My house was similar. There were only ceiling lights in kitchen & breakfast, dinning room, and middle of spiral staircase. All other major rooms in first and 2nd floors had no ceiling lights. First thing I added before even moving in was adding ceiling lights to every room. Floor lamps are just annoying as heck.
Same, except it's a condo with concrete ceilings so no chance of ever getting ceiling lights. I've seen a bunch of places like this.

If you need a temporary outlet you can attach one to the ceiling joists and grab power from the closest pull chain light in the basement. That's what I did as I needed an outlet for a treadmill.
