I 'd been looking for a light similar to Louis Poulsen's iconic Artichoke Lamp for a few months but couldn't find one in my price range. When I stumbled across this one I grew excited. The only drawback was that the product details stated that it only took one 60 watt light. Disappointed because I needed the option for more light, I kept looking. I came back to this fixture and re-read the reviews carefully: some said that it had three lights. I purchased it and- sure enough- 3 lights. It is a fantastic purchase for a contemporary or eclectic space!
First, this lamp was delivered in a bubble wrapped wood crate. When I removed the lamp from the crate, there were no damaged or bent leaves which I have heard other companies have issues with. The lamps is exactly the same as the picture. I was torn between ordering this one and the smaller one, but I'm glad that I spent the extra money to have the 28" model. It fits perfectly over out dining room table, and the three light bulbs give off plenty of light. We hooked it up to a dimmer for adjustable brightness. The instructions that came with the lamp are useless but installation is pretty basic for any one with light fixture experience. After searching for this lamp for months, I am very satisfied with this one, and overall the lamp is better than expected!
This product was packed so well it took quite a while to unpack. It a very contemporary statement. There is no reason to spend $5800. on the original unless you want to.

This fixture arrived fully assembled and packed extremely well in a crated box. I was impressed! It's feels even larger than 28", it's very grand. You can't see the dome in the photo so I was worried about what it would look like, but it is an attractive cone shape in chrome. It takes three bulbs up to 100 watts each, so it puts out great light and casts very cool shadows on the ceiling. Electricians felt it was a bit difficult to hang, so not sure about a do it yourself project. This is an iconic fixture that definitely makes a statement!
