Creative Ways of Using Standing Lamps

Lighting in interiors plays a very important role, and it can determine the focus of the room, as well as setting the tone for the ambiance and ‘feel’ of the room. This is why in this blog post, we’re looking at standing lamps and floor lamps, which are easy to add in any space.

We really love how these over-sized desk lamps are transformed into floor lamps, adding an innovative and stylish look to bedrooms and living rooms.


They also look very stylish and daring in an office setting, as we’ve previously seen when we discussed the layout of the Leo Burnett office in Moscow:


If you are looking to create a richer light effect, the use of floor lamps of different heights works like a charm. Two of our favourite examples are these lighting systems one in a more traditional shape (left) and the second in a modern design (right):


Yet another style that is gaining popularity in specialty articles are the hanging floor lamps, and for good reason. We think they work great for areas looking to create a calmed down, relaxed surrounding, ideal for reading corners and living room spaces:

Styling Candles

What better way is there to change the mood and ambiance of a room than with lighting? From cute tea lights to taper candles and the ubiquitous pillar candles, these nifty items can be an effective way to tickle the senses with inviting beauty and gorgeous scents.

We’ll start the week off exploring one of our favourite lighting accessories – candles. We’ve rounded up a few ways to style these effortlessly.

Spruce up the coffee table: Candles arranged alongside vases, books and other decorative accessories add that extra personality to a coffee table any day any time. We like the visual weight created by the collective presence of the items.


Create an inviting bathroom: With the warm, fuzzy glow they give, candles transform these bathrooms into tranquil sanctuaries. Using candles of the same colour work particularly well to create harmony.



Make way for beautiful dining: Let’s not forget the dining room. Whilst candles might not always be used for all mealtimes, their presence especially at night may be just what you need to enhance your dining experience.
