Every January I find myself looking for a little something to perk up the dark corners and distract me from the sun going down at 4:30 p.m. (ridiculous). A new lamp, especially one that brings extra shine in an on-trend brass finish, might be just the solution for this year. Here are 12 great options. Now to narrow it down to just one…
