Arco Style Floor Lamp

George Kovacs Polished Chrome Arc Floor Lamp - $150 (Silver Spring / Kensington)

Here is an imitation of the famous Arco Lamp designed by Achille and Pierre Giacomo Castiglioni. There are many imitations of this lamp, and although this one is not an exact copy, it is fairly close in appearance (with the exception of the base) and is certainly a high quality reproduction. This one is "by" George Kovacs and produced by Minka. It is coated in polished chrome throughout, and has a white marble base. A new one like this can be bought for around $350, and other similar reproductions and variations are out there (see CB2 for example). You can also still buy new licensed originals for $2,300 and up.

Overall, if you like the style of this piece and are not looking to shell out $2300 for an original, this is a great bet. Price is $150, which seems pretty reasonable overall. This would be a fantastic addition to your modern living room or study.
