FAQ

TYPES OF FLOOR LAMPS

 

There are several types of floor lamps available, each with their own unique features and benefits. Here are some of the most common types of floor lamps:-

 
Task Floor Lamps: These lamps are designed to provide task lighting for reading, studying, or other close-up activities. They often feature an adjustable arm or shade that can be directed towards the reading material.

 

Tripod Floor Lamps: These lamps have a three-legged base and are often used as accent lighting or to add a decorative touch to a room. They are available in a range of styles, from modern and minimalist to more ornate and traditional designs.

  

Shaded Floor Lamps: Shaded floor lamps are similar to table lamps, but with a tall stand to provide floor-level lighting. The light source is typically covered by a lampshade, which can be made of various materials such as fabric, glass, or metal. Shaded floor lamps are great for creating a cozy and intimate atmosphere in a room, and can be used as a decorative accent piece as well.

 

Two-Light Floor Lamps: A two-light floor lamp refers to a specific type of floor lamp equipped with two light fixtures. These lamps typically consist of a tall stand supported by a sturdy base to keep it upright. Each light fixture is positioned at different heights or angles on the stand, and some models allow flexibility to adjust the two light fixtures.

 

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A FLOOR LAMP?

 

When choosing a floor lamp, there are several factors to consider. Here are some of the most important things to think about.

 

Purpose: Think about the purpose of the floor lamp and what kind of lighting you need. Do you need it for task lighting, ambient lighting, or accent lighting?

 

Style: Consider the style of the floor lamp and how it will fit in with the decor of your room. Do you want a floor lamp that is modern and minimalist, or more traditional and ornate?

 

Size: Think about the size of the floor lamp and how it will fit in with the layout of your room. Do you want a floor lamp that is tall and slim, or short and squat?

 

Material: Consider the material of the floor lamp and how it will hold up over time. Do you want a floor lamp made of metal, wood, or another material?

 

Light Bulbs: Think about the type of light bulbs the floor lamp uses and whether they are easy to find and replace. Consider the colour temperature and wattage of the bulbs, as well as their energy efficiency.

 

WHAT WOULD BE THE IDEAL LOCATION FOR PLACING FLOOR LAMPS IN THE LIVING ROOM?

 

Floor lamps offer various placement options to enhance the lighting and ambiance of your living room. Here are some popular choices:

 

Behind the couch - Positioning a floor lamp behind the couch is a common and effective choice. It adds depth to the space and provides excellent reading light over your shoulder, especially if the couch is away from the wall.

 

In a corner - Brightening dark corners with a floor lamp not only adds illumination but also creates a beautiful effect by bouncing light off two walls simultaneously. The Philips Hue Signe floor lamp can even cast soft, colorful light into the corners, adding a unique wall-washing effect.

 

Next to a desk - For those with a desk in their living room for work or reading, placing a floor lamp directly next to the desk is essential to provide brighter task lighting. An adjustable floor lamp head enables you to direct the light downwards onto the surface, optimizing your workspace.

 

Behind or beside your TV - Though unconventional, placing a floor lamp next to or behind your TV can be beneficial. It reduces glare and eye strain, and casting a soft light in this area creates contrast, particularly in a dark room when other light sources are off.

 

In the middle of the room - Larger living rooms that allow furniture and accessories to be placed away from the walls present the opportunity to position a floor lamp beside or behind the couch in the middle of the room. Consider adding a floor power outlet to avoid tripping over extension cords. Alternatively, a cordless table lamp like the Hue Go can be an ideal solution.

 

By strategically placing floor lamps, you can optimize the lighting in your living room to suit your needs and create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

 

IS IT ACCEPTABLE TO HAVE TWO DIFFERENT FLOOR LAMPS IN THE SAME ROOM?

 

Introducing a single floor lamp to a room serves a dual purpose—it not only illuminates the space but also contributes to visual harmony by counteracting the perceived weight of objects on the opposite side. This creates a sense of equilibrium, preventing the room from feeling unbalanced or lopsided.

 

On the flip side, opting for a pair of floor lamps introduces a dynamic element to the room's design. This approach is particularly effective when you want to accentuate specific features, such as a beautiful window or an elegant mantle. The paired lamps work together to draw attention to these focal points, adding depth and interest to the overall aesthetic.

 

Now, when it comes to selecting two floor lamps that don't match, the key is to ensure a harmonious coexistence. Rather than competing for attention, the mismatched lamps should complement each other in style, color, or design. This intentional mismatch can actually enhance the room's character, fostering a sense of eclectic charm.

 

In essence, whether you opt for a single lamp for balance or a pair for emphasis, the ultimate goal is to craft a cohesive and visually pleasing atmosphere. Striking the right balance between illumination and aesthetics transforms the room into a well-designed, inviting space that captures the eye and promotes a comfortable living environment.

 

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT HEIGHT FOR A FLOOR LAMP IN MY LIVING ROOM?

 

When selecting the height for a floor lamp in your living room, it's essential to strike a balance that complements both the aesthetics and functionality of the space. A recommended overall height falls within the range of 145-165 cm, taking into account the common sitting height of individuals on a couch or chair. This ensures that the illumination provided by the floor lamp is not only visually appealing but also practical for various activities within the room.

 

To optimize the lighting experience, aim to position the bottom of the floor lamp shade at or slightly above eye level when seated. This placement not only prevents glare but also creates a comfortable atmosphere, whether you're reading, conversing, or simply relaxing. The right height contributes to an evenly distributed and well-lit environment, enhancing the overall ambiance of your living room.

 

CONSIDERING YOUR LIVING ROOM'S SCALE, HOW DOES THE FLOOR LAMP FIT INTO THE PICTURE?

 

When choosing a floor lamp, it's crucial to take into account the scale of your living room, particularly the height of the ceiling. The relationship between the lamp and the ceiling height is key for achieving a balanced and visually pleasing look. If your ceiling is low, opting for an overly tall floor lamp can create an imbalance in proportions. On the other hand, in rooms with ample overhead space, a floor lamp that's too short may not effectively illuminate the space and might draw attention for the wrong reasons.

 

To ensure the floor lamp complements your living room's scale, take a moment to measure the ideal height that would harmonize with the room's dimensions. By doing so, you can determine the appropriate height for the lamp's base, preventing it from overpowering the room or causing unnecessary glare, and instead, contributing to a well-lit and aesthetically pleasing environment.

 

HOW DOES THE FLOOR LAMP COMPLEMENT THE LIVING ROOM'S DECOR AND DESIGN?

 

Discover the versatility of floor lamps as they seamlessly blend with your living room's style. With bases in brass, wood, and marble, and shades ranging from understated linens to vibrant patterns, these lamps offer a wide scope for matching your decor. Beyond matching, they can transform empty spaces into design features, adding depth and character. Consider creating a cozy reading nook by pairing a standing lamp with a small armchair and side table. When placing the floor lamp, be mindful of not obstructing the line of sight between seats, ensuring a perfect balance of style and functionality.
