To avoid buyer's remorse you'll want to measure the square footage of the room before heading off to the store to make your purchase. You'll also want to consider where you'll be placing the lamp and the dimensions of any surfaces the lamp will be resting on.
Clear lamp bases have less visual weight. Wood and iron bases provide texture and richness. Crystal adds glamour to a room while painted porcelain will create a luxurious Old World feel. Moroccan lanterns have an exotic and international feel which coordinates well with most decor.
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.
For a floor lamp, make sure to measure the height of the space it will go in to and the maximum circumference the lamp can extend without interfering with other furniture or people. The circumference will be most useful when looking at the lamp shade. It also has to be near an outlet.
