I put this fixture in my bedroom with a dimmer switch. It's really lovely! This fixture, since the shade is a medium tone, puts more light down and up and less through the shade. The result is that the light is slightly directional. I wouldn't put it at the ceiling in a dining room for full room light, but would hang it over a dining table. It would give a great natural modern impact with two over a large dining table. That would be gorgeous! This fixtures intimate feel and semi-directional light is perfect in my bedroom! The shade's texture is really great. It almost looks like the distant trunks of a birch or aspen forest. **The color of the shade is more golden tan than the creamy color in the picture**. With reasonable prices found on O.co for really nice looking fixtures, it's a shame people still put ceiling lights in their homes that look like breasts. Am I the only one that finds these lights indecent! LOL.
