the product was designed beautifully, however it arrived with the top wooden piece broken at the two ends which connects the light bulb with the body of the lamp. my technician used a whole different way to make it work, but now it hangs tilted in a angle rather than straight down.
These lights have a supercool vintage look. They came properly packed with all the pieces, no damage. The lights truly look vintage. The only draw back is the install is tricky and the links are welded shut, so, professional install is required. Also the cord is braided (like how the old wires were) and if you can't get it done correctly you will fray the cord while turning the light to ensure it hangs right. The electrician we hired separated the cord from the links and then used the links to twist the light into position, after this, he wove the cord through the top. Other thing is the washer that fastens the top piece to the ceiling (to hide the wires) is a little weak. More reinforcement was really needed for the light. It hangs ok, there is a slight space though. Other than install, the lights are great. If you are looking for a cool vintage look, this is it.
