I ordered a Williamsburg style, brushed nickel chandelier. It was well priced. It was nice to be able to get a fixture that not currently being shown in Crate and Barrel. The shipping was prompt and efficient. It was a good experience, and would use this site again. mrw
We bought this chandelier to replace an older light fixture in our dining room. We were amazed at how elegant this fixture looked when we opened the package and when we installed it. It arrived in just 2 days and my husband was able to hang it without any help and with no problems at all. With 12 lights it really illuminates the entire room. We love it.
The light is very nice looking. The instructions were a nightmare however and I had to call Lighting Universe for some clarity. Leveling this unit took a good amount of time and it still doesn't look 100% straight if you stare at it. I would recommend lower wattage bulbs than LU sells as you can cook a roast on them when turned all the way up.
5012 williamsburg 12 light chandelier as a combined birthday/christmas present
The 12 light chandelier was enthusiastically received by the lady who was getting it as a combined birthday/Christmas present. The satiny texture and dull pewter/gold finish were completely harmonious with the existing setting of the dining room where the chandelier was placed.
One technical note. The chandelier is supplied with 12 60 Watt candelabra bulbs which at full power draw 720 Watts. This is significantly higher than the 600 Watt limit of most 3 way dimmer switches. IF the lamp were supplied with 40 Watt bulbs, the resultant load of 480 Watts could be easily handled by a standard 600W-3 way dimmer, saving a lot of money.
I was very glad to find a site that has such a wide variety to choose from. I am very satisfied with the product and service. You are saved on my favorite list and would highly recommend this site to anyone. Thank you!

The quality of this light is as described. However, I am unhappy with the way it looks and am going to replace because it is almost BLACK. I thought it would be bronze. However, it is a VERY DARK bronze. I feel my kitchen looks as if it is ready for a Halloween party year-round, ugh!
