Looking for a floor lamp for reading? Go black.
Black floor lamps can be placed under one category by themselves. That’s how powerful I think they are.
Floor lamps can be so many different things. They can be a modest object that illuminates your book. They can be a conversation starter. Nicely designed ones can augment a room, and make a bold statement, even if they’re in a seemingly neutral color.
And there are circumstances in which they should come as your first and ultimate choice of light. Circumstances when you won’t and can’t ever go back once you’ve go for black.
Read on to find if any of them applies to you!
1. Your home library has a contemporary setting
Black is one of the most loved color by designing experts in contemporary style interiors, together with white and neutrals.
Regardless of the material and the design of the lamp, it can very easily match with other furnitures and decors in the library or reading nook.
It’s actually the perfect color you can use in any space, be it your home, office, or a store with modern style.
3. You want a good light, not a decorative object
You already have enough of decorative items in your room.
You have hundreds of books taking up lots of space.
All you want is a good quality floor lamp that brightens things up so you can enjoy the sight of your hardcovers, and actually read the titles.
You don’t need a gimmicky, colorful light to take up more space and steal the show, or worse, destroy the look and the organization.
You want something with modesty and neutrality.
That’s what a simple black floor lamp is.
