Floor Lamps and Torchieres buying guide

Floor lamps add height to an empty space and balance a room decor. Torchieres are ornamental floor lamps with an inverted shade directing light beam upwards to ceiling. The ceiling in turn acts as a reflector to reflect and magnify the focussed beam to spread across a wide area. 

Types of Floor Lamps

Floor lamp are still produced to reflect an array of period styles such as: Art Deco, Contemporary, Country, Craftsman, Mission, Modern, Traditional, Retro, Rustic and Tropical. The different styles create an aura specific to the style and help us recreate spaces of the era. They are well suited for ambient lighting, up lighting, spot lighting artwork, and task lighting. The textures and finishes that floor lamps feature are chrome, glass, metal, Plexiglas, wood and wrought iron. Lantern type floor lamps and the counter balance or swing arm design are versatile designs. The shade styles can also be mixed and matched with the styles of bases.
