I bought this item to bring a little funk into our home. It looks fantastic over our dining room table in our eclectic 1927 arts and crafts home. It compliments the "funk factor" of our zebra upholstered chairs. It hangs over the table, but it is also in front of a large window. When the sun hits the chrystals is looks amazing! The quality of this item is average. It's chrome and pretty light weight. It came with 21 double sided chrystals. I got what I expected quality-wise and was happy enough. I orginally saw this chandelier in NYC for over $1000...so $230 worked for me. Installation is challenging. My husband recently re-wired our entire house. It took us three hours to install this thing. A cocktail in hand might helpfully lubricate the installation process. Buy it. You'll love it!
