Maddy metal floor lamp : the best cheap
The Maddy floor lamp is both simple and sophisticated. Let me explain: it is a straight model on a stand, of a solid color, but which is not trivial either. Its shape is singular, as well as its material. Made of wrought iron, it is a lamp that offers good stability and remains easy to mount.
It is compact, with a height of 160 cm and a diameter of 22 cm. Its LED bulb 27 has a power of 40 W and the advantage is that it is included in the pack, which is not always the case. You can turn it on and off using the small switch on the cable. The latter measures 2 meters.

The gray lampshade allows only ambient lighting, because it is quite opaque. So don’t expect to light up the whole room, but it will help bring a soothing atmosphere to your interior. You will not be dazzled by the light and you will not have too many reflections if you watch a screen or TV.
According to users, the assembly is of good quality, but the nuts deserve to be a little more reinforced. It is therefore a pretty contemporary model, rather elegant, but which lacks quality as for its finishes. A bulb would not be too much either.

How to choose a floor lamp?
The floor lamps are not only both functional – they more or less brighten a room – but also decorative! A floor lamp contributes to the atmosphere of a room: it is an additional warm touch, whether placed near a sofa or in a corner of the room.
When buying a floor lamp, you will have a choice: from the classic model to the modern model, there is something for all tastes and all living rooms: vintage floor lamps, in wood, with or without dimmer, with LEDs, etc.
I will, in the following guide, dissect all this to help you find a floor lamp that is suitable for your needs!
The different models and types of lighting
The first thing to determine before purchasing is whether you want a mood light or a strong light that can light up an entire room. Depending on the model you choose, you can have a floor lamp fitted with a halogen lamp or with integrated LED bulbs.
You have three main types of floor lamps depending on the lighting they provide.
Floor lamps recommended as main lighting
In main lighting, you have the choice between an arc floor lamp, a straight floor lamp or a directional model.
The arc floor lamp easily adapts to all types of rooms. You can place it in a corner of the living room, above a bar, a sofa or a coffee table. In the form of a hoop, more or longer depending on the model, it flies over the part to be lit. At the end of the stem, you have a lampshade, a globe or another glassware.
A straight floor lamp obviously consists of a straight foot (unlike the first one). It lights up the ceiling directly. It is the most widespread model. These models are often made of metal and available in several colors.
As for the directional floor lamp, it also often consists of a straight foot on which are positioned several adjustable light sources so that you can simultaneously light several places in your room. Ideal for reading a book for example!
Floor lamps recommended as auxiliary lighting
For supplemental lighting or a subdued atmosphere, you have the choice between a reading floor lamp, a light tube lamp or a dimmer.
The reading lamps are equipped with a large fixed foot and a small swivel arm, so that you can fully enjoy your reading after dark.
The light tube model offers more subdued light, as it escapes mainly from the top and bottom. The shape of these models is generally quite refined and their length gives the impression that it lengthens the height of your room. These models are inexorably reminiscent of Asian lamps – an Asian touch that can also go with your decor, if your interior is suitable.
Finally, the dimmer lamp is often equipped with a dimmer which allows you to adjust the power of the lighting, a characteristic that I personally find very practical! You can, in fact, adjust the intensity of the lighting to your liking to create a custom atmosphere according to your needs.
Just note that if you install a Led bulb, it must be dimmable to be able to withstand the variations of light.
Decorative floor lamps
If it is the decorative aspect that you favor in the first place, a paper, design, wooden or connected floor lamp may then be suitable for you.
The paper floor lamp consists of a metal rod on which are fixed sockets which themselves hold the bulbs. These models have a thin colored or plain paper covering which allows more or less intense lighting depending on the models thanks to the semi opacity of its envelope. These paper models are round, square or even twisted, with patterns or, on the contrary, uniform.
The design floor lamp is often made of metal, chrome or brushed aluminum. This type of floor lamp generally goes well with all contemporary style interiors. Often adopting an original form, it is a centerpiece in your living room that stands out from the rest of the furniture.
Some floor lamps offer the possibility of placing books or other decorative items on shelves such as the Kenneth Floor Lamp from Maisons du Monde .
The creators are not lacking in inspiration: you will, for example, have original creations like the Kushi Floor lamp by lberto Saggia and Valerio Sommella composed of brass rods topped with opal glass diffusers for a chic and a soft light.
As for the wooden models, they are generally very appreciated because they are adapted to various environments. They are often fitted with a shade of varying shape and color. These models find their place very easily in a living room or a bedroom for example. Equipped with a straight or triple foot, these wooden models can bring a soft and soothing touch to your interior!
Finally, we have the floor lamp connected. What can be hidden under this name? If you like modern decor, you probably already know that the connected floor lamp simply designates a model equipped with a remote control that allows you to adjust the lights (intensity, colors, etc.)
Halogen and LED street lights
You have either the halogen lamps or the integrated LEDs. So which model to choose?
The halogen floor lamp is one of the standard floor lamps on which a metal cup is positioned. You often have a dimmer to change the intensity, so a more or less powerful light depending on your settings. On the other hand, it is those which obviously consume the most.
Integrated LEDs are more economical and less energy-consuming than the previous ones. I recommend a white light, above 4000 K, for main lighting and rather yellow, below 3500 K, for an auxiliary or dimmed light. You also sometimes have a dimmer for intensity and color.
You can also take a look at the energy class of bulbs compatible with your model, the least energy-consuming being those of class A.
In conclusion, which floor lamp to choose?
So you have several styles of floor lamps. Curved, straight, lampshade, etc. You will certainly find a model that will make you happy!
You have low or high light fixtures. For a model intended to provide ambient light or auxiliary lighting, I recommend the Maddy metal floor lamp for a small budget and the Zanflare floor lamp which is, in my opinion, a timeless model.
For a powerful model, intended to light up an entire room, I recommend a floor lamp like the vintage Parola floor lamp instead . A model like this will also be an undeniable decorative element in your interior.
In the end, everything is a matter of taste. Personally, I really like the Rendez vous déco floor lamp for its design that breaks with traditional models. You have retro, chic, refined, rustic, classic floor lamps with spotlights, lampshades, finally, whatever you want!
The important thing is to define above all the type of lighting that you need. Also take into account the dimensions so as not to end up with a floor lamp that is too large or too small. For small spaces, opt instead for a discreet reading lamp.
