Easy to install. Casts wonderful circles on the ceiling. I made mine into an entry light. I was matching another larger one of this style that I have hanging in my dining room about 10 feet away. Had to fabricate a shorter threaded rod to make sure the door cleared...so, I only used about 3/4 of an inch of the threaded part of one of the 6" rods. I could not locate any parts at the local hardware store or the lamp store that would do the trick. My hacksaw made it happen. It would be nice if progress lighting would sell shorter accessory pieces.
This is a quaility fixture with modern good looks. I have three of these and they are a great addition to my decor. It would be nice if a replacement glass was offered. I had to purchase the whole fixture to replace a glass piece I broke.
