron. I think it looks terrific and arrived without any sort of damage. I must say Overstock.com's customer service is awesome. The first time I ordered this UPS lost it. Before Overstock.com got the results of the lost package tracer, they ordered another one to be shipped to me via FedEx and it arrived within 4 days. I think it's a great choice for the money!
