Looks nice. We use it in our cabin in the mountains. My wife was concerned that the dark shade might prevent it from throwing off enough light, but that is not the case. There is one slight drawback, and that's due to the design of the lamp shade - specifically light leaks through where the stiches bind the top part of the shade to the bottom part of the shade. It hasn't bugged me enough to do anything about it yet, but I will probably put some tape over the holes on the inside of the shade to fix it. Overall, looks nice and seems to be well made.
