Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cameo Nice Light Once You Get it Up
I purchased this light to go in my bedroom. I wanted something a little more formal than a typical ceiling light. I've installed a lot of light fixutres but the instructions with this one had me totally confused so here's my advice.
Read the instructions to make sure you have all of the parts and none are damaged. Figure out how long you want the light to be and add about 12" to what you think you will need. It's a lot better to have some extra wire up in the box than to cut it too short. The quick link is wonderful! I wish someone thought of that a long time ago.
The wires on my light got twisted too. Turn the loop connected to the ceiling canopy counter clockwise to loosen the ferrule that goes up through the cross piece in the electrical box and make sure to tighten the collar as you play with it. Only use the instructions if you absolutely have to. Once I put them away and installed the light the way I normally do it went just fine.
I love the warm bronze finish and it goes well with my furniture. I also love the tea stained glass globes. They soften the light a bit. I added a ceiling medallion and purchased a dimmer switch so I can adjust the amount of light as needed. The light looks wonderful in my room and I could not be more pleased. I would have given it five stars except for the problem with the instructions.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by verymacguyver Something amiss
I wonder if they sold me a refurbished unit as new because there were several problems with the fixture. The first problem was that the instructions in the box were for a different product, which made them completely useless. I went online and found the PDF directions, which was annoying just because there were French pages mixed in with the English pages so I had to keep scrolling around to see the English picture with the English instructions. Be that as it may, the instructions felt like they were missing a few steps because if you follow them as written, I don't think they'd actually work (they don't really tell you the step where you actually get it connected to the plate on the ceiling, and if you thread the wire through the nipple before screwing it into the plate, then the metal ground wire starts to shred the insulation on the power wire, but if you don't then it's very difficult to thread the wires through the nipple later).
But even with incomplete instructions (in my opinion) I managed to get it installed. But when I flipped the power back on and turned it on, nothing happened. Long story short, using a multimeter and some detective work, I had to take it apart to find that the cheap clips which allow you to disconnect the lights and flip them over were not making a good connection because the metal prong on one side of the clip was retracted deep into the plastic shell. The only way to solve this was to cut off the plastic connector and make my own connection wire to wire with wire nuts.
I also noted that the wires which were to be connected to the power lines in the junction box were not marked, so it was impossible without a multimeter to know which wire to connect to the hot line.
I gave it two stars overall because once I hacked and swore and jury-rigged it to work, it looks great. But I'm pretty irritated about how cheap it was built and how hard it was to install. This is not the first light fixture I've installed, but this was the hardest.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dogs Very well-priced fixture
This was a replacement fixture for our dining room. It was remarkably easy to assemble and install in an existing junction box. It is not heavy so that helps immensely when installing. I am not particularly handy so easy does mean easy! I would recommend this fixture to anyone.

This item made the room beautiful and bright. Used three LED bulbs (13.5 watt / 100 watt equiv.) and a dimmer to set the appropriate illumination level. Mikey likes it! Three thumbs UP

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mom4Life Happy with purchase!
This was for over my kitchen table which has vaulted ceilings, appears a bit small for the space, should have gone with the 5 light, but overall am happy with my purchase. Had it installed professionally so I can't really say much on ease of installation, but for the price you can't beat it. Have had no issues at all and it looks great! Quality product for sure.
