Once I got this light up, it looks great. Could easily match one costing $500-$1000. Workmanship and quality control were minor issues: Threads were stripped on one part, screws holding the lamp to the ceiling need washers to assure it won't come crashing down and one of the 3 support rods for the shade was an inch too long. On the positive side: I emailed the vendor about the odd length rod and they immediately mailed me a new one from Hong Kong. Despite these minor issues, we could not be happier with the choice.
