Wrought Iron 5 Light Up Lighting Chandelier from the Scandia Collection
Love the light and the service
I love this light. I looked all over the usual places -- Home Depot, Lowes, etc. and could not find what I wanted - I spent a lot of time and fuel looking. After finding your website I literally pulled up the pic of this light in less than five minutes! It was exactly what I had been searching for and for a lot less money than I expected. Also, ordering the light was easy and it arrived quickly and packaged so that it wouldn't break - it looks and works great. I will never waste my time traveling to stores for my lighting needs again!

The color was somewhat surprising... I expected either black or a very dark bronze, but what I got was a rather artificial faux-looking, painted finish. The arms needed to be tightened to hold them in place so that they wouldn't move when dusted. Installation was easy since the light weighs very little. The generous chain length would make this suitable for a very high ceiling, but the whole fixture would probably be lost because of its small size. All-in-all, I'm satisfied with the quality for the price. In any case, it looks vastly better than the monstrosity it replaced.

cute, but internal wire was crimped and blew fuse
This light is cute, and the right size for my home office. I bought it from a different seller, so this review is for the light only. I installed it, turned the switch on, and... nothing. back and forth testing (just to be sure), and finally noticed that my pc was off. Un-installed the light, disassembled it, and found one of the internal wires was pinched and broke during assembly. Luckily, the wire was still long enough to fix. Reassemble, reinstall, and love it. I'm so glad I don't have to hire an electrician - an hourly rate would have cost me so much more than the cost of the light!

Not black like pictured
The light is very simple...just what I was looking for however it is brown not black like shown in the picture which is super annoying. I am not sure if I should send it back and order something else or just live with the color. I really wanted black. They should really change the picture.

Great looking light for the price
I looked everywhere for a small chandelier-style light for my foyer. The ceilings are not that high so light height was very important. I purchased lights 3 times the cost of this one and though they were too tall, looks-wise they were just "okay." I bought this light in desperation and I'm so glad I did!
I can feel the difference in workmanship from the other, more expensive lights because those were solid metal and very heavy. This light's arms and center seem to be hollow and it's very light. It doesn't look at all cheap, however. I am VERY particular when it comes to things in my house (champagne taste on a beer budget!) and this light doesn't look cheap or tacky. I got it in the Olde Iron finish. Every visitor we've had since it's been installed has complimented us on it.

I love it!!!
This is exactly the style I wanted, it wasn't easy to find and yet it was the least expensive of all the lights I looked at. But I didn't buy it because of the low price but because it was the only one that wasn't terribly gaudy and heavy looking. The brown color is perfect, I wouldn't have bought it if it were black. It's simple, classic and looks beautiful in my dining room. I'm very happy!

We had been looking for a nice chandelier that would fit our 100+-year-old house that didn't cost a fortune...this lamp is it! We got it in the Olde Iron finish, and it's perfect in our dining room. It was very easy to install as well. The service from Lighting Direct was great too - it arrived within 2 days of my order!

My order was shipped very fast and well packaged. We love the chandelier so much we put it up the very next day (kind of a miracle for us!). Looks GREAT and fits the house decor just right. And you can't beat the price!

better than I imagined
The package came quickly, all the parts were there and it was easy to install. A bit smaller than I thought, but doable. I am keeping a little extra chain in case a new homeowner needs the slack.

the chandelier is what I expected, but does not hang evenly as another review had stated.I like the look and am using it in a small dining area.
