Types of Floor Lamps

Types of Floor Lamps

Not every floor lamp is the same. In fact, the light from a classic console floor lamp feels and acts completely different than the light from a more contemporary arcing floor lamp, torchère, or multiple light-source floor lamp. Floor lamps can also have additional features, such as shelving to help meet your needs. Here are the different types of floor lamps you may encounter.

Console Floor Lamps

A console floor lamp is what most people recognize as a traditional floor lamp. A tall pole typically extends up from a base that’s often geometric or round. A shade casts down light from a single bulb.

Torchère Floor Lamps

A torchère floor lamp looks like a console floor lamp from the ground up to the light source. Then an inverted lampshade pushes light upward instead of toward the floor.

Multiple Light-Source Floor Lamps

As with most other floor lamps, a multiple light-source floor lamp relies on a base and a long pole. Light, however, comes from “arms” that twist up and out of the base, enabling you to direct light in many directions.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

The floor lamp that works for your neighbor may not work for you. Because floor lamps are design elements as well as sources of task lighting, they must be evaluated for both style and performance. Before you make a purchase, take into account these considerations, including adjustability, dimmers, material, color, light source, efficiency, and style.

Adjustability

Floor lamps are more adaptable to various furniture arrangements and height requirements if their height can be adjusted.

Dimmers

The ability to adjust the brightness of the light source impacts how often you use your floor lamp. In the absence of a dimmer, look for three-position switches that allow changes in brightness.

Material and Color

Material and color often work hand in hand to create floor lamps that are showstopping focal points or clever elements that recede into the decorating background.

Energy Efficiency and Light Source

For easy bulb replacement—and to ensure you are saving every possible penny —review the type of bulbs your floor lamp requires.

Style

The style of your floor lamp should fit your space. Take into account the lamp’s lines, patterns, textures, and composition and how they work to complement the room before making a final decision.
