A well-placed floor lamp can make a huge impact on the ambience of a room. These tall lights illuminate dark corners and warm up the overall tone of a space, as well as make great task lights. An arc floor lamp is a popular and elegant choice, whereas a chandelier floor lamp is a more decorative option. No matter what your stylistic preference is, shop the floor lamps for sale below, and light up your home! For determining height, consider where your light will be placed in the room and what you want it to accomplish, plus the size of your furniture. A reading light shouldn’t extend too far up, whereas a light intended to help brighten a large corner or small room will need to be a bit taller. You also don’t want your new lamps to overpower your furniture or be in the way of everyday traffic. Where should I place my floor lamp? When shopping for your new floor lamp, keep in mind where your available electrical outlets are as well as the layout of your furniture. Avoid stringing the electrical cord across the room — it can become a tripping and fire hazard, plus it can make your space look odd and unfinished. If you choose an arc lamp, be sure to position it in the corner so anyone taking a seat doesn’t bump his or her head. Smaller floor lamps are easier to place along walls or the edges of furniture.

Elegant Mid-Century brass floor lamp with fiberglass shade. The lamp is made in the 1950s in Germany. It has its original switches and they work separately: one powers the lightbulb at the top of the lampshade and the other powers the two lightbulbs at the base of the lampshade. The item is in overall good shape with some scratches on the tripod and minor signs of ware on the shade (see photos).
