I looked high and low for a nice but not too fancy rectangular chandelier large enough for a dining table that extends to seat 12. Couldn't find anything better than this at any price! The actual one I received was slightly different design as the base of each light there is a brass accent, and the stems for the lights are smooth round, not square with ridges. It is nicer than what is displayed. While the linen lamp shades are nice, they cast an opaque light downward and look yellowish when lit. I purchased mercury glass lamp shades from a popular chain home furnishings store instead, which really made a difference - added light and interest day and night. You won't find a 36" rectangular chandelier at this price and quality anywhere else - I already searched!
