This is a great fixture especially for the price. It looks very modern and stylish. Many of the reviews have stated that it's incredibly difficult to hang....and it really was not. The directions are useless but as long as you take your time (two people) you'll be fine. One very interesting fact is that the 4 cables have an adjustable ratchet system on the canopy. Just depress the posts and the wire feeds in and out. Many reviewers complained about how difficult it was to level, but it's simple. Did I mention you need two people.
This is my primary light source in a great room. It adds a lot of style for the money. It looks clean and provides strong light.
This fixture is very stylish and looks great under my round table. It is large so it should be hung in a room that is not a small space. The only con was that there was no instructions included to hang the fixture or the wire covers so my husband had to go buy some. Otherwise, I love it!
What a hassle! I bought the smaller ones as well and they were difficult to hang--and so was this one. To boot, it comes together slightly differently than the smaller ones, so.. more grief. Yes, the instructions are very cryptic and, after some head-scratching and assembling, I handed it off to my father. I've hung fixtures before and didn't even nick a manicure, but this is for the AVID DYE-er--not a pike like me. It even made my Dad mad--and that NEVER happens. But it's up, it's pretty. It's cheap, though. The diffuser is plastic and it looks plastic. It came scratched. I wish it would recess into the shade less, so that the inner rim can't be seen form the bottom, but... details, details. Just prep yourself: read the directions, put it together before you hang it, get to know the mechanism that drops the wire... then get a second pair of hands. I also wrapped the shade in wax paper so I'd avoid finger-printing it. Once hung, I took it off and the angels sang. I'd recommend it, with lots of reservations.
Other reviews noted the instructions were lacking. I am mechanically inclined and did not have any problems installing the light. The wire descriptions are incorrect so you will need to confirm where each of the 3 wires go. I used a multimeter to confirm the wiring. My girlfriend and I love the light!
Really beautiful piece that completes a modern look in any room. Very, very chic.
I purchased this lamp for it's clean, simple design that coordinates with my decor. It's wide, circular shade fits well over my round dining room table. I like that it provides lots of light - up to 300 watts worth. I'm using four 60 watt bulbs in it and put it on a dimmer switch, so I can tone it down when that much light isn't necessary. It's a very versatile fixture that can work just as well in a modern, transitional or traditional style room. See my photo of what the fixture looks like from above. It's open- so no diffuser on top. I hung mine at my eye level and only a really tall person would see the exposed part.As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a DIFFICULT INSTALLATION. The instructions are very lacking - it's mostly a very basic diagram. If you aren't very mechanically inclined, I would recommend a professional installer or at least get a friend who can hold it while you hang it. I hung this myself solo and it took a long time to get it up there. Following are MY OWN TIPS FOR INSTALLATION - it's a lot of detail, but I hope it can save someone some time or headaches.I hung this on a regular height ceiling (8 foot I think), so I only used about 3 feet of the wire and cables. It came with about 9.5 - 10 feet of wire/cable length (from canopy to the fixture) so it's plenty long and suitable for tall ceilings also. That was actually a bit too much for me, as the ceiling box I mounted this too didn't have room for the excess electrical wire. I ended up cutting a good portion of it off, and had to strip the wires of their insulation. That was a pain as the outer jacket of the insulation is kind of rigid and it's possible to cut too far into the individual wires' insulation. Again, a professional would have no problem with this.The instructions don't mention anything about the adjustment/leveling of the four suspension cables and that's the real challenge. Each cable comes with these thumb-screw things that clamp down on it. These are the stops that determine the height you hang the fixture and adjust to level it once it's hanging. For each cable there are 2 clamps, one at the top near the canopy and one down by the lamp base. Before I hung anything, I used a tape measure to adjust each of these to the length I needed. It was tricky and you need to be precise to get them all the same. The clamp screws can be slid in one direction without unscrewing them (the direction opposite of the weight of the lamp would pull). That's good to know, so you can adjust them fairly easily to the fraction of an inch. If you move it too far, you will have to unscrew it and slide it back, then tighten it down. It's a very small part and requires a bit of finesse. For the clamps down by the lamp base, I left an INCH OR TWO OF SLACK, so I have room to adjust and level after it was hanging (see photo below).After that, it's a fairly straight-forward hanging and wiring process. Once it's up there, you'll probably have to level it out.Images/Videos shared by: RyStar
Instalation service - excellent
Great product used it for a contemporary feel in an older home for staging... see the pics!Images/Videos shared by: [@]
Frame required some bending to get square/straight and ballanced.
Great end product, but wire shade frame required some bending to make shade hang straight.
Very nice quality. Was difficult to hang - instructions are pretty useless, but once it was up, it was gorgeous.
I dig this light.
Beautiful lamp that decorates and illuminates perfectly. It has changed and upgraded the look of our dining room area. I definitely recommend it.
