Chateau Crystal 8 Light Chandelier
This fixture is everything that I had hoped it would be. I had one cap nut that did not fit the screw, and was sent a replacement as soon as I called. The people that worked with me could not have been kinder or more efficient. I would highly recommend Lightening Direct for your lightening needs.

I ordered the 6 light Chateau and was not pleased with the size, it was too small. Great price for the size, but the 8 light looks great in the dining room and I would recommend it for a moderate size dining area.

When electrician was at my clients home to install fixture he discovered that there was no chain or mounting kit in box w/chandelier. Had to call to get this sent to client. Then there still was 1 decorative screw missing. Was an extra expense paying the electrician to return a second time. Also a big embarrassment & hit on my credibility being the designer who sold this piece to a good client.
So much for quality control. Please work on this

After months of looking for -the- light, I was excited to have made a decision on the 8 light. Lighting Direct was easy and friendly to work with, and I would order from them again. As far as the light, once it arrived my excitement level dropped and continued to do so. I'm not sure if the box had been sitting in a warehouse that had water problems from the storm or what, but the box basically fell apart when I tried to open it. It looked like it had been opened and pulled out before. And the box was a bit damaged when it arrived. Everything seemed to be there, so I went ahead and assembled it. I did contact Lighting Direct and they offered to send a complete new one to me, but I didn't want to wait or be wasteful, so I went ahead and attempted to put it together. I think it must have been dropped or something because there were bent pieces, but nothing as frustrating as a screw that wasn't long enough. After 2 hours of trying to make everything work because of this screw I gave up. Eventually I called Lighting Direct and had them send me a new piece. Once that came I finished putting it together and my electrician hung it only to hear a vibration when the power was on. I think the bend or drop was causing more problems than just a look. We got it to a point that we stopped the vibration sound and we can just focus on the light. Once hung and in the room, it adds a beautiful glow and makes a nice statement. We wanted to bring the vaulted ceiling down, so the large 8 light does that nicely; the 6 would have been too small for what we wanted it to do. Our ceiling angle starts at 10ft and goes to about 18ft. We have the bottom of the light at about 7ft off the ground in order to be able to see the TV on the wall. If it wasn't there, I might hang it one or two inches lower. We have this in our "living/tv" side area of the great room to add a bit of rustic elegance.

This is a high-quality chandelier which really makes a statement. The crystals are lovely, and numerous, but the chandelier doesn't look old-fashioned. I placed mine over a round 72" table. This size is substantial, so make sure your room has the height and the width to support it.It was also very easy to assemble; I was able to do it myself, and just had the electrician install it.

Love the collection
I used this chandelier for a remodel project and ordered the semi-flush SF190MBZ for the entry and the WB1228MBZ for the hallway. They all matched perfectly and create a great atmosphere. As always, loved my interaction, thanks!

We hung this in the 18 foot foyer of our traditional style home and it looks spectacular! The smaller version of this chandelier hangs in our adjoining formal dining room. Love the old world look & charm. Very good quality!

It is stunning
This light is gorgeous and is an excellent size. Our dining room is 15'x13' with 18' ceilings. The six light would have been too small for the size of the room. Great buy!
