Heavy, Difficult To Change Bulb
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I typically don't spend so much on lighting, but I really wanted to splurge on a beautiful chandalier. I absolutely love this one, even though bulb changes are a terrible pain in the butt. My only problem is that the item came damaged. Two of the light stems appear to be bent inward and one of the three "hooks" that hook to the chain is also slightly bent inward. The result is that the chandalier hangs at a slight angle. I didn't realize pieces were bent until I'd already paid an electrician to hang the thing (no idea why he didn't mention it to me before he finished installing it), and now I can't afford to have it redone with a new one. My ceiling is too high for me to re-do it myself, and the item is too heavy. Serves me right for not checking it over, but just be sure you look yours over really well before you put it up. I'm a little surprised that it was bent at all...it's seems really sturdy, and the box wasn't smashed at all. Though, perhaps it wasn't bent, but welded improperly.
