Floor Lighting

Naughty Floor Lamp

This is one stupendous (albeit expensive) floor lamp.

“Naughty, as in pine, makes each lamp an individual work of art. Sundayland starts out with the highest quality of California grown knotty pine available, hand turning the base and stem, naturally bringing out the character and sheen of the wood. For the shade, pine is taken to a whole new level, near transparent, then backed with an invisible polyurethane. Light glows through the grain of the wood, knots and all, illuminating any environment.”

Dimensions: 5’9″ Height

Wan Floor Lamp by Naoto Fukasawa

This looks like a good choice for adding just the right amount of ambient light to a room.

‘Translated as “bowl” in Japanese, the Wan delicately holds its light in a beautifully curved shell. Encased in its walls are sand-like iron particles, allowing you to direct the angle of light by simply shifting the weight of the bowl. More lovely than its shape however is its glow, as its thick rim softens the contours of the light to a subtle, diffused hue.’

Designer: Naoto Fukasawa
Materials: Polycarbonate, Aluminum
Available in silver or white with a choice of flood or narrow light distribution.
13″ dia. x 8″H

Honey Lamps by Donegani and Lauda

This collection of Honey Lamps is on sale (almost half off).

‘This is a system of light elements built around diffused light, designed on a modular transparent structure, of theoretically unlimited extension, like “Brancusi’s Endless” column. The texture of the triangular components, in a honey comb structure and micro-prismatic, directs the distribution of the light flow through the interior of the structure. The system is composed of three basic components, assembled together in a clip-on process (the elements are a triangle as diffuser, a square as frame and a crown as the cover) as well as the rod iron legs for the base. The assembly operations, which are extremely simple and require no additional tools, are left to the user. By using the components available in the system, it is possible within the required dimensions, to choose from several lamp alternatives.’

Innermost Asteroid Lamp

I’m really liking this faceted lamp, especially because it can function as table or floor lighting- take your pick.

“An angular plastic encased light, the Asteroid is a unique floor, or table light, designed with 24 facets — each with its own unique geometry. The lamp can be placed on several of the facets, to display as an individual, unique piece, as you like.”

Materials: Matte white plastic.

Bauhaus Arc & Twiggy Floor Lamp

While these two floor lamps are quite similar in idea, they are entirely different in how the design is actually executed. For those on a budget, the Bauhaus (shown at top) will make do just fine, and the extra bells and whistles that the Twiggy (at bottom) sports is not quite worth the extra $1800. But, those of you that appreciate the finer things, the Twiggy is impressive in quality and detail- take a look at its credentials and see which one might fit you best.

Bauhaus Arc Floor Lamp:
“Arc de triomphe in top to bottom all metal, all white. Pedestal iron base rises off-center, then swoops to high light over seating, bed, dining. Shade is a major surprise in smooth aluminum; exposed butterfly nut (white [or olivine] of course) pivots shade to direct the beam. On/off foot switch.”

59″Wx15.25″Dx80″H, $199.00, Buy it here.

Twiggy Floor Lamp:
“The Twiggy is characterized by a thin, elegant and sophisticated design. Flexibility is the word for Twiggy; flexibility of the material which defines the ample and essential curve of the arm that carries the light source far from the base, in the possibility of adjusting the height of the shade thanks to a system of counterweights, and in the possibility of adjusting the length of the arm with a set of extensions (sold separately).”

Twiggy is available in four color choices: red, black, white or yellow. Made from a compound material with a fiberglass base. Bottom diffuser shields direct view of lamps.

Dimensions 67″L X 77″ – 85″H; 18″D shade, $2,022.00, Buy it here.

Tonka Lamp

Here’s a cool little table (or floor) lamp. I like how the silver laminate and the exposed edges play with the traditional idea of a lamp silhouette.

“The crisp, clean lines of the Tonka lamp bring an elegant simplicity to your contemporary decor. Available as a table or floor lamp, it is an ideal choice for your bedside or your favorite corner.”

Waren Floor Lamp

This floor lamp is the perfect size for small spaces- it does the job without taking up a whole lot of visual space. And, it’s under $100, which means it’s the perfect choice.

“Classic design moves light-years ahead in a bright new polished nickel finish. Head and arm rotate to direct light at any angle. Adjusting handle stays cool.”

Bauhaus Floor Lamp

We’ve posted the Bauhaus Table Lamp, and now there’s a floor lamp version to accompany it. Such a good price…

“The form is classic modern, but the execution’s a total rethink in top to bottom all metal, all white. Pedestal iron base rises clean, straightforward. Shade is a major surprise in handmade smooth aluminum. Un-color is a smashing high-gloss whiteout. Clear cord disappears nicely.”

Spotlight Floor Lamp

Not too long ago we posted the Photography Floor Lamp, and I’d say this one is comparable- perhaps this one has slightly more of a modern feel…

“15″ tripod base keeps things steady as chrome-plated lamp telescopes from 44″ to 61″ high. Especially effective in multiples. Uses one 75-watt bulb, not included. Sleek anodized aluminum shade. 98″-long cord. The on/off switch is located on the spotlight head.”

Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp

I love the scale of this floor lamp.

“The Tolomeo design begins with a heavy base and ends with a matte anodized aluminum diffuser that swivels 360 degrees and can be easily turned with a cool-to-the-touch steel handle. In between, the lamp’s dual-arm body adjusts by loosening and tightening the central and bottom joints, and steel tension cables provide infinite positions in which the lamp can be held. The Mega comes with a 17″ parchment shade that reaches far over a sofa or bed.”
