I purchased this product for a guest bedroom in our new house, which is in the process of being built. Therefore I cannot give an opinion on the amount of light it puts out but I was so surprised when I took it out of the box! The picture does not do it justice! I am so excited to see it actually installed, I think it will look perfect in our contemporary guest bedroom! I also purchased the crystal chandelier with the black barrel shade after seeing it installed in the restroom of a local wine bar. The delivery was PROMPT with no hassles. Once it is installed I will add an update to my review.
