Floor Pendant Lamp For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are many versions of the ideal floor pendant lamp for your home. Each floor pendant lamp for sale was constructed with extraordinary care, often using metal, brass and glass. Find 35 options for an antique or vintage floor pendant lamp now, or shop our selection of 43 modern versions for a more contemporary example of this long-cherished piece. You’ve searched high and low for the perfect floor pendant lamp — we have versions that date back to the 20th Century alongside those produced as recently as the 21st Century are available. When you’re browsing for the right floor pendant lamp, those designed in Mid-Century Modern, Modern and Art Deco styles are of considerable interest. A well-made floor pendant lamp has long been a part of the offerings for many furniture designers and manufacturers, but those produced by Astep, Vittoriano Vigano and Mattia Biagi are consistently popular.

How Much is a Floor Pendant Lamp?

The average selling price for a floor pendant lamp at 1stDibs is $2,546, while they’re typically $200 on the low end and $19,652 for the highest priced.

Finding the Right Lighting for You

The right table lamp, outwardly sculptural chandelier or understated wall pendant can work wonders for your home. While we’re indebted to thinkers like Thomas Edison for critically important advancements in lighting and electricity, we’re still finding new ways to customize illumination to fit our personal spaces all these years later. A wide range of antique and vintage lighting can be found on 1stDibs.

Today, lighting designers like the self-taught Bec Brittain have used the flexible structure of LEDs to craft glamorous solutions by working with what is typically considered a harsh lighting source. By integrating glass and mirrors, reflection can be used to soften the glow from LEDs and warmly welcome light into any space.

Although contemporary innovators continue to impress, some of the classics can’t be beat. 

Just as gazing at the stars allows you to glimpse the universe’s past, vintage chandeliers like those designed by Gino Sarfatti and J. & L. Lobmeyr, for example, put on a similarly stunning show, each with a rich story to tell.

As dazzling as it is, the Arco lamp, on the other hand, prioritizes functionality — it’s wholly mobile, no drilling required. Designed in 1962 by architect-product designers Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, the piece takes the traditional form of a streetlamp and creates an elegant, arching floor fixture for at-home use.

There is no shortage of modernist lighting similarly prized by collectors and casual enthusiasts alike — there are Art Deco table lamps created in a universally appreciated style, the Tripod floor lamp by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Greta Magnusson Grossman's sleek and minimalist Grasshopper lamps and, of course, the wealth of mid-century experimental lighting that emerged from Italian artisans at Arredoluce, FLOS and many more are hallmarks in illumination innovation

With decades of design evolution behind it, home lighting is no longer just practical. Crystalline shaping by designers like Gabriel Scott turns every lighting apparatus into a luxury accessory. A new installation doesn’t merely showcase a space; carefully chosen ceiling lights, table lamps and floor lamps can create a mood, spotlight a favorite piece or highlight your unique personality.

The sparkle that your space has been missing is waiting for you amid the growing collection of antique, vintage and contemporary lighting for sale on 1stDibs.

Questions About Floor Pendant Lamp
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2024
    A floor lamp is a tall standing lamp used to illuminate a space. A floor lamp should typically be between 58 and 64 inches tall. The bottom of the fixture's shade should be slightly below or approximately at the eye level of a person sitting nearby. This will help your guests avoid the lamp's glare.

    In addition to illuminating large spaces, floor lamps can light specific seating areas and serve as task lighting (use a taller floor lamp if you wish to keep a fair amount of distance between the fixture and your seating). Visual artists and industrial designers have a penchant for floor lamps, possibly because they’re so often a clever marriage of design and the functions of lighting. A good floor lamp can change the mood of any room while adding a touch of elegance to your entire space.

    Find antique and vintage floor lamps, table lamps and other lighting on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 28, 2021

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021

    Find antique and vintage floor lamps, table lamps and other lighting on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 12, 2021
    A good bright floor lamp depends on various factors such as other light sources in the room, the number of lumens required, and so on. When it comes to floor lamps, a good rule of thumb is that a sitting room or bedroom needs 10 to 20 lumens per square foot, while a bathroom or kitchen requires 70 to 80 lumens per square foot. On 1stDibs, find a range of antique and vintage floor lamps.

    To choose an arc floor lamp, consider the layout of the room and the space available to ensure that the fixture you select can reach over your furniture and fit in the area. Also, think about the quality of light that you prefer. Lamps with fabric and frosted glass shades will usually provide softer illumination than ones with exposed bulbs. Find a selection of arc floor lamps on 1stDibs.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    There are many different ways to tell if a table lamp is vintage. Your best option is to look for a manufacturer label that will give you information on the designer, the date, serial number and other information that you can then Google. It’s also a good idea to look at the condition of the lamp to see what shape it’s in and if it has all of its original pieces. Shop a large collection of vintage table lamps from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 12, 2021
    The best reading floor lamp is a matter of preference. Your lamp should be at eye level with an adjustable head and neck. It should also be a good fit with respect to the shape of the living room, the décor and furniture style. On 1stDibs, shop a range of antique and vintage floor lamps.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 31, 2023
    The main parts of a floor lamp are called the body, neck, socket harp and shade. A lamp body is the decorative portion of the lamp made from wood, metal, porcelain or another material, and the neck travels from the body to the socket where you install a bulb. On floor lamps with shades, the shade is the covering over the bulb, while the harp is the frame that holds the shade in place. Shop a collection of floor lamps on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 31, 2023
    How tall an arc lamp should be depends on the height of your furniture. The lamp needs to be able to reach over the piece and allow enough clearance for you to sit comfortably. Generally, arc lamps are 60 to 82 inches tall. Find a range of arc lamps on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
