Ambient Floor Lamps
There's a certain coziness that comes with ambient floor lamps. The edges and textures are softer than torchieres (even the ones with contemporary designs), the materials are often more natural, and the light is generally warm. They're portable and offer a welcoming personality to spaces. Available in many styles, floor lamps are also offered with different bases--from traditional to tripod--as well as various shade shapes.
Where Ambient Floor Lamps Work Best
A social center for congregating, the living room should have warm, all-over lighting and will benefit from ambient floor lamps. Add a floor lamp to the large foyer or entryway area for dramatic contemporary lighting and create structure in a bedroom with the fun shapes these ambient floor lights take. Since they're portable, it's easy to move them around furniture or from place to place should the redecorating bug strike. Whether in the corner of the room or directly placed where they will be highly visible, these ambient lights are sure to draw attention.
