Pretty living room with standing lamp

One of the most powerful things you can do to alter the feel of a room is to change the quality of the light in it. Although hanging pendants and mounted sconces can add a really unique element to any room, if you’re looking for a quicker (and more renter-friendly) option, you can never go wrong with investing in a stylish floor lamp. However, like most lighting solutions, floor lamps can typically set you back a pretty penny — or at least they used to. The world of lighting has come a long way recently, with many of our favorite (and the most stylish) floor lamps costing way less than you might expect — we’re talking cheaper than a Benjamin here! From classic lamps to modern golden picks to one that even has a built-in table, we rounded up 12 super-stylish, statement-making floor lamps — and they all come in at $100 or less.

Its cage-like shades are almost like art pieces in themselves.

If you're anything like us at Apartment Therapy, then you love the look of a chic gold floor lamp — like this Ashley pick. Made from durable metal with a stylish brass finish, this floor lamp mixes a curved stand (complete with a rotary switch) with a glass globe shade, adding an effortless touch of mid-century modern design to any space. It's also reminiscent of those trendy Schoolhouse Electric pendant lights, at a fraction of the price. Win-win.

This brass floor lamp looks so nice, especially considering it's only $50. But don't take my word for it.
