The only thing I was disappointed with was the fabric wasn't white. It is more of a tan linen color when the light is on. When the light is off it looks white. I purchased the flush mount to match in my foyer. Love the style and quality. I like the glass cover on the bottom of the light. I don't sitting under a light fixture and seeing light bulbs. It is in my dining room which is off the entry of my house in a room by itself with french doors. I use it as an office but wanted to make sure it looked like it matched the rest of the house. It is formal enough to use as a dining room light and yet contemporary enough to use in my office. I like that the light is softened by the glass shield on the bottom.
