I think that the first time I ever saw a swing arm lamp, it was in a movie. I’m not sure which movie, as my mom loved movies and it was a rare weekend that we didn’t go to the drive-in or the movie theater when we were younger. We saw A LOT of movies. I have drooled over swing arms lamps ever since.
When it came time to decide on the guest room design, a swing arm lamp never even crossed my mind.
