An ambient floor lamp can completely transform your space. There are many gorgeous styles of lamps and it can be hard to choose between the right tall lamp, standing lamp or touch lamp. When you plan your lighting well the end result will be a lamp that you love and will use for many years. Read on to discover the tall and short of statement lamps.
Choosing the right lamp for your room
When selecting your lamp, it helps to consider the whole room’s design. The right lighting can affect mood, draw people together and boost productivity. Think about you and your family’s regular activities—if you often read on the sofa or play games as a family in the lounge room, then a tall floor lamp may best suit your needs. Floor lamps are also structured to be practical and are built to last.
Your lamp can be neutrally toned to match any decor, or striking in black or silver shades. On the other hand, a brightly coloured lamp will add contrast and interest. Find a lamp that is uniquely you to add a stylish touch to your home.
Light up your living area with gorgeous standing lamps or tall lamps.
- Black floor lamps can add a dramatic effect whatever the decor, and are striking in modern, traditional and neutrally styled rooms.
