I like this fixture but was surprised by a feature that wasn't shown in the sales photos. There is a glass disc above the bulbs, to slightly diffuse the up light that washes the ceiling and spreads the bulb heat over a larger area of ceiling, eliminating hot spots, directly above the bulbs. This works well, but traps heat if you use compact fluorescent bulbs, shortening their life. The rod that holds the bottom diffuser was also a little crooked and needed its mount bent a little, to make the diffuser hang straight. But took only a minute to correct. I just wish that every lighting fixture had a detail photo of the structure under the diffuser, (partial disassembly) so I could select based on my needs, instead of guesses about how the fixture is constructed.
Looks great in my new office. The materials are of good quality at a fraction of the price I could have paid elsewhere.
