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.
Style and design will likely be the key factors for those who are looking to purchase lamps solely for the purpose of decorating their bedroom. Obviously, there are many styles of lamps out there and it's almost impossible to pinpoint which style (let alone lamp) is most suitable for you, your sense of style and the look of your bedroom. Despite what one's personal sense of style may be, the quality of the lamp is another important factor to consider when decorating. Obviously, the better the quality the more expensive it becomes so it's important to have the perfect balance between the two. To give the room a sense of warmth and elegance, I suggest looking at lamps with a nice bronze finish. They are often what vintage and antique lamps are made out of. For the more modern rooms, I recommended looking for ceramic lamps (sometimes made out of ivory also) as they are more than perfect that style of bedroom. Asian-inspired lamps (e.g Chinese and Japanese) are quickly becoming popular styles as they provide a real sense of culture and history. These lamps consist of an inner steel frames that gives the lamp shade a distinct Asian-style look.
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.
Conical, cylindrical and other forms on floor-, desk-, or table top-mounted along with suspended lamp designs tend to be the most common lamp globes and therefore are made in a wide array of materials. There are many different types of lampshades that you will see times that you will feel truly overwhelmed with the prospect of actually choosing a table lampshade, a floor, or a ceiling one. You can even generate lamp shades out of any useful material, like nut shells, paper that you can manually make, stained glass, or metal ribbon and form it right into a extremely practical lamp shade with shapes like a bell, curl, or even a drum. However, if you don't have the luxury of the time, try considering the following information and choose wisely for your own.
