Floor Lamps, Table Lamps, Uplights & Reading Lights
Do you have a dark corner which is in need of being brighter? Consider placing a lamp on a table or using a floor lamp to rejuvenate the space. Luckily many manufacturers offer matching table and floor lamps to help you link furnishings together. Floor lamps are a great alternative to using a ceiling light, adding height to a space and providing task or ambient lighting for the home and office. In general, table lamps are smaller, more versatile, and give a more localised light than floor lamps. Whereas desk lamps can be used to provide task lighting in a study or just because they look great! Scroll to the bottom of the page for more information and advice.
How To Fix A Flos Miss K Table Lamp
Kristin Scott Thomas was going to throw out a Flos Miss K Soft table lamp in the film Partir. If you have a Miss K lamp that is not working be sure to check the SECOND fuse. In the UK we are used to replacing the fuse in the plug but many European table and floor lamps have a fuse inside the inline dimmer. Take a look inside and replace the fuse if your lamp is not working - it may be a quick fix.
Unfotunately the fuse used is not the same length or wattage as those in English 3-pin plugs. If you cannot get hold of a replacement give Lighting Styles a call and we can pop one in the post.
As for the movie, Kristin plays Suzanne and the movie was released under the English title Leaving. It is a good film, although it may make you think twice about getting the builders in.

Floor and table lamps - uses and functions
Floor and tables lamps are often overlooked yet they are portable allowing them to be moved from one area to another especially useful if you like to rearrange your room every week! Floor lamps can be used for different lighting purposes such as ambient lighting, up lighting, spot lighting artwork, and task lighting. Whilst table lamps are practical for reading and stop the need for a ceiling light to be on creating a cozy warm environment. Both floor and table lamps are offered in a variety of lighting elements, including halogen and incandescent. In addition to their practicality these floor and table lamps are available in many different styles Art Deco, contemporary, modern, traditional, retro, rustic and even the whacky and unusual yet still retaining practicality. You can also find very versatile floor and table lamps such as the counter balance or long reach designs that make a statement in a room and create ambiance over a dining table for example. Some floor lamps also incorporate tables for you to place say a book or drink and table lamps have USB points.
Desk lights and table lamps
Often table lamps are regarded as outdated and consequently can be overlooked in more modern environments. After all not many would consider a cloth shade on a turned pine stand as being leading edge interior design, but is this a little short-sighted? Pay more than £10 for a table lamp and you get much more than a coolie shade and a base! Table lamps can be used in differing and functional ways to enhance a space or to provide necessary task lighting.
Bedrooms Popping a table lamp on a bedside table provides a low glare light when reading at night and eases you into the morning without switching on a bright overhead light. Thousands of designs are available to suit your style and decor but most important of bedside table lights means you can switch the light without getting out of a warm bed.
Living rooms Many users place matching table lamps on sofa table to keep the symmetrical look of a room however the use of single lamps in living spaces means low light levels that can be altered to suit the mood and other artificial or natural light in a space. Using table or floor lamps at night will produce a soft warm glow that is pleasing to the eye.
Study or home office If you work regularly from a home office or simply use a study for more than storing ironing you will appreciate overhead lights provide more problems than they solve due to poor lighting levels and shadows on the working desk. There are many great desk lamps to choose from whether your taste is contemporary or traditional you will find a light that will suit your needs and budget.
