11 Floor Lamp Ideas Just Right for a Contemporary Home

Lighting is such a key element in any setting making floor lamp ideas an important accessory to consider when outfitting a home.  There will always be situations that require adequate illumination to perform basic tasks such as reading newspapers, perusing through magazines, sewing or typing on a laptop.  The basic fact is that people need to see what they are doing.  That is where these accessories are so helpful.  Ceiling installations and sconces offer a great baseline of lumens in a home, but there is a need to have more portable sources that can be moved around and adjusted, as the furniture layout changes in a room.  So what will go next to your favorite sofa or chair?  It could very well be a side table, but if you wish to not have one or lack the space, then consider one of these eleven examples from this article.
