This acrylic table lamp stands 19" high by 9" wide and comes with a pair of drum shades in both walnut veneer and white acrylic. I think I prefer the black body with the walnut veneer, though white on white certainly affects that cool, contempo vibe. It also comes with a 60 watt bulb, making it a fine accent to your current living room lighting scene.
Even a pair of Tucker Lamps on either nightstand, or a trio on top of a piano, as this yorkie seems to prefer, might make good sense. All told this is a fine bit of inexpensive design, and further proof that SCAD should stay on any design-seeker's radar.
