- * Unique Eiffel Tower-inspired base
- * Metal with smooth red or white finish
- * Comes with lamp shade
This Eiffel Tower-inspired floor lamp adds a unique mix of Parisian souvenir nostalgia and self-aware modernist appeal to any room. Its metal base is a kind of visual pun, playing on the resemblance between the famous landmark Eiffel Tower in Paris and a common form of floor lamps popular in mid-century modern design. Turns out good old Gustave Eiffel’s carefully-engineered structure also looks great supporting a cylindrical cloth lamp.
This floor lamp from the Euro Style Collection stands just under 65 inches tall, or 165 cm if you’re going to use the authentic “Euro-style” measurement. This puts it at the perfect height to use as an accent lamp next to a sofa or sectional.
It looks just right paired with mid-century modern or Scandinavian modern furniture. It also looks right at home next to authentic art nouveau or rococo-revival couches, divans and chairs.
A triumph of modern engineering and design, the Tour Eiffel was compared to the Pyramids of Egypt in terms of the grandeur of its achievement. Stretching upwards nearly 1000 ft into the sky, it was the tallest man-made structure in the world for some forty years after its completion, and it very much stole the show at the 1889 Universal Exhibition where it made a lasting impression on Thomas Edison, who presented Gustave Eiffel with a phonograph. With this floor lamp, Eiffel’s design can finally come together with Edison’s most famous invention. If you have fond memories of Paris, or are longing to travel there someday, this lamp gives you your own tribute to the famous Eiffel Tower right in your own office or living room.
