Just what I expected...mostly.
I've had one of these before so I knew what I was getting. I love them, they fit almost any decor and are great for lighting up big areas. My only complaint is on the wire expander. The ends the fit into the matching round pieces could be made a little narrower so they fit better. They want to pop out during assembly. And once assembled they seem to be just barely in their respective "holes". Also the small loop the the cord is supposed to thread through was not oriented properly for the lamp to hang straight once assembled with the lamp cord. I tried to bend/adjust it and it just broke off the wire it was soldered to. I improvised with a zip tie pulled tight. Bit I think the quality control should be looked at. Now that it's fixed, I'm happy with it and I would buy it again. I'm thinking of buying a smaller one for a different area of the living room.
ProsGreat even lighting for a large or small area. Classic design goes with most decor.
ConsPoor quality control on the wire parts.
