Glass shades usually allow light to shine in all directions, but I didn't realize when I purchased these online that 100% of the light is channeled down. I used three of these over a kitchen island, and while these make for fine task lighting, the ceiling above remains pretty dark. Still, they are beautiful fixtures, and no one notices the dark ceiling but me.

love the design. have 2 concerns. the bulb does let off a shadow effect on the ceiling but may go away w/different bulb. second, the whole unit that holds the bulb tend to get off center. needs some readjustment occasionally. not sure if it got bumped and thats why it moved. overall great design, clean, classic light.
