Modern and designer floor lamps take their inspiration from a number of sources, including industrial pieces. The numerous tripod designs are proof of that, as are the arc lamps powerful enough to illuminate a large space. For areas that require targeted lighting effects, you can easily use anglepoise floor lamps that will bend and elongate to match your exact needs.
Our contemporary styles, from brands such as The Orchard and Neofurn, include unique pieces that resemble beautiful creatures when lit. Wooden floor lamps, though not as elaborately designed, can be equally lovely and are perfect to use in any room with an understated, natural style. A black floor lamp with a multi-hued shade can be striking when used in a minimalist setting, as will one created in shades of red.
