On its launch in 1958, the CUBA floor lamp was described as “Somewhat exotic – for the otherwise slightly formal room, this new floor lamp is sure to add an atmosphere of warmer climes. The light is filtered beautifully through the wicker wound shade, which is supported by three black-lacquered legs.”

Nothing like CUBA had ever been seen in the IKEA range. But this somewhat different lamp was not made in the tropics, but far further north at the Armaturverken Croma AB lighting factory in Malmö.
