it looks like it has ventilation holes? on the side and is not meant to be flush to the ceiling...is there an alternate model in the same brand?...check with supplier and electrician
I was keen on that same light fitting. Was told that it cannot be flush to ceiling or it would be a fire hazard. It is beautiful - perhaps in a little while you won't even notice the bit attached to the ceiling? Otherwise, as Julie suggested, you may prefer to exchange for something else.
That's great news Lidija. I was letting you know what I was told at Beacon Lighting when I enquired about the same issue, but glad to hear your electrician thinks otherwise, and you will get the outcome you want :)
