Desire/Acquire: Wooden Tripod Floor Lamp


The Ralph Lauren Architect Floor Lamp ($600) is a chic, classic, and polished design that's ideal for the traditional homes of those cable-knit-sweater-wearing women. I find it très élégant with its rich red mahogany, and I love how it references the three-legged design of a surveyor's tripod. And, while I'm sure it's a very sturdy and high quality, I couldn't bring myself to spend 600 smackers on a floor lamp that's not a statement piece (this guy's more of a filler). Luckily, I found a more affordable alternative. To see it,


Wisteria at ShopStyle

The Wisteria Wooden Tripod Floor Lamp ($249) will cost you less than half the price of the former lamp, and it's equally chic. It's natural teak wood base gives it more of a casual vibe than the mahogany, but I tend to see few really formal homes these days, anyway. This lamp adjusts from a 35.5-inch height to a 58-inch height so it can alternate between a table and floor lamp. Beat that, Ralph Lauren!

Hi Riff, I'd love to see photos of your DIY lamp! Can you add them to our Su Casa group?

I don't care for the style at all.

I made a lamp just like that. Bought a beat-up, vintage camera tripod off of eBay for $20, added a $15 barrel shade from Target and a $10 lamp kit from any hardware store. I now have a cool, casual, one-of-a-kind lamp that always gets noticed for less than $50. (My inspiration was a high-end store that was selling them for $1000!)

I like the cheaper one better, too. I mean I can clearly see the quality in the expensive one but the cheaper one is a little more relaxed, would go great in my apartment!

I love the darker one, just because I have expensive taste. The more cost effective one is nice though. I would buy it.

Nice find! I like the darker color of the Ralph Lauren, but the price difference makes up for that.. I still don't think I could spend that much on a floor lamp.
