Floor lamps are--stay with us now--lamps that sit on the floor. They are free-standing, meaning that they do not require attachment to any surface for support, and plug-in to maximize your ability to adjust your lighting plan to your needs.
Within those design parameters, however, the range of floor lights is nearly endless. Start simple with clean and contemporary designs like Neo from Nemo, Origine from Davide Groppi, or one of Stickbulb's lithe and surprising LED floor light designs. If you want to introduce a column of illumination into your living room, lobby, or office, try Kele 2 Fluo floor light from B.lux, Elise from Pablo, or Gea from a by arturo alvarez.
Torchiere lamps such as GATPAC from Santa & Cole mimic the lighting effect of torches by directing light upwards, to splash back from the wall and ceiling. Meanwhile, floor-level floor lights such as Denglong P GR from Parachilna or one of Karman's Via Lattea lights can add a touch of drama to your lighting plan.
If a stylish yet functional reading lamp is what you seek, try Lightoread P from Parachilna or B.lux's clean and classic Blux System floor lamp. If you want a floor light you can take with you, Giulietta BE floor light from Catellani & Smith is a battery-powered wonder, as are Contardi's Muse Battery and Muse Lantern Battery.
