Cant say Ive heard of that before, a floor lamp taking 12v bulbs, there would have to be a transformer inside.
If you look at the previous reviews it states that the bulbs are included.

Not unusual, quite the opposite in fact, plenty 12v floor lamps out there, the transformer in the base makes the lamp very stable due to the extra weight.
