Torchiere Lamp Shade

Need some extra light in your house? A torchiere lamp shade could be the practical but quirky solution that you were hoping for.

If you're not a hundred percent sure as to what it refers to, let's shine some light onto it. Derived from the French word for 'torch,' these lamp shades come in all sorts of shapes and sizes but they have two things in common: they rely on vertical, upright designs and they direct the light upwards.

Particularly popular in the 90s, torchiere lamp shades are a natural match for vintage and modern interiors. However, this most certainly does not mean that they can't work in other settings!

There are now lots of torchiere lamps in more contemporary designs too, so make sure you look for one that would complement your specific interiors.

First of all, you need to figure out what type of torchiere shade you're going to look for. Depending on where you're planning on placing it, you can either choose between table and floor lamps. If you already have one of these but you're hoping for a little makeover, you can find torchiere shades on their own, but don't leave it to guesswork: check that their hole matches your lamp model.

Think of how you're going to use your lamp, too!

If you're hoping for a reliable source of light (for example, by your reading nook or for some task lighting), look for translucent models that let the light filter through the lamp shade.

Alternatively, if you were after a dramatic ambience, choose opaque shades that result in a slightly dimmer effect.
