Is there a fixture material that is as at home in a traditional home as it is in a contemporary setting? If you are unsure, look no further than metal lamps. Available in arc, swing arm, gooseneck, and tripod styles, these light sources are as functional as they are beautiful. Most importantly, a typical metal table lamp does not have to be stark and utilitarian. Instead, it can become a vibrant aspect of your home’s décor.
How to Select Metal Lamps for Functionality and Looks
At an average height of about 18 to 20 inches, the metal desk lamp illuminates with LEDs and allows for dimming. An adjustable height arm lets you choose whether to focus the light or let it cover the entire desk. When choosing a stainless steel lamp for the floor, a round metal shade is an excellent choice. It perfectly displays the beauty of the material. In contrast, a metal shade lamp might impress through brass, bronze, or gold-tone colors.
Where could you place metal fixtures? As table lamps, they are ideally suited for end tables. A pair of identical fixtures is a good way to frame your furnishings. Add floor lamps to the mix either as contrasting pieces or to carry on with the interior décor choice.
