We remember watching Apartment Therapy fave, Ron Marvin's, episode of Small Space, Big Style years ago and how he had a thing for lamps and lighting. In just 300 square feet he has over ten. We also have
a friend that loves chairs, often referring to some of them as "art" rather than a functional seat. This got us thinking about the emotional reason why people enjoy multiples of furniture or decor in their home. In Ron's case, he describes his lamp-love as "Lamps and mirrors are my number one way of making the space feel larger and a comfortable. Thanks to every lamp being on a dimmer and mirrors put in every room. There is even a mirror in my kitchen and on the ceiling in the entry, as well as a floor lamp in the bathroom!"
We wanted to ask you if you have multiples of decor or furniture in your home and how you feel about these accents? Share your story below. Click here to see more of Ron's lovely apartment and click here to upload photos of your own multiple decor to the Apartment Therapy Flickr page.
