In terms of the frame and structure of the floor and desk lamps, the idea is that the square base holds the light in place and conceals the wiring for a refined and elegant finish.
The brassy gold frame which leads upwards to the shade and bulb is a glamorous addition, while the shade itself is available in the golden funnel shape or a more neutral white circular shade for a modern finish.
Light your space, your way.
