Wonderful lamp for kitchen. The lamp will take 2 bulbs up to 100 watts each. That's REALLY bright. I was so glad that we had a dimmer put on the wall switch. That dimmer is great for this lamp. I can use it for mood lighting or can turn it up all the way for bright light. If I didn't have the dimmer, the 2 bulbs at 100 watt each would have been way too bright for our preferences. I don't like harsh light and the glass diffuser is terrific. I really appreciate the 4 poles that allowed for customizing the length. Two suggestions I make: get a dimmer for the switch and be sure to thoroughly wipe out the inside of the shade AND the glass diffuser before installing. The tiny bits of styrofoam backing can stick to the inside and it will show through the diffuser when the light is on. (voice of experience here). It reminds me of seeing a dead bug in an overhead flourescent light!
