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.
Having the right decorative table lamps is very important as you will need to use them as well as have them look great. You will need to look around at your other furniture and then decide what will look good with the existing decor. You can get lamps in many different sizes, shapes and styles so you can choose one that fits well with the room. You can have very traditional style lamps that will look great alongside your original furniture. Very modern contemporary lamps will stand out and be noticed.
When looking at antique lamps make sure you check the condition before even plugging them in. The trouble areas are generally at either end of the cord. Frayed or even slightly nicked cords should not be used. If you are not confident as to whether they are safe or not, do not plug them in! If you do not feel qualified to repair the lamp, find a professional to do this for you. Most likely they will do it for the cost of a cord or very cheap.
