While lamps aren’t often used as an ambient, or general, lighting source — though on rare occasions they can be — they are a great choice for any task and accent lighting needs you have. Better yet, lamps don’t have to be purely functional. At Franklin Lighting, we carry some truly beautiful and ornate floor lamps that are sure to draw attention.
Earlier, we touched a bit on the versatility of lamp lighting, so now we’re going to share a bit about the different types of lamp lighting and how you can use them most effectively to bolster your lighting strategy.
Floor lamps are among the most popular of lamp options, and for good reason. The freestanding design of floor lamps makes for easy placement throughout whatever room you put them in, as long as they are in reach of an electrical outlet. They require no complex installation or rewiring, and they are already pre-mounted. It’s hard to get more versatile than this.
The main difference between a floor lamp and a table lamp have to do with size. They are designed to fit nicely on a table, desk, dresser, or nightstand. They are great for task lighting. Whether you use them as a reading lamp, or to give a warm, peaceful glow in a room, table lamps make a great addition to any lighting strategy.
Accent lamps are often 22 in. or less and can be used to set romantic / ambient light or to give decorative flair on top of your mantle or a table. If you’re using accent lamps in combination with floor lamps, make sure they are placed so that the top of the lamps are relatively even in height. That way when your eyes scan the light sources in the room, you don’t have the jerking up and down movement.
Swing arm lamps have a unique design that consists of a stationary base with a flexible arm that allows you to extend or move the light as you see fit. Swing arm lamps come in floor and wall-mounted style fixtures.
Pharmacy lamps were developed in the 1890s and were quickly adopted by pharmacies for their direct downward lighting — hence the name. These stylish lamps come in a wide variety of finishes as well as modern and traditional designs and give a great utilitarian vibe to any space.
Thanks to their unique U-shaped bowl, torchieres are designed to send light upward and outward. If you’re looking for a soft glow that creates an inviting atmosphere, this style of lamp is perfect for you.
Perhaps you feel the need to breathe new life into your lamp but don’t feel the need to invest in a new fixture. Replacing your shade is a great way to do that.
While there aren’t exactly hard and fast rules to lighting, there are helpful guidelines you can follow. Here are some that’ll help you pick out the right shade.
When choosing a new lamp shade you’ll want to find one that’s around one-third the size of the entire fixture.
As far as width goes, you’ll want something that’s no larger than two times the width of the base.
Another important thing to do when choosing a lamp shade is to consider the style of the base. These should more or less match to ensure uniformity and a cohesive design.
