Well Polished: 8 of the best Brass Floor Lamps

Light up your living space with these stylish brass floor lamps. Not just for illuminating dark corners and providing a useful reading light over an armchair or sofa, these brass floor lamps are also a great way to fill an empty space, adding ambience and style to a room.

With brass the metal of the moment, the rich finish on the floor lamps in our edit ahead, will inject both warmth and sophistication to a space and will bring an existing scheme bang up to date. Team with a brass table lamp or pendant in the same series or in a complementary style and introduce further brass touches on accessories such as vases or candlesticks for cohesion.

Check out our edit of the best metallic task lamps.

The models in our edit range from modern classics such as Michael Anastassiades now iconic (and much imitated) IC F1 floor lamp for Flos to the Chester from Original BTC, with its distinctive 1960s vibe.

There's much in between too, with some cool and inexpensive online offerings from Swoon, with its beautifully balanced, Algol, Perch & Parrow's retro-style Boris and Pooky's simple and striking, Galore.

Also catching our collective eye is Bo Concept's Kip, Cox and Cox' Club lamp and Bert Frank's beautiful Masina. All of which will add instant flair to your room.

A beautiful brass floor lamp – or two – will also enable you to layer your lighting and create atmospheric pools of light. Rather than relying on purely overhead lighting, which can be a tad harsh, a balance of pendant, floor and table lamps, makes for a far more relaxing and enjoyable home environment to be in. And who wouldn't want that?
