Standard Lamps – Our Pick of the Best

10 images

Today’s standard lamps are mercifully casting off their barleytwist, pink velvet fringed reputation with some gloriously modern designs that can add real wow factor to a home, whatever its style. Show-stopping arc lamps in super-reflective chrome are a striking alternative to low-hung pendants, while Anglepoise-style standard lamps in brilliantly bright colours play with scale, confuse the eye and add an injection of fun. Classic and traditional styles still abound too and wooden tripods, chandelier standards and Tiffany styles can all cast a little magical mood lighting in a living room.
