Floor lamps are very versatile in every room and many people prefer them to table lamps. One reason is because they can be placed pretty much anywhere, in any corner of any room while giving each room that soft, nice light that rests and relaxes the eyes.
Desk lamps have relatively few options in location, they are mostly placed on tables, desks and nightstands, and unless you have a support below them, they can’t be put just anywhere. The floor lamp, on the other hand, can be placed to stand alongside a table, a desk or in one corner of the room to provide soft and spot light. Some lamps, such as the arc floor type have these flexible necks and arches that give additional functionality. For example they can be adjusted to various positions for brightening different places or the entire room.
Furthermore they have additional functions compared to the traditional desk variety. Since they illuminate from above and from below, they are perfect for adding light to the room and the particular spot where people are gathered together for conversations. Also depending on the style, ranging from very sophisticated to totally minimalistic designs, the floor light can accentuate the decor of the room very nicely. And yes, I mention plural because it is not uncommon for people to buy more than one lamp for their rooms.
Unlike ceiling lights that provide lighting from above going from light to dark, these will illuminate a corner or a section of a room and can even highlight a particular object, such a piece of art that the host wants to display to the visitors. Of course, such a lamp is a beauty in itself so it can be displayed as an additional stylish piece of furniture in the room, whereby guests forget its utility aspect and focus on its modern design.
One of the more interesting types is the antique floor lamp. While used for its functional feature, it is really enhancing the room decor, adding that vintage look that is so ‘chic’ nowadays.. Vintage objects always captivated the eyes of people and having a brass antique style piece to enhance the living room is a choice many people make particularly if they have brass objects already in the room, such as brass door handles to their doors and cabinets.
When you buy your next light source, go for a floor lamp and you will not be disappointed.
