Rated 5 out of 5 by novazzz Cool and effortless pendant
I'd been looking for a chandelier for my dining room for a long time, but couldn't find anything that I really wanted; and then I saw this. I needed something wide because my dining table is large, but the ceiling is sort of low, so the shallowness of this 'flatbrim' shape worked perfectly. I loved the irregularity of the shape online and in person as well. When I first saw it, it reminded me of Lydia's hat in "Beetlejuice" and it had this austere feel to it, but it's dramatic at the same time. So the quality is nice; the mesh looks blackened and then parts of a more pewter tone shine through. When it's lit, the whole thing sort or illuminates from across the room. I've tried it with an Edison bulb which looks nice, and a soft white incandescent which was also nice. Because the room is quite dark, I may try a chrome-bottom bulb to bring the light up. My husband removed some chain links to shorten the chain and installed the lamp easily. Overall, a great great purchase. Also, if you were up for a project and wanted the mesh to look for dense, you could weave in between then mesh, fabric or string or leather or something.
