A torchiere lamp is typically a floor lamp that casts its light upwards to the ceiling where it bounces off to cast an effective ambient light source. These types of lamps generally look impressive with their strong column and decorative diffuser and they have been the inspiration behind the smaller torchiere table lamps.
These lamps are a direct replication of the larger floor lamps but on a smaller, more petite scale. The ambient light is just as effective and you will most commonly use your torchiere table lamp as a background illumination source.
When you are looking for a nice torchiere lamp you should be thinking about the material that the base is made from because this forms a major part of the look of the lamp. The lamp shade will also be important although when the light is on, because the illumination will be projecting upwards, the focus of the eye will be drawn away from the lamp. That being said, the height of the lamp is going to put it right in front of the eye, so a decorative bowl will play a big part in helping to set the mood.
