A good looking floor lamp is one of the simplest ways to add some sculptural interest to any space while also providing practical illumination and ambiance. Anchoring a living room corner or dutifully brightening up your favorite reading spot, they're a must-have for any home. When buying a floor lamp, you want to strike the right balance between price, build quality and a design that won't look out of date in a few years. What's more, you'll never know where you'll find them. There are some handsome ones at your local Target. And one of the coolest lamps we found was at a children's furniture shop—but damn if it doesn't look sophisticated enough for any grown man's place.
