This is hanging over my kitchen sink, I don't even have the brightest bulb it allows. My bulb is about 70 watts, and it's very nice and bright for working at the sink. I love that the underside is white, which I can see from the adjoining room when I'm seated, and actually I can see some of the white while standing, since I'm short!
This was a great find - the style I wanted at a fraction of the price I'd found similar lights for. I may need to spray paint it, though. The "bronze" color is so dark, it appears black and doesn't match the other bronze-colored fixtures in the room.
