How Will It Help?

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 5W 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

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.


The stunning white finish with nickel accent has until now only been available on our Alex Lights. Available with Nickel flexible arm only.

  • Black body finish with black flexible arm
  • White body finish with nickel flexible arm

Option 4

Carry Handle (heavyweight only)

A real wood handle adds a unique touch to our heavyweight floor lights. The black handle is usually paired with our black or nickel finishes. For a more traditional look and feel, our real wood mahogany-effect carry handle combines well with the brass arm finish.

  • Black carry handle
  • Mahogany carry handle

Option 5

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.
