This chandelier is truly stunning! There are a ton of crystals and the drum shade is really sheer so you get to see the whole chandelier underneath. And because of the drum shade and the fact that the base of the fixture is chrome, it gives a beautiful contempory vibe along with traditional (transitional). I am an interior designer and this is hanging in my own master bedroom entrance. When visitors turn the corner to the bedroom, this is the first thing they see and they gasp....and they want one! I highly recommend this! Great wow factor!
