This chandelier had some assembly required. It was very simple and required NO TOOLS! The only negative comment I would have is that there was no mention on the description of this product on-line regarding pink flowers. There are amber and white flowers, which were mentioned. The pink is unexpected and doesn't quite work with the decor. However, it is so beautiful otherwise, I will probably hang on to it. I may contact simplychandelier and see if I could exchange the pink glass flowers for a more neutral color, or purchase additional.
