Torchiere Lamp Complements
Pairing your torchiere floor lamps
Torchiere floor lamps with reading lights are a smart addition to offices and living rooms alike, and they’re a lovely bedside accent for late-night reading. Place a torchiere lamp next to your sofa or armchair, or simply add it to a dim corner, next to a staircase or beside a desk as you please. Create a cohesive presentation by placing torch lamps next to table lamps in similar finishes, or try a mixed-metal approach by choosing a two-tone design that’s sure to turn heads. Balance a floor lamp torchiere with smaller lighting silhouettes on neighboring accent tables, or place a torchiere beneath artwork or gallery walls for a luminous display.
What to look for in the best torchiere floor lamps
When choosing a torchiere floor lamp, it’s important to consider the dimensions and layout of its intended placement as well as its overall style. Keep floor lamps in proportion to the room so as not to overpower small spaces, and decide whether you want the lamp to create ambience, provide task lighting or both. If you need directional light, you’ll want a design with reading lights or adjustable gooseneck arms that accommodate your needs on demand. Similarly, adjustable frames are a great choice if you’re indecisive about a room’s layout. Finally, look for styles that complement your home’s decor. A Tiffany glass shade adds a colorful touch of luxe to an eclectic room, while oil-rubbed bronze finishes, decorative leafy vine accents and seeded glass offer their own charisma.
Q: How are torchieres different from other floor lamps?
A: A torchiere is a tall electric floor lamp that’s designed to enhance a room with upward light. Many of these decorative styles boast candlestick or candelabra silhouettes, while several are made with upholstered or glass shades for diffused light. These floor lamps add ambience to any space with indirect light and soft illumination.
Q: Do torchiere lamps come with downlights or reading lights?
A: Many of our torchiere lamps do feature downlights or reading lights, although some do not. Multi-directional reading lights and fully adjustable gooseneck arms are a wonderful choice for reading nooks and workspaces, as they allow you to shine a spotlight when and where you need it for enhanced visibility, convenience and comfort.
Q: Can torchiere lamps be used for task lighting or are they mostly for ambient lighting?
A: Many torchiere lamps can be used for task lighting. Several of our styles are made with multi-directional lights and adjustable arms that can instantly provide ample illumination right where you need it.

A: At Bellacor, many of our torchiere lamps do come in adjustable heights to better suit your lighting demands. Many of these floor lamps are also made with multi-directional downlights to further accommodate reading nooks and work spaces. Some torchieres are designed with sturdy column bases and fixed heights instead, so be sure to double-check an item’s specifications to ensure it meets your needs.
A: Not all torchiere lamps are dimmable, but many designs do include this popular feature for enhanced customization and ambience.
