Some common types of Floor Lamps, ranging from traditional to modern lamps, are listed here:

1. Torcherie

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.

2. Club lamps

Another type of the club lamp has adjustable height too, with a glass tray inserted at table height level. This tray can be used for storing stuff or displaying showpieces that make the lamp serve decorative purposes as well.

The head of a six way Floor Lamps 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.

4. Tower lamp

These are generally single pieces lamps that have multiple lights placed around its body. Due to their structure, these lamps are visually appealing even when they are not powered up. They resemble a sculpture diffusing light through its translucent body. The shade covers the entire lamp and has some natural scene painted on it.
