At Ethan Allen, we have numerous lighting options in an array of materials, sizes, and styles. For tips on choosing, hanging, plus other inspiration—read on and be enlightened!

floor lamps

Stately structures that fill the tall order of brightening or softening the mood, creating atmosphere in places where other lamps may not fit.

Mastering task lighting

When you need all of your workspace for your work, a floor lamp with an adjustable arm, like our Jesse Task Floor Lamp, can take the place of a desktop version.

Maxing your minimal space

No room for a full-sized end table? No worries! Just slide a slim floor lamp, like our Denten Floor Lamp, next to a small accent table and—voila—you’ve got light and a space to place your drink.

table lamps

Dynamic elements that keep perfect company next to a chair, or atop a desk. They throw light on any subject with style.

Following the footprints

With everyone home and more of their things to go around, your side tables have most likely become the new household catchalls. Searching for a table lamp based on its footprint will help you find the size that works harder to free up your space.

Circle gets the square

The shape of your table lamp also plays a role in how much space it takes. Round-based lamps need a little more space and are great for freestanding end tables, while Rectangular- and square-based lamps are perfect for corners, consoles—basically anywhere a wall is nearby.

CHANDELIERS & PENDANTS

Overhead lighting that is unexpectedly transitional, as they can be hung to complement any style in practically every room.

A BIT about BULBS

Choosing LED bulbs as alternatives

We suggest using long-lasting LED bulbs to help save energy, reduce the number of changes needed, and lessen the amount of waste going into landfills.

DID YOU KNOW: LED bulbs are available in all the same shapes and sizes as regular bulbs, including 3-way and dimmable options! Choose simple, frosted LED bulbs for anywhere use, and those with detailed, decorative filaments to add style to chandeliers and pendants.

turn on the technology

The same design technology you use to select and place furniture and rugs in a realistic virtual floor plan can also be used with our lighting! Explore styles, plot out positioning and watch your vision come to light.
