Floor lamps?

Did you ever see something that you thought was so ugly that it made you mad just looking at it?
OK, maybe I am overstating it but I had a headache (imagine that) and saw a few lamps that just bugged me. I have come to the realization that I prefer table lamps so the floor dwellers are at an immediate disadvantage when it comes to my opinion.
The first image is an offering from Horchow. I usually like Horchow but it looks like they tried to be RH for a while.
Here are the rest of the absurd lighting options I saw.

If you hate me get this for me

If have not gouged your eyes out yet, check out this one that takes aim but misses the equestrian chic look.

One last little bit of torture as I leave you chinoiserie gone wrong.

I am laughing at the horse. This is all just crazy. I guess it is really mass marketing a style and trying it to fit into too many spaces?

A lot of them are very busy. And I agree with Linda: the horse one is crazy and hilarious, LOL

The horse with the lampshade hat made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that, Kerry! And I think Horchow has great stuff and really horrifying stuff. Some of the bedding photos make me cringe.

I'm not a big fan of floor lamps and have yet to see any that I would even think about buying. I have to admit these are some of the worst examples I've ever seen! HAH

Haha. So funny! I don't know what it is about light fixtures. I think 90 percent of them are this ugly. It's hard to find a good light fixture.

They have to be kidding. Horchow knows better!
