Rated 5 out of 5 by Price Beautiful chandelier
This is a beautiful light fixture. I installed it myself and it could not have been simpler. It does NOT come with the bulbs so be prepared to buy those. I ordered the seagrass shades and agree with another reviewer in that they don't allow much light to shine through. Still, I was not disappointed.

Wow, what a beautiful chandelier! It arrived and was just as described by Ballard Designs. Very well boxed and fast shipping. Looks great in my dining room and was easy to install (or so my husband says:)

We recently installed this over our table in our kitchen/great room. It looks fantastic! Provides a lot of light which we needed for the big space. Electrician had no problems installing. We couldn't be happier with it!

Once we got the fixture balanced and the shades on right, it's a beauty! This chandelier is the perfect touch to our new kitchen and eating area. It gives the room a touch of casual elegance! I'm looking forward to changing the shades at Halloween!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeeVee Looks Great!
I've never ordered a light fixture from Ballard Designs before, and I've never swapped out a new light fixture for an old one by myself. I was pleased to find that not only was the chandelier the perfect size and look for my eat-in kitchen area, the instructions on how to install it were easy to follow and I installed it successfully even though I have no electrical background.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EZShopper A great buy.
I love the chandelier. It's simple lines appeal to me and it works well in my small-ish townhouse dining room. I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gafirefly They Changed Chandelier Manufacturers
I have been wanting this chandelier for about 6 months and finally purchased it. I was disappointed in the chandelier that arrived. Ballard recently changed manufacturers and the replacement chandelier is a slightly different design. Look at the 9 arm Talia picture containing the three different chandeliers and you will see the current design. The two circular pieces on the center shaft are gone and the new bronze color is lighter than the older design. Disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DDecorator Cute but poor quality for price
It looks cute in the area; however, the quality is not very good. My girlfriend was over and said it was cute but did not look like I paid very much for it. I thought the color was a little lighter than I expected as well. Overall, its cute and I would probably buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jewell Love the look
This is just what I wanted to put over my kitchen table. It may be a little large (probably could have gotten by with the 3 arm smaller one) but I think it looks nice. I plan to get shades for it soon. I think they would add some color to my room and make it feel a little more casual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GloriaP Loving it!
My husband and I were very pleased with this chandelier. We were looking for a dark metal to replace the shiny brass we have had for 25 years. This fit the bill perfectly. I have redone the room with brown and black accents. so this dark brown/black finish fit right in. The gold shades add a nice warmth to the light when lit and compliment my new window treatments. All in all a great price and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun2 I love the look of the chandelier.
I love the look of this chandelier. It had to be assembled. I needed a electrician to install it so he assembled it. There were many pieces!!!! which was a little daunting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1906House We are very pleased with our new chandelier
We moved into in a 1906 home and needed a chandelier in our dining room. This chandelier fits well, provides excellent light, is understated (we didn't need an attention-getting piece), and is quite nicely priced! The quality is very good for the price. We are pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by janthro graceful, versatile, fits beautifully with different decor
I have the 6-arm Talia and the 3-arm. The larger one is in a two-room studio in my backyard, where it's hanging below a beamed wood ceiling. It adds a graceful note to a somewhat rustic room. The smaller Talia adds charm to a more feminine bedroom. And I love the option of changing the lamp shades at some point to give it a different look.

I'm so happy with this chandelier! It looks amazing and has improved our dining room so much! It looks like it should have cost much more than I paid at Ballard. Thrilled!

Rated 3 out of 5 by sunsetmb The product is overpriced for the quality
The product is very light and the stems are crooked, difficult to bend to get straight. Also, it was difficult to get light bubls into the socket evenly. Pretty disappointed. Had I not already had the electrician here and the coordinating dining room chandilier already installed i would have returned both, but then it wouldl have cost more money to have the old fixtures re-hung...The design is pretty, but the quality poor

I ordered this on Tues night and had it on Thurs! I could not be happier! It is really worth every penny and looks great in my dining room. I ordered the copper silk shades..wanted gold but they were backordered til Jan. Copper looks better than I thought. Very pleased with this purchase.

The 6-arm Talia Chandelier is beautiful. It was easy to install, too. For the price, the look is amazing. We are going back and forth about purchasing shades. We love to see the bulbs when we set the dimmer to low.

This is the second Talia Chandelier I have ordered, we moved and of course could not take it with us, so just ordered another one! Love it, looks beautiful over our breakfast table and really looks pretty decorated for Christmas!

The chandelier is just lovely and looks exactly as it was depicted in the catalogue. I'm really glad that i decided to add the ribbon trimmed linen shades to it - they give it such a finishing touch.

Adds a bit of elegance to an otherwise "cottagey" room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tennis1313 Nice traditional chandelier
I purchased this for my dining room. I wanted a chandelier that was traditional but not too formal. The antique bronze fits my decor very well. Assembly was easy, but I did have an electrician install to be sure it was done correctly. My only comment is that the bronze finish is rather dull; I wiped it with a soft cloth dipped in mineral oil to give it a bit of a sheen.

We wanted a new light fixture over our kitchen table and this is absolutely perfect. I purchased the burlap shades and they complete the look. It's an exceptional value for the look, presence, and quality. I assembled the chandelier and my husband installed it, all without any difficulty. Very, very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rodgirl Lovely chandelier for a good price
Perfect chandelier for our 15' x 12' dining room. Although I feared it might be too large, I'm glad I chose the 9-arm Talia chandelier over the 6-arm. It provides a great focal point and better lighting. I highly recommend ordering shades with it. They soften the light and add to the beauty of this light fixture. I added the natural linen shades. I looked many places before ordering this chandelier. Thanks Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by salla Versitile
I love the chandelier, it is very versitile and would go with many different furniture types. I feel it goes well with my dining room furniture which is oak. I do have 90 watt bulbs in it now and without shades it may be too much glare. Always have to use the dimmer so I am thinking of downsizing to 60 watt bulbs. Have been looking for a new light and finally found just what I was looking for. I may be interested in trying the new crystal covers for the bulbs. It looks great and I love it!

I was very happy when I received my chandelier. The quality was excellent. I ordered the shades in red and they match my decor very nicely. I have purchased items before and always have been satisfied.
