We went on a quest to find the best modern floor lamps.
In surveying our readers for their favorites, we realized when it comes to “modern” floor lamps, folks have different ideas of what’s best. Some folks want a modern industrial look; others preferred a craftsman style tripod look. And then there are the gold (bright brass) modern floor lamps with an aesthetic all their own.
When it comes to modern LED floor lamps with a space-agey look, we think Brightech Helix’s floor lamp is the best best for most folks. It won style points on overall looks, as well as practical aspects (warm light glow).
What We Liked
• Modern vibe with curving design.
• Foot pedal dimmer switch.
• 3-way dimmable.
• 90″ cord.
• Great for smaller spaces—48″ tall.
What Needs Work
• Too plastic-y for some folks. Yes, this light is made of plastic . . . but we still like the overall look. If you want a more metallic modern floor lamp, consider the next recommendation.
