I LOVE my chandelier. I read the other reviews and everyone said that it was more red than mahogany. That was one of the reasons I picked this one because I have not seen this color anywhere. This chandelier is very unique. You will not see this one everywhere and I love that. It's simple and elegant at the same time. I put it in my dining room over my big table and everyone notices it and loves it. My husband nor I are good at putting things together so we hired it done but I was told it was very simple to put together and it did not take long at all. I'm so glad I chose this piece. If this helps, my funniture in my dinning room is dark and the chandelier looks great with it.
