Top 3 Modern Floor Lamps

Brighten dark corners and create instant ambiance with these modern floor lamps.
The Twiggy Floor Lamp is characterized by a thin, playful and sophisticated design. Flexibility is the word for Twiggy; flexibility of the material which defines the ample and essential curve of the arm that carries the light source far from the base, in the possibility of adjusting the height of the shade thanks to a system of counterweights, and in the possibility of adjusting the length of the arm.
When designing the Estiluz Pluma Floor Lamp, Estudi Riaudi wanted "something new and something that just has to be." The familiar would be the timelessness of the classic arc profile. The unexpected? For starters, the arc is extendable, allowing variable adjustments to the height and width of the fixture. And then there is the shade configuration, flipped to face the stem and deftly balanced on a single point.
The Moooi Construction Floor Lamp feels like a large scale version of the now century old (and still counting!) erector set. Primarily fabricated from diecast powder coated aluminum, you can't help but illicit a smile over intricate finishing details like the employment of brass screws and, for one variant, scaffolding structured from actual wood slats. An inline dimmer controls the amount of light required for night work.
