Proper lighting is essential to creating the right ambience in a home, yet lighting is often overlooked. With today’s vast array of overhead fixtures as well as table and floor lamps, there’s no reason homeowners can’t find a good lighting solution that is both stylish and functional.
Style experts today suggest “layering” different types of lighting in a room to get the look you want. Putting light sources on a dimmer is one easy way to instantly change the mood of a room. It’s also recommended that you mix both floor and table lamps. When you choose a table lamp, it is said that you shouldn’t be able to see the neck or the light bulb, or even the bulb socket, whether you are standing or sitting. If you do, the lamp may be too tall, and you don’t want your guests—or yourself—to be faced with bare bulbs.
The pierced porcelain lamp shown here is from East Enterprises, and it would work well in a variety of rooms because of its classic shape, timeless porcelain white color, and elegant style. Its lighting feature is unique, too, in that the first click lights up the top, the second click lights up the base, and the third click lights up both. We have lots of great new lamps in our showrooms at Knox and Panoply, so if you’re interested in taking your lighting up a notch, please pay us a visit and we’ll be glad to help.
