Because of a large flat screen TV mounted behind my dining table, this chandelier was the perfect shape and size to light my dining room without obstructing the TV. The antique gold vines, leaves and tendrils are graceful and natural-looking, with the abundant crystal flowers creating ice-like sparkles everywhere. I used clear 40 watt chandelier bulbs on a dimmer; the radiating light pattern they make on my ceiling are yet another lovely addition to the beauty of this fixture.
Installation was easy, except that my electrician had to unscrew the two parts of the base first, and I advise a new buyer to wait until the fixture is installed to screw in the crystal flowers; otherwise, they tend to get in the way and come apart during installation. Also, a few flowers arrived broken, but the ATG company arranged to have replacements sent to me at no cost; and they saved me money from the beginning by not charging sales tax or shipping costs. All in all, this was a very easy purchase and I LOVE the chandelier!
