Best floor lamps: stylish designs to light up your space


The Great Light is an enemy to many. Terrifying and unflattering, we’d go almost every effort not to turn it on, even if that meant stumbling around in the gloom, using only our phone’s flashlight to light the way.

But there is another way to bring a warm ambience into a home – with a floor lamp.

Choose the right freestanding design and you will find that they are both a way to add a softer light to your home and an interesting decorative piece in their own right.

Position them in your favorite corner and sit bathed in warm light while you watch your TV or lose yourself in your latest novel. They are ideal for almost any room in the house: living room, bedroom, study, kitchen or hallway.

We’ve rounded up the most beautiful designs for you below to make your shopping that much easier.
