We could not be happier installing this chandelier in our morning room and enriching the dÃ©cor. This unit is just as solid as the quality and elegance it carries. Bronze/Copper finish color is a perfect complement to our existing color theme.
The chandelier is fairly easy to install only if 2 people complete the task. Installation instructions document is just a piece of paper that doesnât offer any help. We tried different ways to install but for us the fastest way was; (1) Measure how low or high you want the chandelier to hang so you can adjust chain links and cut the extra cable. (2) Assemble full chandelier on the floor excluding shades+bulbs (3) Attach the rod to the mounting bracket and screw it in all the way by spinning the bracket so the rod pops out (1/2 inch) on the other side of the bracket. (4) Make sure there is no power in the Ceiling box (5) Get on the ladder with the Chandelier and screw in the mounting bracket in the ceiling box and let the chandelier hang (6) Connect the cables and close the canopy (7) Attach the shades and bulbs (8) Adjust the shades distribution. Thatâs it.
If you install the mounting bracket to the ceiling box first, and then try to screw in the rod into mounting bracket, you might end up spinning the chandelier to screw in the rod. But spinning the chandelier will spin the cables too. Not a good idea.
It offers 12 slots for bulbs, each up to 60-Watts max. Now, if you use the 60W bulbs that come with this chandelier, then you are looking at 720 Energy Watts total. This number can really add some good digits to your electric bill. I bought ecoSmart 40-Watt Equivalent bulbs from HomeDepot that uses only 9 energy watts each. Collectively producing 480-Watts equivalent light but consuming only 108-Watt in energy (612-Watts in savings). If you prefer to use the regular bulbs instead, then install a Dimmer on the On/Off switch to save some energy. Itâs all up to you.
Since the opening of the shade is facing upwards, it will cause the dust to be collected inside the shades. So, if you are planning to hang the chandelier some place really high (like foyer area), you will need a ladder to clean the chandelier since a tall broom will simply not do .
This unit is UL listed, it does give you piece of mind that itâs been tested by certified people dedicated to public safety. We love it.
Go buy it, you will like it.

This chandelier is beautiful in every way. Packaged so well, with easy to follow installation instructions, and gorgeous soft light globes as the reward for hanging it! We absolutely love it in our dining room - the twelve globes provide tons of light, but with upward facing light bulbs, the room is cast in a soft glow which doesn't disturb diners. High quality and value - this light looks very expensive, like one might see in a high-end setting. The metal is a pretty hue - it goes with brass, bronze, glass - any decor. It would be stunning in a tall foyer, bedroom or large living area, in addition to the dining room!

This light is beautiful. Due to size being too large for my small dining room, I had to return it.
