An arc lamp can be found in transitional and contemporary styles. It usually has a weighted base and a long arm in the shape of an arc. This lamp is especially useful with sectionals and modular furniture. These lamps are also a good option to use in spaces where you cannot place a table to hold a lamp.
So much for function. The arc floor lamp is also used for the way it looks, especially in a modern interior. Arc lamps are also designed with multiple lights.
NOVA Lighting's Contour Contemporary Arc Floor Lamp combines metal and wood for a contemporary look. The cylindrical base is dark wood, with the polished chrome metal rising from it in an arc. The shade is in polished chrome also, and holds a 100Watts incandescent bulb. The light can be controlled with a dimmer switch. The height can be adjusted from 87" - 92" while the width is 60". The shade is 13" in diameter.
