This is a beautiful piece, especially once light is shining through it. It is traditional in its design but the mosaic alabaster makes it a little funky. It is a great size, perfect for our livingroom. However, it arrived with a chip and we put it up anyway since the electrician was there. And it was miserable to install, even for a professional electrician -- took him 90 minutes, he had to saw down the screws and do other make shift fixes. But now it is up and we love it! Can't beat the price, either.
