Here’s another prime example of how to mix different types of lighting (directional vs. ambient): You’ll notice that the floor lamp in the room above falls under the "ambient" category because the fabric lampshade would delicately diffuse light around the space. This lights a room more thoroughly, as opposed to the task lamp on the desk. The hard metal shade means no light can escape except for in the direction it’s pointing (hence, directional lighting). These are really great lamp types for reading, working, doing anything hobby-ish. The light is strong and bright right where you need it (and basically nowhere else). You’ll want to be sure this type of lamp is low enough (or can be directed down) that it doesn’t blind you.
It’s crucial to have good ambient lighting in a space. Hopefully you’ve got your table lamps covered (at least two), but then you need a floor lamp for that dead, dark corner. You start to gather inspiration and see all these images with really cool, sculptural floor lamps. It can be so easy to get caught up in how great it will look AND fill out that space, it’s almost like a piece of art!
This minimalist lamp in a mid-century modern design is a unique accent piece for a luxurious vibe. Thick iron legs hold this tripod lamp and the lamp shade has fabric and plastic casing. Place it in your living room with your contemporary or mid-century modern furniture. Or use it in your office reception area, pairing it with a mid-century modern accent chair.
Thick, staggered metal rings finished in antiqued gold lend this floor lamp a unique look. Topped with a taupe linen shade, this modern lamp can add a luxury feel to your living room.
