Find the perfect second-hand floor lamp for your home

A vintage standing lamp makes a beautiful addition to any room. Think bold colours, tasselled shades and decorative stands. They can be a bold or subtle accessory that elevates the style of understated rooms. A vintage tripod floor lamp from the 1950s creates instant retro chic while an elegant Edwardian brass lamp adds an authentic finishing touch to traditional rooms. It really is that easy. The kind of vintage floor lamp you choose might depend on the space you’re working with and the colour scheme of your room. Fortunately, there are so many styles and sizes of vintage floor lamps, you’re sure to find one that works for you. The average old-fashioned lamp is around five to six feet tall, but you can find taller lamps which are great for filling bigger spaces and shorter ones which are useful for task lighting. Lamp bases come in a variety of styles and are fashioned from lots of different materials, including wood, brass and marble. They can be incredibly detailed and decorative, or elegant and understated. Every decade has a favourite second-hand floor lamp style, and you’ll find lots of them in our extensive collection.

How can you identify a vintage floor lamp?

Lamps can be made to appear old. To source an authentic vintage floor lamp, look at the base and hunt for a label, maker's mark, or name. The light fixture itself may also be stamped or marked in some way. If there is no name or mark, take a look at the wear in the base. It should show some scuffs. Remember, you're trying to find a vintage piece that's over fifty years old.

Vintage floor lamps for sale to to create the perfect lighting

Lighting is an essential part of creating the right atmosphere and ambience in your home. Ceiling lights can be too bright and overbearing, and small lamps often don’t provide enough light. Floor lamps are the perfect compromise. Vintage floor lamps are the perfect way to enhance the look of a room and create a cosy and calm feel. When you don’t want overhead or wall lights on, the vintage right floor lamp can illuminate even large spaces. It’s also an effective alternative to a table lamp, which tends to cast light only where it sits. Vintage standing lamps can be used to create ambient lighting. They add diffused light which casts a cosy glow when placed in the corner of the room. They can also be used for task lighting, by placing them next to an armchair in your favourite reading spot. When choosing a lamp for task lighting, the bottom of the shade should be around eye level when sitting. Layering lights, choosing lamps of different heights and mixing vintage standing lamps with table lamps is the best way to create multifaceted light for the perfect mood in your room. So get creative and mix and match bases, shades and different styles.

Choosing the right lamp shade for your vintage floor lamp

The shade is an important part of a vintage standing lamp. It helps to direct and diffuse the light it gives out, as well setting the design style. Our lamp shades are made from a range of materials, typically fabric, glass, plastic or leather. Fabric shades with lots of patterns or colours can create a tinted glow, while opaque shades are great for ambient lighting.

Whatever style of vintage floor lamp you crave, you’re sure to find it in our edit of over 3000 pieces. Unearth your one-of-a-kind today.
