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.
Perfect lighting along with functionality and practicality are usually the most important features of a bedroom lamp for readers. The best lamps that cater to these needs are 'swing arm' lamps because they're built to allow the lamp head to move independently of the main body stand. While they can be used for reading purposes, they are perfectly suitable for many other tasks at night while in bed. For example, you can use it for writing on a notepad or knitting an article of clothing. The swing arm component of these type of lamps make it easy to spot the difference between them and the regular lamps. The swing arm component often have two horizontal bars (attached with a hinge) sticking from the lamp. This allows it to swing 360 degrees and to reach out to a certain length (depending on the lamps design).
The right choice of antique art deco lamps can bring a classy, warm feel to any room. Lamps are generally used to light rooms for functional, leisurely or simply decorative purposes. The kind of lamp installed also influences the feeling and the mood of the room considerably. There are many lamp styles and shapes available for you to pick for your room, and antique themed lamps are often a popular choice for their classy feel.
If you're going to use your lamp mainly for reading, you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn't trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps, you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light, a lampshade that's only one-fourth the base's height would be better.
