This is where the sconces and pendant lights swing in as a glittering hope to those looking for equally stylish alternatives.
This John Peacock Floor Lamp from CB2 is subtle… Except that it has a rectangular steel base coated in a hi-gloss peacock finish! And let’s not forget that white cotton box shade.
