I was hesitant in ordering this light fixture as there were no reviews on it. However, I thought the design was a nice mix of cotemporary and traditional so gave it a chance for the price. What you don't see in the picture is a white circular plastic piece that is under the light bulbs. This piece covers the bottom so you don't see the light bulbs but really makes it much more modern than I had envisioned. Having the glowing plastic with the traditional bronze and crystals in my opinion did not make for a good look. Too many different styles in one light. However, the quality was decent certainly for the price. The color is definitely bronze (it looks more black in the picture), so if you are hoping for almost black, don't get this fixture. I returned it and Overstock was fantastic and easy with the return. I hope this helps someone else!
