Grasshopper Floor Lamp

The Grasshopper Floor Lamp is designed with three legs that combine into one leaned arm which bends at the top for a cone shaped metal shade. Designed by Swedish immigrant Greta Grossman, the Grasshopper lamp was one of many furniture pieces which gained popularity when it was released in Los Angeles in 1948. The lamp is created out of a lithe frame with a conical shade, and comes in a variety of colors including black, red, and Andorra. Much like Greta herself, the Grasshopper lamp has become an iconic testament to the beginning of the single women’s liberation movement.

The Grasshopper Floor Lamp has an overall height of 49.25" (125 cm).

Common Questions
Common Questions
Where do you place floor lamps?
Floor lamps are versatile lighting fixtures that can be positioned within a space for a range of uses from the task lighting of a reading chair or sofa to providing accent lighting along a wall or corner of the room. Floor lamps should never be placed within or nearby the flow of traffic as they could be easily knocked over.
How do you light up a room with a floor lamp?
Floor lamps are designed with various lighting strategies that range from classic stationary accent fixtures to arched and adjustable fixtures, lighting trees, and torchiere (upward) lighting designs. Good room lighting should be flexible enough to achieve a range of moods and ambiances and no one fixture should be seen as a solve-all solution to lighting.
How tall should a floor lamp be?
Floor lamps should have an overall height of roughly 58”-64” (147-163 cm) based on the standard sitting height of a person on a couch or chair. The bottom of the floor lamp shade should be roughly at or above a person’s sitting eye level and should try to match the edges of similar lighting fixtures within the space.
