  • The Return of the Pole Floor Lamp

    Pole floor lamps are definitely regaining popularity.Triad Chrome 3-Arm LED Task Floor Lamp

    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.

    You can also install it on the horizontal for use as a bath bar.

    It comes with halogen bulbs as well as LEDs.

  • Staff Picks -- Adam's Top 10 Giclee Patterns

    Blue and Green Circlets Giclee Glow Shade

    Our exclusive collection of giclee lighting and wall art features 1000's of exclusive patterns, each of which is made-to-order here in California.

    In other words, there is a lot to choose from. I've narrowed it down (a little) to my top ten favorite giclee patterns. These patterns are available on table lamps, floor lamps, pendants, ceiling lights and more.

    So, without further ado ... From cool to colorful, these are the designs that float my boat:

    Circles of cool blue gather together on the design seen above. Great for beachy-cool spaces or a mod motif. Blue Green Circlets Giclee

    This ornate, traditional pattern is punched up with spectacular sage. Sage Filigree Giclee

    Sophisticated with a simple, circular pattern. Portholes Giclee

    From pattern guru Stacy Garcia, I love the combination of stripes with the floral silhouette. Stacy Garcia Harvest Dahlia Giclee

    Three-Tone Leaves Giclee Glow Shade

    An organic tree design softens the sophisticated black and white palette on the Three-Tone Leaves Giclee (seen above).

    Regency Black Giclee Glow Shade

    Paisley is always cool. Regency Black Giclee

    Circles and leaves at the bottom join the color-block top for a two-tone design. Wispy Circles Giclee

    Another traditional flourish presented in cool blue with ivory. Ivory Blue Tapestry Giclee

    This bright, colorful design is perfect for a child's room. Or surprise your sweetie! Be My Valentine Giclee
