Floor Lamps

One of the great things about floor lamps is that there are so many styles available. From simplistic, modern lamps through to lamps inspired by traditional designs, there is a lamp to complement every room!

When it comes to choosing a lamp, one of the first things that you will need to think about is what direction you would like the light to shine. Torchiere style lamps will send the light upwards and shaded lamps will send the light down towards the ground. Adjustable lamps are perfect for those who want to be able to direct the light in different directions.

You should also think about how bright you would like the lamp to be. Lamps with dimmer switches or multiple settings are more flexible than those with simple ‘on/off’ switches. The shade and style of the lamp will also have an impact on how bright the lamp is. Therefore, If possible, visit a showroom as this will allow you to see the lamp in action so you can get a clearer idea how bright the lamp is.

You should also think about what kind of style you are after. Contemporary lamps work great in rooms with modern décor and come in a range of designs. Traditional lamps are great at adding character to a simple room or work well with rooms with traditional style furnishings. Tiffany lamps are another popular type of floor lamp. Either designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany or inspired by his iconic designs, Tiffany lamps feature ornate shades that are made from stained glass and lead.

If you are looking for a lamp for dual purposes, such as lighting the room and reading a book by, you should look for an adjustable lamp with multiple heads. Tree lamps are a great for versatility as these lamps have a number of heads than can be directed to different parts of the room. Mother and child lamps feature one torchiere style light to light up the room and an arch lamp perfect for reading!
