Floor lamps are a staple of interior home decor, offering not only functionality but also making a design statement through the type of lamp selected, the materials used, the positioning of the lamp within the room- even the choice of light bulbs has an impact on the mood and ambience of a room.

Lighting has such power to transform a room, and can have such a tremendous effect on our moods. And while bulbs and brightness surely have a lot to do with it, we think that the placement of a stylish floor lamp- whether it be a traditional, modern, vintage-inspired or industrial-can improve the look of a room whether it’s on or off.
A torchiere is one of the most popular and recognizable types of floor lamps. The name is derived from the French word for “torch,” and it is identifiable by its upright, torch-like shape, with the lighting fixture pointing upward at the end of a column. Torchiers do not take up or require a lot of floor space, and the unobtrusive shape may have a lot to do with their popularity. The other advantage that a torchiere has is its ability to provide general light. The shape directs light up at the ceiling, where it diffuses into a pleasing general light that covers the room.
A club lamp, another ubiquitous style, is a stick lamp designed for area lighting. As with a torchiere, you can buy a club lamp in any style. The components are a base, a stick or pole and a shade that softens light radiating light out of the sides. Several of the following lamp styles are variations of this simple club lamp design. A club lamp usually has one 3-way socket or a twin socket operated by a pull chain.
Six-Way Floor Lamp
The six-way floor lamp (sometimes called a mogul lamp) can provide a tremendous amount of light as it uses a centre three-way bulb surrounded by as many as three additional bulbs, which can all be used simultaneously or separately as needed. These lamps are great for lighting up big rooms.
Down Bridge Floor Lamp
A down bridge floor lamp has the light directed downwards, and as such is a good reading or task lamp. It is excellent for directing a pool of light onto your project or page. It is an excellent choice for positioning next to an armchair. The socket and shade are directed at an angle, and often you will find the shade threaded around the bulb socket.
The floor lamps that you want should have proper earth and other safety precautions, especially when you have them made from bronze, nickel and other materials. This is because these materials are good conductors of electricity and any leakage could lead to short circuits and also unwanted accidents.
When it comes down to which type of lamp gives off the most light, we would say a tripod or curved style lamp is the best. You want to have a lamp that shines a light into your space from multiple directions, not just one.
