Floor Lamps

A carefully chosen floor lamp completes the lighting scheme of a room and adds design flair to the space. There are thousands of floor lamps online to choose from in the Manhattan, New York City, area, so how do you choose the right one?

Light

The most important consideration for choosing a floor lamp is light. Do you want the lamp for task lighting or for ambient light? If you want task lighting, the height of the light should be at eye level while sitting and the style of both the lamp and the shade design should point the light in the direction you need it. If your lighting needs are more ambient, you still may want light to point in a specific direction to highlight a feature of the room. When designing ambiance, you also need to consider the quality of the light.

Style

Beyond light, style is an important consideration when choosing a floor lamp. Floor lamps should fit comfortably in the space and be scaled appropriately to the room. Some lamps will add light and ambiance while staying in the background and others will be bold statements in and of themselves. Fabrics and other design materials should echo the style of the room.
