I absolutely love my new lamp! It looks great, arrived on time, and makes me feel good that my purchase is helping someone.
I like this shade, but i had to cut the zip ties that attach the bulb cage to the basket,and invert the cage to accommodate the very short distance between the bulb screw and the light socket, which was not a hanging cord, but rather a socket which projected a few inches from the ceiling, with a outer rim too large for the aperture of the basket to breach. This was a real PITA, as i have very large hands which are difficult to pass through the larger opening which emits light. It will work now for my purposes, but the manufacture should devise a different mounting system
