Floor lamps are mobile and give out light where they are positioned. Their advantage is that they can be used to provide light around armchairs and sofas or a bed. Compared to table lamps, floor lights are better for ambient lighting as they usually emit significantly more light. Due to their height, the light bulb often cannot be seen, reducing the danger of glare. Typical designs for floor lamps are uplights for ambient lighting or curved lights for illuminating dining tables. Single- and multi-bulb floor lamps that can be adjusted and floor lamps with separately controlled lighting components are perfect for reading.
For reading, classic lampshades or reading lights that can be adjusted are recommended. For ease of operation, choose a reading light with a dimmer or a switch on the head or body of the light. If the lamp is positioned behind or next to the sofa, the joint of an adjustable reading lamp should reach above the backrest. An adjustable, downward-pointing reading light should have at least 400 lumens.
Choose a room light with at least 2,000 lumens per 20m². If you do not have any ceiling lights, a second floor lamp is recommended for even and adequate brightness. With an integrated dimmer you can create cosy mood lighting. If the floor lamp will stand directly against the wall, use a lamp with a swivel-mounted light or asymmetrical light distribution.
Find the perfect light to complement your personal style of living. Whether you prefer a "retro" style with design objects from the 1940s to the 1970s, an "Industrial" look with its rustic workshop charm, or a natural "country house style". Alternatives include the glamorous and high-quality "Modern Glam" style and the "Modern Zen" look, featuring plenty of white and light wood.
Find the right design style for your lighting. The Classical Modern period (1920-1969) encompasses Bauhaus (1919-33), Mid-century (1930-69) and Scandinavian style (since 1950). In the 1970s, organic design experienced a renaissance, while the 1980s marked the arrival of minimalism.
