Lamps aren’t just a convenient way to ensure that your room isn’t engulfed in darkness — they’re also a great way to add a little extra style to a corner or nook that would otherwise be forgotten. The best part? They come in every shape, style, and finish, too. From antique-inspired pharmacy lamps to linear designs worthy of a modern art museum, floor lamps can be the finishing touch your room needs to go from basic to a total vibe.

This is especially true with floor lamps, which draw the eye upward and make a big statement without taking up a ton of space. One of the trendiest looks in floor lamps right now? Bold brass fixtures. The aged metal pairs well with pretty much any decor aesthetic and goes a long way toward warming up a space. Below, shop 10 of our favorite floor lamps in brass, the metal of the moment.

"I have two of these lamps flanking the sides of my fireplace for extra ambiance and vibes," says AT Shopping Director Jada Wong of this petite yet stylish design. "I love the minimalist and timeless look with the brass frame, Edison bulb, and clear glass shade — it just goes well with the mashup of decor styles in my house. It doesn't hurt that they're well-priced for a floor lamp either — Brightech's affordability is the main reason why I have five of their lamps!"

When it comes to floor lamps, an arc silhouette is a classic form dating back to mid-century modern design. Still, this pick from Joss & Main feels as current as ever, thanks to the brass finish that makes the whole piece shine. Keep in mind, this is one of the largest floor lamps on our list, so it's better suited to a bigger area, like your living room.

Pottery Barn

This Pottery Barn floor lamp is certainly a pricey pick, but it's worth it once you see it also doubles as a petite drink table.

Lulu and Georgia

Pretty much anything looks good alongside brass, but especially rattan. The two materials balance each other out — one reads glam, one reads casual, and they're both a warm, neutral shade. This Lulu and Georgia floor lamp pairs both of those beautiful elements into one stylish form, with a pair of dual pull chains providing the final decorative touch.
