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.
These lamps have come a long way from the earlier dome shaped or conical stuff commonly seen at homes and offices across the country. And more modern lamps come with dimmers that do not require switching off the light. You can adjust the light according to your needs while working on the table.
There are tons of table lamp options on the market and off the market these days. Rather than describe all of the lamps in the world (who would read that much) we have decided to break things down into four categories of table lamps. We did all of that just for you to get a feel for things. No, no need to thank us, just doing our job.
