    The two light heads can be moved from a flat position to an upward position depending on your needs.

    Promising review: "Sometimes, Amazon needs to allow something higher than five stars. Our review of this lamp is one of those times. To say the lamp is fantastic, awesome, stunning, and unbelievable are all words that seem lacking. We bought a different lamp from this company and it is equally as dazzling. Together, they are the perfect pair. The lamp gives off ambient light when you're watching a movie and the archs are aimed upwards, but if you want more light than you will ever need, just rotate the archs downward, hit the high setting, and voila. We love, love, love this lamp." —D. Hill

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in two colors).

    7. An LED-compatible modern floor lamp whose chic design will be a total treat for your home and will have your accent cabinet thanking your for the sweet addition.

I receive compliments on it from everyone who walks into my home! It’s placed in an attention focal corner of my living room on a pedestal, so it commands the great room since it’s beautifully unique! A definite artistic touch! Ensure you use extreme TLC when handling so it doesn’t bend anywhere! I love it❤️." —hunterjumpermorgan

    Promising review: "This lamp was just what I was looking for! The traditional torch floor lamps just look dated (in my opinion), but this lamp is tall enough for a large room, very modern in style, and the remote lets you not only dim the brightness, but change the color tone to suit your space! Very happy with this purchase." —Katie F.

    Promising review: "I love this floor lamp, it’s so cute and unique looking, and the globes are really delicate and chic. The light isn’t the brightest, but I like soft light. The button that turns it on is on the floor so keep that in mind when you’re placing it. It’s also not very tall, so it might not look great in a room with tall ceilings." —Jenn

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    12. A milky glass modern floor lamp *so* elegant, don't be surprised when your coworkers aren't able to take their eyes off it during your next video meeting.

    Promising review: "In love with this lamp! At first, I was skeptical about the floor push turn on, but I actually prefer it now. It' great when coming in and your hands are full — just use your foot to turn it on and the light FILLS the room. Very bright, so if you don't want it so bright you may want to only use two or three bulbs. The gold and black leaves are perfect for my room decor. I couldn't be happier with this purchase!" —GC

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "Gorgeous, elegant, and is perfect for my very dim living room. My living room has no lamp on the ceiling and has very little lighting in the area, this does the job. I might purchase another one to have even more brightness!" —nathalia porras
