Torchiere. This type is among the easily recognizable varieties of floor lamps. Torchieres are also called torch lamps and were already being used in Europe even as far back as the 17th century. The lighting source then were wax candles that were mounted on tall stands made of metal or wood. Today's version, of course, can be of any lamp type (wax candles, incandescent bulbs, fluorescent light, halogen bulbs, etc.) and any stand material (wood, metal, plastic, composites, alloys, ceramics, etc). Torchieres usually take up only a small space in the room, are shaped unobtrusively, and provide well-diffused lighting by radiating the lamp beams towards the ceiling. For these reasons, torchiere lamps are highly sought after by building owners who intend to optimize limited spaces or project a minimalist style in the interior design.
Table lamps are making a comeback. And if course right along with it is an increase in demand for table lamp shades. At one time, these lamps were very common, especially in the form of desk lamps. After all, there was loads of paperwork to be done. But them came the home computer and the paperless office. All of a sudden, there wasn't quite the need to table lamps and desk lamps anymore, except of course for decoration.
The highly sophisticated desk lamps available in the market today provide illumination minus the glare. To ensure this, choose lamps that cover the bulb properly. Depending on the purpose, you can choose a swivel headed desk lamp or go for the fixed type. Swivel headed types are more convenient if you need to change the direction and focus of the lights. Desk lamps come with various adjustments in the arms so you can elongate or reduce the length of the lamp as desired.
