I know, I know, it’s that time of year when we all start talking about lighting, and cosy corners. But as it gets dark and cold outside, getting your lighting right inside makes sure you have that welcoming, relaxing space to come home to. I’m not suggesting you get straight on the phone to your electrician either; there are so many plug-in options to play with.

So, today it’s floor lamps. Not only are they an easy way to layer your lighting they also allow you to add height to your design scheme, zone a space or introduce another texture. Make a statement or keep it subtle, it’s up to you.

Here are some of my favourites for you to have a look at…

#1 Strikingly contemporary and, I know, a bit more of an investment but just look at it! Definitely one to make a statement with. Beat Floor Lamp, £750 from Tom Dixon

#2 Create a cheerful corner with this chartreuse Olivia floor lamp, £149 from Made.com

#3 I adore the range of lighting from Pooky, and this is one of my favourites. Stunningly elegant with the most enviable of green shades. Or swap in a different colour shade to match your scheme. Trafalgar Floor Lamp, £450 (depending on shade) from Pooky

#4 Simple, sleek and (quite frankly) a bit of a stunner. Overarching lamp, £299 from West Elm

#5 Lighting doesn’t need to be complicated. Keep it simple with this Junction lamp, £199 from Heals

#6 I try to limit the times I use the same product in a design, but I haven’t been able to resist using this a couple of times. Elegant and dramatic it creates a fabulous light and makes a statement without being overpowering. Sand Black Floor lamp, £199 from Barker & Stonehouse
