As the weather grows colder, we tend to become homebodies. While it’s raining outside, nothing is better than snuggling up on the couch with a warm blanket and a hot drink while catching up on the latest episodes of a favourite tv show.
This is why it’s important to create a comfortable and cosy vibe in your living room. Blankets, candles and soft cushions only go so far — you can up the warmth factor by utilising softly-lit lamps. Let’s take a look and some of the best lamps on offer at the moment.
Simple yet so stylish, this floor lamp from Temple & Webster is the perfect addition to any lounge room. The matte black lamp shade is opaque, blocking the light so you’ll get a softer glow than you would when using your overhead lighting.
Thanks to the white glass shade, this lamp emits a soft light which will make your living room feel romantic and warm and the antique The bronze detailing adds an extra element to an otherwise simple design, creating a layered aesthetic.
Splash out and spend a little extra — this lamp is worth it. The yellow elements in the hand-crafted lampshade create a honeyed tint to the light and this elegant piece is sure to become a conversation starter.
One of the great things about this product is the fact that you can swap from using a daylight globe to a warm white bulb by simply turning it over. Why is this important? Yellow tones, like those found in warm white LED light bulbs, mimic the glow from an open fireplace and create a relaxing ambience.
While on the more expensive side, this steel and wood table lamp has a black lampshade with gold interior, so when you turn it on it’ll produce an orange glow. This produces a similar effect to the yellow-toned light bulbs.
The unique mushroom shape of this cordless Owl lamp from Neoz directs light downwards, creating the perfect cosy atmosphere. The brushed stainless steel finish means this lamp will fit in with most decor styles.
