Thinking of adding some extra light into your home? The simplest way is by the addition of a lamp! All you need to do is buy it, get it and plug it in – it’s that easy! There are hundreds of styles available, so you could well spend a long time deliberating. Floor lamps have always been very popular; at one time no self-respecting family would consider showing anyone into the best room without a standard lamp on display. Recalling standard lamps, you’ll no doubt picture a traditional chintzy, vintage shade on a mahogany base, straight from a childhood memory; but oh – how things have changed!

Whilst these ‘standard’ lamps have had a modern makeover and can now stand tall bedecked with fancy silk shades of an assortment of colours, there are now so many different designs of floor lamps for you to choose from. From here on in I’m referring to the ‘new breed’ of floor standing lamps, simply as ‘Floor Lamps’, as standard lamps is an old fashioned phrase, worthy of matching that dusty old chintz shade.

So, what change prompted this revelation, or should I say revolution? No… it’s an evolution; it’s LED! LED stands for light emitting diodes and these light sources are very low energy, cool to the touch and crucially very small which allows a diverse amount of design potential and my – how this has elevated the look of the standard lamp… ahem; sorry, floor lamp – take a bow!

Did you know that a bright freestanding lamp, be it table or floor lamp can often bring more light to a room than a ceiling light? In the depth of winter months adding a lamp is a quick stylish fix; it’s really the most speedy and sensible option when your home looks gloomy.

What choice is there in floor lamps? The short answer is there’s a huge choice, so many in fact we have added some filters to our website allowing you to select lamps by colour such as Chrome Table and Floor Lamps, Brass table and Floor lamps and so on. I won’t list every colour option but do dive in to the website and browse the full range of colours. But first, let’s give some of the showstoppers worth of a little limelight. We’ll start with the most modern of the floor lamps, those with integrated LEDs.

Smart Light NEVIS LED floor lamp in textured gold finish

This is a sleek LED floor lamp in an on-trend textured gold finish. The curved structure is mirrored by a smaller version which houses the LEDs which then reflects from the back plate for a subtle, glare free illumination. It is also available in a silver finish to match in with more cool and crisp colour schemes.

Smart Light POLINA contemporary LED floor lamp in brushed steel

The Polina floor lamp is a shining example of the design benefits that LED technology has permitted. Intricate braided style structure which uses only 28 watts but offering over 2000 lumens (the equivalent of TWO old 100 watt bulbs!!!).

Depending on the bulb the lamp requires, some can be fitted with Smart Bulbs that work with apps or remote controls, allowing you to set scenes, dim, select your whites, change colours and so much more. We’ve produced some fantastic video blogs on the subject so we’d highly recommend that you take a look at these to inspire and amuse (we hope!). Feel free to forward the link to any tech geek you may know they’ll love the ability of control that these lights offer but are sure to be interested in our animated video blog too. We’ve made this content for sharing, so please do.

Back to LED Floor Lamps, I mentioned earlier the shapes using integrated LED allows designer to achieve is breathtaking. If you are short of space, we have a novel solution with a floor lamp which comes with a table attached. There are some super stylish standing lamps here are 6 of the best most unusual of the range.

If you enjoy reading, then the Mother and child lighting range will be ideal for you! Featuring a main light, they also feature a reading light that you can adjust to best suit your book, magazine or newspaper, or it would be ideal for crafts, such as sewing and knitting. Below you will see our standard mother and Child but allow me to compare this to the lamp that is sure to supersede the best seller. LED versions afford you all the benefits of a more traditionally lit lamp, however they require only a small amount of electricity to power the light, so these lights will help you reduce your electricity bill.
