The lamp is atttractive but simply doesn't meet my needs. I had hoped it would suffuse more light more effectively, but I find it's very dull. It also doesn't suit the use I'd imagined for it. I will be taking it down and either selling it or taking it to my local Goodwill if I can't sell. Also, when the light in't on, it's simploy a dark blob of class hanging from the ceiling; it doesn't look interesting unless the light is on.
