Decorating with Lighting / Chandeliers / Standing Lamps or Woven Pendants
Whether you call them standing lamps, standard lamps or floor lamps, these decorative lights are big news at the moment
In addition to providing general lighting and task lighting for reading, floor lamps add a strong graphic element to a room and can be used as focal points and practical sculptures depending on the design you choose. If your sofa and chairs are all more or less the same height, bringing in a standing lamp breaks the horizontal lines, making the room look more interesting.
While the obvious route is to choose a lamp that fits in with the style of your room, you can also shake things up by placing a modern design in a traditional room or a vintage lamp in a contemporary interior.
Overscaling can be very effective in a small space. In this apartment a tall, adjustable floor lamp draws the eye upwards creating the illusion of space and takes up very little space in a corner.
Table lamps are just as popular. Use one beautiful lamp to make a statement or balane out a table or server by using two identical lamps.
