The Best Industrial Floor Lamps to Brighten Your Space
It’s easy to feel challenged when choosing an industrial-style floor lamp. Finding a piece that you actually like can be a daunting task due to the oversaturation of the market with drab, contemporary lamps. However, there are more options out there than meet the eye. From metal to concrete and from modern to vintage, there are plenty of floor lamps to fit your tastes. A metal lamp would look great in a study, surrounded by books. A lamp made of concrete may look best in a wide open space, where its stoicism can be fully appreciated. Whatever your need, Nest Casa promises: there is an industrial floor lamp for you.
Metal Floor Lamps
Something about metal lamps, in particular, makes them useful for adding warmth to a room. The juxtaposition of the cold metal against the warm light can add a comforting feeling—even if the space isn’t traditionally cozy. For this reason, metal lamps make wonderful additions to sitting rooms or libraries. This Lemieux et Cie Meudon lamp from Lulu and Georgia is a bronze-toned twist on a classic. Meanwhile, the Koleman lamp from Jonathan Adler was made for curling up with a good book.
Vintage Floor Lamps
If you’re on the hunt for a lamp that goes perfectly with your mid-century modern décor, you may want to turn to the vintage market. The 1970s is a great decade to start in, as most pieces are unique but not too weathered by time. Fitted with a marble base, this two-armed arc lamp from Chairish has an animated quality about it that almost brings it to life. While this post-modern lamp may be from Italy, it’s how it echoes Memphis style in metal and perspex that makes it so eye-catching.
Tripod Floor Lamps
Tripod lamps are able to both structurally and aesthetically support heavier tops, making them perfect for those who are looking for a statement from their lamps. The Superloon Floor Lamp, created by FLOS, is shadeless, spins on an axis, and radiates diffused light like a moon that’s been lassoed. Similarly, the brass-finished Baldwyn lamp from Pottery Barn has an articulating metal hood that can be positioned to your liking. Finally, while Rich Brilliant Willing’s Excel Floor Lamp isn’t adjustable like the others in this category, its sculptural qualities still perform, giving a distinctive effect.
Concrete and Stone Floor Lamps
You might look at concrete and stone lamps if you’re searching for something out of the ordinary. A concrete piece like this one by Bentu Design can bring a sense of solidity to a room—particularly. since the matte material provides contrast against anything metallic. Marble is commonly used as a base for lamps, as it is in this Totem Suitcase Floor Lamp by Vincenzo Bafunno. Here, each cut of mable is unique.
Wood Floor Lamps
Wood is not a substance often used for the creation of lamps. However, its flexible nature makes it a particularly effective crafting material. In fact, a wooden lamp has the capacity to be as imposing or as modest as you make it, whether you want a bold centerpiece or a versatile accent. Giorgio Cubeddu’s Monolite Three-Light Sculpture is a wonderful example of an eye-catching wooden lamp. Its highly unconventional structure is sure to fascinate anyone nearby.
The Ultimate Floor Lamps
Maybe none of the aforementioned lamps appeal to you. Perhaps, they’re too vintage, too easily accessible, or just not right. Don’t let that discourage you. We’ve unearthed two lamps that are sure to wow even the most discerning of interior designers.
The Chandelier lamp by Dan Yeffet for Collection Particulière is described as a “three-dimensional trompe l’œil”—and it’s easy to see why, once it’s turned on and its light is radiating in all directions from each of the 11 glass diffusers. It’s equally decorative when turned off; a black and gold marble base and brushed brass frame evoke a sculptural feel. Meanwhile, the Floor Lamp Lune (created by the minds at Ecart International) takes a good, timeless design and makes it sensational.
