I love this light! I had been searching far and wide for the perfect ceiling mounted light fixture for my kitchen. We don't have recessed lighting and my old light was a fan with five bulbs. It was outdated and gross. So I switched it out for this light fixture and I love it! It is a very transitional style, which means it could go with pretty much any decor. (I plan on taking this light with me when I next move!). My husband installed it in about 45 minutes, and it looked fairly simple while I watched him. He is handy, though, so someone who doesn't have handyman experience may take longer. Since we mounted it in our kitchen, we used the shortest rod measuring 6", but it hangs sort of low regardless, so we may remove the rod altogether and have it that much closer to the ceiling. It puts out great light, too. In fact, we currently just have two light bulbs in it because we didn't have anymore on hand, and it lights up the whole kitchen beautifully! The shade has a slight woven texture and it is not pure white, but is just slightly off-white. I have white cabinets and it goes nicely with them. The black hardware of the light fixture is a matte finish and is not shiny, which I like. Overall I love this light and would definitely order it again!
