Lately, I’ve been obsessed with modern styles. Maybe it’s because of this year's focus on louder looks like patterned furniture and corduroy upholstery, but now, I’m looking for something a bit more statement-making when it comes to decor pieces as well.

While I was on the hunt for a new modern floor lamp for my living room, I was pleasantly by CB2’s massive collection. With most items clocking under $1,000, these are the affordable options I’ve always needed, and each one is different in its own way: Featuring bulbed designs, brass accents, and cool white touches, these modern lamps from CB2 run the gamut, and I’m so glad I found them. In fact I can see these options helping you with your own living room lighting ideas.

While I can’t say every option was a winner, I did find some cool modern floor lamps I can’t wait to show you. Let there be light, indeed.

Floor lamps FAQ

What is the best height for a floor lamp?

You can trust Homes & Gardens. Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing the latest products, helping you choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

The ideal height for most floor lamps is usually between 60 and 67 inches. However, if your floor lamp is next to a chair or sofa, and you just need the light for reading, the general rule is the bottom of the shade should be around eye level when you’re seated. If you want a larger amount of light to brighten an entire room, a taller height of closer to 69 inches is best: It will also ensure that you won't get blinded by the light bulb when you’re standing close to the floor lamp.
