Why We Love Swing Arm Floor Lamps
Swing arm floor lamps combine portability with adjustability for light fixtures of fantastic convenience. They are perfectly proportioned as reading lights, easily reached and adjusted by someone seated in an easy chair. Most of the swing arm floor lights offered at Lumens are streamlined and modern, but there are also more traditional options as well. So you can do paperwork, hobbies or read with ease in settings of any style.
Where Swing Arm Floor Lamps Work Best
Swing arm floor lamps often find their home in the living room, bedroom or in the home office. This style of floor lamp works particularly well when placed in your favorite reading spot (beside a cushy easy chair or sofa), beside a craft table or next to the desk in your home office. The versatility of an adjustable arm means you can have a wealth of task-oriented and focused light any time and anywhere you need it, simply by swinging the light source in the direction you need. If you are like us and like carving out some time to catch up on a good book, you'll especially love reading with the plentiful amount of light from a swing arm floor lamp. And in home offices, these lamps can assist you with filing paperwork or paying bills, in addition to providing a source of decorative lighting for the space.

How to Choose the Best Swing Arm Floor Lamp
Because floor lamps with arms will facilitate a common task like reading, you will want to thoroughly research a fixture to make sure it is the right fit for you and your application. A floor lamp with adjustable arms is not noticeably large, however, the swinging arm will require plenty of room to stretch out. When picking out a new floor lamp, be sure to review its sizing dimensions including height, weight and length (how far the arm will reach), as well as it's lamping options to know what kind of light bulb you will need. If the lamp is intended to facilitate purposes of reading, you'll want to review its brightness as well (often referred to as lumen output).

Most of the lamps featured here serve a purpose of being highly stylish and acting as an effective type of reading light. If you are not in need of a reading lamp per se, you may want to see the collection of ambient floor lamps. Ambient lamps offer an abundance of general, warm light that is not always focused or used for certain tasks. Ambient light fixtures are a great choice for those rooms with low light that need just a little extra illumination. Consider a multi-arm floor lamp if you require a fixture that can direct more than one point of light from protruding arms. Multi-arm or multi-bulb floor lamps are often adjustable and are also perfect for reading or task lighting. Finally, swing arm wall lights provide similarly functional convenience and style, with the added benefit of freeing up usable floor space.
