Torcherie. Despite being the most popular type of floor lamp, very few people recognize them as a Torcherie. A general lamp with a big luminous head and pole-like neck is the easiest way to identify them. They provide adequate light due to their design, while the open head directs light to the roof, dispersion from sides and bottom areas make them fit for everyday use. People can also add dimmers to add an aesthetic appeal to these lights. Prior to purchase, one needs to make sure that the neck is strong enough to support the weight of the head.
Touch lamps are an option too, operating without the clunky switches and providing a modern "touch" to a room. Simply switch them on and off with a touch. Many have various light emitting settings which can be cycled through in 3 or 4 touches, to help you get the degree of brightness that suits best.
Many contemporary chandeliers don't have the branched arms we think of in a classic lighting chandelier. Instead they have a central support holding up a central lighted area. This is typical of an art deco or craftsman style chandelier. Modern chandelier lighting with a central support are typically called pendant chandeliers. They can come in all sizes and shapes, from mini chandeliers to streamlined steel.
Victorian Chandeliers - You do not have to live in a Victorian mansion to add crystal or glass-drop chandeliers. In fact, if you have a formal dining area or baby grand piano, you can use a crystal chandelier for that area. If you have gracefully legged chairs and tables in your living area, crystal chandeliers can also fit. If you decorate in chintz and floral patterns, glass-drop chandeliers can offer the same feel as crystal without being quite as formal.
