A bit disappointed in the fixture we purchased. First, the finish and shade are MUCH darker than pictured/described. While not overly expensive I would have expected better quality. The shade has to be jammed Into the fixture(don't even need the fennel) and standard bulbs will barely fit. After snapping the cover off of two LED ($12) bulbs while putting on the shade, I had to manipulate the three sockets to get any standard bulb to fit. Can't use smaller speciality bulbs because you need the full 300 combined watts to get any light through the dark shade. Will eventually replace the incandescent bulbs with LED to reduce the heat being generated by the 3 100W bulbs. May have just been a bad choice but for $200+ I expected higher quality than a Big Box store fixture.
