This light is very beautiful and when all was said and done, it was just what we wanted....but it took quite a while to get there. I ordered this light and assumed from the picture and the description that it was a semi-flush light, not a chandelier. I guess I am just naive. We ordered this light to put in a very, very small hallway from our living room to our bedroom that has transoms. We wanted to use the light to hang down about 18 inches to be visible through the transoms. When it arrived we were both very excited. When we opened the box and removed the parts to hang the light we saw the chain and realized that the light was actually a chandelier and not a semiflush. It just wasn't going to work for our application. Next, we realized that the light had next to no instructions. Fortunately, my husband is awesome and was able to modify the light to hang it the way we wanted (after over hour of installing and taking it out to try different things, filing and scavenging parts from another light). I will definitely caution you...it doesn't look much like what is pictured. Our light doesn't have four hanging rods, it only has three. Second, the colors are very different. It has purple and a lot of white. It doesn't have the ivory glass that is pictured. After a lot of work on our part, it works for us as a semiflush.
