How Many Different Kinds of Light Fixtures Are There? #6 Floor Lamps

Okay we've been on the walls, ceiling and the table.  (Not that I'm done with any of those) Let's go to the floor.  Yep, we're talking about floor lamps.  Floor lamps can point down or they can point up, when the light points up this is a called a torchiere.  Had to look up that spelling... Torchiere is a french word meaning torch.  Huh sounded french to me, now I know why.  I give floor lamps 3.5 out of 5.  Lots of variety, good function, but how many do you actually see anymore?  Tell me what you think.....  I added the .5 because you can really add some fun with these!
