Six Light Island / Billiard Fixture from the Modus Collection
My husband and I were impressed at how fast the delivery was. It was a little hard to adjust the cable on both side and to balance the fixture. Overall, we are very happy with the product.

Build quality a little low
I now have this chandelier installed, but without the help of the useless instructions, which are generic and don't apply to this product. Even the parts included are generic and you have to ignore the extra items in the packet. To install, first secure the base plate to the ceiling. Then place the lamp frame on a protected floor,and trim the hanging wire and power wire down closer to your preferred hanging height. This will get the extra length out of the way and make it easier to deal with without a tangle of extra wires. The hanging wires go through the canopy and are secured with a nifty nipple, you press it in to adjust the length. I gave myself a foot of leeway, then set the unit on a box on a chair on a table, then connected power, and secured canopy to base. There is a little gap at the top and the extra hanging wire is poking out the side. I will do a final adjustment and either tuck in or snip off extra. For the shades, remove the nut and collar off the frame, install shade, then collar, then nut. I suggest low profile bulbs since regular bulbs are stick out over the top and you can see them if the unit is low. I am using 60w, which is plenty of light in a smaller room. The shades give off a golden light. You have to take this into consideration with your decorating. My paint color in the room is also in that hue, so needless to say everyone entering has a bit of a golden glow that might be nice at a restaurant but is a little much at home. The lamp is hanging crooked and I need to do some adjustments to the rods, hopefully without breaking, to get it straight.
