What are mid century floor lamps?
Mid century floor lamps date back to the middle of the 20th century; usually after 1945 and before 1970. Though many furniture styles fall under the mid century umbrella, the term does refer to a specific design movement rather than to any pieces manufactured during this era. Mid century furnishings were heavily inspired by the clean lines of Scandinavian modern design and are characterised by their geometric shapes, natural materials and absence of fussy detail. The pieces have undergone something of a revival in recent years, with mid century modern floor lamps featuring prominently in the world of interior design.
Choosing a mid century floor lamp
The Vinterior website offers a wide range of mid century floor lamps, making it difficult to choose just one. Decide first of all if you want a lamp that’s functional, aesthetic or both. If practicality is your primary concern, an arc floor lamp or a light with adjustable heads will work well; offering directional light that’s ideal for reading or playing card games.
Want something a little more ambient? Pick a mid century floor lamp with a shade for a warm and cosy glow. If you’re all about making a statement, anything in brushed brass or glossy chrome is a safe bet. And if you really want to push the style boat out, you’ll find a myriad unique designs from our independent dealers. From wacky multi-headed lights to carved wooden lamps.
Styling mid century modern floor lamps
Characterised by their understated and timeless designs, mid century modern floor lamps will complement a range of décor styles. Of course, you could pair your lamp with other pieces of mid century modern furniture, but there’s no need to play it too safe. If you’re a fan of Nordic design, mid century and Scandi are a match made in heaven. Pair an antique Danish sofa with a fluffy sheepskin rug and a brushed brass floor lamp for an up-market take on the Hygge trend. Going for a more transitional look? Think plush cream sofas, muted Persian rugs and a classic uplighter or frosted globe floor lamp.
Whatever your preferred décor style, you’re sure to find a mid century modern floor lamp on Vinterior that will fit the bill.
