The shade arrived quickly and the style and color (light brown) are just as shown. Material is a bit thin and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone trying to darken a room. However, for my needs, I consider it a great value for the money.

This a very typical bamboo shade. The quality is just OK, nothing special. I think the price is a little high in that it does not even have a valance, something that I did not note when ordering. So all the mecanisiam showes when hung, does not look finished. But my biggest complaitn is the color...way off. Mahogany, to my mind is a very deep redish brown...this shade is orange, the color of cinnamon. In fact it looks much like the blinds sold a couple of years ago in import stores, that were called "Cinnamon Blinds". To avoid the hassel of returning I have kept it and spray painted it brown..it workd out OK.
