This is a beautiful hanging lamp and it looks stunning hanging over our dining table. The colors are rich and bright when lit and it gives a soft glow to the room. I first used two 60 watt bulbs, but I wanted it to be a little brighter, so I used two 75 watt bulbs and it brightened the room more to my liking. I had been wanting a Tiffany-style hanging lamp to replace the hanging fixture we had, but couldn't afford retail prices to get what I wanted. When I saw this one on Overstock.com. I knew it was the one I had been looking for and at a price I could actually afford. Hanging it was a little tricky and my husband is very knowlegable and handy at doing things like that. So, make sure you have someone who knows what they are doing to hang it. But I could not be more pleased with this beautiful lamp. It is so classy and looks like I paid much more than I did. This is why I keep coming back to Overstock when I have an important purchase to make.
