Occasional lamps are great--there's no doubt about that--and there is not a room that will not benefit from them. But in smaller rooms, otherwise beautiful lamps can easily become too much of a focus and cause a room to seem cluttered and over designed. Because of this, lately I've been really obsessed with see-through lamps. There is something great about the lightness that it offers to a room. See-through lamps--especially the ones chosen here--can easily fit into industrial decors (because of the exposed wiring), traditional rooms (because of the lightness of the translucent glass) and minimalist rooms (because of their simple design). So regardless of your personal style, your likely to find one that will work in your home.
