The shelve itself can be the ones that functions as shelve but most of them only function as the decorative shape of the lamp. This kind of lamp is considered a lot cheaper than the other standing lamps that are made of woods. This lamp is good to be placed in your bedroom or in the living room next to the jaket hanger near the door. The shape of the lamp that looks like shelve is also unique. Usually it will be tall with tube or rectangular shape shelve where the lamp is on top of the shelve. The body of the lamp can be wood or stainless while the lamp on top is covered by papers.
