This general definition works perfectly since any identification of an "antique floor lamp" is fairly useless without some time period designation normally in the form of circa 1905 which literally means "about the year 1905". So I will use the term antique floor lamp on this basis and often substitute it with the term vintage floor lamp. This discussion does not address modern reproductions of antique lamps which is another subject to itself.
Floor lamps may be intended for lighting while others may be built in with shelves or racks. Because of its flexibility, these lamps should be placed in areas where children will not trip on them. Probably the best place for them is in corners or to the sides of living room furniture.
Reduced eyestrain and glare. Many homes still use fluorescent lighting throughout their various rooms. Your eyes subconsciously pick up the flickering of such lights, increasing eyestrain and glare. While the light of a table lamp illuminates outwards, the light of a floor lamp illuminates downwards. This provides a broader area of light that is helpful for whatever activity you are doing.
