Ambient Floor Lamps
There's a certain coziness that comes with ambient floor lamps. The edges and textures are softer than torchiere floor lamps (even the ones with contemporary designs), the materials are often more natural, and the light is generally warmer. 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 floor fixtures are sure to draw attention.
An Ambient Lamp for Every Style
Because this collection of ambient lights have features that address a number of interior design styles, they are able to fit in seamlessly in classic and traditional homes or spaces with the most ultra-modern decor. Transitional floor lamps by Robert Abbey can easily adapt to a range of homes, while Pablo Designs offer a number of LED ambient lamps aimed toward the energy efficient home. If you are a fan of Scandinavian design, you'll love the lamps by Finland's Secto Design or Denmark's Louis Poulsen.

Choosing the Best Ambient Floor Lamp
Shape and size are of critical importance in this selection of ambient lamps. You'll need to properly measure the space where your new floor lamp will live to understand how large of a lamp you will need. Although most of these floor lamp designs have a somewhat slim profile, you will want to thoroughly understand a lamp's length, height, width and weight. Additionally, review the lamp's bulb options if you have a preference for a halogen floor lamp vs. an LED floor lamp.
