Lamps Plus Tip: Adjustable floor lamps are a great boon to anyone who reads or does close work, but they can also be used to light an entire room for different situations -- lights closely for a group craft project, indirect lighting reflected off walls and ceilings create the mood for a party or help home theater fans see where the remote control went. Floor lamps can be adjustable for height, as well as angle, making it possible to move the same lamp from the bedroom (where it's hunkered down low to facilitate reading) to the living room (where it is extended to its full height over the sofa). These can also appeal to perfectionist decorators who want a floor lamp in just the right place -- which may not be one of the standard heights.
