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.
Typically more affordable than hardwired light fixtures, floor lamps are still not cheap. Extremely inexpensive styles are easy to spot (cheap-looking), and not recommended. For your investment, be sure to purchase a lamp that looks terrific and is equally functional in your home. Follow these expert tips for choosing and using them in your home.
The most common variety which has halogen bulbs cannot be right for everyone. These bulbs can be very bright and tire the eyes. These are definitely not recommended for the children. They cannot study for long hours without the eyes getting droopy and tired. Some times the glimmer and flicker of long use of the halogen lamp can be another strenuous factor to the eyes. This kind of light is very focused only on the text that is being read. The other areas of the desk remain dark, unless the other light is on in the room. When one is looking for desk lamps, the main issue is the bulb and the light it throws on the study material and work at hand. The design and features come second. The utility stands over the décor part.
