Why Choose a Modern Torchiere Lamps
The torch floor lamp is a classic design that has seen many compositions and functions throughout time. Like most modern floor lamps, the torchiere floor lamp can be as versatile in style and application as you need it to be and can fit in any room where indirect illumination fits the look and style of your room. Torchiere floor lamps have a unique way of illuminating a space. Its light source sits atop a long pillar shaped fixture that shines up towards the ceiling, capable of illuminating a whole room with a single fixture. Torchiere lamps can also be an elegant and affordable choice for anyone looking to add a touch of sophistication in their household where ceiling lights are not an option.
The best feature of torchiere lamps is their ability to brighten a whole space with only a single fixture. This allows your torchiere floor lamp to become a striking centerpiece that beckons attention not just with their tall glamourous classic structure but also with the bright wash of light that illuminates the whole room. Some torchiere lamps also feature an adjustable side light that can illuminate any areas not being lit by the upwards facing light, perfect for any room where a reading lamp is needed. Torchiere table lamps offer the same type of illumination with added portability and unique designs that resemble small torches or candle holders, making it a great center piece for any room with limited space.
What's the Difference between a Floor Lamp and a Torchiere Lamp?
While floor lamps and torchieres seem like one in the same, they do have some distinct differences that make them unique both in aesthetic and in how they emphasis your room’s lighting design.
Floor lamps are what you would use for task lighting while reading on the couch, knitting, any activity that requires a good amount of light. While a floor lamp helps to illuminate the task at hand, it also helps to prevent eye strain. Typically, floor lamps are adjustable, so you can reposition and aim the light wherever you need by moving the arms or the shade. Silhouette wise, floor lamps are tall and thin, with a heavier base that prevents them from tipping over.
A Torchiere lamp looks a lot like a floor lamp, but the main difference here, is function. Torchieres are best for providing accent lighting, rather than task lighting. Torchieres generally have a shade that points upward, so the light is illuminating the wall to the ceiling. They tend to be taller and more stately looking than a regular floor lamp.
