Getting Your Way Around Modern Floor Lamps

So, you are in the middle of the redecoration process and unsure on the lighting situation. Or maybe you’re moving into a new place and need a new lighting set up.

Lighting can often make the most impact on the look and feel of any room. It sets the tone and brings out the colours and theme you are going for.

Floor lamps are functional but eye-catching, and a clear way to make a design statement in your space. Floor lamps are on display year-round and last several years, so selecting the right modern floor lamp can be a tough decision to make but worth the consideration.

When deciding which floor lamp is the one for you, ask yourself what the purpose of that lamp is? Get in the mind of an interior designer and visualise what you want the floor lamp to achieve. Think about the 3 main types of lighting. In case you’re not too familiar or need a refresh, they are as follows:

 

1. Ambient or General Lighting

This is the most basic type of lighting. The intention is to create an evenly lit room for the general ambiance and safety. Ambient light should bounce off walls and ceilings to illuminate as much as possible. This type of lighting is widely created using ceiling lighting, which you also get from CIMC Home. However, this can also be created using standalone lighting such as floor lamps, which you can use to update your living room by moving them about from corner to corner. So why not change things up and use one of our stylish floor lamps as your ambient lighting option?

What floor lamps can I use for my Ambient Lighting?

For the perfect floor lamps for ambient lighting, our elegant range of tripod floor lamps are something you must look at.

These classy contemporary lamps, usually reserved for the photography studio, will make an exceptional choice for the living room. So, if you’re an interior designer looking to add that extra touch and impress your clients, our range is perfect for you.

Our chic collection features the gorgeous Wood Tripod Floor Lamp with Marine Green Shade and the stealthy Black Hollywood Floor Lamp with Charcoal Shade.

Tripod lamps have soared in popularity in recent years. These 3-legged floor lamps have an iconic style that grabs attention in any setting and makes an immediate statement. By using two of these tripod lamps in either corner of the living room, you are sure to create and spread ambient lighting in a sleek modern manner.

2. Accent Lighting

Accent lighting is predominantly used for creating a focal point in a room. This focal point could be a piece of artwork, a plant, a picture or anything else you want your lighting to focus on. Accent lighting is directional and not intended to light up the whole room. You may have sentimental ornaments or special photography at home you want to draw attention to, and accent lighting is a great way to achieve that and enhance these treasured items.

What floor lamps can I use for my Accent Lighting?

To achieve accent lighting in a fashionable style, our Nickel & Clear Orbit Floor Lamp is an ideal choice. Accent lighting can also be achieved with our unique set of Director style Tripod Floor Lamps. This includes the Photo Luminaire Directors Tripod floor lamp, and the Hollywood Directors floor lamp, available in Black or Grey wood.

These floor lamps are a modern take on the traditional tripod lamps and feature a trendy light shade inspired by the film industry. These beautiful floor lamps are bound to illuminate and draw attention to your chosen centrepiece of the room. The head on these floor lamps are adjustable, so you can take turns of what the focal point of the room is as many times as you like!

 

 

3. Task Lighting

Finally, the last type of lighting you need to know about is task lighting. As the name suggests, task lighting is used to help perform tasks such as desk work, reading, sewing and so on. Effective task lighting should reduce glare and brighten or darken the room to meet your needs.

What floor lamps can I use for my Task Lighting?

While task lighting is mostly achieved using table lamps, at CIMC Home we have a selection of fashionable floor lamps that are perfect for task lighting.

For a simple yet elegant solution, view our Telford Chrome and Glass floor lamp. Be sure to also have a look at our Chrome & Crystal Hollywood floor lamp. These floor lamps are perfect to have near the sofa in the living room, to use when working on the laptop, reading or for any other task you need to accomplish.
