Accent lamps are a quick and easy way to add personality to a room. The shape and shade options of accent table lamps are usually more varied and colorful than those offered by task lamps, and they really give you the opportunity to design with unique flavor. Designer accent lamps are specifically designed to be decorative pieces of art that also happen to add illumination. Materials range from crystal to cotton and styles from contemporary to classic. And their portable design makes it easy to change up the look when desired.
Where Modern Accent Lamps Work Best
Decorative table lamps work best for living room lighting, either in pairs on both sides of the couch or as single pieces on sideboards. You can make your entryway lighting more cozy by using an small accent lamp on a side table. Mini accent lamps like the FLOS Glo-Ball Mini or the Dioscuri Table Lamp are the perfect options to show off your style as soon as guests walk in the front door. Use table accent lamps in the bedroom on both sides of the bed for individually controlled lighting when doing some late-night reading. Accent lamps are ideal for adding a punch of color and for establishing your own personality in the home, so use them wherever a splash of style is desired.
