The Serious Difference

Key Features

Classic Floor Light

  • Classic Floor Light

    Deliberately Narrow Beam

    The light that started it all. The Classic Light is designed to be less intense than our other ranges, with a deliberately narrow beam pattern focusing directly onto your book rather than around the room.

    If you have no eye conditions, are reading books only and looking for a light with a focused beam, the Classic light could be ideal.

    If you are considering reading larger publications as well, you may prefer our Alex Light which has a much wider beam pattern.

  • LED Floor Book Light

    4x More Light on your Page

    Unlike multi-directional lamps, the Serious design focuses all of its colour corrected light on your page, making it many times brighter than traditional lights.

    By comparison with a traditional 60W filament bulb, the Classic Floor Light throws 4x more light onto your page.

    This helps to correct the typical loss of light reaching the retina of two thirds by the time we reach 60 years old.

  • Narrow Beam Book Light

    Energy Efficient LED

    Despite throwing 4x more light than a 60W filament bulb onto your page, the Classic Floor Light uses just 3W of power. Read in comfort without worrying about your energy consumption.

    In addition, the Classic Floor Light also runs cool to the touch, allowing you to read without any heat thrown down on to you. A perfect LED Floor Book Light.

Why Choose Serious?

After a week or so I realised that it was the best and wisest financial outlay I had made since I bought my house in 1967.

Ergonomic Operation

You're In Control

All controls can be found on the head of the Classic Light. To turn your light on or off, simply press the switch situated on the back of the light head.

To operate the optional dimmer (+£30), which is built in to the on/off switch, hold the switch down and the light will begin to cycle through brightness levels. Release the switch when the light output is at your desired level of brightness.

Option 1

Base Type

Heavyweight Models

  • Weight13lbs (6kg)
  • Height60" (152cm)
  • Base Diameter 9.5" (24cm)

The deliberately heavyweight base ensures your light is planted firmly on the table or desk. Built to robust industrial standards. It plants itself firmly for single-hand operation.

Lightweight Models

  • Weight6.5lbs (3kg)
  • Height57" (144cm)
  • Base Diameter8" (20cm)

All the light but half the weight. The lightweight base is designed with a chic look and designed to be easier to move and bend. Perfect when surfaces are limited.

Option 2


  • Black

    The brass base metal is double sprayed and double-baked to produce a durable matte black coating for the fully flexible stay-put arm.

  • Nickel

    A 15-20 micron brushed nickel coating on the brass base metal gives a sharp hi-tech brushed finish.

  • Brass

    The 20-30 micron of zapon-treated brass on brass provides a long-lasting classic look when paired with the real wood mahogany effect handle.

Option 3

Body Finish (lightweight only)

The body finish refers to the colour of the head, base and rigid stem of the lightweight lights.


The sleek black body finish is our most popular option, chosen for its minimalist industrial chic aesthetic. Choose from black, nickel or brass flexible arms with this body finish.

Heritage White

The stunning heritage white body finish is an elegant choice, boasting a delicate off-white hue which blends in perfectly with neutral surroundings. Available with nickel flexible arm only.

  • Black body finish with black flexible arm
  • Heritage white body finish with nickel flexible arm

Option 4

Gemini (heavyweight only)

Our unique two-headed design can be applied as an optional extra (£100) to each Heavyweight Serious Light. Integrating our Daylight Wavelength Technology™ and with individually operated heads, the Gemini feature is a perfect solution for multiple users.

Please Note: The Gemini is not available as cordless. Classic Gemini Lights are non-dimmable.

  • Gemini - All Black
  • Gemini - Heritage white

Option 5

Handle Type (heavyweight only)

Choose between a real wood carry handle available in black or mahogany (black body finish) or heritage white (heritage white body finish) for a unique touch.

Alternatively, the height adjustable option (+£30) allows you to reduce the length of the arm to suit the height of your chair. Adjusts between 133-152cm.

Option 6

Dimmer Function

The dimming function allows for your light to be finely adjusted to your specific needs. Turn down the light intensity when a softer light is required, then with one finger adjust it back up to full brightness when you need more light to get clarity.

Classic Floor Lights have a dimmable option available.
Simply hold down the on/off switch and release when the light output has reached your desired intensity.

Option 7

Cordless (heavyweight only)

This light can be upgraded to cordless operation by adding a rechargeable battery. When fully charged, the light will give up to 7.5 hours of use. A full recharge takes approx. 2 hours.

Perfect for power cuts, you can take your light anywhere, as long as it's dry. Customers often mention that they turn off the main room lights because they rely on their Serious Light.

The technology uses 3W and saves energy, which can be a significant cost at the moment.

Please Note:
The Cordless Classic Light is non-dimmable.
The battery pack and charging plug are included when you select the cordless option. Cordless Classic Lights are non-dimmable.
