We bought this pendant for our meals nook. It is a great light fixture and really transforms the room. It is fun to look at and when you turn it on it creates interesting shadows on the ceiling. Didn't think of that when we bought it but it is kinda fun. The issue that I have with it is where the ball fits onto the top section (that holds the globe) the pieces don't quite line up so only 2 of the 3 screws fit in. But it doesn't really effect the look of it and it still seems pretty solid. Love it and recommend this pendant to others.

Needs the right bulb
By Ted C. from Charlottesville, VA on Jul 30, 2009
This lamp is a wonder, but it absolutely requires a clear halogen bulb--I use the GE Reveal 57-watt lamp. The reason for this is that the shade casts gorgeous organic shadows on all the surrounding walls and ceilings.
DIY installation is pretty easy provided you have some basic electrical and tool skills. One thing, though--this light is meant to be mounted with at least 18-inches of pendant wire between the globe and the ceiling box; otherwise, changing the bulb is very troublesome.
On line, it looked like it was white with wire mesh engrained in it, but it looks like paperclips glued together and you can see the lightbulb inside. My husband loves it though, and it looks OK in the foyer.
