click to read more...
When looking into floor lamp lighting and doing your research to buy a standard lamp there are a number of things to consider – for example when choosing an item for the living room what is the function of this standing floor lamp? Is it to be a tall reading lamp or an uplighter standing lamp? What is your price range? What mood are you wishing to create? What décor is currently in the room?
These perform very different functions the uplighter is generally a long floor lamp with a very bright LED lamp in the bowl at the top that will generally illuminate the room by light bouncing off the ceiling, bringing light to a dark corner and generally upping the light lumens in the room.
Conversely if you choose a tall reading light it will perform a different function it will probably be a floor spot lamp like our black metal twin floor lamp. This large floor standing lamp has two adjustable heads and will throw pools of light where you aim them and will not give as much light but create interesting areas of light.
If you like that look then a similar but smaller pedestal lamp to choose could be our free standing black and antique copper task floor lamp with its angled adjustable head to read by.
