Unique floor lamps for your home

Our comprehensive inventory of all things floor lamps — they are unique, snazzy and drop-dead gorgeous.

An empty corner, a bland aesthetic, depravity of colour — are these underscoring the vibe of your room? What is it that a floor lamp cannot do? It fulfils two purposes in any room — makes a statement and provides light, of course. The staid one pole lamps are so passe now. Homeowners like you want, need and demand elements that keep up with their adventurous personalities. Unique floor lamps for your home are just what the doctor (interior designer, in this case) ordered!

This unassuming interior influencer kindles our hearts as much as our homes. Floor lamps can transition smoothly between being objet d’art and the dependable workhorses of the world of lights. Take a look at our expert-curated collection and find these styles of floor lamps online as well as offline.

Circle Of Light With Floor Lamps

Going for a modern, contemporary aesthetic? Lamps with unique shapes and streamlined details look great as living room floor lamps. Keep the area free from too many embellishments to not overwhelm the room.

The Classic Tripod Floor Lamp For An Elegant Look

Easy to place anywhere, a tripod floor lamp is a classic for a reason. But you don’t have to stick to the usual choices. This three-legged monster can wear different hats, so go bold with it.

Good Things Come In Pairs And So Do Floor Lamps

Keeping a set of identical or mismatched floor lamps on either side of the room helps create a bracketed style. Drive out any other decor element from the room and pair the lamps with simple plants to achieve a cohesive and exciting style.

A Corner Floor Lamp That Has As Much Style As Substance

You don’t have to compromise on substance when aiming for style. Adding a pop of colour or using an interesting lampshade can transform a run-of-the-mill lamp into a striking decor piece for an arty living room.

Visual Direction From Floor Lamps

The whole objective of task lighting is to create an illuminated spot for better activity accomplishment. Yes, task lighting floor lamps motivate our eyes towards the direction of their light, but they also add an element of refined architectural taste. These work best behind furniture to avoid crowding.

Tasteful Floor Lamps In The Bedroom

There are alternatives to the tried and tested bedside lamp. Floor lamps are equally versatile in the bedroom space as in the living area. Prop them in a corner to light up the entire room. Floor uplighters also work well in this area.

Floor Lamps Are a Reader’s Best Friend

The most significant upside of using floor lamps? They free up space from the side tables or the need for them. If your couch or reading chair is more straightforward, go for a statement floor lamp and vice versa.

Desk Goals With A Floor Lamp

You don’t have to stick to the standard study table lamp for your workspace. Invest in an arc floor lamp or go for a modern-designed beauty. You can use the freed up surface area on the desk for storing more desk decor items.

The Last Word On Unique Floor Lamps

Not all floor lamps need to be high and mighty. A subtle, mid-sized or small floor lamp will add warmth and style to your room. Plus, using elements of different heights will grip the visuals.
