I ordered this light for over my kitchen table. It came very quickly, and has little to put together. The "shades" are glass and heavy. I was a little worried that the "gold" would be over the top, even though I have some gold accents, I didn't want it to over power the black. The gold is very understated, so it was perfect. This light is much bigger than I thought, again perfect for the space. My husband hung it with no problem. I was a happy surprise and finished off my kitchen beautifully!!
