obviously at a very basic level, a lamp is meant to be used to provide light in a dark space. but would you call me crazy if sometimes i were to say to put a lamp somewhere that there isn't a plug? or maybe even a sconce on a wall where there isn't any electrical! lighting is functional but also such an amazing styling tool. i've thought about using this idea at our desk in our office. i also recently suggested adding a lamp to a console in a client's home and her home is an older one where outlets aren't necessarily placed where they would be in a newer home.
some examples... but let me preface them by saying i'm NOT implying that these are all examples of using a lamp only for styling purposes. they might be but i really don't know! what i AM saying is that they are is well-styled spaces and one of the reasons is the lighting!
