If you fancy something decorative as well as illuminating for the living room, then check out the Mid-Century Curvilinear Floor Lamp by West Elm.
This one has it all. Style, substance and drama. Oh yes, it lights up your room too. But above all, this is a light that really would take pride of place in a retro or MCM living space.
Space is probably what you need for it too, not least to see this lamp at its best. Love the skinny tripod base, which supports the equally skinny arms and above those, the shell-shaped shades in a contrasting dark colour.
If you want light in a particular place, you can have that too, as each shade can be tilted so light can be aimed exactly where it is needed. Finishing things off is a lengthy cable with an in-line switch.
What you don’t get is the bulbs. They are 42w halogen bulbs that need buying separately. Always annoying when that happens – and it happens a lot. £399 is the price of this floor lamp and it is available online right now.
