I have no idea what your furniture looks like, but definitely the taller one, unless you have a specific situation you have to accommodate e.g. a huge artowrk on a wall and you don't want the globe obscuring anything.
I am pretty sure the 45" tall one is meant to be placed next to a table, or a recliner, to be used as a reading light of sorts. The design is very visually "light", if that makes any sense.
Do note that the actual entry opening for the bulb into the glass globe is quite small, precluding the use of LED bulbs. You will be restricted to the (provided) superbright halogen.
Bare brick walls?
