Floor lamps can also allow for more creative lighting of a living space. With just a ceiling light you are limited to bright or dark. Floor lamps can illuminate sections of a room, they can shift the visual focus onto a specific painting or piece of art, and floor lamps can themselves act as an attractive piece of furniture. With both antique and contemporary models available, there is undoubtedly a floor lamp to meet your needs.
A lamp must also fit the mood of a room and the environment. Each room must have a different from the others depending on the use of the room. A bedroom table lamp cannot be the same as an office table lamp. The colors of the two lamps must differ because one is meant for a cool sleeping mood while the other is meant for a bright office. A bedroom lamp should bear colors that will make a person feel relaxed and hence be able to unwind.
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.

Also, one must clearly understand the function of the room that the lamp is going to be placed in. The colors of the room also matter a lot in choosing the right style.
