I just finished a kitchen addition and put this in the renovated dining room above the table. It adds just the bling I was looking for. My open kitchen/dining room is transitional with white shaker cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and all my other lighting is in satin nickel, including schoolhouse pendants over the island. This light is the unique feature and just glows above the table. Everything goes so well together. The light itself is flawless. It came packaged perfectly. You hang the beads separately. (I found this to be a relaxing task in the midst of a crazed reno.) I read one review where someone said hers was a bit crooked. Did not have that at all. It's a bit larger than I thought it would be, which is just what I wanted. My electrician called it a "birdcage." Ha. I'm quite pleased!
