Sleepy floor lamps are the new homeware item you’ll want to add to your wish lists

Posted by for Homeware

The droopier the better with these chic new floor lamps – let us show you the styles that are on everyone’s Instagram feeds right now. 

Whether you want to create some mood lighting for your lounge, set-up the perfect nook as a reading corner or you’re just obsessed with different lamps (trust me, it’s a thing), I’ve found a style for you. As a fashion editor, a lot of the accounts I follow are fashion related. But with a lot of outfit posts been indoors recently, I’ve being eyeing up interiors, too. So much so I’ve ended up following more and more home accounts. On my daily scroll, I’ve noticed a certain floor lamp in the homes of some of the most stylish women. They’re oversized, they overhang and they look like they’ve nodded off: welcome, the sleepy floor lamps – this is what I’m coining them anyway.

The official name if you want to search for them online is an ‘arc’, ‘overreached’ or ‘arched’ lamp. But I prefer to think of them as the floor lamp that’s nodded off – like you do when you put on a film past 9pm – and it’s made me like them even more.

Interior designer Jana shows off her chic gold, cream and marble base style – it looks perfect in the minimalist setting with neutral hues. I’ve found a similar style at new UK lighting brand Lights and Lamps below. 

Fashion influencer Melissa has a chrome and cream sleepy floor lamp that goes perfectly in her monochrome home. It’s all about the styles that droop over your furniture and create an arched silhouette. I’ve found the best styles to add to your living rooms – shop my top-seven arc floor lamps below.
