Floor lamps are like long necklaces or draped scarves: their lines and curves elongate vertical space and provide extra character and style. Especially bold and dramatic are oversized lamps, which play with our established sense of space, scale and proportion. Whatever the style — anglepoise, arc or tripod — the leggy lights are theatrical but not entirely superfluous.
