Brass Floor Lamps for the Living Room, Bedroom, or Office: The beauty of brass endures with brass floor lamps. Typically, the fixed arm lamps or the ones with fabric lampshades work well for general lighting and task lighting. Some of the adjustable arm floor lamps or swing arm floor lamps may work best as a reading lamp if the shade is metal. The more expensive floor lamps are typically solid brass whereas the less expensive lamps are plated in brass or some other metal alloy. Some of our top name brands include Wildwood Lamps, Frederick Cooper, Uttermost, and Decorative Crafts.
