The design is classic, and the construction is sturdy. The mathematical simplicity is truly a work of art. The packaging the light was shipped in protected the light, when a worker actually feel off a ladder and crushed the corner of the box. This extra effort is well appreciated.

My first impression was how well the shipping container was designed, and I was even more impressed by the design and
quality of the lamp itself. Hung in our dining area, and
utilizing a dimming switch, the lamp creates a delightful mood
that can be varied to suit any occasion. We are well pleased.

I purchased the small lamp for my new home foyer in 2010. I should have listened to reviewers - bigger is better. I purchased the extra large and it is fantastic.
I have visited client's homes where they have used the extra large in a small eating area. I don't think you can go too big. Anyone needing a small perfect condition small globe :)
My globe glows in my large contemporary foyer year round - at Christmas it glows with a green bulb.
I was so happy to find the extra large version of the saucer lamp. It's a gorgeous, classic piece and will be perfect for the 14' ceilings in our living. I was surprised at the lack of any padding in the shipping box, but the lamp seems to be no worse for wear.

While the lamp is very large, it is also very light weight and made of durable material. It casts a warm glow and due to its color and cloud like shape, it gives off a feeling of relaxation and serenity. At night, and with a dimmer switch, it almost is reminiscent of a lantern.
