I recently hung this in my bedroom and it is perfect in a small/medium room. THe dark bronze matches my black/copper metal bed (also from overstock several years ago.) The crystals do require assembly, but what made me wonder was why the pins that hold the crystals are silver metal, when the chandelier is dark bronze/copper. So, I painted them after I attached the crystals. But it is really lovely and I am very pleased. Not your average chandelier.
