Nothing alters our perception of an area like light. It can augment a room, change its ambiance and shift the way we view our decor — from the paintings on the wall, to the reading chair in the corner. Yet not everyone wants to carve out a skylight, add an additional window or install overhead lighting. For these people, a floor lamp is the obvious answer.
