I have gone through quite a few products trying to find the right fit for this space. The dining area is part of a greater space in this new contemporary home in the hills near Stanford University. Respecting the view of the surrounding hills was a priority. I needed a fixture that would flood the table and ceiling, without producing glare on the nearby floor to ceiling windows. This fixture also has a low profile and compliments, rather than competes, with the view. This light took months to get, but it's perfect for this application. The simple ribbons have character, and soften the overall look as well as the light emitted. See my review of the Silantra 04, as I purchased both.
