I was worried about the ordering this light as I hear horror stories about ordering lights from different companies and having the globes in pieces when they arrive. I ordered hoping for the best and my fan light arrived in a battered box. I opened it fearing the worse to find my light completely in tact in very good packing. Everything was wrapped in such a way it just couldn't be broken by tossing or dropping the box that it was in. I love the light, it was everything I had hoped for. It is bright and beautiful in my kitchen. The transaction was so easy and shipping was fast. I will be doing all my lighting business with ATG (Lighting Universe) from now on. They have my five star rating. By the way I ordered a fan to go with this light and it came packed just as nicely. I am happy with both orders and will be back again.
