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.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading, an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand, if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
When redecorating your home, there are many different items of furniture that you can use to make your home look and feel fantastic. If you have the right type of lighting, your home will feel warm and inviting and having decorative table lamps can do this. If you choose the right type of lamps, they can finish your room off and ensure that you have lighting that is useful as well decorative. There are many different designs and styles to choose from and which one you select will depend on your budget and taste.
