The 10 Best Floor Lamps on Amazon That'll Level Up Your Light Game
The best thing I ever did for my small apartment was buy a floor lamp. It might sound trivial, but it has completely changed my space for the better. When looking at prospective rental units, the single most important thing to me was light — a hard conquest to achieve in NYC. And though I ultimately ended up with beautiful, big windows (thank goodness), my apartment has very little overhead lighting. Having a great floor lamp has made all the difference, especially at night, not to mention it doubles as a statement decor piece.
I digress, but since you've landed on this article, I'm guessing that you, too, could benefit from a new floor lamp. To help you find the perfect option for your space, whether a minimalist design or a contemporary conversation starter, I rounded up the 10 best ones Amazon has to offer. From dimmable options you can place next to your sofa to create a cozy atmosphere to task lighting with adjustable arms that are perfect for pairing with a lounge chair for reading, there's something for every style and price range. It's one of those things you'll never know you needed until you've got it, then you'll be amazed you ever lived without it. Keep reading to shop my picks.
