Cheap Floor Lamps

Floor lamps are an increasingly popular style for home lighting design, but they can still be purchased on a budget.

When decorating a home, selecting the right cheap lighting is important for both your style and your budget. On the one hand, you want something that will look great in your home, suit the rest of your decor, and illuminate your rooms in a way that is both attractive and effective. On the other hand, unless it is cheap, free-standing lighting can easily take up far too much of your decoration budget, as the metal and glass materials can become far too expensive.

Cheap free-standing lighting has increased in popularity in recent years over traditional desk and table lighting. Free-standing lighting is far more easily placed within a room. This versatility gives you options in how you want your room illuminated, allowing you to use different areas for reading or recreation that might not otherwise be accessible with table lighting. Further, for those with small children or cats, table lights are often easily broken, as they are small and have a long way to fall. A sturdy free-standing light will last for years, and add to the child- and pet-proofing of your home.

Arc Floor Lamps

Arc floor lamps are one of the most popular styles on the market today. With their arched style, they make the perfect reading lights, able to be located easily in the corner, but with the bulb easily put overhead for your reading enjoyment. They also lend contours to your room. While a verticle light can appear harsh in some environments, and arced one rounds out your room’s corners, gently carrying the eye vertically. Combined with the ability to easily swivel them to create the best lighting ambiance, arc free-standing lights are one of the best styles available on the market today.

Contemporary Floor Lamps

Contemporary styles provide a variety of designs and shapes. Contemporary free-standing lighting provides a series of great options for augmenting your modern sense of style. Contemporary furniture is where art meets design. Functional and geometrical shapes are turned into esthetic enjoyment. This has the pleasant side-effect that contemporary styles are often not very expensive to produce and those savings are passed on to you, the consumer.

Tiffany-Style Floor Lamps

Tiffany’s in New York has influenced our culture in many ways beyond fantastic Audrey Hepburn films. In the first half of the Twentieth Century, they created a style that is just as popular now as it was then. The combination of a sturdy and strong stem with classy and delicate shade has truly changed the way we light our homes. Fortunately, the style itself is now produced by many different companies, not simply Tiffany’s. Therefore, there are often great options available in the Tiffany style.

Vintage Floor Lamps

Finding just the right vintage style is one of those challenges that can making shopping so much fun. Not only do you have all of the modern styles that exist but all the styles that ever did. Finding vintage items is even more of a challenge – and provides an even greater sense of success! Fortunately, there are many online sources of vintage free-standing lighting that can easily meet any taste, and at prices that will surprise even the most conservative shopper. They are another great option for those seeking stylish lighting.
