I am happy with this lampshade. It was exactly as described, both good and bad. It took a full month to arrive which felt like an eternity, but the listing and the other reviews had said that would happen. It casts a very pretty light and the look of it is very cool. You can see the lightbulb pretty clearly through the wood lattice, which is not so great but again, was expected. I also had a really hard time getting it to hang straight, since it's held on to the pendant cord with a wooden tongue of wood. All in all, I'm happy with it based on the cost and the options that I found and I would recommend it if this is the type of lampshade you're looking for.
