The emphasis in contemporary design is so heavily placed on neutral tones and muted shades that we often forget to look at the bold contrasts. For gorgeous modern interiors to appear as appealing as they do one needs a touch of color and a dash of ‘drama’ here and there. Black is a pretty good choice in this regard. With white and grey being popular backdrops in current homes black makes for a perfect accent color.
Our next featured floor lamp boasts a bit of 1940s style as well as a trio of spotlights. Crafted of steel with a hi-gloss carbon powder coat finish the lamp’s gleam will capture your attention if its striking lighting arrangement doesn’t catch your eye first! It’s the Signal Floor Lamp from CB2:
This is a trait that is particularly useful in places like the home library the reading room bedroom or home office where the floor lamp offers ample lighting exactly where it is required. Though pendant lights and track lighting can offer the same they are far more difficult to move around along with your décor.
They also seem to rid you of the hassle of finding lampshades that match the exact color and shade of your existing accent tone. A bedroom with white and yellow or a living room in grey and green no place is too alien for the black lampshade!
