How much are you willing to spend on your light fittings?
How about $9,000,000?
Yup, that's what someone paid for an 8-candle chandelier from the Givenchy Royal Hanover collection back in 2011 - and I guess the candles were not included!
Too rich for you - then what about an Alberto Tedeschi chandelier masterpiece - a snip at a mere $1,000,000!
Ah well - we can only dream on - but it was a nice thought nevertheless.
But enough of wishful thinking - let's bring those chandeliers down to earth in the form of a humble multi light floor lamp.
Now that's a lighting option we can afford.
We've selected five models that offer variations in design, size, materials and color. A wide choice that will fit in with most home decor style.
They might not be covered in diamonds but they will give you several stylish options in lighting your room and they're also pleasing on the eye. The many people who bought them think so anyway!

The Orion is 74 inches tall with the spread of around 30 inches plus. The lamp is stabilized on a weighted base and can be used in rooms where there are children and animals. There is some contradictory information about where the base is most stable - hard or carpeted floors. I would guess the lamp is most stable on hard floors.
The energy efficient and safe LED lights have an estimated 20 yr lifespan and emit a blazing 2250 lumens of warm light- no need for any other lights in the room! No need for replacement bulbs either - think of the money saved over those 20 years! These LEDs cannot be dimmed and burn at full brightness.

Each head has a 9.5 watt power saving LED bulb giving out 800 lumens.

There's three-way turn switch that controls whether you want two, three or all five lamps on. Some reviewers mentioned that they fixed the colored shades to suit the three settings to create different mood lighting.
For example, one person placed the orange and yellow shades on the two bulb setting to create a warm background light for their bedroom. Someone else said that the five lights on together were sufficient to light their living room.
The bulb arms are flexible which means that you can point the lights in any direction that suits you.
