This chandelier is beautiful, very contemporary, and provides a ton of light (we put it on a dimmer so we could work at the table with bright light or entertain with dimmer light). It takes 56 100 watt bulbs. The black shades become translucent when you turn on the lights and look great. The only reason I did not give it five stars was because one of the L shaped arms that comes out from the center was very slightly crooked. But, it's not very noticeable. I could have returned it but by the time we noticed it the electrician had long since left and we didn't feel like scheduling and paying him to come back and remove it. We would also have had to repackage it and ship it back, order a new one, wait for delivery, reschedule and pay the electrician a second time, etc. But overall we are very satisfied with this chandelier and we bought matching pendant lights for it as well (see my review on Overstock).
