Portable Fixtures: Floor : This type of lighting is similar to the table fixture. It provides the extra light that is surrounded in that area. It's not used as an general lighting but more of an accent lighting. You can use it when you are trying to see more in the dark for reading or anything else.
Best Uses for Floor Lamps: 1. Reading light near a sofa or chair. 2. An overarching floor lamp that helps add overhead lighting and defines a space (especially helpful if you don't have built in ceiling lights!) 3. Brightening a dark corner of a room. 4 Adding visual interest and style by mixing the range of lighting in any space (a mix of overhead, high, low and natural is key!)
