We are now partnering with where you can buy replacements for any of the bulbs that we use or a package of replacement bulbs tailored for the chandelier you purchased. Our fixtures are not UL listed.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: You will need an adapter for these bulbs to work with your electrical source if you're not located in North America. You will be responsible for import duties and taxes to your country. For an estimate of duties & taxes go to

We do not sell bulbs that are more than 40 watts so we are not affected by the new laws for 2014 that have to do with 40 watt and 60 watt incandescent bulbs. That said we also now carry and sell LED bulbs that very closely resemble the incandescents you see pictured on our shop in shape, lumens, color, and glow.
This is a great article explaining the new laws and how it will affect you:,2817,2428279,00.asp

1. Is this fixture UL approved/rated?
A. No, Urban Chandies are one-of-a-kind pieces so do not have a UL rating. However all UL-approved parts are used in the assembly of each fixture.

2. Do Chandies come with the bulbs in their listing?
A. Yes, all bulbs are included!

3. Where can I find replacement bulbs?
A. We recommend purchasing replacements at As an Urban Chandy customer we will give you a discount code to receive 10% off your purchases.

4. What is the total wattage of the fixture?
A. Fixture wattage ranges from 150-396, but we can tailor the wattage to be lower to meet your needs. We also now offer CFL and LED bulbs as an option!

5. Will my Chandy require special wiring?
A. No special wiring is needed, but please note that if you are not in North America you will need an adapter for the bulbs to work with your electrical supply.

6. Can it be plugged in to an outlet?
A. Yes, we are happy to attach a cord with a plug for you. Please let us know when you place your order if you prefer a WHITE or BLACK cord and HOW LONG you need it to be.

7. How long does the lowest bulb hang?
A. It differs for each design, but we can adjust the lengths to accommodate your space and make them as short as or up to 12 inches (1 foot) longer than specified on the listing free of charge.

8. What type of connection does it have on the top of the fixture?
A. There is only one connection on top to connect to the power source.

9. How is the fixture mounted to the ceiling?
A. The fixture requires at least 2 inches of space between the top of the base and the ceiling.

10. What is the total weight of the fixture?
A. The weight of the fixtures range between 10-30 pounds including the bulbs.

11. Is the mounting hardware included?
A. Only the hardware to mount the fixture flush to the ceiling is included. We will pre-drill holes through the base for you and provide 4 toggle bolts to secure it to your ceiling (these bolts work with most ceiling types).

If you plan to suspend the fixture from the ceiling you will need to purchase eye bolts, chain or wire (or another appropriate suspension medium), and the hooks from which to hang the fixture with anchors appropriate for your ceiling type. Your purchase does not include hooks to go into the ceiling or the plate to cover the hole in the ceiling. These are inexpensive and easy to find most hardware stores. We don't include these items because there are many different styles of hooks and the anchor type you will need completely depends on what type of ceiling that you have. The same issues apply to the plate that covers the electrical box in the ceiling. But you can find these easily at most hardware stores or at Amazon:

*Please ask at the hardware store which anchor you'll need for your ceiling type, the heaviest of our fixtures weighs no more than 40 lbs with bulbs.
