I found the chandelier of my dreams at Potterybarn.com. Expensive, yes! but finally I found a very reasonable facsimile over at Overstock.com – so similar I’m sure it’s done in the same factory overseas.
A few differences: the candle sticks have an orange look, the pin assembly for the crystals is with wire pins and not screws and I noted the electrical wire is white. But for a difference of over $180, I can work around the things I don’t like. Having combed through the reviews I can see that others had the same issues and worked around them. Many spray painted the candle sticks to a lighter color – I can do that. And others either painted over or used a perm marker to color the pins. Assembly is the same, that being tedious, but possible. I assume as well since I have to assemble the hard wiring, I can swap the power cord out for a darker cord. I even save 10% by being a new customer on Overstock and got free shipping.
