Lighting can do wonders in a room, regardless of its size. To create a welcoming interior with various layers of light, it's a good idea to balance an overhead light fixture with a chic floor lamp. Whether your goal is to enhance a living room or add personality to a bedroom setup, dining room or reading space, take a look below at our roundup of the best floor lamps. Some of our picks are budget-friendly, but we've included others that are worthy of a splurge.
Unlike desk lamps, floor lamps can fit into tight spaces to brighten up dark rooms or corners for reading, enhance your lounging experience or make late-night gatherings feel cozier. Below, you'll find lighting for every style, including modern, industrial and sculptural picks found at retailers like Amazon and Wayfair. Some lighting options are on sale too (for as low as $40!), while unique floor lamps can be pricier.
Regardless of your budget, you're sure to find a floor lamp that suits your taste. Just be sure to focus on the aspects that matter — size, material and adjustability. And while you're at it, consider our favorite light therapy lamps if the cold winter months tend to put a damper on your mood.
