I agree about switching the lamp out for a more colorful one. I'd even suggest to add several bold light fixtures, because once you get the grey couch in there, it might look pretty gloomy if you don't have enough light in the place!

If you're not opposed to hard-wiring, installing a single recessed light in the ceiling above where you hang the sculpture would be a really subtle way to light it up. You could opt for an adjustable one so you can angle it right on the artwork. Another option would be to mount a very thin light bar behind the sculpture. Many come less than 1/3" high--VERY inconspicuous. Light strips might be worth investigating too, because many are flexible to give you more freedom in choosing where you want the light be concentrated on the sculpture. If I were you, I'd look to finding an LED or fluorescent light source, because they emit very little heat. A halogen would make that metal very hot to the touch. OUCH!

Investing in a few large, bright light fixtures could also help lighten up the space. Wall sconces would look really nice, but I assume you wouldn't be allowed to do any hard-wiring in the space either. I'd recommend some bright white floor lamps and/or lanterns. Good luck--the space looks beautiful!
