When making your next lighting purchase, make sure to consider floor lamps. Their versatility regarding placement makes them an excellent choice in lighting. Floor lamps outdo table lamps in so many ways. A traditional table lamp provides wonderful light for a raised surface like a desk, table, or nightstand, but you are limited in its placement to these raised surfaces. A floor lamp can stand alongside a desk or table and provide a wonderful light source. Many floor lamps have flexible necks to provide expanded functionality and can be adjusted to brighten any raised surface, wall, or an entire room.
Floor lamps come in an incredible number of styles nowadays including the contemporary, funky and traditional pieces. It will really just depend on your personal preference and your home's overall look. Many homeowners prefer tiffany style floor lamps but if you are more into retro then find one that suits your needs. Just make sure that the floor lamp you buy will be meeting all the necessary safety guidelines so not only will you enjoy the lamp but also be on the safe side.
The floor lamp's switch location should also be a determining factor. It should be convenient for the user. These switches sometimes come in touch-on switches, remote control dimmer or a rotating switch. Decide on your preference and check if it is working properly.
Antique lamps have certain elegance when displayed inside a room. In certain features of home design, a piece that projects an unknown past will usually spark the imagination and will typically be a subject of conversation when friends visit. Nowadays, manufacturers try to imitate this image by emulating ornamental approach towards antique furniture.
Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers' own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. The electrical components, the fabric shades and the painted finishes often need restoration but most were made with such fine quality, that they are a much better value than brand new high end lamps that sell for many hundreds of dollars. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.
These lamps are ideal for lighting a living space. With just a ceiling light, your lighting effects will be limited to bright or dark lights. With the help of floor lamps, you can illuminate areas of the room with more flexibility. For instance, you can focus onto a specific painting and can readily transfer the spotlight into another piece of art. This piece can also be an attractive piece of furniture itself.
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.
