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.”


Update: This item is no longer available through original retailer. (10/30/09)

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.”

H 58-131.5″ Base Diameter 13″

Gus Lightstick

We’ve posted this before (Gus Lightstick), but it’s 60% off (!) here…

Dioscuri by Artemide

These are so often seen in modern interiors some would say they’re a staple for home furnishings. I think they give off such a nice glow.

Photography Floor Lamp

For just under $100, this floor lamp is pretty decent. I like the ’40s feeling to it, as it would add a little bit of antiquity to a room.

“Retake of a 1940s studio source light, scaled anew for residential sets. Adjustable-angle brushed metal head angles light easy on the eyes with a frosted glass diffuser. Metal pole on raised X-base adjusts in height 47″ to 67″. Hardware included.”

Purchase Information:

No longer available.


This lamp seems to be a slight variation on the ubiquitous globe light. Might be just enough detail to add a little more ‘oomph’ to your living or sleeping area.

“Table or floor lamp made of a white acrylic sphere with three elliptical laser cut holes and chromed metal structure.”

Division Floor Lamp

I think this lamp qualifies as timeless (meaning 20 years from now it’ll look just as good)…

Division is available in either bright polished or brushed aluminum both with a light charcoal colored concrete base.

Measures 63″h x 10″d in the upper position, 56.7″h in lower

Kozom Light

This is something different. If you’ve got a sparse corner or a section of floor to dedicate to a light, then you might consider this Kozom light by designer Alexandre Berthiaume. It adds a special sort of atmosphere- kind of a cross between a fun piece and an art-like ambience that isn’t easy to come by. Each piece is hand-made from inflated vinyl balls.

17″ x 20″ x 14″

Each light comes with four reconfiguarable modules of the same color, and one cord, which can power up to 12 modules. Additional sets of four modules of one color are available separately.”
