Multi-Arm Floor Lamps
Multi-light floor lamps perform two tasks at once: they provide ambient light for brightening the overall room and they offer focused light (in the form of an adjustable task lamp) when reading light or project work illumination is needed. These can be independently controlled handing you even more freedom in addition to the multi-arm light fixture's portability and adjustability.
Where Multi-Arm Floor Lamps Work Best
Wherever your favorite reading lounge chair is located--that's where a multi-light floor lamp is meant to be. Most often that's in the living room, but this could be the reading nook or the home office as well. These types of floor lamps contribute to the cozy nature of these places in the home, warming them with their ambient light and making them more useful with their focused light. Multi-bulb floor lamps also come in a variety of sizes and shapes. For a modern 5-light floor lamp, you will want to see the Arteriors Pruitt Floor Lamp. And for a 3-light floor lamp, our favorite is the Jonathan Adler Havana Floor Lamp.
Other Great Options
If you love the style of a multi-light floor lamp, you may like a similarly designed ceiling light in the form of a multi-light pendant. This type of pendant light has multiple light sources, much like that of a floor lamp with multiple arms. And be sure to check out our selection of reading lights for other ways to add lighting to your reading space. These lights offer similar lighting freedom and portability as the multi-arm floor lamp, but for the wall or desk.
