A duo of diminutive lamps works well on a mantle or bookcase where their small scale doesn’t feel overpowered.
A Clear Picture
Opt for a tall lamp on a desk to draw the eye up. The see-through base helps diffuse the light and also makes for an elegant alternative to a hinged-arm desk lamp.
Use a pair of slender lamps to flank dramatic vases and art on a console. The slim bases keep the surface from looking overcrowded and lend a polished, symmetrical look.
