There’s no doubt that natural light can bring out the best in a home, but for those of us without great big windows and sweeping sky views, the right indoor lighting is all the more important. You don’t need to break the bank when buying table lamps, but rather opt for smart, timeless choices that will illuminate the right spaces and bring the right atmosphere to your room.
One of the most important areas of the home is the living room. A room you spend the most time in; reading, watching tv, and generally socialising, the living room is a space to be creative and reflect your style. By forgoing overhead lighting in favour of side illumination, you can achieve a textured effect that imbues the area with enough light to peruse your bookshelves, but not so much that it overpowers. To get the most out of a living area, buy floor standing lamps. These mobile pieces of craftsmanship can be moved around the space for those moments you want to ‘mix it up’, whilst also leading the eye upwards to achieve a sense of height to a room. Furthermore, if you buy floor standing lamps you are investing in a piece of sculptural elegance as well as a practical source of light.
