Love It or Hate It? An Upside-Down Lampshade

I spotted this room on Swedish real estate site Alvhem and was swept away by the table lamp flipped on its head. Here, I love it — granted, in part because the shade and base are gorgeous. I think it could definitely be executed effectively in another instance, but I can also see it failing miserably. Do you like this trick?

I did this once with a lamp that was on a high shelf, and it was shining in my eyes when I was next to it.

I really works with this room and this style lamp. Might be hard to pull off otherwise.

This looks good, but it has the potential to look like a super 80s torchiere lamp
