I love this fixture. It is simple yet still brings a bit of rustic, elegance to the dining table in my kitchen. The fixture gives off plenty of light, but I wanted the filament/Edison style bulbs (finally found them at Home Depot). The filament bulbs take this chandelier to the next level in my humble opinion. The light it creates is soft and inviting which works perfectly since I have so much light in my kitchen. I highly recommend this chandelier!
