This chandelier was a great size and easy to install. The only thing I was disappointed about was that lightbulbs weren't included

I had ordered this in cream for my home in California for my French style sitting room, and absolutley love the simple elegant style. My Mother in Ohio needed an update in her entry way and I suggested this in the bronze. My Father and she loved it and installed it right away! They sent me photos and I agree it looks great there as well! Ballard never disappoints!

Easy assembly. Attractive piece. I have received many compliments on this chandelier. It looks great in my dining room and manages to blend in with the decor. I hope to order other items from Ballard Designs. Thank you for being so helpful.

Have loved all my purchases form Ballard. Wish my next 15% off didn't have to be on such a large amount ( 200.00) I'd probably spend it but not sure I need a 200.00 item right now.

The talia chandelier is very good quality and provides soft lighting over a dining table. The cream color iron paired with sea grass shades was the perfect choice for a beach house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nonnie973 The perfect fixture
I searched for months and found this chandelier to be the best looking, best priced fixture. With the shades I purchased from Ballard as well, it is a very attractive focal point when you enter my home. Thank you Ballard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gogo Good for the discounted price
I got this when Ballard was having a lighting sale so it was 100$. So great for the price. Up close the finish is cheap, sponge painted look and its a very light weight fixture. Its good, usually light fixtures aren't set close to the eye so u don't even notice its finish. It works and its charming with mini shades on it. I'd get it again.

This is my second Talia Chandelier. They are constructed of a metal that is just the right weight that makes them easy to hang with plenty of chain and wire, easy to install. Love both of them!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Osborne Although attractive...do not recommend.
The Talia Chandelier looks pretty in the picture, but when my electrician hung the chandelier, some of the candle arms were not constructed straight up and down so some shades hang crooked.

Love this chandelier. Looks great in entryway. Just the right size. Looks nice without shades or with shades, your choice! The color is a nice quiet ivory. Have the larger Talia chandelier in my nook and it is perfect for that area too.

I have a small dining room open to the living area and this size works perfectly and adds light to both areas. I purchased the cream chandelier and seagrass shades for a casual look to go with my country french furniture. Perfect. I'm looking forward to getting red shades for the Christmas season, and it's also beautiful with no shades. I also got the 3-arm Talia for an adjacent entry way and it is also lovely. Very well-packed, so don't worry about it arriving without damage.

I agree with the description of "not too big, not too small", I have a small dining room and was debating getting the smaller 6 arm version of this chandelier. SO glad I went with the 9 arm, gives the room an extra little 'oomph'. My husband says the installation was not fun, but he's not a handy guy, took about an hour to install. The color is a mottled brown/black which is nice & soft, not as harsh as straight black.

I love this chandelier! I am moving from my current home and the chandelier is conveying and I may just buy it again for somewhere in my new home. It's classic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jlgiulia Beautiful style
I love the style of this chandelier; however, the color was not as dark as I expected it to be. The finish on the chandelier almost has a "pinkness" about it that gives it an antique look, but not an oil-rubbed bronze appearance as advertised. It was dark enough however that it still looked good in the dining room. I bought another chandelier from Ballard for the dinnette area in our home. It is actually black and I like it better. Overrall, great style, great price. It arrived shortly after I ordered it and it does look nice in our dining room.

I love it! We recently upgraded the kitchen and this chandelier is perfect. My kitchen now looks like a French Country Bistro which is exactly what I was looking for.

I love this chandelier over my kitchen table looking into my great room. Easy to put together and install. Made of sturdy material. I definately like the look better with the additional shades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hockeybarbie A Beautiful Country French Look
I chose the cream color because I am redecorating my living room in a Country French style. When I paired my chandelier with the Ballard sea grass shades, I got the exact look I was going for. Great quality and easy to install, I am very happy with this purchase.

I bought this chandelier for an effieicency guest apartment with dormers so I needed a small fixture that wouldn't hang too low. I bought gold silk shades to go with it. It is very pretty and fits the French county decor of the apartment. Lots of compliments. Also a great price.

I would highly recommend this item. Very nice and easy to hang. It's very lightweight and looks very expensive. I purchased the broze for my dining area in my kitchen and it looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KathyO Love this Chandelier!
I ordered the bronze and am very happy with my purchase. It's a classic look that fits in perfectly in a formal room and can also be used in more casual settings. It was very easy to assemble and hang and I especially appreciate the ridges in the hanging ring that allowed me to adjust how it hung so it would appear even. I also purchased the khaki silk mini-shades and they just added to the look. With six 60watt bulbs, it's very bright so you'll definitely need a dimmer switch for this. The bronze coating has a slightly 'mottled' look that you only notice when the chandelier is lit. Would have preferred it a flat dark bronze but that is minor. I've received many compliments and would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BallardFanVA Classy piece at a great price
This is by far the prettiest chandelier I have seen while looking at many chandeliers for our new dining room. It fits many different styles of decor and is sold at a great price. I suggest ordering it with the chandelier shades. They look pretty during the day and cast a warm, beautiful light when on at night.

My electrician has just installed this fabulous chandelier!! I am beyond excited, as it is just beautiful, it also replaced a ceiling fan. My breakfast room is now a joy to look at, and dine in, too! It has to be one of the best bargains I have ever come across. Thank you, Ballard Designs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ignoringthehousework Chain is longer than advertised, which is perfect!
I ordered the brown version of this back in December and assembled it right away, but didn't install it until yesterday. Why oh why did I wait so long? It looks fabulous! It cost $$ but looks $$$$.
This was my first experience with anything electrical, and my ceiling is 14 feet high. Even with the extra-tall ladder and the learning curve, I was able to do this with no problems. My biggest challenge was shortening the chain by a few links. I suppose there are tools for that but I just used pliers to open a link (and used an old washcloth to cover the metal and protect the finish).
My dining room looks like it's had a facelift. This chandelier is such an improvement over my old 1994 builder-grade brass and glass fixture.
The most pleasant surprise was discovering that the chain, which was advertised as 3 feet, was actually 6 feet. I had planned on buying additional chain at a local store but didn't need to.
