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" / 50cm including the lamp shade. Accent lamps also serve as decorative accents within a room.
