When it starts to get darkSo we moved into a new house with a open-concept living area. But, there is no lighting whatsoever, except for a ceiling fan over the eating area, which is very dim. When it starts to get dark outside, I can't read at the table because I can't see the words. So, I wanted a bright chandelier. I didn't want something with those little candelabra bulbs that barely give off any light. It also had to go with the semi-rustic style of this house and with the bar pendants, which have an oil-rubbe bronzeblack finish and cream shades.
This was perfect! And, now that it's installed, I am so glad I spent the money for it. It is bright, bright, bright. The 12 up light are standard based bulbs! Anything up to 100 watts. That's up to 1200 watts of light. Woo hoo! Then, there are 5 down-bulbs, which are not standard bulbs. They are up to 40 watts each. That's an additional 200 watts. Wow! That makes a grand total of 1400watts! And it really lights up the room. The light even makes the living area brighter!
My husband installed this fixture with minimal help from me. When he was getting it up, he asked me to hold 1 end while he hooked the other end. This fixture does require additional support, other than just a light box, because it is heavy, and because it has a long rectangular base that attaches to the ceiling. This was no problem for us, as our ceiling is real wood. But, if you have a plastered ceiling, you might want to look into this before purchasing.
The chains are adjustable, so if you have a high or slanted ceiling, that won't be a problem. Love the variety of finishes and shades available."..."Read more
