You have a particular need for a standing lamp for the terrace. It all depends on the type of terrace you have.
A terrace plays the same role in an apartment that a patio or lawn does in a house. Terraces are usually covered from the above and safe from rain water, which is why many people put items on their terraces that they wouldn’t put in a garden, like rugs etc.
Terraces present to you a great opportunity to customize the exterior of your apartment according to how you want to present yourself and your aesthetic to the world. This means that your terrace is the extraverted space of your home or apartment.
If you have a terrace that gets affected by rain or snow, you should opt for a standing lamp for the terrace that was made for outdoor usage. However, if your terrace or courtyard is safe from weather problems, you can even go with something that was for indoor usage.
