I installed this over my desk area. The lamp is GORGEOUS, but it is definitely NOT suitable for reading or paperwork. It provides a beautiful amber glow to the room, so it is more appropriate for accent lighting such as a bedroom or dining room. It is a lovely mixture of contemporary and old world glass craftsmanship. I love this light and the amber glow and style, so I have decided to install it in my dining room. Be careful when lifting from packaging and hold only by the hooks. DO NOT let it lean on any of its edges. It is a very heavy lamp. I let it lean on the edge ever so slightly as I lifted it from the packaging and reached for the hooks. Then I discovered that the edge. It was so well packaged, I can only assume it was my fault. Fortunately, since it is an abstract of broken glass, I was able to glue the edge and conceal my mishap.
