Sturdiness. Today's floor lamps, such as Tiffany stained glass floor lamps, are much sturdier than floor lamps of the past. For example, in the past, floor lamps were notorious for tipping over easily, thus creating a fire hazard. However, today's floor lamps must meet something called the UL "tipability standard," requiring their bases to be heavy enough.
In general, a floor lamp serves many purposes in addition to being considered as a very beautiful piece of furniture. As functional piece of furniture, a floor lamp is a solid choice. As a versatile choice of lighting, the floor lamp is excellent. As a stunning piece of art, it is incomparable. In other words, floor lamps are a magnificent piece of furniture that can greatly add pleasure and warmth in your everyday life.

This has the effect of offsetting the light by about 14-18" from the upright standard at the same time lowering it so that it is closer to the reading material or work project. The result is an excellent reading lamp or work lamp which places the light bulb very near the task at hand. Many of these Bridge Arm Floor Lamps have convenient pull chains which hang below the bottom of the lamp shade for ease of operation.
