Industry giant HGTV maintains that each room needs a carefully crafted combination of lighting options to suit many purposes. Table and floor lamps are unique in that they offer both decorative and functional purposes.

This makes lighting another great way to add personality to your space, and a great piece of accent furniture to bring color (and light!) into the room.

A standard reading lamp can come to life by choosing an eye-catching option. Mercury glass is a popular trend, and for good reason. Lamps that bring some sparkle, along with light, add interest to the room and are a great place to insert some glam. This Brit II lamp, available at our store, is a gorgeous accent piece – even when it’s turned off!

A standing floor lamp is another popular choice for an accent furniture piece. They have the added benefit of fitting into corners and small spaces and can add to your existing design theme.
