The primary purpose of task floor lamps is to aid or enhance your ability to do the activities that you wish to do. They tend to have unobtrusive designs that emphasize a few characteristic features. The heads or diffusers are often adjustable, and tend to throw precisely-directed beams to reduce spillage and glare.
The character of your task floor lamp and the way it complements or contrasts your decor are both factors to consider when selecting the perfect light. For a task floor lamp that multitasks with you, consider Waldmann Lighting’s series of freestanding lights and floor task lights, which uses available accessories to provide a small tabletop and even a lectern-like holder for your magazine or small book.
