Manufacturers error I'm sure, but that does not change the fact that I am completely disappointed with this purchase. The outer shade is not even (lopsided) to the inner shade. NO, this has nothing to do with hanging from the ceiling. The shades are uneven! When the point of this style of lamp is that you can see both shades when they don't line up properly it is a complete failure. DISSATISFIED. O BETTER PAY FOR THE RETURN SHIPPING ON THIS ONE!

Looks okay from a distance, but the overlap edges are not even. Obvious when lit. Hung the lamp and then took off the cellophane to find that some of the tiny pieces of styrofoam were stuck between the black fabric and its clear backing - they are there forever. Didn't want to remove the light it after installation, so we will try to ignore the issue. Disappointing, but like eveything else here, and everywhere, cheap Chinese goods.
lamp arrived quickly and in good condition only problem would be that glue used to tape the shade for protection is stuck on outer shade and visible when light is on. Shade difficult to get to because inner shade is close to it. Love the diffuser, light is not in your eyes even though it is 36" from table top black shade is not dark when on, in fact it is very sheer. Good price, quick delivery. Don't use UPS if the weather is bad in your area, they leave it on your porch!
I was really worried about these lights, because we are using them as lights hanging by a bed. They look absolutely perfect! The outer layer is a little shinier than I expected and have a little glare from other light sources in the room. They arrived a bit dented from the packing in the boxes, but I stuffed them with paper towels to push them out and it worked fine. It needed about two days of "stretching" but they look AMAZING. I couldn't be happier.
