Just as H. G. Wells predicted, the ENTIRE WORLD (of male living spaces) has been invaded by 3-legged monsters with glowing heads. Type into any search engine ‘cool male living space’ and, sure enough, there they are, lurking in the background… I believe the correct term for them is ‘mid-century modern’ which essentially means they look like they might start walking off….
Errm, not quite, check our mid-century modern guide for more info on the style.
Okay, that top left one actually looks like a sentinel – if Apple or Amazon start selling you one of those be very afraid (especially if you are conservative). These are just some of the results when looking up ‘cool man spaces’. So there it is, if you want your manly-man space to be defined as cool in 2021, then you will need to purchase some kind of War of the Worlds-esque floor lamp.

This is one of the more affordable tripod lamps to be found. Sleek and stylish, it would suit any bachelor pad, and really does give off a cool mood light (see Amazon user images above). A couple of reviews did mention that it arrived with broken parts, however being fully refundable, and having a plethora of other positive reviews, should put you at ease.

Metal Retro Studio Tripod Floor Lamp
I love the look of these lamps. At at a generous price, they really provide value for money compared to some of the ridiculous $1000+ versions of these lamps, from outlets such as Ikea. Other than providing light, these interesting lamps will ‘accent’ any room (hipster slang for ‘make it cooler’).

The 20,0000 Leagues Under The Sea-looking nautical tripod lamp would be perfect for the living room, office, reading corner, bedroom or submarine. It just looks so damn cool.

Thor Nautical 1950’s Hollywood Studio
This vintage styled lamp comes with free shipping in the US. Some of the reviews which have photos of the lamp in action are worth checking out. Although, there aren’t many reviews, however, the high best seller rank is a good indication of quality. This lamp excels when it comes to mood lighting and doubles as a cool centrepiece, or conversation starter. Additionally, this style of lamp would go well with these awesome pillows.
Catalina Lighting Metal Floor Lamp
This is the only tripod floor lamp on our list which has some shelves on it. It would look nice with some plants on it, or perhaps use it for an alarm clock of whatever. Oh, it also has the Amazon’s Choice sticker, and it’s not a bad price either. It is constructed from a sturdy metal body with matte black finish, with a beige linen shade.

Minimalist Black Lamp
This affordable lamp, has a sleek and minimalist style. It’s the kind of imperial-looking lamp you might find in Darth Vader’s office – we’re talking vintage Vader, not nihilistic millennial ‘Crylo Ren’ Vader. You can also purchase a mini version of the lamp for your bedside table or side tables. Speaking of side tables…

Brightech Jaxon Tripod
This contemporary tripod floor lamp will, apparently, work best in, quote, ‘vintage, retro, mid century or traditional décor’. What the hell does that look like? We don’t know but this lamp, which uses an LED light, is in neutral colors so would probably suit any kind of decor.

The Eclipse – Contemporary Style LED Tripod Lamp
What the hell is that? This is the wildcard of the selection, I had to double check that this was actually a light. I’m still not sure. This is a super cool accent, mood light. It will not illuminate the entire room. This is a real accent piece, if you want to stand out, GET THIS. It is very affordable too, which is unusual given it’s look, it looks much more expensive than it is! You could probably sneak one into the Lourve, and a hundred art snobs would give it a 5-star review.
