As Apartment Therapy’s style editor, my job involves scouting out the latest interior design trends, new under-the-radar (and budget-friendly!) brands and products, and need-to-know launches. Now, I’m sharing my professional prowess with all of you, handpicking a few of my favorite ready-to-ship finds across a variety of furniture, decor, and even DIY project material categories.

This week’s edition? The best floor lamps for every design taste — from boho to vintage-inspired to mid-century modern. All small-space-approved and less than $150, every pick is a winner. Whether you’re looking to level up any dimly-lit corners, brighten your home office setup, or just get some design inspo overall, check out these stylish pieces available via West Elm, Target, Home Depot, and more. You might want to act fast though, since some are currently temporarily discounted or have limited sale inventory!

Add the Brightech brand to your places to shop for lighting list, stat. The direct-to-consumer company specializes in modern, high-quality fixtures minus the high-end price tags. Case in point? This less-than-$100 metal apothecary floor lamp, which features an adjustable gooseneck head and vintage-inspired profile (plus free shipping!).

West Elm

Unique in silhouette and design, this black-on-brass fixture practically feels like a sculptural work of art — and for just $130, to boot! The eccentric dome shade design, paired with the ultra-thin angular base, will modernize any spot in a cinch for the ultimate (compact!) functional focal point.

Get the rattan look for less via Better Homes & Gardens’ tight-corner-approved style. It’s the perfect accent to lean into this natural trend — not to mention a refreshing pop of texture that’s neutral enough to complement your home’s current color palette. With its sub-$100 price tag, you can even consider buying a pair to bookend your bed or sofa.

Urban Outfitters

What’s not to love about smart, double-duty design? This Urban Outfitters storage-lamp hybrid pairs three convenient shelves with a lantern-inspired light. The design also comes in black and white colorways as well as an identical square-shaped version for the same price.

Lamps Plus

It’s easy to see why pharmacy lamps have yet to go out of style: They’re timeless, typically adjustable, and slim enough to furnish a reading nook or sophisticated-looking vignette using minimal floor space. This Lamps Plus classic comes with a pivotable arm; plus, the rod can alternate heights between 44 and 54 inches, so you get a level of customizability here, too.

The more bulbs, the merrier — this minimalist floor lamp features three glass globes, oriented in multiple directions for maximum lighting on demand. Equal parts compact and contemporary, it’s ideal for filling especially small, dark areas in style.

No room for a table lamp? No problem! You can work your vertical space with this modern brass Target fixture. The movable arm and small drum shade are perfectly positioned to illuminate whatever’s directly below, whether near your desk or dresser top. Best of all? It’s just $40.

was $90.00

Plot twist: Floor lamps don’t have to be super tall. This collection of petite handmade bamboo lights from Etsy creates a uniquely cozy-meets-boho atmosphere from the ground up. Choose between six different basket-shaped heights and price points, ranging from 18 inches tall for $76.50 to 33 inches for $170. You can even bundle a few of these lights together for a multi-level trio. Note that they’re all currently 15 percent off, too!

Home Depot

Another swing-arm style, this antique-looking bronze floor lamp includes an off-white linen drum shade and subtle spindle shapes for added visual interest. It honestly resembles a family heirloom, so much so that you’d never guess it came from The Home Depot for $70.97.
