Nelson Cigar Floor Lamps

The Nelson Cigar Floor Lamp is designed with a thin tube leading up to an oval shaped bubble at the top and a circular flush base. Designed by George Nelson in 1952, the floor lamp is meant to be lightweight and complementary to the Nelson Pear Floor Lamp. The Nelson Cigar Floor Lamp is created from a lightweight steel skeleton, with a brushed metal base and a soft plastic bubble shade. Created to mimic the silk-covered lamps of Sweden, the design was accomplished through the use a translucent white plastic spray that was developed by the U.S. military for World War II.

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.
