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.
Estate sales often produce some of the most horrific lamps you can imagine, and also some of the most interesting. I'm a big antiquer myself and spend a lot of time looking over some of the strangest lighting options known to man. Like the "legs" lamp in A Christmas Story these lamps can get pretty off the way. However, every so often you run across that beauty that you can't pass up.
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.
