Brass floor lamps – a buyer’s guide

If you want a bit of class, you can’t go wrong with brass - that’s what we always say, anyway. Here’s Pooky’s guide to floor lamps in brass – a surprisingly affordable way to bring designer lighting into your living room…

A remarkably versatile material, brass. Depending on the colour and shape it can be contemporary, classic, or have a lovely antiquey, retro feel. And by pairing a brass standing lamp with the right designer lampshade, you can get it to work in all manner of interior design schemes. Here’s a buyer’s guide to our designer brass floor lamps, with some tips to inspire you…

Trafalgar – for some elegant style

The Trafalgar was a fluke, really – a mistake that worked. We picked an offcut of brass from the workshop floor and lamp-ified it to make the Trafalgar table lamp. After a bit of tweaking and refinement it turned out to be one of our most successful designs – oozing style and effortless class. So naturally we made the absolute most if it and made a big version too – an impressively tall 144cm floor lamp. The Trafalgar floor lamp, like the table lamp, comes in two colours, each with a very distinctive feel (we told you brass was versatile). In the Antique Brass colour it has a slightly showy, vintage antique-ness… trafalgar with ivory dupion silk shade

…while in the darker Antique Bronze it is more understated – you could even use it in a minimalist scheme, perhaps with a plain silk lampshade.

Miami – for some understated cool

Just as understated and just as cool and stylish, is the Miami. Created by Jorge and his valiant team in Portugal, it is 140cm of pure brass and has a simple tripod-style base. Very nice. miami

Black Monday – for some timeless style

The Black Monday is a black and antiqued brass column sitting in a solid disc of marble - it's as simple as that. This is a floor lamp design that will, quite simply, never go out of style.

Mo and Galore – for some mid-century modernism

The Mo's clean angles and hooded shade follow the style of mid-20th century modernism, which is as cool as it's ever been. We spent a lot of time debating the exact angle of the shade to get it just right.

Sunday – for a bit of authority
