There’s no doubt that the sleek, elegant lines of arc floor lamps add a sense of style to a room. A must have when you want to illuminate a particular feature or corner, I love them because they are a flexible lighting option, timeless in style and can be relied upon to really make a statement. You simply can’t miss that swooping arm which naturally draws your eye to the shade at the end of the curve and therefore whatever the light is highlighting below.
The arc lamp we were sent recently is the beautiful Shing Fabric Floor Lamp from Lights.co.uk. Although arc lights usually have quite a retro look about them, often with a round opaque glass or shiny curved metal shade, the wide and narrow fabric band of the shade, in pristine white fabric, looks fresh and contemporary.
Also available with a chic black shade, the bold yet minimal style of this floor lamp is perfect in our conservatory, positioned over the sideboard to highlight the wooden surface and accessories below.
With such a substantial lamp, you might worry that it could be a bit unstable, but check out the solid marble base it sits on – extremely heavy and durable, so the lamp is not going to topple over.
Homeware in marble is really on trend right now (in fact I’ve got a circular coffee table with a marble top on order, so I’m hoping it will match nicely). In the meantime, I’ve used my marble ‘Lazy Susan’ (which is really meant for serving food) as a plant and candle stand – I think it works well!
The shade conceals the lamp fitting which features 3 light bulb sockets making it nice and bright – brilliant for our conservatory where it can be quite dark at night, since we don’t have a main overhead light (just a fan with a built in light which isn’t very bright at all).
The lamp costs £133.90 and is shipped from Germany, therefore Lights.co.uk provide free European to UK adapters with each light they send.
You can use halogen bulbs and power-saving, energy-efficient or LED lamps.
I’ve always been a fan of arc lights, but I’m particularly thrilled with how the White Shing Fabric Floor lamp looks and think it has added a great finishing touch to our space.
With thanks to Lights.co.uk – all thoughts and opinions regarding this gifted item are my own and genuine.
