We bought this pendant for our kitchen to go over a peninsula. The golds and the browns complement the countertop beautifully. We are very happy with how the pendant looks. The pendant with the incandescent 75W lamp does not light up the area under the pendant and is not a significant light source. In our setup we had a recessed halogen flood centered between the two pendants which can light up the area adequately when the kids are doing their homework at the peninsula. We didn't buy the pendant for the light but to add a touch of color and beauty. So it worked well for us.
One could replace the 75W incandescent lamp with a 75W flood and get better light below the pendant but you would give up some of the beauty of this pendant.
