However, genuine antique floor lamps are very hard to find, and are therefore very costly. In fact, in some auctions, French antique lamps could sell for up to a thousand dollars and more. That is why today manufacturers seek to mimic the antique look by making use of gilded bases, ornate cloths, and stained-glass lampshades. The color or hue of finish is also imitated to reflect the antique look.
Here then are 5 tips for decorating with contemporary floor lamps: Pick the Proper Style. Floor lamps are no longer just something you find at your Grandma's house collecting dust, but are now used in any contemporary, traditional or vintage setting at home or office. True, some styles can be mixed and matched, like adding a beautifully designed Tiffany floor lamp to a moderately contemporary decor. But, reverse that idea and add a contemporary lamp to a Victorian style room and you'll get a "yikes" reaction from guest, if only in their minds. Look through magazines or visit a furniture store to check out how they do it.
In buying a floor lamp, one of the first challenges you are faced with is to figure out what type of floor lamp you will need - an antique floor lamp or a floor lamp with more modern styles.
