I have been working on my small home office/study recently and am currently researching lighting options. Although I sometimes do lean toward the traditional (a classic bouillotte lamp is one of my absolute faves), I can totally see the stylistic benefit of modern pieces.

Anthropologie is offering a similar look with their "Robson" sconce. I love its cool, streamlined, industrial look.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
