I've been eyeing this pendant at**** home for a while now waiting for the price to drop from $454.99 - it finally did to $350. When I saw it here for $*** - I thought it may be a poor knock-off but I took a gamble and it's the same light fixture. It's a great transitional piece if you have a mix of contemporary and semi-traditional decor. The shade is more of a cream than a white but it's neutral enough to blend with many settings. It looks chic, expensive and current. The only downside was that the metal tube where you need to pass the wiring through the crystal ball base was very narrow and almost impossible to pass the wires through. The acrylic board had some minor cracks and the shade had some spots on it. I reached out to Overstock.com and replacements are on their way - what terrific service for terrific value!
