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.
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.
Modern floor lamps are particularly useful. You can adjust the lighting intensity and length of the tripod, changing the direction of light in a desired direction. Some models can even vary at will the shape of the lamp. Floor lamp with shade create a soft, diffused light. This effect is achieved by using special light-scattering materials: rice paper, cotton, blown glass or acrylic plastic. Designer lampshades, by contrast, creates a concentrated light to target the desired coverage areas.
