Rated 4 out of 5Â by jbreitmun A few modifications and it was perfect!
Let me start out by saying this light is big but grand. Without the chain, the main body is almost 30 inches. Make sure you have a tall ceiling when you are planning your installation. I decided to hang mine in the stairwell down to our basement. Our basement is mostly finished but with the addition of this light it makes you feel you are walking down into a grand space! It is a beautiful brushed nickel, heavy duty piece. Assembly was a little difficult as one of the six arm pieces did not line up correctly with the screw holes. It took me a little time to get it to bow/bend to match the other ones but it was doable with a little patience. Also the 12 arm screws they give you have a completely smooth head (I know it's for aesthetics) but it makes it really difficult to tighten them to the main fixture. Otherwise, the instructions are really easy to understand and all the hardware needed to mount this light to an existing ceiling box is included. It takes 3 (up to 60W each) candelabra light bulbs (not included) and I chose to install LED soft white candelabra bulbs-saves energy and gives it a pleasant glow.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by willwgp Wonderful Upgrade for the Stairway!
When we first moved into this house, we noticed a light hanging over the stairway that was hard to access. We also didn't feel that it made the stairway worth climbing! This fixture looks so much better!
The installation was definitely the hardest part. Sometimes the simple things in life are STILL a challenge to put together. We had to get a special ladder in order to even reach the light, and it took a lot of teamwork between my fiance' and I. But once I got up there, I was able to do the rest on my own. The fixture is pretty heavy, but I got it up there.
I've said this before: it would be nice if everything was just put together in box, so all I had to worry about was wiring the thing up and calling it a day. But it was definitely worth the effort. It would have also been nice if the spring clip was on both ends of the chain, so all I had to do was get the chain to the height I needed it, so I would only have to worry about clipping the fixture, and going through the rest, without having to bend the chain with pliers.
The fixture is so amazing; it looks like it belongs there on the stairway. And now it makes the ceiling look higher than it really is. It looks fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hejoanne Beautiful and elegant pendant
I am so tired of all the bronze/black chandeliers out there until I found this. The brushed nickle finish makes the pendant stands out from the group. It is simple yet elegant. The frame feels solid to the touch. Very easy to install. Price is good. Very happy with my new pendant.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by PJCC Minimalist design fixture for high ceilings, flexible design options
Brightly lighting an average sized high ceiling living area that primarily needs evening lights. This lighting fixture's name denoted old England while the look is more minimalist German. At Xmas I'll add leaves to the chain and a bird on the fixture.
Installation was easy, just matching wires. I got a 2nd opinion as to which wire was hot to distinguish between the waffle and plain covered wires. I wish they would just tag them with colored tape. As for special tools, this required a ten foot ladder in a medium priced standard home with a "high ceiling". The fixture materials, light at 7 pounds, worked for a woman doing the installation alone in a high ceiling.
The fixture frame went together fast. You could choose to attach the frame bars scrolls down instead of up. If you use your imagination many items can be added to this frame to enhance the design seasonally.
I used two 60 watt and one 25 watt bulbs. This illuminates the average high ceiling living room and gives a little drama to the ceiling as pictured.
Open patio doors leave dust on our living room light fixtures. This minimal frame fixture will clean up with one long handled fluffy brush and a few swipes, yeah.
I study metal art designs, as that goes I found this steel fixture cheaply made, but for the price point adequate. Taking the quality of the metals in balance with other issues it rates between 3 and 4 stars.
