Lamps have been around for thousands of years. From rudimentary copper bowls that use simple wicker sticks and oil to the wide range of contemporary light sources, floor lamps have undergone different stages of technical and aesthetic evolution. Today's floor lamps extend beyond just lightening up homes and business establishments. Contemporary floor lamps now assume a functional role in providing accent, ambience, or character to a particular room or space. This role makes floor lamps one of the most popular fixtures among interior designers, landscape artists, homeowners and building administrators.
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.
Intelligently selected and installed lamps are capable of do wonders with any bathroom. Lamps in combination with additional lights can create a quiet corner of the room for board games. lamps in the shape of a woman or a flower vase will make room in the bedroom of Princess, and lamps unique form of musical motifs can be used to create colorful and unusual living for a family of musicians.
