Six way lamps. As the name suggests, a six way lamp can emit light in six different directions. This is possible due to light sources that are pointed in six different directions around the body of the lamp. The head of a six way floor lamp is very big and is generally placed at a height in order to facilitate illumination of large rooms. All the bulbs might not operate simultaneously; some floor lamps have the option to power up alternate bulbs when less light is required.
Another good thing to consider is the amount of energy your lamp will use. Electricity costs are higher than ever and every thing you can do to lower your energy bill will be very beneficial. If your lamp is just for decoration and not required to light large areas than you should consider buying a lower watt light bulb to put in this lamp. The latest trend in modern floor lamps has been to have softer light bulbs that just emit a faint glow. If your are using this lamp for reading or for lighting an area than you will want to consider buying a high watt light bulb that has the power to light a large area. Usually a reading floor lamp will require a light bulb of at least 120 watts but other lamps can have bulbs well below 120. Also I recommend that your go with a compact fluorescent light bulb as these are much more energy efficient and will last much loner than a normal light bulb.
