Long story short, we need a floor lamp.
Long story long, this is the first fall we’ve spent in our house and we’re realizing that our living room is very dark. In fact, there aren’t any lights in our living room. We’ve been tossing around adding a row or two of can lights, but in the meantime, we need a floor lamp.
But, I kinda hate floor lamps. They can be so ugly. SO UGLY. Let me try that again… floor lamps that don’t cost $300 can be SO UGLY.
Here are a few that I have my eye on for our living room, all for under $150 each. Any favorites?
Threshold Seeded Glass Industrial Floor Lamp, Target (Online only), $90
I really like this one and I think it would be a good fit in our living room and would give off a lot of indirect light from the clear shade. It comes with an Edison Bulb, which is cool, too.
RANARP Floor/Reading Lamp, Ikea (In-stores only), $60
I’ve had my eye on this lamp from Ikea for a while. I love the brass details and the white would look really fresh against the backdrop of our deep blue living room walls. (Who’s going to Ikea soon?)
Pharmacy Floor Lamp, Target (Online only), $130
This lamp is a bit more traditional and it’s probably my least favorite on the list, but there’s something about it that I do like.
Contrast Cord Floor Lamp, Urban Outfitters (Online only), $149
This one is fun and funky and the contrasting orange cord is a nice touch.
Cantilever Lamp, Urban Outfitters (Online only), $149 (Currently on sale for $129)
This one caught my eye and I love the shape and that wood handle. However, I worry that adding more blue to our living room would be a mistake.
Stella Floor Lamp, Urban Outfitters (Online only), $129
This lamp from Urban Outfitters is a fan favorite and I know a few people who have it. It’s a little frilly, but that might be a good contrast in our not-so-frilly living room.
