Finding the Right floor-lamps for You

The modern floor lamp is an evolution of torchères — tall floor candelabras that originated in France as a revolutionary development in lighting homes toward the end of the 17th century. Owing to the advent of electricity and the introduction of new materials as a part of lighting design, floor lamps have taken on new forms and configurations over the years. 

In the early 1920s, Art Deco lighting artisans worked with dark woods and modern metals, introducing unique designs that still inspire the look of modern floor lamps developed by contemporary firms such as Luxxu

Popular mid-century floor lamps include everything from the enchanting fixtures by the Italian lighting artisans at Stilnovo to the distinctly functional Grasshopper floor lamp created by Scandinavian design pioneer Greta Magnusson-Grossman to the Paracarro floor lamp by the Venetian master glass workers at Mazzega. Among the more celebrated names in mid-century lighting design are Milanese innovators Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, who, along with their eldest brother, Livio, worked for their own firm as architects and designers. While Livio departed the practice in 1952, Achille and Pier Giacomo would go on to design the Arco floor lamp, the Toio floor lamp and more for legendary lighting brands such as FLOS

Today’s upscale interiors frequently integrate the otherworldly custom lighting solutions created by a wealth of contemporary firms and designers such as Spain’s Masquespacio, whose Wink floor lamps integrate gold as well as fabric fringes. 

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 yours now on 1stDibs.

Questions About Fluted Floor 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).

    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.

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.

    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
