I adore this light. The cork shade is unique, yet matches anything, it puts out a great amount of light and at 22 inches, it fills the room much more fully than some smaller pendants. The diffuser glass on the bottom makes it look very polished. It wasn't too difficult to assemble and they included several chrome extenders for taller ceilings. The finished product looks amazing. It's only been up a few weeks but has gotten lots of compliments!
This pendant is a winner! It is somewhere between modern and contemporary and its neutral enough to blend with most decor. We have it hanging above our eat-in dining table and the light it gives off is warm and bright. The size is pretty substantial, so just be aware of that. Overall, couldn't be happier, met our function, aesthetic, and price needs.
We got this for our kitchen nook, and it's great. Everyone who sees it comments on how much they love it and ask how where we got it, and it puts out a good amount of light. The only thing I would say is that some of the cork peeled off in shipping, but it's hardly noticeable and I just put that side to the wall, so it doesn't bother me.
