If you’re looking for a floor lamp solely for decorative purposes, all you need to worry about is choosing a design that suits your interior style and fits the space it’s intended for. A large statement floor lamp is the perfect way to fill an empty corner in a spacious, open-plan zone, while smaller living rooms or bedrooms will require sleek, minimal styles that don’t take up too much floor space.
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.
