Buying Guide

Shabby chic floor lamps are characterized by their neutral color palette, charming patterns, mixed media embellishments, and distressed wood or metal stands and bases.

If you’re trying to create a shabby chic aesthetic in your bedroom, pick a floor lamp that has a distressed, worn look to coordinate with your bed frame or chest of drawers. The stands are typically constructed of turned or carved wood with a weathered white painted finish.

You should also aim for a color palette that’s relatively neutral with light shades of cream, white, and gray to match your bedding. You could also use the floor lamp to introduce a pop of pastel blue, green, or pink.

Shabby Chic floor lamps can have almost any diameter shade, but shades that are 8” or less in diameter and close to the light bulb may pose a fire hazard if a standard light bulb is used for too long. Make sure to use a lamp shade that is the same size or larger than the one provided by the manufacturer.

Keep in mind that a shabby chic lamp shade that is very large, over 18”-24” in diameter, may overwhelm the space that it's in. Floor lamps that are placed near walkways are easy for people to bump into.

In general, the ideal lamp shade size is a third of the lamp’s height tall and twice as wide as the base. For example, a 60” tall floor with a 12” base should have a lampshade that is 20” tall by 24” wide. Ideally, the lampshade should show a little of the lamp's neck but not the bulb socket.

Lamp shades often feature feminine adornments, such as beads, embroidery, or ruffles. When decorating your bedroom, choose a floor lamp shade with details that reflect the other textiles in your room, like a ruffled curtain valance or a textured bedspread.

Shabby chic floor lamps work well in the corner of a room, but you can also place them in a central position if you want to make them a focal point. Since many of these floor lamps are incredibly ornate and have unique shapes, they can make a fabulous centerpiece in a sunroom or can even be positioned right next to an armchair in the middle of a room for adequate light when reading.

However, if you have dark, unused corners in your space, consider using a decorative shabby chic floor lamp to add intrigue and brighten the area. The addition of a feature lamp in a corner can help draw the eye further, past your furniture pieces, creating the illusion of a bigger living room or bedroom.
