Had these shipped to Hawaii, and still they beat what was available on island for any price! They are in a covered lanai close to the ocean and all the salt in the sea. So far so good, but one glass shade broke, so we replaced all of them on 2 fans, since the glass shades aren't available as a single shade.
The lamp base itself is nice, but the shade is NOT white, it's a flaxy linen color. When lit, the light glows super yellow. I'm keeping the lamp but sending the shade to Good Will and ordering a white drum shade.
This light is more than worth the trouble it takes to hang as it is stunning. Luckily, my husband and I had a patient electrician to help with hanging the light. He did have to trim the screws in order for the light to sit flush with the ceiling and the most difficult part was making the decision about what length to hang all eight lights. As others reviews recommended, keep the plastic on while you are hanging the light so the shades do not get broken. It took about two hours to hang this light but it was so worth it! This fixture provides a lot of light. It calls for eight 100 watt bulbs but we went with 60 watt bulbs and also added a dimmer. The 60 watt bulbs provide more than enough light. The amber tinted shades create a beautiful effect, but the lighting is not yellow or too warm. You will not regret purchasing this gorgeous light!!
