I ordered this for my son's nursery which we did in a rustic/modern theme. It looks really great and we mounted it flush to the base rather than using the extension poles since it is in the center of a room for an overhead light. The shade was more of a cream color than white, which I was thrilled with, but don't order this if you need a bright white shade. I don't use overhead lighting very often, but this really brings the room together. The lighting is a bit dim though. We used three bulbs with the recommended wattage and I wish it were a little brighter. It was pretty simple to install, though I would caution you to pay attention to where you want the seam of the shade because once you drill in the base and start attaching the parts, the shade fits on a certain way, and there is no way to spin it around so make sure before you install that you have the seam where you want it and not right in the front for example. The diffuser on the bottom is real glass and obscures the light bulbs very well, though it will probably be slightly annoying when you have to change the bulbs. We had to sort of force the glass piece into the drum of the shade but it was fine when we got it in. Overall, I am thrilled with the light. I would recommend it to others, and the price was great too!
