Floor lamps offer a great way to light larger rooms, especially when you don’t have built-in ceiling electrical, and they’re more flexible than ceiling lamps since they can be easily moved wherever they’re needed most. For high illumination we recommend fitting floor lamps with 12.5W AmbientLED bulbs (that’s equivalent to a traditional 60W incandescent) or even a 17W AmbientLED bulbs (equivalent to 75W incandescents) for maximum brightness.
The Lights Up! Meridian Floor Lamp is an elegant design that stands straight up and illuminates any room with an omnidirectional pillar of light. Designed by Rachel Simon, the lamp is customizable with 100% recycled PED fabrics, which means you can dress it up in colors and patterns if the standard white linen model is too stark for your style. The Meridian Floor lamp is a great match for any A-shape LED bulb – for high illumination we recommend a Philips 17W AmbientLED light bulb.
The 72-inch-high Possini Light Blaster Torchiere is a great option for lighting large spaces that require a lot of lumens. The chrome and brushed steel floor lamp features four sockets that accept standard A-shaped bulbs – deck it out with 4 17W Philips AmbientLED bulbs for maximum brightness, and use the integrated high-low switch to fine tune light output for any situation.
Forget what you’ve heard about opening an umbrella indoors – the Pablo Umbrella Light is clearly a bright idea. This fun surrealist lamp is fully adjustable and when paired with a 60 watt equivalent LED bulb (like the Philips A19 AmbientLED) it produces a warm swath of light – even when it’s dark and drizzly outside.
A modern twist on a classic form, the Mooi’s Paper Floor Lamp updates traditional Victorian decor with its paper construction and larger-than-life size. Designers Studio Job combined a wooden base with a beautiful layered paper finish. Pair this clever paper lamp with an a-shaped 60 watt incandescent equivalent AmbientLED bulb to provide both ambient and direct illumination.
