Floor Lamp Types

Explore different types of lamps to figure out which one is best for you.

  • In a large living room, you might want an arcing floor lamp. This style curves dramatically from its base to illuminate and offer sculptural interest.
  • A club light looks great in a more compact living room. This is the classic style of uplight, usually diffused with a fabric or glass shade.
  • Try a downlight or a task-style light for a study or to spotlight a tableau within a larger living space. These lights are often associated with table lamps, but they're chic and high-impact in floor lamp versions, too.

Modern Floor Lamps

Modern floor lamps enhance the style of the classic variants by adding an unexpected design feature or flourish.

  • For instance, a tree lamp with multiple bulbs becomes modern when stacked with glass globes instead of traditional downlights.
  • An arc light gets a new angle with a midcentury bent. Look for styles that rely on a retro vision of futurism with triangular silhouettes and slim lines.
  • Reconfigure the tower light with a floor lamp that offers minimalist design and sleek craftsmanship.

Mix-and-Match Styles

You don't have to commit to one style of floor lamps. Have fun mixing and matching looks to highlight different aspects of your furnishings or interior architecture.
