Best type of floor lamp for a room with no ceiling fixture

I just moved into a new apartment, and just now noticed my 9.5 x 10 living room has no ceiling fixture. This is probably due to the fact that I am in a building that is over 100 years old. I am looking for a floor lamp no more than $200 that will illuminate the entire room as best as possible. Should I go with with a torchiere, arch style, or different style of lamp?

That is strictly a personal preference question. What would you like ?

My mother uses a torchiere light in her sewing room. Since the light bounces off the white ceiling it's pretty even. The bulb wattage is high so investing in one with a dimmer is a plus.
