At the end of the article, you will find a buying guide to help you choose a floor lamp that suits you.

Maddy Metal Floor Lamp: The Best Cheap
Modern wrought iron pattern
No problem identified
The Maddy floor lamp is a model that is both simple and sophisticated. Let me explain: he is a straight model standing, of solid color, but that is not banal so far. Its shape is singular, as well as its material. In wrought iron, it is a lamp that offers a good stability and remains easy to assemble.
It is compact, with a height of 160 cm and a diameter of 22 cm. Its 27 LED bulb has a power of 40 W and the advantage is that it is included in the pack, which is not always the case. You can turn it on and off via the small switch on the cable. The latter measures 2 meters.

IDMarket floor lamp: ideal for a mood light
Nuts deserve to be strengthened
The IDMarket floor lamp is an original model set on a wooden tripod and is in line with the industrial style. It is also a rather decorative floor lamp that, again, will easily match the decor of your home. Its light is ideal for a small cozy atmosphere at home!
It is surmounted by a large gray conical fabric shade (two diameters are available: the smallest is 33 cm, the most 46 cm x 25 cm (h) .The height is adjustable thanks to the steel joints. It is a model that is both chic and mat, perfect for a living room or a dining room.
It is a slender model that features 3 slim wooden feet for warm lighting. Its dimensions are 65 x 55 x 144 cm (W x D x H). The foot is adjustable from 73 to 118.5 cm. The E27 bulb (max 40 W) is unfortunately not supplied with this model.
According to the users, it corresponds exactly to the description that is made of it. His look is quite nice and in keeping with a lot of decor and furniture styles! This model is also available with a white or black shade. It is also very easy to assemble.
The gray shade only allows ambient lighting because it is quite opaque. So do not expect to light the entire room, but it will help bring a soothing atmosphere to your home. You will not be dazzled by the light and you will not have too many reflections if you look at a screen or TV.
According to users, the set is of good quality, but the nuts deserve to be a little more strengthened. It is therefore a pretty contemporary model, rather elegant, but lacks quality as for its finishes. A light bulb would not be too much.
If you like to match your furniture and decorations, you can find other models of matching lamps, including tripod bedside lamps.

The products of my selection on offer at the moment
Streetlights are not only functional – they illuminate a room more or less strongly – but also decorative! A floor lamp contributes to the atmosphere of a room: it is a little extra warm touch, whether placed near a sofa or in a corner of the room.
When buying a floor lamp, you will have a choice: from the classic model to the modern model, there is something for every taste and every living room: vintage lamp posts, in wood, with or without a dimmer, with LEDs, etc.
I will, in the following guide, dissect all this to help you find a lamp that is adapted to your needs!
Different models and types of lighting
The first thing to determine before buying is whether you want a mood light or a powerful light that can light a room. Depending on the model you choose, you can have a floor lamp equipped with a halogen lamp or integrated LED bulbs.
You have three main types of street lamps depending on the lighting they offer.
Streetlights recommended as main lighting
In main lighting, you have the choice between an arc lamp post, a right lamp post or a directional model.
The arc lamp post adapts easily to all types of rooms. You can place it in a corner of the living room, above a bar, a sofa or a coffee table. In the form of an arch, longer or longer depending on the model, it flies over the part to be illuminated. At the end of the stem, you have a shade, a globe or other glassware.
A right lamp post is obviously composed of a right foot (not curved unlike the first). It illuminates the ceiling directly. This is the most common model. These models are often made of metal and available in several colors.
Regarding the directional lamp, it also often consists of a right foot on which are positioned several directional light sources so that you can simultaneously illuminate several places in your room. Ideal for reading a book for example!
Streetlights recommended as extra lighting
For additional lighting or a dimmed atmosphere, you have the choice between a reading lamp, a lamp tube light or dimmer.
The reading lamps are equipped with a large fixed foot and a small swivel arm, so that you can fully enjoy your reading after dark.
The tube of light model offers a more subdued light, because it escapes mainly from the top and the bottom. The shape of these models is usually rather refined and their length gives the impression that it extends the height of your room. These models are inexorably reminiscent of Asian lamps – an Asian touch that can match your decor, if your interior lends itself.
Finally, the lamp dimmer is often equipped with a dimmer that adjusts the power of the lighting, a feature that I personally find very convenient! You can, in fact, adjust the intensity of the lighting to your liking to create a mood tailored to your needs.
Just note that if you install an LED bulb, it must be dimmable to withstand light variations.
Decorative floor lamps
If it is the decorative aspect that you prefer in the first place, a paper, design, wooden or connected floor lamp can then suit you.
The paper floor lamp consists of a metal rod on which are fixed sockets that accommodate the bulbs themselves. These models have a thin colored or plain paper covering that allows a more or less intense lighting depending on the models thanks to the semi opacity of its envelope. These paper models are round, square or twisted, patterned or otherwise uniform.
The design floor lamp is, in turn, often made of metal, chrome or brushed aluminum. This type of floor lamp is generally well suited to all contemporary style interiors. Often adopting an original form, it is a centerpiece in your living room that stands out from the rest of the furniture.
Some floor lamps give you the opportunity to put books or other decorative items on shelves like the Kenneth Floor Lamp by Maisons du Monde.
The creators are not lacking in inspiration: you will, for example, have original creations such as the Kushi Floor lamp by lberto Saggia and Valerio Sommella composed of brass rods surmounted by opaline glass diffusers for a chic effect and a soft light.
As for wooden models, they are generally popular because they are suitable for various environments. They are often equipped with lampshades of varying shapes and colors. These models find their place very easily in a living room or bedroom for example. Equipped with a right or triple foot, these wooden models can bring a soft and soothing touch to your interior!
Finally, we have the lamp connected. What can be hidden under this name? If you like modern deco, you probably already know that the connected floor lamp simply designates a model equipped with a remote control that allows you to adjust the lights (intensity, colors, etc.).
Halogen and LED street lamps
You have either halogen lamps or integrated LEDs. So, which model to choose?
The halogen floor lamp is part of the right foot lamps on which is positioned a metal cup. You often have a dimmer to change the intensity, so a light more or less powerful depending on your settings. On the other hand, it is those that obviously consume the most.
Integrated LEDs are more economical and less energy consuming than the previous ones. I recommend a white light, above 4000 K, for a main and rather yellow lighting, below 3500 K, for extra light or dim. You also sometimes have a dimmer for intensity and color.
You can also take a look at the energy class of the bulbs compatible with your model, the most energy-consuming being those of class A.
In conclusion, which floor lamp to choose?
So you have several styles of floor lamps. Curved, straight, with shades, etc. You will certainly find a model that will make you happy!
You have low or high lighting fixtures. For a model intended to offer a mood light or extra lighting, I recommend the metal Maddy floor lamp for a small budget and the Zanflare floor lamp which is, in my opinion, a timeless model.
For a powerful model, intended to illuminate an entire room, I recommend a floor lamp like the vintage lamp Parola. A model like this will be an undeniable decorative element in your home.
In the end, everything is a matter of taste. Personally, I very much appreciate the floor lamp Rendez Vous déco for its design that breaks with traditional models. You have retro lamps, chic, refined, rustic, classic with spotlights, lampshade, finally, everything you want!
The important thing is to define the type of lighting you need. Also take into account the dimensions so you do not end up with a lamppost too big or too small. For small spaces, opt for a discreet reading lamp.
