Nelson Pear Floor Lamps

Elevation and plan drawings of the small and medium sized Nelson Pear Floor Lamps with dimensions for heights and diameters

The Nelson Pear Floor Lamp is designed with a thin tube leading up to a flattened pear shape shade with a circular flush base. Designed by George Nelsen in 1952, the lamp is meant to be lightweight and is often paired with the complementary Nelson Cigar Floor Lamp. As part of the Nelson bubble lamps collection, it was meant to mimic the silk-covered lamps of Sweden. In order to be cost effective, the lamp was created through the use of a translucent white plastic spray developed by the U.S. military for World War II.

Nelson Pear Floor Lamps range in heights from 52.5”-57.5" (133 -146 cm).

Floor lamps are tall freestanding light fixtures that can be easily rearranged within a space. Typically supported by a tall pole inserted into a weighted base, floor lamps are commonly used in residential settings as an essential and functional component of a living room or reading room layout.
