When it comes to making sure your room lives up to its full potential, there’s one key ingredient we often forget: lighting. Without the proper illumination (either natural or artificial), a room’s design can fall flat and the whole space can feel cold and unwelcoming. Not to mention, no one likes feeling like they’re living in a cave.
This is especially true in smaller spaces, which often boast less room to post up a table lamp or floor lamp to help brighten an empty corner. However, just because your home is small doesn’t mean you should skimp on lighting — it just comes down to finding the right piece that boasts a small footprint and packs a punch when it comes to enlivening a room.
Enter: this futuristic floor lamp from Los Angeles-based company Brightech. Sculpted in a gentle swirl and reaching nearly 4′ tall, this lighting fixture is just the piece your small space needs to totally come alive. While we’re the first to admit it may not vibe with everyone’s style, this sculptural piece is a great option if you prefer modern, industrial, or even minimalistic design.
Made from metal and LED lights, the oversized piece delivers the perfect dose of light for your space, with three different settings you can easily dim with just the touch of your foot. The floor lamp’s LED light is meant to last up to 20,000 hours (that’s over 20 years), so you will virtually never have to worry about replacing it. And since it doesn’t generate heat, this light is a great option even in rooms that need a bit more care, like a playroom or nursery.
Here’s the best part: The weighted base of this lamp is just 6″ wide, so it takes up practically zero precious floor space. That means you can easily find a spot for this slim showpiece alongside your couch or tucked into the corner of your dark apartment kitchen. Says one reviewer, “I wanted a bright LED light for my bedroom, which has no light fixtures. I love the design of this lamp and it is very bright (I have it on the brightest setting). I really like the way it looks — it was simple to put together and it works with the light switch in the room and the price was right.” Other happy buyers note that the light lends an unexpectedly sexy vibe to their space (we can totally see it) and is so powerful that they often don’t even need to have it on the highest setting.
Right now, you can snag this contemporary pole lamp on sale for $75, making it an ideal way to add a bit more of a glow to your space without breaking the bank. Have a penchant for drama? Snag two to flank your bed, desk, or fireplace — your friends might just think they’re at the MoMA.
