Floor lamps are interesting pieces of furniture, providing a variety of shapes, build materials, and heights. No matter what kind of style you have in the room, you’ll be able to find a complementary floor lamp. You can pick from ambient or task styles of lighting with a floor lamp. An ambient floor lamp spreads light over a wide area, using an upward facing light or multiple lights. A task floor lamp aims the light downward into a specific area for reading and other close-up work. For task lighting, height is the primary factor to consider when comparing floor lamps. For example, many people use the floor lamp primarily while sitting on a sofa for reading. If so, you’ll want the bottom of the shade to be just above eye level as you’re sitting.
