Not everyone will think that the floor lamp is a necessity when it comes to furnishing the home. After all, aren’t ceiling lights meant to provide illumination to the entire room? The thing about floor lamps however, is that they’re perfect for layering light. A well-positioned floor lamp brightens up the darker corners, complements the ceiling lights and adds to the intangibles of a well-designed interior. Functionality aside, floor lamps are also great space-fillers, especially if they look as great as these ones.
Designed by Samuel Lambert, the Cliff floor lamp is effortlessly stylish with its ultra-slim profile and angular design.

The lamp is adjustable, offering you the flexibility to direct the light towards any part of the home.
As its name suggests, the design of the Dandelion was inspired by its namesake, a flower that disperses a puff of cotton-like seeds when stirred by the wind.

Even the light bulb is unique – it’s a mouth-blown glass globe with a frosted surface that dims the light to a comfortable degree.
