High quality, beauty and function were powerful influences on the makers of antique floor lamps. Many people are aware of their outstanding quality and beauty but completely surprised about the highly developed functional and technical characteristics. There are far too many examples to list here but I will mention a couple of the more important ones.
In conclusion, floor lamps have truly proven to be very useful and decorative pieces with a large selection of choices. With both traditional and contemporary designs available, there will undoubtedly be a floor lamp that will meet your standards.
Safety is also an important aspect. Inspect if the base of the lamp will be able to support itself and maintain the lamp's stability. This is especially important if there are pets and children inside the house.
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.
Of course there are many other kinds of antique floor lamps such as torchiere, two light, curved arm, swing arm, etc. Even the oldest and most dilapidated of these well built heirlooms can be brought back to life with some scrubbing, sanding, painting, rewiring and sometimes soldering or welding.
Not only are floor lamps more versatile in the traditional tasks assigned to desk lamps, but they also have distinctly different uses. Since a floor lamp illuminates both above and below, they are ideal for sitting rooms to both illuminate the room and the area where people are engaged in conversation. With the option of designs from gaudy to very minimalist, a lamp can be added to a room either as a stylistic addition or simply as a lighting upgrade.
When you hear the word "lamp" what image do you think of? You probably imagine that table lamp on your bed's nightstand, which sheds some light on your bedtime reading. Or maybe you think about the lamp sitting on the console table in the hallway, which greets you just before you enter or exit the house. Or perhaps you remember the end table in your recreational room, where you set the glass of your favorite beverage as you catch a game or movie on TV.
