We are a design firm remodeling a high end home and needed a modern fixture that would fit in a small vestibule. Since the project was running so high over the customers budget, we decided to look at Overstock instead of our usual high end lighting suppliers. The client thought is was fantastic. He was thrilled when we took it out of the box... and quite frankly, so were we. For others ordering this product, the shade is a bit darker than it appears in the photo.
