Brightech Floor Lamp with Table

Special Radiance

If you want to create some special or unusual atmosphere in your living or guest room, do not pass by a gorgeous Brightech Floor Lamp with a table. When it comes to the traditional style floor lamps, it is often the shade that can make all the difference. The shades are usually replaceable, adding versatility and flexibility to a certain model. By changing the shade, you can spice up your existing décor or change the mood of your room. This is exactly what the Madison Floor Lamp from Brightech is about.

It comes with a classic shade featuring an Art Deco inspired black and white pattern. This vivid and eye-catching shade will add vibrancy to your room and provide charming radiance for a soothing and relaxing feel. However, an elegant shade is not the only distinctive advantage of this model. There is more to come. A slender brass arm slopes into a two-tiered table of blackwood. A solid tabletop is a perfect rest for a teacup or your favorite book while two shelves below allow displaying some decorative items or lovely knick-knacks.

But what really sets this floor lamp apart from its peers is 2 USB ports and a power outlet on the front panel of the table. It’s an exceptional and very convenient feature rarely seen on a desk to say nothing of a floor lamp. Hence, with the Madison Floor Lamp, you can easily charge your smartphone or e-book and even power your laptop, if needed. The power cord of a lamp itself is 8-foot long; it gives you an opportunity to put a floor lamp almost anywhere in the room, not necessarily in immediate proximity to an electric socket. This magnificent floor lamp from Brightech will not only imbue a luxury look to your living space but also undoubtedly become a functional element of décor.

ORE 6962SN

Give a Distinctive Ambiance to Your Living Space

It is a common knowledge that your mood can change from soothing and relaxing to vibrant and even festive depending on the light brightness in a room. Hence, a dimming function that allows you to adjust the light intensity is a great benefit for any lighting fixture. The ORE 6962SN Arch Floor Lamp is just the model in point. This sophisticated lamp features a dimmer switch for enhanced control over the light intensity. You can set either a soft mood lighting to snuggle on the couch and watch TV or a bright illumination for reading, writing or craftwork.

On top of that, this lamp boasts an extraordinary, kind of futuristic design that will make it the hallmark of your interior and turn heads of all your guests. A 5-arm metal system with a nice-looking satin nickel finish is very durable and sturdy. A U-shaped base ensures stability and prevents the lamp skidding; 5 dome-shaped fixtures can brighten up many areas in one part of a room at once. However, note that this model uses 40 W bulbs not included in the set. So, purchase several bulbs in advance.

A sophisticated ORE lamp will add a casual touch to any modern room design and will go great with any sofa or next to your bed, TV or even a bookshelf. 

If you are into all kinds of handwork, a craft table from our latest review can become your cozy and comfortable working place.

IKEA Rice Paper Shade

Extra Light Source

If you need a simple yet efficient extra light source in any of your rooms to add some ambiance or accentuate your interior, the IKEA Floor Lamp is an excellent option. The lamp design is fairly simple and consists of a lamp stand and a long cylindrical shade. The shade is made from rice paper and creates a nice glow around to add soft ambiance to your living space and create a romantic and relaxing feel.

Despite its quite plain design, the IKEA lamp features a dimming function for you to change the light intensity to your liking. The lamp comes disassembled but the assembly is a real snap, it won’t take much time and efforts. Simply follow a comprehensive instruction included in the set.

The lamp stand holds a 40 W bulb. Though the bulb is sold separately, it’s not so much a drawback since it leaves a lot to your imagination. You can experiment with colors of LED bulbs to get a nice violet, blue or pink diffused lighting. It’s always interesting to try something different and give your home a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Once you want to enhance or accentuate some items in your room, like a TV or gaming set, we recommended using several IKEA floor lamps at once. Make this lamp a beautiful and subtle accent to your home décor and enjoy the charm of glowing ambiance. 

Another attribute that will add to a cozy and homey atmosphere of your household is an oil heater that will help create an optimal microclimate in your home during a cold season.
