Welcome to The Deep Dive, in which we search high and low for the best of the best products for every corner of your home, from modern chandeliers to vintage rugsNext up: floor lamps.

Lighting can make or break a room. The good kind—accent fixtures—sets the mood for romantic weeknight dinners, dims ultra-low for Netflix marathons, and makes it easy to read in bed. To add a ceiling light or wall sconce, you likely have to hire an electrician. For a table lamp, you need an empty surface, such as a nightstand. But a floor lamp? All it requires is a square foot of floor space—which most of us have.

Even better, it can illuminate any nook or cranny: where you read, where you work—even a dark hallway. If an area of your home could use a little sparkle, these nine affordable options (plus a few splurges) might just fit the bill.

Under $200

Give a corner a whimsical greenhouse look with a green tulip lamp, or light up your room from below with a futuristic terracotta orb.
