The best floor lamps of Nordic design

Floor lamps are true eye-catchers, not only because of their light but also their size and height. A long stand gives floor lamps a sculptural silhouette and sometimes even an impression of the light floating in the air. Floor lamps are ideal beside an armchair or sofa, in a lobby or bedroom, or any room that requires a brighter spotlight or soft atmospheric lighting to complement the ceiling light. Our range includes both classic floor lamps from the 1900s and contemporary pieces from Scandinavian quality brands, ranging from low and high floor lamps to torchiere lamps as well as tripod and arch floor lamps.

Floor lamps can provide many types of lighting: a diffused light, direct spotlight or bright general light. If you are looking for a floor lamp with pleasantly soft light, your choice can be, for example, a lamp with an opal glass shade or a Japanese-style paper lantern. If you need a good spotlight for reading or working, an industrial floor lamp with an adjustable shade and arm is an ideal choice. Sometimes a floor lamp even can replace the ceiling light, particularly if the bulb is bright enough to reflect light around from the ceiling and wall. Modern floor lights can also have many useful technical features, such as a dimmer, an integrated LED unit or a timer.

Finnish Design Shop’s selection includes a stylish range of floor lights both from masters of Nordic design, mid-century modernism and designers around the world. We stock floor lights designed by Alvar Aalto for Artek, Poul Henningsen’s and Arne Jacobsen's models by Louis Poulsen and wooden floor lights by the Finnish Secto Design. The colour range includes classic black and white, shiny brass and steel, bright colours and elegant marble. Choose your favourite floor lamp and update your home with a genuine, timeless Scandinavian design!
