I purchased this chandelier for my dining area. I put it together myself. I helped my husband install it, very easy. It tooks us less then 1 hour to hang. I also purchased the Captiva Collection 5-light chandelier. The finish on both chandeliers make it look like an antique, it has almost a crackeled appearance. If you are looking for a perfect finish this is not for you. They bothe fit perfectly in my decor. I have open floor plan, so my dining area is sandwiched between my kitchen and great room. The ceiling is vaulted and the light hangs directly over my dining room table. My table sits 6. The light gives off the perfect amount of light. I was a little concerned about it only having 3 - 60 watt bulbs, but it is plenty. I am very happy with my selection.
