I love this chandelier! Got a lot of bang for my buck. I thought, because of the price that it may be chintzy or cheap looking, but I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of this light fixture. I bought this for my home office, where i work full time. It totally transformed the room into an elegant space. The pics don't do it justice. A bit tricky to put together and install, but it's do-able. I hooked it up to a dimmer switch, and I'm glad I did as it does throw off a lot of light. Funny thing is the way the light reflects off the walls....when I show people the room, they think I have a striped wallpaper on the wall (then I move the shade and the 'wallpaper' starts moving). You know it feels really good to get something that makes a huge impact for a great price, can't beat it. Highly recommended.
