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.
Available in different sizes, shapes, and illuminating power, floor lamps may be used to fully or just partially lighten a particular space in order to purposely generate a particular aesthetic or functional effect. Bulbs are usually adjustable in terms of output and angle of illumination and may even come in various colors.
Yes there are designer desk lamps also available. Like in case of other designs, one can get with adjustable necks. The lamp can be fixed at one single point with a long wire. It can be shifted around the table. One can also use regular bulbs instead of the halogen variety. The new varieties come with a soft focused glow that does not strain the eyes. Most students and business people are looking at appropriate desk lamps for various purposes. The most important features of the desk lamp are the on and off function with adjustable necks. Ideally a change of handy bulb is also recommended if there is a fuse. With these simple features working or studying can be an enjoyable experience.
