I just had these installed by electricians yesterday - 3 in my kitchen to replace a halogen track fixture where the bulbs were a pain to replace. These are lovely - definitely silvery, not brown at all, lightweight metal shades with the leaves perforated into the design and a clear-to-white (plastic?) lining inside the shade. There is sort of a seam side - but it really does not detract from the look. Only accepts 60 watts incandescant if I want to dim up and down - anyone found any good dimmable flourescents yet? A fair amount of light comes thru the perfs and also bounces off the ceiling. Much better suited to a modern yet appropriate look in my 60s ranch than the annoying halogen track lights. Changing the bulbs as needed will be easy. Now I just need to touch up the ceiling where the track had been. No regrets. Oh, my electricians were amused by the nice install kit - wire ties, cotton gloves, clips. Said it was good stuff.
