I liked almost everything about these shades. The color, fabric, size. Nice quality. Because they are described as lined in white fabric, I mistakenly thought that these were soft-backed shades. In fact, the fabric lining is attached to a hard-back. This wasn't going to work for me because I wanted more light through than can be gotten with a hard-back shade. Unfortunately, I had to return the shades. I suggested that the manufacturer should clarify this point in the description because it could be misleading.
These shades were the right combination of simplicity and elegance for my traditional chandelier.
