24 Gorgeous Green Lamps That Look Great With Energy-Saving LED Bulbs

by , 08/03/12


Floor lamps offer a great way to light larger rooms, especially when you don’t have built-in ceiling electrical, and they’re more flexible than ceiling lamps since they can be easily moved wherever they’re needed most. For high illumination we recommend fitting floor lamps with 12.5W AmbientLED bulbs (that’s equivalent to a traditional 60W incandescent) or even a 17W AmbientLED bulbs (equivalent to 75W incandescents) for maximum brightness.

Meridian Floor Lamp by Lights Up! – $358

The Lights Up! Meridian Floor Lamp is an elegant design that stands straight up and illuminates any room with an omnidirectional pillar of light. Designed by Rachel Simon, the lamp is customizable with 100% recycled PED fabrics, which means you can dress it up in colors and patterns if the standard white linen model is too stark for your style. The Meridian Floor lamp is a great match for any A-shape LED bulb – for high illumination we recommend a Philips 17W AmbientLED light bulb.

    Huge Greypants fan, but it may have to do with the fact that they studied architecture. I’m biased.
