I would of given it a 5 star but there are a few things that I didn't like. When they used ther term standard bulb I thought it meant the typical size bulbs you use around the house. I wanted a brighter chandelier and not fond of the candelabra bulbs. I use it for my bedroom which has standard ceiling height. It's hangs a bit low for my ceiling height but I knew that. There are a few minor scuffs here and there. The shapes on the shade look like black at night when the light is turned on which gives a nice contrast. During the day you can see the bronze color. I bought some halogena bulbs(energy efficeint halogen bulbs from a certain brand thaat name the bulbs halogena) which adds a "flower" shadow to the ceiling, the bulb has lines on it. Those bulbs work with a dimmer. So I was able to find bulbs that provided more light but not as much as I would like plus they cost a lot.
