Designer Advice:

Dog lamps in neutral and monochrome colors have a more formal luxury to them. They can easily be paired with solid bright tones or meshed with white or black marble tables. If you have a big personality or you are into eclectic design, a more vibrant foo dog lamp may be a better option for you.
