Floor and table lamps - uses and functions
Floor and tables lamps are often overlooked, and yet provide a fantastic opportunity to add personality and quickly refresh the aesthetic of a room. They can be used for different lighting purposes such as ambient lighting and task lighting. And, by utilising floor and table lamps you can redirect focus to areas of the room for added interest and to create atmospheric zones around your home throughout the changing light of the day. One of the key ways to add interest to a room is to create multi-level lighting to draw the eye upwards and add interest, creating a lived-in aesthetic that's also wholly practical.
Whatever your style, whether it be industrial, minimalist, maximalist, or classic, our hand-picked selection of floor and table lamps will be sure to please. Read on for some classic, and rather more modern ways to feature multi-level lighting in your space.
Placing table lamps on either side of the bed is a classic for reason, creating ambient soft light perfect for reading late into the evening, and the relationship-saving ease of being able to turn off the lights from the comfort of the duvet. But a pair of bedside lamps also helps to direct your attention to the focal point of every bedroom, the bed. Not only this, but they also provide a fantastic opportunity to make a statement. Whether your aesthetic is scandi, minimalist, industrial, uber-modern, or timeless classic, we’ve got something for you.
Living and Reception Rooms
Using table lamps of end tables to bookend your sofa is a style classic creating a satisfying feeling of order in your room. Equally, it’s important to think about the way you use your room when considering lighting. Perhaps you have a favourite armchair that’s just perfect for curling up in to read the paper? Floor lamps can complete a space visually by adding height and interest, while also providing the perfect level of atmospheric light for the task in hand. However, these are far from the only ways to utilise multi-level lighting in your reception rooms.
Equally, individual or a pair of oversized lamps can create a fantastic focal point on sideboards and hall tables. Balance an individual lamp with a mirror or vase on the other end of your console for a less formal, understated look.
Looking for a statement piece? Challenge the status quo and demonstrate your style credentials by opting for a long reach floor lamp as an alternative to ceiling lighting. This is an off-beat way to create individual living zones while incorporating a modern statement piece.
Workstations and Home Offices
The humble desk lamp. As the world has moved from pen and paper to screens and tablets, and many are moving to spending more time working in home offices, one thing has become abundantly clear: lighting is key. When considering lighting for a workstation however, the need for style is no longer compromisable to function. And with the broad range of table and desk lamp styles available, even the most curated of workspaces will find a lamp to suit its aesthetic.
