I ordered this based on it being one of few flush-mount options I'd narrowed down for size that would work with a mid-century vibe and not reflect tons of light up on the ceiling. I have it in the main area of a casual room and the smaller three light version in an adjacent nook. They are interesting without being overpowering. I hung both of them myself and easily navigated the apparent issues other reviewers have had; they did require some gentle pushing and pulling to get the holes lined up for the ring but i had no problem working with it. Once I understood how this is assembled (differently than expected) it became clear how to proceed. Put the glass, shade and metal ring together first, this assembly just hangs from the ceiling mounted bracket via three hand tightened screws. Also, I was surprised that the glass is quite obviously a coffee stained color, quite contrasting with the shade when not lit. When lit it casts a warm glow without being yellow, harsh or murky. I used 3000K bulbs with a high CRI and put both on dimmers. Looks great any time.
I ordered this light fixture for the nursery. The shade gives off a nice glow and there's enough up-light on the ceiling to warm the room. However, the glass diffuser plate does not fit flush with the bottom of the shade and there is a 3/4" gap. It's like the circle of the shade and the circle of the diffuser are not the same shape. It was a hassle to install, so I'm not returning it.
