Modernist floor lamps for sale in our vintage edit

Originally popular in the first half of the 20th century, the modernist style movement reigned from the 20’s to the 50’s but has remained popular ever since. It’s clean lines, use of natural materials and relaxed simplicity have earned it design-classic status. It’s particularly well suited to open plan spaces but used cleverly can also create a feeling of space and calm in more restricted rooms.

A modernist floor lamp is an ideal way to try out the style, or complete the full look in your home. Seek out simplistic structures for your lamp choice. Tall slim modernist floor lamps bring functional styles that can be positioned for purpose. Match them to your smaller table lamps to further amp up the practicality. The use of light to decorate a room is a key component in modernist style. So modernist floor lamps are a great place to start when experimenting with this look and feel.

Similar to industrial styling, modernism requires objects to ‘earn their place’ and always have a practical purpose. Your modernist floor lamp can be beautiful but it needs to be useful. Natural light is vital so make sure the positioning of your Modernist floor lamp compliments this. Or even emulates it in darker corners. When it comes to materials for your modernist-style floor lamp keep it natural. Leathers, woods, metals and fabrics like silk all work well. Colour choices should stay neutral and natural too.

Styling your modernist floor lamp

Modernism is not a fan of clutter. So your modernist floor lamp may need no extra styling at all. But if you want to carry on the modernist feel throughout your room then a stylish modernist sideboard is the perfect partner. Choose a classic G Plan style for a design icon that will never go out of style. Or experiment with an upcycled sideboard for a piece with personality. In terms of other decor styles modernism fits well with plenty of options. Mid century is a natural bedfellow. For a stylish reading nook team a mid century modern armchair with your modernist floor lamp. A pair either side will give even more prominence to your lamp. Or keep it singular for a peaceful corner to rest and relax in.
