We ordered this for our entryway, which has a 10 foot ceiling. It's the first thing that people see when they come in the house, and they can't take their eyes off of it. The photo on this site doesn't do it justice. It is an absolutely beautiful light. It's contemporary, but very warm. It puts off a good amount of light, and it makes a great focal point for a room. We love it. We now have to try and top it for the lighting above our dining room table. We need something that will compete with this light, and it's been hard to find something that is even close. This light will work for a smaller dining room, but not for a large area. It isn't huge (as the dimensions state), and the light is shaded, so there isn't a whole lot of direct light from the bulbs unless you're right underneath it. It works perfectly in our entry hall, but probably isn't big enough to light an entire living room or bedroom. A smaller dining room would be fine, but you will probably want some extra light coming from canned lights, lamps, or an adjacent room. FYI, I had to remove about half of the chain, because it was very long (a good thing. You have a lot to work with). Also, I'd recommend putting the little crystals on before you actually hang the light, or else you'll be on a ladder for a while. This will also help when determining how low to hang the light, because those crystals hang down 4"-6" further than the chrome hardware. One of my crystals was broke, but I superglued it together, and it's not noticeable at all. It was very, very easy to hang and assemble. You don't need to know much about wiring to do this job. Just remember to shut off the breaker!
