I bought this for the sitting room that is attached to our master bedroom because it matches the ceiling fan, which I purchased for the MB. It is beautiful. I needed something that met the following requirements:
*a close-to-the-ceiling fixture
*matching, or similar ceiling fan for the MB
*oil-rubbed bronze or black finish
*goes with a semi-rustic look (our new house has baseboards, doors, window frames, cabinetry, etc that is knotty wood). But it is not a cabin or lodge.
It was difficult finding something that met those requirements and wasn't "country." I also don't like many of the shades a lot of ceiling fans with multiple down lights have. I wanted something bright, as well. On that count, this fixture falls short. The description says it takes 3, 60-watt bulbs. I thought 180 watts, total, would be great. But this uses little bulbs that don't give off as much light as a standard 60-watt bulbs.
Nevertheless, I would buy this again because it is beautiful, meets my requirements and is well made. It really is beautiful! Also, I think it would go with a variety of decorating styles from rustic to contemporary.
Well made. Quality. Easy to install.
