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.
Choose the proper height. A floor lamp's light should fall in a way that's useful, not invasive or glaring. If you place a very tall one next to your sofa, the glare from the bulb underneath might be annoying and not conducive at all to socializing in a calm environment. Make sure the lamp's light is diffused nicely, in the proper direction; selecting a piece with a flattering shade will help.
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.
