Frequently Asked Questions About Floor Lamps


As a company that curates a collection of stylish floor lamps and table lamps, we field dozens of questions monthly about our products. You may not think that floor lamps (or lamps in general) are a complex topic, but they play a significant role in décor. Here’s what you should know about floor lamps if you’re beginning to decorate a room (any room!) in your house.


  1. Where can I buy floor lamps?

LuxuryFloorLamps.com is one of the best places to buy a floor lamp online! We provide hundreds of options. The type you select all will depend on the style you’re after:



  1. What is a torchiere lamp?

Customers are constantly curious about the torchiere lamp. The designs of other types of traditional floor lamps are fairly self-evident by their name. However, the torchiere lamp has a design that was inspired by classic floor candelabras and torches. This lamp design was originally introduced in France in the 17th century and utilized candlelight. We recommend this type of lamp if you want an accent lamp, or you need to increase the amount of light in a room overall. These lamps are not good choices for task lighting. 


  1. How do I keep my older floor lamps from leaning?

Floor lamps are designed to remain flat on the floor with flush bases. Yet, sometimes due to age or materials (wood, etc.) the base or floor may become warped over time. This will result in an uneven or leaning lamp. If you want to keep your floor lamp from leaning, you can invest in a shim. Shims are small thin wedges which keep lamps and furniture stable. Shims can be found at most hardware stores, or online of course!


  1. What type of light bulb should I use in floor lamps?

The type of light bulb you use is up to personal preference. No floor lamp mandates a halogen, incandescent, or LED bulb. That said, many people find that LED bulbs are preferred because they produce more light per wattage than other types of bulbs. They also produce more at a lower wattage, and they are highly energy efficient.


You may find that you prefer incandescent and halogen bulbs with your floor lamp, however, because they offer a warmer light color. You’re likely more used to them as they’re used in traditional lighting options. Just make sure you double-check that the bulb you select is compatible (size, heat, etc.) with the floor lamp!
