Ambient lighting – we find that it is often the last element people think of when decorating their homes and spaces. In some sad cases it is a vital element completely forgotten about.
This type of lighting can be used to create a warm glow and set an intimate mood in your room when the main lights are switched off.
Loose-standing and move-able lamps, like standing lamps, are a great way of incorporating mood lighting into your space. Floor lamps add a vertical dimension to your space while taking up very little valuable floor space.
While some standing lamps can be rather drab, unappealing, and purely functional, the right selection can be an excellent tool to add another decorative element to your room.
We did a little online search to see how many trendy, attention-grabbing local floor lamps we could find. Here is our roundup of ten amazingly cool standing lamps for your home…
