Rated 5 out of 5 by MisTmorn This unique chandelier was remarkably packaged.
I had viewed the chandelier in the catalogue many times but after I actually saw it in a nearby store I knew it was what I wanted in my new home. It has a unique design that reflects a certain "lightness" and the leaves and crystals added to the theme I desired.
The most remarkable part was the extraordinary frame to which this delicate chandelier had been fastened. It took quite some time to remove the chandelier from the frame but not a single delicate leaf nor crystal had been bent, broken or damaged in any way. I certainly applaud whoever designed the frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sherra This fixture really updated my kitchen.
This chandelier came packaged very carefully. Was completely intact, and easy to unpack. Was a snap to install, and looks beautiful hanging above my kitchen nook table. I chose the dark iron, and used cute little shades to dress it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nurseja I am very happy with the chandelier.
I love the leafy look of the chandelier and the crystals that are somewhat randomly placed. Very unique without being too formal. The size is perfect for my room which is smallish and really adds interest to the room.

I had been looking for the past year for a chandelier to put in my 12'X12' dining room. I wanted a little sparkle with the right proportions for my small dining room. The local big box stores didn't have anything I liked, so I figured I might as well give the internet a try. Thank goodness for Ballard Designs, the moment I saw this chandelier, I knew it was the perfect chandelier. Delivery was fast and I helped my husband hang the chandelier, it was fairly easy. Thanks Ballard Designs, I love my chandelier.

It's lovely - the bronze color is very dark and is a perfect mix of traditional and updated uniqueness. The shipping package was very protective, and it arrived in perfect shape. Installed along with a new ceiling medallion, it's really made a statement in my living room! Plus, I swear I just saw it on an episode of Dear Genevieve. ;)

We've gotten many compliments on this chandelier and are very happy. It came very well packed but, unfortunately, one of the crystals was damaged. Nothing a drop of crazy glue couldn't take care of and I had the chandelier hung in no time.

by adancediva Perfect size for a small dining room.
I just love this chandelier! It really makes the dining room look lovely and inviting. It is a perfect size for my round dining room table which measures 48 inches across.
The chandelier arrived very well packed and not a crystal was bent or broken. The item was delivered very quickly after the order was placed.

I love it! This chandelier created a big impact in my dining area. It was exactly the right focal point for the room. I've been searching for a new chandelier the last two years and not only was this a perfect fit it was very affordable in comparison to similar lighting.

I put the petite claire chandelier in my small kitchen and order 6 arm claire chandelier for my dinning room...Love them both...I placed hand painted shades on the chandelier in the dinnning room and left the kitchen chandelier bare, so they have two totally differnet looks..They were shipped so securely..I have always been so satified with all my products from Ballards..Just wish we had a store in the Raleigh, NC area..

This chandelier is stunning! It looks gorgeous and the price can't be beat. Shipping was fast and the packing was perfect - the electrician was very impressed! It was easy to install (for the electrician!) and I couldn't be more pleased. Makes a nice statement.

This chandelier looks beautiful right out of the box. I could have purchased a similar one for a few dollars less, but I would have had to put all the crystals on myself. Saving the few dollars was not worth it to me. This comes in a frame that protects it, and everything arrives at your door in perfect condition ready to be hung, and the quality of the fixture is excellent. You get what you pay for. I would buy another chandelier from Ballards because of the quality of their merchandise, and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandmotherof4 The chandelier met all my expectations.
I was thrilled with the 6-arm Claire Chandelier. It was packed securely, and the electrician had no problems installing it in my dining room. I already have had wonderful responses from friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dba01 STUNNING CHANDELIER!!
this chandelier is everything everyone else said and more. it is absolutely stunning! arrived packaged as everyone noted...in a metal frame and secured firmly with binding. only issue is that the bottom of the frame should have a screw to take out to remove rather than twirling it to get it off...kept hitting bottom crystals and arms so had to go very slowly and carefully. but that is the ONLY thing that could have been improved upon!! handyman hung it together with a Ballard ceiling medallion i had purchased for another room but hadn't used and it is the most gorgeous thing EVER! fixture finish is fabulous, crystals are beautifully scattered, and candle-like covers look antique..the 6 arm is fairly large as the arms are all around rather than layered as I had thought, so be sure to check the size you need as this one is quite large! the larger one must be for true mansions...and must be out of this world!! But in my kitchen/dining area this one is the eyecatcher...and I have a brand new kitchen with gorgeous cabinetry, etc so it took this fixture to put it over the moon! Ballard is a fabulous company to work with in every area, quality, customer service, EVERYTHING! I ordered this on the last day of a sale, a sunday, and it arrived on thursday! you won't be disappointed in any aspect of this fixture!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by McCawhome Beautiful updated look for my dining room
I have been enjoying my new chandelier for awhile now. It looks beautiful and has added an update to my traditional dining room. I am using it with shades on the lamps but think it is just as beautiful without. May change the look for the holidays by using candles alone. This is a great value as I almost ordered one from another well-known catalogue for $100. more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyshopper1 an incredibly beautiful lighting fixture
I redcorated my dining room and wanted the perfect fixture to finish it. I've never ordered a chandelier from a catalog before, but I loved the pictures of this piece and hoped it would live up to them. It not only lived up to them but exceded them. It is stunning. How it was shipped, suspended in the box, was much appreciated by my electrician. He was expecting to have to assemble the chandelier, but that was completely unnecessary. It took only minutes to hang it. I thought it might need chandelier shades for the arms, but I wouldn't use them. The light needs to reflect directly off the crystals to show how beautiful the chandelier is.

These reviews helped a lot soooo here goes: It is beautiful and it certainly enhances my dining room just in time for the holidays. An engineer must have packed it I have never seen anything packed like that!I use mine without the little shades and put a dimmer switch on it. At night with the dimmer on and the crystals it is magical.It is a beautiful, functional, piece of art, and I love it!

Just hung this in my dining room today and it looks great.
Really finishes off the room with elegant lighting. I also wish it was a bit more gold and less bronzey, but overall, I am very happy with this purchase-- especially for the price paid.

This chandelier is lovely. I ordered the etruscan gold which is a dark, antique gold, just as I was hoping it would be. It is lovely and perfect for my dining room. Really just what I wanted and for a great price. The 6 arm is a very generous size also.

This chandelier is a perfect fit in my round dining room with rock walls. It looks great without the shades, too! My ceiling was pretty low so I didn't use the chains - it still looked very nice.
What a great item on sale!!! THANKS BALLARD!!!!

I've coveted these fixtures for some time and jumped on the chance to buy two when a great sale came along. The products are gorgeous, as I knew they would be. The HUGE surprise came in the extraordinary care with which they were packed for shipping. A metal frame, the perimeters of which were custom fitted to the shipping carton, interlaced with twine holding the fixture in position within the box guaranteed delivery of a beautiful - INTACT - fixture. Huge, huge kudos to the S&H guru who came up with this process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MegF Exactly what I wanted
I have been waiting for almost a year to purchase this chandelier. I wasn't able to find anything else around that was nearly as beautiful for even close to the price.
I am very happy with my purchase...it was exactly what I wanted and looks fabulous in our home.
