Since my wife doesn't share the love of the lamp style, I have placed it in my workshop till we get my office built over the garage (some years from now I suppose). It really changes the warmth level and with three bulbs instead of the one that had been, it's more evenly lit and useful to me.

On that thought, I captured a few shots of my finished basement area to illustrate how a table lamp in the right place can create much nicer lighting and interest than plain overhead lighting. Below are two different views, the first with overhead lighting, the second with some old but nice table lamps.

|Overhead off, lamps on - warm and cozy corner|

Lamps and lighting do a lot to sculpt our living spaces and should be given ample consideration as an inexpensive and dramatic way to revive a living or work space.
