The Happy Nomad of Your Interiors

There are some among us who are so fickle that we tend to move around our furnishings once every couple of weeks just for the sake of change. Others might do it few times each year. But rearranging your furniture periodically to spice up the look of your home is an inescapable task. This is where the versatility of the willing floor lamp comes to the fore! While other lighting installations are hard to move around, the floor lamp can be shifted with ease.

Fabulous floor lamp ensures that the line of sight remains unobstructed thanks to its design

This is a trait that is particularly useful in places like the home library, the reading room, bedroom or home office where the floor lamp offers ample lighting exactly where it is required. Though pendant lights and track lighting can offer the same, they are far more difficult to move around along with your décor.

Balance and Brightness

As we have said earlier, any one type of lighting installation cannot perfectly light up your entire home. But adding several layers of lighting is not the easiest task in the world as these installations need to work in tandem to deliver the best possible result. The combination of table lamp on side of the bed or a couch and a matching floor lamp on the other side is a popular blend that seems to work beautifully. Similar blend of floor and desk lamps can be used in varying corners of the room to create a diverse and soothing atmosphere.

It is no exaggeration to say that some of the modern lamps such as the Arco are design icons that have stood the test of time. Not only are floor lamps available in an astounding array of styles, but they can be included in any room of your home. Designs that are space conscious and smart on energy consumption ensure that even the chic urban consumer living in the tiny studio apartment can also be a proud owner of one!
