The modern style emerged from the modernism movement during the early 20th century, deviating from the traditional art styles that flourished from the realism, abstract and renaissance eras. It became popular with the masses by the 1950s and have become a notable art style in the current years. The art style emphasizes functionality, simplicity, and elegance rather than grandiose and decorative elements. These concepts are imparted to floor lamp styles, making modern floor lamps distinguishable from other types due to their clean lines, geometric shapes, and fresh, practical outlook.
How to Choose your Modern Floor Lamp
Modern-styled floor lamps are among the most popular floor lamps in the market nowadays. As such, designers tend to maximize their creativity to create stunning new modern floor lamps that compete for buyers' attention and preferences. But, with so many options out, how do you know what to pick? Here are some guides you can use for choosing your next modern floor lamp:
Size: Modern floor lamps come in many sizes. Depending on the height, these lamps can make the room feel overcrowded or empty if the proportions are incorrect. One standard designer tip is that if the floor lamp is placed near a couch or a chair, consider following the eye-level rule. It describes that the bottom of the shade should be below or in line with the eye level to avoid light glare. Once that is determined, measure the floor lamp's height.
Room Placement: Floor lamps can be placed anywhere you like, but interior designers have a few tricks that may help you maximize your lamp's potential. For example, when looking for floor lamps to set against a wall, it's better to use lights with narrow bases or shades, like the Watchman Bell Black Wood Top Floor Lamp, than those with circular shapes, as the former harmonizes with the wall's flat surface more than the latter. Think wisely about where you want to set your future floor lamp before buying one.
Material: Floor lamps are composed of a standing body and their respective shade in their most traditional form. A floor lamp's body is often made of metal, which induces a rustic or distressed charm. However, floor lamps with glass and crystal bases like the Paloma Brass Cascading Clear Glass Rods Floor Lamp are becoming popular trends for those who prefer the sophisticated elite style. For modern lampshade materials, designers use tons of elements, including but not limited to iron, wood, glass, cloth, and even stones. Each brings out a different kind of allure and are bought to serve a specific purpose, like how shades made of cotton or linen similar to Antoinette Abstract White Resin Floor Lamp allow more light to scatter in the area, making the room a brighter and livelier space.
Lampshade style: Modern floor lamps have a wide range of designs, and each of them introduces a different kind of ambience to spaces. Floor lamps with patterned shades are best for adding a bit of fun to neutral settings. Lamps with bold coloured shades inject a fresh new outlook to a bland room. For rooms with darker hues or has little natural light, those with wider shades like the Denmark Curved Leg Wooden Floor Lamp are great additions as they let more light out.
These are a few of the tips you can try out when finding your next ideal floor lamp. Of course, it's your choice if you want to try them out or keep a blind eye. After all, the best floor lamp is still the one that your heart most desires.
Some Must-Know Reminders About Floor Lamps
Floor lamps, just like any other lighting equipment, needed to be handled with care and caution to prevent accidents like electrical shock and property damages. For safety and other reasons, make sure to always remember the following when buying and using your own lamps:
If you intend to use a new shade for your floor lamp, ensure that you buy one that perfectly covers the bulb socket.
Your lampshade should also be at least 3½ inches from the light bulb on all sides. This is to prevent an accidental fire caused by the heat the light bulb projects when it is on.
