Swing Arm Floor Lamp

Swing Arm Floor LampI’ve been to a good number of homes and offices with floor lamps. They come in varied styles and functionality.

One thing that stands out is how effortlessly they add sophistication and style to a room.

A swing arm floor lamp goes a step further than the usual functionality of floor lamps because you can direct the light where you need it most.

It is great for reading because you can focus the light.

Lamp shades vary in material, shape and color. But the common ones are cone or drum shaped, or drop pharmacy type. They are made of fabric, parchment or metal.

The stand and foot are mostly metal in bronze, brass or black finish.

We don’t have a floor lamp for lack of space. But if you are blessed with ample space, any of these five swing arm floor lamps will add a cozy ambience to your living room or bedroom.

The Robert Abbey brand is one of the established name in lighting design and manufacturing. It prides itself for its timeless design and quality.
