Floor Lighting

Mañana Floor Lamp by Design House Stockholm

This lamp has the same sort of feeling as the Made by Eimear Mirror, no? It’s sort of within reach price-wise as well.

A stick figure drawing from one of Marie-Louise Gustafsson’s sketch-books took on the form of a floor lamp, with its body leaning against the wall.

Mañana means tomorrow in Spanish and the lamp’s laid-back, nonchalant attitude totally communicates chill-out, take it easy, stay cool. The lamp is lacquered in graphite grey to emphasize the feeling of a pencil sketch and has a turnable steel plated lampshade with a large globe bulb to give the feeling of a face.

Dimensions: h 66.93″

Light Pillow

Hmm. A pillow shaped light, but take note that it’s not an actual pillow (if the metal frame is anything to go by).

Linas Kutavicius’ Light Pillow is all about warmth and softness. This pillow shaped light can be placed on the floor (or bed), hung on the wall or used as a chandelier. Any way you use it, you’re sure to have a unique lamp.

Removable cover – easy to wash.
Materials: cover:100% cotton, frame: powder-coated metal

Dimensions: 17.75″ x 17.75″ x 8″

Zig-Zag Loft Floor Lamp

I’ve seen this lamp in countless shelter magazines, and each time it strikes me as such a great choice for a reading light next to a comfortable armchair or sofa.

Designed with the ability to twist and turn at the joints without conflict to the wiring, these industrial lamps are not only beautiful but also highly practical. Originally designed in 1950 as the “indestructible” standard for work lamps, Jieldé lamps are now the perfect modern accent for any room. The loft series is Jieldé ‘s industrial strength line based on the very first lamps ever created. Fully adjustable at each joint. 100 watt max A19 incandescent bulb.

6 arms 15.75″ each, Base dia: 13″, Diffuser dia: 6″
Available in 18 colors

Cord Lamp

Simple, affordable, beautiful…truly an excellent floor lamp.

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.)

Stick Lamps

So, I’m breaking the rules again sort of…this is listed as a prototype, but the designer(s) says/say that is available for sale. I’ve no idea about shipping, but seeing as these lamps are incredibly strange and cool, it might just be worth whatever the cost.

Maigrau Luca Light

Take a look at this floor lamp and leaning light from maigrau. Different shade colors available.

The leaning lamp stresses the relationship between light and architecture by its generous gesture. Its orientation to the wall conveys stability and moreover creates an elegant and atmospheric silhouette. The puristic design of the lamp is set in scene by the combination of oiled oak and fabric of the company JAB-Anstoetz.

What an odd size; just as the description says, it could pass as an oversized table lamp or a shorter floor lamp. Fun.

The shade is slightly larger than life giving the lamp its unique character and sense of scale. It’s playful proportions lends itself to many situations – Low level lighting, an oversized table lamp or a child’s standard lamp.

Parentesi Floor Lamp

I’m in the market for a floor lamp for my living room and this guy keeps catching my eye.

The rubber bulb holder swivels in any direction. The Parentesi simply plugs into any wall outlet. The fixture is part of the permanent collection in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Uses 1 X 150W BR40 incandescent bulb (not included).”

Bowling Pin Light

It drives me bonkers when there are almost exact same products at different retailers with different prices and names; is the Bowling Pin Light from UO a Knock-off (um, literally)? Does anybody know?

pictured above: Bowling Pin Light, $38.00,Buy it here.

STRIKE! You’ll be bowled over by the Bowling Pin Light, a fun sculpted lamp that turns off when you knock it over (gently). You might just want to get 12! Imported. Wipe clean. 4.75″w, 15.5″h, 4.75″d

not pictured: Knock-off LIght by Josh Owen, $26.00, Buy it here.

The iconic bowling pin has a story to tell. In it’s standing state, it tells us that it is waiting to be knocked over. When the lamp is on its side, the light is off. When the pin stands up tall, it glows.
