This classic accent lamp can take it's place with sophisticated ease in a traditional or modern interior.
Accent lamps are designed to produce a mood, a look or feel in a room, rather than providing a major source of light in a space. In general, an accent lamp is a relatively small lamp, with usually no more than a maximum height of about 20"/51cm including the lamp shade. Accent lamps also serve as decorative accents within a room.
The name “accent lamp” is derived from the word “accentuate”, meaning to emphasize something or to make something more noticeable. Accent lamps, by example, can be used on a writing desk, a mantle piece or side table.
Overall height (including shade) 20"/51cm
