A great, well-placed lamp can dramatically alter how a room looks and feels. So, if your living roomâ€™s only light source is the generic ceiling lamp that came with your place, itâ€™s time to shed some light on your mancave. Most living areas do best with at least three different sources of light: a floor lamp for directed light, a ceiling lamp for overall illumination, and accent lighting to set the mood. Today we focus on floor lamps. We recommend…
The IKEA Kulla lamp is industrial yet polished. A major selling point, besides the reasonable price, is that it comes with a dimmer. Also available in white.
This Target lamp successfully nods at the bourgeoning tripod furniture movement. Its drum lampshade should diffuse light nicely. $124.99.
Form and function are lovingly married on this wooden CB2 lamp. The solid oak frame suspends the shade via a red cloth cord, which adjusts for height.
This modern Hudson lamp from Chiasso would be a great accent to a modern couch. The base is real marble! $198.
Also from Chiasso, this spotlight floor lamp would liven up an otherwise boring corner and costs much less than other models on the market. Make sure to get a low-watt bulb, though, so that you donâ€™t feel like youâ€™re being interrogated from the couch.
