When you know your furniture layout, suddenly lighting decisions all fall into place. You can place floor lamps, table lamps and wall lights in select areas you know will light the space well – and you can plan to have plug sockets and wall lights chased in accordingly.
In our living area, we knew we’d be installing alcove shelving at some point, so made it a priority to install plug points at either side of the chimney breast to discreetly plug in table lamps. On the opposite side of the room we’ve lit up a corner with a slim floor lamp. There’s not a lot of space in this room, so we factored in a skinny floor lamp that could sit behind the sofa, easy to reach over and switch on when the night draws in.
The Cera Table Lamp would sit neatly on a console table, sofa side table or alcove shelving. Put it with a dark teal wall and it will really sing and cast amazing light from beneath.
We’re big into adjustable floor lamps that allow you to direct light anywhere that works (i.e away from the reflection on the TV). The Cooper Floor Lamp is skinny enough to sit between or behind furniture and will give you flexibility with the light it casts.
