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.
However when you use unusual materials you will also create different types, sometimes unusual also, of lamp shades, this is particularly true if you choose to possess unique lamps. For example, wall-mounted sconces might be shaded with a punched tin rectangle that will create dazzling designs of light on the reverse wall. Library table lamps, on the other hand, could truly use classical green lamp shades, whilst delicate, handmade lamp shades may cover small, metal lumps.
Form refers to the sheer aesthetics of a lamp whereas function refers to how much illumination the lamp actually lends to a space. Lamps, of course, vary in size, shape and style. The first step in selecting the perfect lamp for any room is making sure that the sheer size of the lamp matches the contours and dimensions of the room's interior.
Other than the traditional looking lamps, you will find many modern floor lamps featuring interesting patterns and designs. One such variety is the glass tray lamp, which has a tray positioned at height level of a table. This kind of lamp takes less space and is very handy as well. You can even get club lamps with adjustable heights. This sort of floor lamp is primarily used for area lighting. For adding a different look, you can pick the tower lamps. These not only give out ambient light, but also provide a sculpture like look. This makes such lamps look very artistic, and you will also bump into enormous varieties in this kind of line up.
