It's more rustic than the picture, but I actually like that more. It is definitely *delicate*, but that just means it needs to live in a low traffic area. The paper is thick enough that it was a good light for a massage therapy room - which is an environment where light needs to be gentle and diffuse.
We have received lots of compliments on these. We put them on the night stands in the guest room, and they are the perfect compliment to the decor with the function of a light. The price is reasonable, and they arrived in about a week. Very happy with this purchase.
