I have the fairly contemporary-traditional decor and it took me almost a year to commit to the purchase of a new light fixture. The one that came with the house was so generic. Compared to other "sputnik" designs out there, I think this was is the most urban-industrial. It seriously stands out! I have it on a dimmer switch and it functions perfectly that way. The photo shown has in set on a low dim. Full power is really really bright. The bulbs are clear, I wasn't sure from the specs if they were amber or not. There are three wire cover poles, I only used one on my 45 degree vaulted ceiling . It was easy to install, I did it myself. This Warehouse Jackstone Chandelier looks like a knock off of the Restoration Hardware Sputnik design, but at a fraction of the cost. My living room feels so much more interesting now, and the light is ample. I didn't realize the benefit of having up and down lighting before. My husband is trying to get used to it, he is used to very simple aesthetics. He teased me that is looked like a satellite... yep! This is a classic nod to mid-century design influenced by last century's space race between the U.S. and Russia. I really hope my husband warms up to it. It is so cool! Buy this product if you can't stand all the generic lighting out there! Overstock's customer service and shipping was great too.
