After a total revamp of my bedroom I had been looking for a light fitment, with absolutely no chrome, very hard to find at the moment. I spotted this one on Amazon, ordered it and then worried when I read more and realised that it had such a long drop, our house does not have very high ceilings. When I opened the packaging and saw it, I still wasn't sure. Wow! this looks gorgeous when it is hanging, even the electrician commented. It does hang quite low, but doesn't look excessively so. I am really pleased with this light, and would definitely recommend it, it looks timeless and elegant.
