LARGE Steve Cordony (pictured with Belle interior design editor Lucy Mccabe) believes that floor lamps are “not only great design accents for an interior space but functionally they allow great mid-height light in the room. I love using floor lamps either to the side of a sofa or singly next to a corner occasional chair. I also love using floor lamps as bedside table lamps (lineal arm lamps work best), where you can use a similar style table lamp on one side and the floor lamp on the other for asymmetric interest.” Steve’s tips for choosing the right floor lamp for your space? “Take a look at the height of your ceilings and the scale of the furniture the lamp will be placed near. You want both elements to complement each other and work proportionally.” stevecordony.com
