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…

“A single bulb sits within a stainless steel frame while the top has a hidden bracket to attach to the wall. Its genius is in its simplicity.”

Size: 80″h x 5.5″w x 5.5d”

Update: No longer available from original retailer at discounted price, fyi.

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.”

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.

“The minimalistic design features a handblown glass globe supported by a hidden base. Adjust the lighting level with the on/off/dim switch on the cord.”

Large: Diameter 17 in.
Medium: Diameter 14 in.
Mini: Diameter 5.5 in.
Small: Diameter 10 in.

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.

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″
