The crystal globes are beautiful and they make the light sparkle on the walls. Also they are heavy which indicates plenty of crystals not just plastic. If I hadn't gone through the trouble of putting it together I would've sent it back because: 1. It is bright - bathroom fixture like - chrome and it doesn't go in my bedroom. It would go very nicely in a bathroom. It is just like in the picture but I didn't realize just how polished and shiny the metal was. 2. The plate on mine is warped so it doesn't flush with the wall, which leaves gaps in between the light fixture and the ceiling, I'll have to use painter's caulk or something to fill those spaces. I feel most of my dissatisfaction is because I picked the wrong fixture for the space.
