In the glossy version the metal is painted in up to 10 layers - similar to a process used for high end pianos - which creates an extraordinarily deep, high gloss black finish. This also means you can polish off scratches with standard car polish unless they didn't break the primer. Emily is covered with frosted plexiglass for a beautiful, diffuse illumination of the light, no matter which bulb you use. The textile cable is available in many different colours.
