Floor lamps are both functional and stylish and one style particularly stands out and that is the arc lamp.  It's a classic go-to piece for the modern living room and as been a staple of modern design for over five decades. An arc lamp is an easy way to enhance a room's interior design.  It can become a focal point, drawing attention to an area you want to highlight. An elegant and simple arched floor lamp is more than just a pretty face; it can provide light where a table lamp can't, and is a great option when a chandelier or pendant light isn't a possibility. While chandeliers and pendant lights are more for ambient lighting, arc lamps are especially good for task lighting as you can see in the picture above of a reading corner decked out in metallics. They can also act as a space saver when there isn't enough room for a side table with a lamp, and their bases are small enough that they can hide behind large furniture or be backed into a corner. Arc lamps aren't just for living rooms - they are also a great way to illuminate a dining area.  We love the combination of the sleek contemporary lamp and modern chairs with the more rustic live-edge dining table. We had to include this groovy 70s restaurant by Warren Platner for its inventive use of arc lamps.  The arc lamps preclude the need for chandeliers, which would have ruined the effect of that show-stopping ceiling. The finish on these lamps isn't limited to the chrome in which it was originally designed.  There are versions with shades, multiple lights and different finishes like brass or bronze, which makes them very flexible and easy to incorporate into just about any interior design style.  Arc lamps also come in a range of prices so there is no need to break the bank in order to get one into your room.
