Lighting choices can make or break a room. Lighting can help set the mood for a room, and be an alternative light source to bright overhead spotlights. But lighting choices — specifically lamp choices — also play an integral role in contributing to a space’s overall aesthetic. Here, the corners of a room are great spots to accent a room by virtue of floor lamps, and can illluminate any nook in your room. For that reason, we are spotlighting three locally-available floor lamps across three price brackets to fit your budget.

Save: Gleam Twist Floor Lamp from Weylandts

Some of the most common kinds of floor lamps are the traditional lamp shaded floor lamps or the Pixar-like task floor lamp. Just because you are on a budget, does not mean you are reserved to consider the cookie cutter floor lamps with white lamp shades. In fact, the Gleam Twist floor lamp from Weylandts currently sits comfortably at R2, 577 as a more affordable unique floor lamp. Also, depending on what bulb you choose, the lamp can lean more bright or dim.

Spend: Oracle Floor Lamp by Elevenpast

Modern floor lamps add a sophisticated touch to a room, especially if you lean to a more minimalist or monochromatic theme. What’s great about a sophisticated floor lamp like this Oracle Floor Lamp from Elevenpast is it combines both form and function. It illuminates a space that’s great for reading, working, or brightening up a dark corner.
