I’m always on the lookout for great floor lamps that are functional & look beautiful on or off. If a client doesn’t go ahead with our first choice, we often go through a second option phase where we assemble a range of other ‘maybes’. I thought it might be interesting to see some of our favourites. Things that I look for in a great floor lamp are; 1. Scale: if its going to sit next to an armchair then it needs to be fairly petite & complement it as if it was the other half of a pair. There is nothing worse than having a large floor lamp that dwarfs the chair or a sofa that dwarfs the lamp, 2. Adjustment: can you move or angle the head up or down, side to side, these are all part of the finishing touches to pulling a room together & pointing the light to where you need it, 3. Dimming: a cosy mood is never creating by interiors blasted with light, being able to adjust the lighting down to a moody glow when you need it is the secret to a gorgeous interior. I spend my life in lamp light, we all look better that way!
