As the temperature begins to drop and the nights get darker earlier, we know you’ll be spending more time inside. Spending more time at home shouldn’t feel like hibernation, though. So we’ve selected five floor lamps to keep your home light while you batten down the hatches for winter. Lighting is an essential part of the ambience of a space, different rooms have different requirements, so we’re here to help you create the perfect winter home atmosphere.
For the bedroom we have two suggestions. Each focuses on warmth, both in the lighting and the base design. The bedroom is a place that calls for more relaxed tones of lighting, nobody wants to read a book by sterile white LED floodlights. Try the Muuto Pull Floor Lamp: at 1.5m it’s the perfect height for bedtime illumination. The natural oak wood stem will add a subtle natural Scandinavian edge to your room.
If you’re searching for a more modern feature, look no further than the FLOS Brass IC Floor Lamp. Designer Michael Anastassiades plays with the juxtaposing sharp angles of the stem and the smooth spherical light which balances on top. The brushed brass stand is in-keeping with perfect bedroom hues while the glass orb lamp puts out a warm yellow light. With the dimmer feature you can always get the perfect level of lighting.
We don’t all have space for a large light feature in our lives, we’re all trying to declutter. Lamps don’t come better designed for small spaces than Menu’s White Peek Floor Lamp. Let’s begin at the bottom: a heavy concave base doubles up as a bowl for all those wires and the jewellery that you don’t have a drawer for. The 1.35m stem is slender and white, ensuring that the lamp doesn’t visually crowd a room. At the top is a dimmable LED bulb, ideal for positioning over a chair in an office or a living room lacking in space.
Standing at 1.4m and boasting complete adjustable freedom, the MOEBE Black Stand Lamp Set is ideal for a working environment. MOEBE's minimalist offering tiptoes the line between style and substance and it's light enough to easily manoeuvre around the office where and whenever you need it.
FLOS redesigned their classic Arco lamp in 2012 to celebrate its conception 50 years before. The main change comes in the form of LED lighting, while the white marble base, telescopic arc and adjustable shade remain the same. This minimalist floor lamp looks as modern today as it did in 1962, the clean base provides the starting point for the striking movement and energy of the curved stem; simple shapes are manipulated to convert a classic design into a modernist must-have.
