Floor Lighting

L_MP floor lamp

An incredibly affordable-yet-stylish floor lamp is not something you come across everyday, yet here we are, checking out this lamp by A/R Studio at CB2 for $149. That’s right, it’s on sale from $200, and if you need extra lighting, it’s definitely worth considering. Composed of a solid white oak frame, cocoa linen shade and red cloth cord, which adjusts to raise or lower the shade.

Licht Lights

Back in November, Supermarket asked us to pick a few things (see Guest curator: Better Living Through Design) and these lamps from Soo Kwon not only made the list but are still stuck in my head. With such a high-design look, it’s amazing that they have such an affordable price tag.

Facet Lamps

For his series of Facet Lamps, designer Brendan Ravenhill drew inspiration from industrial light fixtures. Cleverly though, he forgoes manufacturing processes such as spun metal or ceramics that are traditionally used to create these lamps, and utilized an array of cut and bent sheet metal, creating a geometric pattern that is uniquely modern, yet still evokes the spirit of the original industrial shades. I don’t know if the light shining through at the bends was intentional or a byproduct of manufacture, but either way I love it.

Watt Table and Floor Lamp

I’m steadily making my way through featuring the various new lamps from Blu Dot’s collection, and I have to say I’m mightily impressed with the offerings. This Watt Table and Floor lamp are weirdly futuristic, but in an entirely good way. The steel panels angled together look like some child’s drawing of an alien ship, or a gross exaggeration of a pixellated spider with only 5 legs. Or a simple steel lamp entitled ‘Watt’. Nonsense aside, they’re cool looking and would give an edgy sort of atmosphere to a room.

Floor lamp, (inches) 44.75h x 21w, $299.00

Tom Dixon Copper Blow Shade Lamp

Loop Light by Voon Wong and Benson Saw

Something about this light looks like sex incarnate. Maybe it’s the sleek stainless steel finish or maybe it’s because it reminds me of that Hussein Chalayan hat – the one that sucks the girl’s dress up into it. See the video at Style.com and skip to 4:24. I’m no male chauvinist, but some people might consider that better living through design.

Also available in nickel-painted steel.

Disposable Lighting by Stuart Haygarth

I hoped you saved those plastic wine and champagne glasses from your holiday celebrations…Stuart Haygarth might need them to create his next masterpiece after his limited-edition light fixtures are all sold out. Katie posted his work a while back, but this particular floor light stood out to me. Standing at approximately 80 inches tall and made of 416 disposable wine glasses, you could say this piece is a tall toast to a properous new year.

Plastic, fluorescent bulb
200cm x 50cm

Happy Lamp by VaughShannon

Ah, yes, the forever issue of finding/reaching the switch for the table/floor lamp. This lamp solves that nicely with a convenient switch located at just the right height, no stretching or bending necessary. Plus, the jolt of color might be a great accent for an otherwise bland color scheme.

The Happy Lamp has been designed to offer a more convenient and ergonomic location for the lighting controls. The final design, which was led purely by function, takes on an anthropomorphic form, which in turn creates his charming personality.

Available direct from VaughShannon.

Chester Light (Pendant and Floor)

Holy. Someone needs to make this in porcelain so the price can be a bit more approachable, but man, for those of us that like the traditional button tufting found in the ubiquitous Chesterfield sofas, it’s a lovely sight to behold. (Dare I say this light is even ‘cute’?)

Chester designed by Bert furthermore Dennis for Belgian Dark is available as pendant and floor lamp, and refers to the famous Chesterfield furniture.
Designed for modern environments such as bars or lounges or why not at home next to chesterfield sofa.

Cord Lamp by Design House Stockholm (personal review)

Yes, this has been posted before, but I recently bought one for myself, so I had to share a pic of it in my home (shown right, and a couple of extra pics here). I’m quite pleased with the useful dimmer switch, and of course there’s no worries as to the messy cord situation. It has my two thumbs up along with a personal stamp of approval.

From a snake nest of winding cords, this lamp shoots straight up and stands tall on its own. Surprising the eye by challenging the unexpected, the Cord Light is simple, yet characteristic. The cord, one of the most disturbing decorating details has been made useful. The piece is made out of a standard bulb, textile cord and steel tube.

Textile cord, H 130 cm (51.2″) Bulb included (GLOBE opal 40 W.)

Take a look at this Praying Mantis inspired floor lamp by Jonathan Adler. I like the rattan on the white metal frame, especially with the slightly strange angled base.
