Cosy Reading Lamps

Turning your reading corner into a retreat

A standard desk lamp is by no means the only way to create a cosy area for reading or browsing the internet. In fact, there are lots of options for turning your reading corner and the area around your sofa into a cosy retreat. Contemporary designs — often with an adjustable gooseneck — can transform your favourite place to chill out into an eye-catching, creative space. Or if you prefer reading in bed, there’s more to reading lights than the classic bedside lamp.

It-Piece
Floor Lamp

Take an armchair or a sofa, add a floor lamp and your cosy reading corner is almost perfect. But for an added dose of cosiness just add comfy cushions, snug blankets and warm, dimmable white light. Oh, and your favourite book or tablet of course.

Classic
Table Lamp

What happens when you lay a plush rug or carpet, add an armchair and side table and finish the whole thing off with a delicate table lamp that emits a cosy white light? The perfect atmosphere to immerse yourself in your favourite book.

Light up
The Wall

When your reading corner is lit from behind or above, it makes flicking through your favourite magazines even cosier. Wall-mounted lights not only create a restful atmosphere, they’re a guaranteed attention-grabber when friends call round for coffee.

Indirect
Light

A classic uplight provides pleasantly bright, indirect light into a room and often comes with an extra reading arm light. But times have changed and the days of uplighters with identical designs and features are over. Now they’re available in a range of exciting designs to suit a reading corner of any style or taste.

Cosiness
From Above

Think pendant lights are only suitable for hallways and dining rooms? Then think again, because they’re ideal for bringing beautiful mood lighting to your reading corner too. None more so than in small rooms with limited space, which makes pendant lights more practical and a stylish alternative to a classic floor reading lamp or ceiling light.
