Since its introduction and subsequent rise in popularity over the years, LEDs have changed our point of view on how lighting can be used. In the past, we were forced to stick to using as little light as possible, limiting it only to the essentials.
It was only with the introduction of LEDs, the increase in their availability, improvements to the technology behind them and the increased demand for lower energy options with regards lighting, that a whole world of opportunity opened up to us when it came to illumination and led lit furniture.
Take something like LED string lights or LED strip lights as the perfect example. They are so compact, portable and crucially, flexible that they can be utilized just about everywhere. It doesn’t matter if you are looking to use lighting on plinths, pelmets, bookcases, cabinets or even under cabinets – LEDs make it relatively easy to do it effectively.
If you can have LED lighting along your path, in your patio umbrella and even as a decoration on the interior walls of your home, why not push things one step further?

LED Furniture Buying Guide
As we have seen, the standard for many of these pieces of LED furniture is 16 different colors and a number of different lighting modes and this does not disappoint. The lighting modes include a single color, more colors, slow change, fast change, flickering and melting. Similarly, as a standard for many of these pieces, you can control the lighting with no trouble at all from a remote control.

The gap is being closed between what was normally seen as two separate entities, thanks to the fact that LEDs can be used in just about anything. Furniture and lighting can now be combined in stunning fashion.
Why Would Anyone Want LED Furniture?
That is a good question. At first, the idea may seem a little garish and kinda tacky. However, we are not suggesting that everyone is going to want to have a bright neon red LED sofa in the middle of their quaint and sophisticated living room, and frankly – we don’t blame them.
However, in a child’s room or nightclub, LED furniture in their favorite color will give their room an extra dimension. Not only could it transform their bedroom into the place to be. A place where all their friends, and even their siblings, want to hang out, but as the day draws to a close, it could provide a distinct benefit to you, as parents.
That is, with such bright lights emitting from the furniture in their room, they are less likely to need to rely on the main lighting in their room unless they are doing something important like their homework. Which in turn could mean considerable savings on your electricity bill.
So, What Kind Of LED Furniture Is Available?
Because LED as a lighting technology is already incredibly versatile and can be used in virtually any application; you can find an LED version of just about any type of furniture you can think of.
There are LED tables, LED chairs, LED cube chairs, LED sofas, LED bars, pot plants, LED tables, LED chairs, LED sofas, LED bar stools, LED bars and even items such as LED stand-offs and ice buckets. If you don’t believe us or are intrigued and want to know where you should start looking for LED furniture, you are in the right place. Below we are going to highlight what we feel are some of the best LED furniture available to buy on the market right now.
Time will only tell what will be the next big thing in LED lighting and home furnishing – the future certainly looks like it will be an exciting place and time though!
