Buffet Lamps come in a variety of colors and designs. Also known as console lamps, they are about seven or eight inches at the base with a height of twenty-six inches to thirty inches. Some are as tall as thirty-six inches.
Table lamps, which typically range from 30" to 36" in height, are the most popular lighting style and have multiple applications for decorative or task lighting. A table lamp typically diffuse light either downward for task lighting or upward as well as outward for soft ambient lighting.
Usually ranging in height from 60" to 72", floor lamps typically diffuse light either downward for task lighting or upward and outward for soft ambient lighting. Decorative as well as functional, floor lamps are also used as an important design element to bring together any room in the home.
Typically ranging from 72" to 78" in height, torchieres direct light upward to create ambient or environmental lighting. A torchiere works by emitting much of its light toward the walls and ceiling, thereby creating a uniform light throughout a room. Torchiere floor lamps are available in styles that use incandescent bulbs for a softer glow as well as halogen bulbs to emit a whiter and brighter light.
Chandeliers are characterized by a number of extended arms, and suspending beautifully from the ceiling. No longer just for a formal dining room, chandeliers come in a variety of styles, finishes and design options that can add comfort and distinction to any room, including the living room, great room, media room, kitchen, and foyer.
Wall Sconces. From a single arm to an extravagant multi-light fixture, sconces can be used in just about any area of the home, where its effects can range from casting a subtle to dramatic glow.
