    Our Favorite Living Room Floor Lamps

    I’ve been wanting a floor lamp in our living room for a while, and I finally took some time to do some shopping to find the perfect one for this space. I ended up finding one at World Market that had recently been discontinued, but I was lucky and got one of the last ones! I love how it looks in our living room and ties in with all of the other black accents.
