The studio lamp


Signal Floor Lamp. $350. Visit

By Elisa Krovblit

It's a floor lamp, but not "just" a floor lamp. With a chic tripod base, studio lamps are style makers. They're a little bit industrial, a little bit mid-century modern and a little bit loft. They're work-horse machinery with a fine finish – and they make a statement.

Tip: The quality of light you want will determine which style works for you. An articulated body aims light with precision, a shaded lamp diffuses it and direct beam puts you in the spotlight.
