Murray Feiss Lighting Floor Lamp and Torchiere Review

Updated on January 13, 2015

Floor Ligthing

With floor lamps and torchieres Murray Feiss branch into a different area of interior design and lighting. Whereas table lamps can be considered as complimentary objects – mainly due to their small size and portability – the taller variations emerge as stand-alone lights impressive and sophisticated enough to rival and counter-balance such mid-size furniture items as closets and mirrors.

Interestingly, both titular categories retain the qualities that define tables lamps. Their inherently narrow structure renders them relatively easy to relocate – an important feature for homemakers who love to experiment.

Additionally, their small volume makes them a suitable temporary lighting solution for nearly every setting: if needed, a floor lamp will illuminate the foyer, dinette, library, or the hall. When off, a torchiere can function as a miniature decorative column.

In terms of design, this department avoids most of the wild experimentations evident in table variations, opting instead for the classic structure of a long stem and a shade on top. In some of the more elaborate models, the stem splits into several thinner trunks, and adds on filigree scroll-work.

  • Castalia collection takes a liberal approach to the stem, breaking it into four parts that enclose an air pillar within the resulting frame. It's a sophisticated an festive design with a sliver leaf finish and scavo glass for the upward looking shade. Amalfi Sunrise lights shows a similar aesthetic, but employs gold leaf and shantung fabric for the stem and canopy.

  • Venetian Glass floor lamp provides a clean, modern alternative: classic 50s industrial look that results from a mix of nickel, marble, fluted glass, and shantung, colored in white and blue. A surprising departure from the periodical style lamps Murray Feiss usually offer.

  • Conservatory takes a step back in time to pre-industrial era, but just: this height-adjustable lamp collections reminds of early pipework, and features and distinctive ninety degree break; polished nickel and heirloom bronze finish for the body, kraft paper for the shade.

  • Kolton derives ideas from urban styles (particularly French), and exhibits unorthodox square and rectangular shapes. Though clearly contemporary, this collection retains something timeless and classic, and resembles street lights.
