We find that a good floor lamp is hard to come by. Table lamps are a great way to add distinction to a room, and everyone from Target to Ikea has great low priced options. But the floor lamp is a tough nut to crack. Inexpensive models tend to be cheap and rickety, and any time we see one we like it is never less that $800. We saw this Brett Floor Lamp in the Pottery Barn online catalog, and while we wish it were wood, this metal Pepper mill- style standing lamp has substance and weight, without being too intrusive. At under $200, we think it just might be the floor lamp to beat.
