Excerpt from The best way to Decorating your room with Floor Lamps :
NEXT TO A ’CHAIR’ OR ’SOFA’
This may be the most obvious placement for a floor lamp. Whether you're shedding light on an entire ensemble of sofas and chairs or just a single armchair in a quiet corner, having a well-lit seating area makes for a useful and welcoming space. This arrangement also makes it convenient to run the electrical cord beneath a sofa or chair so it's not an eyesore or tripping hazard. You can use a torchiere floor lamp with an upturned shade to provide more ambient light or a club floor lamp with a traditional downward shade to give off more localized illumination.
IN THE ’CORNER’ OF YOUR ’ROOM’
A floor lamp in a corner is the perfect setup if you're adding secondary lighting to a room with an existing ceiling light or just want to keep your lamp out of high-traffic areas. If floor lamps are your room's only source of illumination, then consider using multiple lamps in different corners to make sure the whole room is comfortably lit. Multiple lamps will also reduce shadows and bring an even feel to your space. Torchiere lamps lend themselves well to stand-alone positions like this one.
Highlighting a Specific Element
’HIGHLIGHTING’ A SPECIFIC ELEMENT
You can also use a floor lamp to emphasize a certain piece of furniture or decor, like an accent chair or coffee table. Place a club-style floor lamp with a downward-facing shade right next to a piece of furniture or decor to shed direct light on it. An arc floor lamp is a great option for highlighting decor because the base can stay in a corner or by a sofa while you position the shade to illuminate your piece of choice.
