Floor Lamps Galore

Many designers say that adding light to a room is a great way to add space to an otherwise small room. I'm on the hunt currently for a really cute and classic floor lamp but don't really want to spend a lot. Finding a great floor lamp is a piece of cake, but finding one for a reasonable price is NOT. Therefor, I have put together a collection of beautiful, classic, and good quality floor lamps all for UNDER $200! Enjoy.

Shades of Light is my new GO-TO (i know, I hate that phrase too.) lamp source! This beautiful wooden twisted floor lamp is $198.

This is cute and feminine from Shades of Light as well. The Fleurette lamp for $150.

My sister just got this one (with a drum shade) for her apartment in Chicago! The Library Floor Lamp is classic and simple from Restoration Hardware for $175 in Antique Nickel.

This polished nickel Chase Pharmacy Lamp is also on sale for $119. I like is crisp, refined look; from Restoration Hardware.

CB2 Photography Lamp for 99.95. I secretly love this one because of the name.

Adair Floor lamp from Pottery Barn. $179. I love the swan neck; it's very graceful.
This might be as funky as I get, folks. I really love this french GLAM floor lamp from EQ3, a great source for lighting. Only 179.99!

From Ballard Designs, this one is a bit more architectural and you can adjust it. Lancaster Floor lamp for $99!

Apothecary floor lamp, also from Ballard is another one of my favorites and comes in brass and bronze. For $169.

So, if you live in a small space, add a little light in your life (besides the daily dose of ME). The pharmacy lamps are so charming and great for reading in a club chair, or on your sofa. I love the architectural look of some of the others and remind me of working in a studio or doing drafting! I know I have a more classic and traditional taste in things but if you think you want something like a torchiere or an up lighter...think again.

Great tips...I just checked out Shades of Light and it looks great. Any suggestions for a good ceiling mount for a guest bedroom?

I would've thought the RH lamps would be more expensive than that -- are they on sale? Regardless, I should definitely not just be crossing it off the list as "too expensive"!

A great round-up. I've always thought that lamps are the hardest part of any room.

I love the CB2 photography lamp as well as the EQ3 lamp. Both could be very well used in a contemporary minimalist interiors.
Do you know if Shades of Light will be opening up a new store in NYC?

random co-inkydink... I was just working on a floor lamp post too. Alas mine are not budget-friendly. :(

I actually got a RH floor lamp with a simpler base (chosen by AliciaB!). It looked so great (and the price was so right - only 80 bucks on sale - that we bought another!).
