I love the look of soft lamplight, especially during the cooler months. A few years ago, I purchased lamps for our living room, but they were more for a decorative buffet. They didn't give off any useful light for reading. One of them broke awhile back, so this afternoon I replaced them with traditional living room lamps.
There is also a small lamp on the kitchen counter. It's nice to turn on in the evening and the early morning.
And finally, an even smaller lamp in the bathroom. It's the perfect nightlight.
