This is a beautiful light fixture - it looks just like the picture, including the color of the shade. There is a seam that goes up the side of the shade that is quite visible. I have that facing towards the side of the room where it will not really be seen. It looks great in the room, and I'm very happy to have it.
I have a small dining room and this chandelier is a perfect size for the room with just the right amount of lighting. The picture on line is excellent and so I was not disappointed in any way with the actual chandelier.
I ordered this for our dining room, which we are remodeling. It is even more beautiful than pictured. It is absolutely perfect, gives off lots of light. We have a dimmer switch, which I think we will use most of the time, there is so much light from this chandelier. It is the perfect size for our dining room (which is 14 x 14). There was quite a bit of chain included so we could have looped it and hung from a hook if we had wanted, but we just took out the extra links and hung directly from ceiling. It has a switch on the light for candelabra, downlight, both, or completely off. Excellent delivery service. Ordered on a Saturday and received it the following Friday. Very, very satisfied. Love it!!
We were looking for sconces for our vacation home in Tahoe. I needed something simple, but a decent size for a very high ceilinged room. I considered lots of options, but went with these both for the simple "lodgy" look and for the price, that was less than half of the others. My contractor had them installed last week. He was incredibly impressed with the product and incredibly surprised by the price I paid! They give off great light, too. I'm thinking of getting them put on dimmer switch, just to give some flexibility, as they are quite bright on "full beam" Very pleased.
I wanted a small chandelier for my breakfast room and I wanted the lights shining down on my table and not up at the ceiling. It was easy to put together and looks beautiful. I am very happy with my purchase.
We first saw this chandelier in our daughter's house. She had a spare one, so we packed it and mailed it to ourselves. Big mistake! It arrived with broken panes. I was extremely pleased to locate this light at Lighting Universe. My wife really wanted this particular fixture.
I have not mounted this chandelier yet. I opened it, so what I write is regarding its condition. The chandelier was well-packed, with sufficient cushioning that even though the outside of the box looked like it had some rough handling, the contents were not damaged at all. The yards of paper wrapping cushioned it well.
As for the lamp itself, having seen it at our daughter's house, it is very attractive. It has an onboard switch to allow it to be changed from off, the small bulbs only, the downward-pointed bulb only, or all bulbs lit. This flexibility allows you to set the mood you wish. The small bulbs are candelabra-base while the downward-pointed light has a regular-sized base.
The most difficult part of putting up this type of lamp is weaving the cord through the chain and feeding it through the mounting at the top. Other than that, it is fairly straight-forward. Although one person can install this, if there is a second person available to steady the fixture while the other works at the ceiling level, that would be helpful.
The fixture itself looks like it will hold up well. However, if something happens and one of the panes is broken, it is not possible to repair. The framing for the glass is soldered and the glass is not sold separately. That would not be so much a problem if the complete shade portion were available for purchase, but it isn't. Therefore, please be careful with it as repair of the glass is not possible. If it were, I would have given the top rating for value.
I love this light. It is very pretty in my foyer. I wanted something wide but close to the ceiling because I have high ceilings and the immediate entryway is narrow so it fit perfectly. I have a transom window above the 8 ft. door and the light looks beautiful through the window. You can hang it flush mount or it comes with a chain if you want to lower it. The shipping time was excellent also.
I am an ex-contractor.Did a lot of custom work.Doing our own home exterior over.Looked at every wall sconce I could find on line.No big box store had unique lights to our taste.Settled on this.Better than I expected.Great packaging.Arrived 2 days early.Easy install for someone w/ that skill.You'll need a 4.5" X 8.5" siding block for a clean flush fit.Actual finish a little darker than presents on computer screen but very attractive.All cast alum construction,very lite but seems very sturdy.My wife says we are buying more for all the doors.Did sides of garage so far.
Although I have not yet installed this fixture, I was glad to find what seems to be an identical match for the no-longer-functioning one that I plan to replace. I hadn't been able to find it in any of the three Big Box home repair stores near my home This was also the best price online.
This fixture is ok not great. Seems a tad below grade, metal is thin and brass color is not rich golden,but yellow.I think it is overpriced and a drawback is the restocking fee and 2 way shipping if returned. this is a bit large, gives good light I had called about the finial color on the globes and was told they were brass, but they are white.I would only recommend to a friend if they actually saw the fixture and felt it was what they wanted. Good customer service,courteous and as helpful as possible when they can't see the item because it is at another warehouse.
This light fixture came damaged but my husband was able to find a better part at the hardware store to repair it. We have it in our entrance and it almost matches our dining room fixture. The pattern on the glass is a little different. We like it very much.
The alabaster is gorgeous and the overall size is large. It hangs down low, so be sure to measure to make sure tall people won't knock into it. From above, you can see the bulbs, as we can as we walk down our main staircase, and that isn't a great view, but from below, it's gorgeous.
We purchased this chandelier sight unseen. We had purchased a Fanimation fan FP5220PW for over our island in the kitchen. That fan has a pewter finish. This light is black bronze, but with pewter accents that coordinate very well with the fan. We couldn't be happier!
I had been looking for the perfect light for the last 6 months, I knew when I saw it, it would be the one. Came across lighting universe by accident at work. Called, asked some questions due to lack of description. Light took longer then some stuff to ship, once in FedEx hands, I was able to track it. Light was packed well, really light and went up really easy. The light is beautiful, modern, and has a touch of class. I've got many compliments on it already. The only thing on the negaitive side would be the price, $154 was a little high considering I just paid $103 for a huge 20" hanging kitchen table light of the same alabaster glass and brushed nickel. But again - this was the light I wanted!
The light came with 24 inches of chain. With the current ceiling hights of many homes today (10-12 ft), this is not enough for a light of this type to be installed with the proper height. You need a minimum of 5ft to get the proper hight over your eating table.
