I too bought this light ( 2 of them) for my refurbished kitchen. One for over the eating island and one for the work zone. They are very pretty and I love the style, but they do not give off much light. I put 2 60 watt halogen bulbs in one and 2 60 watt reveal bulbs in the other and the light given off is very poor. Much more like mood lighting than task lighting. Also they hang down a full 15" rather than the 12" stated in the description. This could be critical for someone with low ceilings such as ours at 7.5feet. Fortunately my husband can just walk under without hitting his head. Still love them, but will have to add other lighting somewhere, somehow if I'm going to see what I'm doing. The poor light given off is the reason for my lower overall rating.
