Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This light appears to be well-made, but didn't even bother installing it. In fact, as soon as I pulled it out of the box, I kept it out only long enough to take a picture. The color is nowhere near the color it appears online. The online version is much richer and brighter, while the actual lamp is much duller ~ more tans and off-whites than anything else. This is what happens when you get an advertising department that sets their cameras to "Vivid" and then hopes no one notices when they get the actual item. Bummer.
