I love these lights. We are fixing up a funky 1950's home and these were perfect! It is great for an updated look for a modest price. Accepts standard bulbs. Some of my compact florescent bulbs were too long and stuck out from the bottom of the metal housing but others fit. In the 2 fixtures I purchased, the glass bubbles are completely different. One has few bubbles and they are more circular. The other has tons of bubbles but they are stretched and elongated. I still like them though.
