Placed around the home, Sun lamps offer warm atmosphere lighting.
The cylindrical lampshade is covered in an elegant cream-white color fabric, while the inside of the lampshade is an opaline polycarbonate material that diffuses the light. The light source and lamp shade rest on slender metal bases with black chrome finish. The bright red electrical cord lends an air of lighthearted gaiety to a sophisticatedly sleek design. Available in two heights, the Sun lamps are also lovely in pairs and work their magic in settings where there is a preference for multiple light sources.
