Here’s another prime example of how to mix different types of lighting (directional vs. ambient): You’ll notice that the floor lamp in the room above falls under the "ambient" category because the fabric lampshade would delicately diffuse light around the space. This lights a room more thoroughly, as opposed to the task lamp on the desk. The hard metal shade means no light can escape except for in the direction it’s pointing (hence, directional lighting). These are really great lamp types for reading, working, doing anything hobby-ish. The light is strong and bright right where you need it (and basically nowhere else). You’ll want to be sure this type of lamp is low enough (or can be directed down) that it doesn’t blind you.
Torchiere floor lamp looks like an inverted lampshade at the top hence illuminating light up instead of down. These types of corner floor lamps comes in different styles, from modern to traditional making them fit in any home.The light provided by torchiere floor lamps bounces off the ceiling providing a nice diffused general light. They have a heavy base, a pole and a shade on top. The inverted light lends drama and elegance to a room.
