I bought this light fixture for my Mother, who lives in a small one bedroom senior living apt. The standard lighting that was installed was so bland, and this light really dresses up the place and makes it more like home. It is a beautiful piece, and with the two light bulbs, give off enough light for dining or reading the morning paper. She really like it. It comes with 40 inches of chain and cord - so you have plenty to work with. The packaging was great, very secure - nothing broken upon arrival.
lamp was smaller than anticipated and the color is a "white background" this appears to be an off white to beige. lamp is nice just did not meet my expectations. I needed a larger diameter. as always Overstock provides good customer service.
