Pole floor lamps were a common room accent in the 1950s and '60s. Often they stretched from floor to ceiling and were held in place with a tension rod.
I like the Espo floor lamp with the sci-fi streamlined lamp heads. This contemporary design doesn't reach the ceiling, but it offers the same cool retro looks, and come with multiple lights that you can adjust as needed.
Also in our floor lamps sort, a cool design with spherical shades: Spherical Metal Shade Tree Floor Lamp.
Metropolitan Home magazine may be no more, having ceased publication with the December '09 issue (see this New York Times obit), but you can still roam their online site.
You'll find loads of interesting articles and pictorials on contemporary style lighting and metro chic modern decor.
Case in point, a feature on British designer diva Kelly Hoppen's Georgian townhouse remodel.
Read it while you can - Met Home of the Month: December 2009.

Snapped some great pics over the holidays? Don't let them languish on your hard drive ... enjoy the memories with a digital photo frame.
Digital cameras are great and (in my opinion) a big improvement over film. The only drawback is that so many pictures get buried on your memory card or computer, never to see the light of day.
Digital photo frames let you view and enjoy your pictures every day. We've just added a bunch from Tao Electronics. The 5x7 screen is a crisp LCD. They're compatible with all major memory cards and they even play videos and music.
Brighten your decor with a digital slideshow! See all our Tao Electronics digital photo frames.

If jet-set is your style, you'll love these retro modern pendant lights from designer Jonathan Adler. These will look great in a kitchen setting, or use them to add a kick of retro contemporary style to a seating area.
Pictured to the left is the Capri pendant light in white. It also comes in a beautiful Capri blue, Capri orange and Capri grey. There are also Capri style table lamps; find them in the Jonathan Adler lighting collection.
I love seeing products used in creative and unconventional ways. An Apartment Therapy reader introduced awesome ambient lighting in her bedroom with rope lights. A wonderful and affordable idea! See the results at Apartment Therapy.
Gizmodo did the same in the home office by stringing rope lighting underneath a desk. See pictures at Gizmodo.
Get creative! Browse our selection of rope lights in a range of lengths.
Also, check out Lightbar LED accent lighting. It looks fantastic behind the media center and other furniture.
The days are (slowly) getting longer, but Winter is still hanging around for a while. If you're keeping warm by the fireplace or wood stove, we've got beautifully crafted accessories for it.
Corral sparks and embers with a fireplace screen. Organize wood and kindling with a log holder. And keep the fire burning bright with a set of fireplace tools.
Take a look at all of our fireplaces and accesories and stay toasty!
As a follow-up to Monday's post, I found these fun, very readable blog entries from Jonathan Adler on the Huffington Post in which he offers his charming/cheeky decorating advice. The entries are from 2008 but this post on making small spaces look bigger is timeless.
Mirrors are the central theme. You can segment our selection of over 700 wall mirrors by style to tailor a look to your space.
Also check out our Jonathan Adler assortment to see his take on home decor.
Finally, check out this post from our own LP blogger John on utilizing glass top tables for small spaces. The side table below is from Jonathan Adler.
