I loved the look of this light and was hoping that it would be bright enough to light an average sized bedroom. I was told by customer service that 55 watts fluorescent was equivalent to approx. 240 watts incandescent.
Maybe, but once you put the milky glass piece on the fixture, the brightness was cut in half. For a fixture with a 21" diameter, the light is VERY VERY dim.
Installation was difficult even for the professional electrician who helped me. The crossbar supplied was too narrow to fit a standard ceiling bracket. Then I had to run all over town trying to find the correct bulb, which neither my local hardware store nor Home Depot carried.
I wish I had never ordered this fixture.
