This lamp looks even better in person than it does in the picture. Both the chrome and the crystal are shiny and look amazing when the light hits them. It was simple to assemble and took me about ten minutes to put together. It is simple yet elegant and definitely looks more expensive than what I paid. My only complaint is that the metal clips that are meant to hold the crystal balls in place are somewhat flimsy. Some of them couldn't hold the weight of the surprisingly heavy crystal, so I had to reinforce them with wire. Normally, I would have returned a product for something like that. But in this case, the flush mount setting ensures that the wire isn't visible from below. I would recommend this gorgeous lamp to anyone.
