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!
This model is everything you would expect from the Brightech team - durable, safe, well designed and efficient. This particular pattern comes in a brushed bronze finish but satin nickel is available as well.
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.
This model is covered by a 36-month warranty common to all Brightech light fittings.
This unit is 70 inches high and is 30 inches across. The pole and the adjustable inch long bulb arms are both finished in silver.
It uses 25W maximum candelabra base bulbs which are not included with the package. Use LED lights for full brightness if that's what you need. And there is the economical benefit of using LED along with the low heat emission that reduces burns risk. There is a three-way switch to turn on the bulbs in two, three or five groups.
This is a comparatively cheap multi bulb floor lamp. And as you get the extra shades included in the price, it seems to me to be good deal - most of those who have bought this unit thinks so.
There's also something "ye olde worlde" about this model (flaming sconces comes to mind) - must be the antique bronze finished pole and the rough beige shades!
The Trinity is available in 3 and 5 arm options in a variety of finishes making it even more flexible in blending in with various home color schemes.
You'll need a fair amount of space and tall ceilings to fit it in - it's 82 inches high and 44 inches wide and it sits on a 12.5 inch base for stability.
The lighting set-up is based on 13W CFL bulbs (not included). As this is equal to the older 100W incandescent bulbs, there will be ample light for even large rooms. There's a 4-way switching turn that lets you control the level of brightness you want from soft ambient light to full brightness. The light can be used with smart outlets if you need control through your smart phone.
The makers offer a one year guarantee for this model. Gives you that extra bit of confidence in the product knowing that you can expect help with any problem that may arise.
Given the large amount of favorable reviews (in excess of 600) you can be sure of good value for money with this unit.
The model is 68 inches high and has a spread of around 18 inches. The metal pole and lamp arms have a pleasing painted finish.
The recommended bulbs are 25W (Maximum) LED candelabra style. The bulbs are not included in the package.
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.
This attractive model has proved a hit with reviews who give it 4 out of 5 stars. Not bad at all for a fitting that doesn't cost a lot of money.
It has nice design touches like the two clear shelves and the ball-chain switches - both of which are also highly practical for daily use. Its compact size means that you can fit it into tight areas of the room.
The unit stands at 68 inches with a width of 14 inches. All three poles are fixed firmly to a 10 inch diameter base. The shelves are also 10 inches in diameter and are useful for display or storage. They also help keeping the pole arrangement straight and firm. The brushed steel poles are complemented by the ivory shades. It works with smart outlets if you
The makers say that you should use either 40W incandescent or 13W CFL bulbs as a maximum. Each requires three bulbs which are not supplied with the package. Each light has its own pull chain control so that you set the light level you want for the room. However, some reviewers suggest that you may not want to use the Trio as your main lighting in any room.
A manufacturer's warranty can be requested from their customer service department.
This is an elegant fitting that would look good in almost any home that values style.
