A high-quality reading light is so important if you’re the kind of person who loves to cuddle up with a good book on cold winters evening. A strong, clear source of light is important to reading. This is because poor lighting can leave you feeling uncomfortable, causing headaches and can even damage your eyesight in the long run. So that’s why we’re here to let you know how to choose the best reading light.
When choosing your perfect reading light, the one big consideration you need to think about is where you’re going to position it. Think about where you do most of your reading. You will need a reading light that comes from behind, illuminates the page and doesn’t cast any shadows.
It’s all about being comfortable
Making it a tall order
Tall floor standing lamps are perfect for a living room reading light. Their height offers you a good coverage of light to read under. Franklite’s Flex Arm floor lamp is simple but allows you to position it directly over your book without casting shadows. This reading light has a subtle elegance to it that is smart and dignified, making it the perfect fit for many types of décor.
For something a bit different, try the Där Hahn floor lamp. With a unique shape it’s easy to imagine this reading light in a more contemporary home. The light will go with leather furniture. So all you have to do is sit back, relax and get sucked into the pages of the latest bestselling novel.
Do you want to relax in more ambient lighting without damaging your eyes? Then the Där Oundle reading light is a stylish uplighter and a reading light rolled into one. The upright part of the light creates a cosy environment, and the addition of the ‘child’ reading light helps you read without having to strain your eyes.
