Rated 5 out of 5 by TinaJ Amazing value To be clear, this is a very simple chandelier and I think the price is very fair for what it is and the materials used. That being said, I've seen fixtures in the same type of style that are priced two or three times higher. Knowing that, this chandelier is quite a find. I blog about interior design and light fixtures are a particular interest of mine. I have very expensive taste. So when I found a chandelier for less than a hundred dollars that also had 3 sockets that can accommodate up to 60 watts each and therefore adequately light my dining room, I was about ready to hit Add to Cart immediately. Then World Market had a lighting sale and the price was temporarily slashed in half. I am not an impulse buyer but there was no way I was resisting that and I ordered it immediately. My fiance and I removed our old (very outdated) fixture and installed this one in about 45 minutes. It would have taken less time but the first time we tested it didn't appear to work. I discovered that the middle socket on ours is a little touchy, after wiggling it a little bit it worked and has ever since. The black finish is classic and easy to like. I have Edison bulbs in it and I love the style they add to the room. Do note that if you need this to give off a decent amount of light you will want to find bulbs with a higher than normal lumen output for Edison bulbs. I found bulbs with 400 lumens, many are only around 200 so watch out for that. Ours is on a dimmer which I also highly recommend especially when you have exposed bulbs that may sometimes be jarring to your eyes at full brightness. Also note that this fixture is rather long. The cord is completely hidden into the ceiling for us so the remaining rigid rod down to the bottom of the middle bulb is 48". Our dining room has ceilings that are a couple inches shy of 8 feet which is the standard, and the middle bulb hangs a bit low above our table, but I kind of dig it. In summary, I love it. I'm so glad to have a dining chandelier that reflects my style and adds to the room instead of bringing it down like the old one did. Thank you World Market for the great value! April 10, 2015
