Since starting work here at Madison Lighting I’ve been astounded at how a single lamp can be an inexpensive and impactful object in a room that is also useful. A lamp that matches its space can disappear, but a lamp with contrasting color can complement your room’s vibe. And don’t forget that the use of shapes and styles can also create that contrast. The shape can contrast with your furnishings or coordinate with them. Placing a traditional fixture in a modern space can create the right amount of contrast while a sleek new lamp in a traditional setting infuses a vitality that can be really sophisticated. Scope out all the different materials that are used to create lamps from organic materials, to fabrics, to highly polished metals and crystal. I have decided that a new lamp makes a great gift for the house! Who’s with me?
