Why you'll love this floor lamp

The A811 Floor Light was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1965 for Finnish brand Artek and is as elegant today as it was at the time of its original construction. It features a beautiful, asymmetric shade made from hand turned, white painted steel strips which prevent glare by diffusing light evenly. This is elevated on a curved, slender base that's covered in leather and features either a brass or nickel plated brass tip.

By combining a timeless, simplistic shape with luxury materials, the light is given an opulent yet pared-back appeal- it has an essence of grandeur without being overly ostentatious. Suitable for a variety of interiors from traditional to modern, A811 will illuminate any dull space with its soft, warm glow.
