Floor lamps do provide some safety concerns. The heavy tops are susceptible to toppling over, causing damage to the lamp and possibly its surroundings. Additionally, most torchiere lamps use halogen bulbs, which become extremely hot while in use.
A torchiere is a type of floor lamp which has an upturned shade, casting light onto the ceiling of a room. The light reflects off the ceiling and effectively lights the entire room. A torchiere uses either fluorescent or halogen light bulbs.
Through banning the bulb, we can punch a welcome hole in our total energy consumption, and reduce energy bills. Yet, to make a real difference further change must follow.
