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.

You can use the placement to balance the area for those who have other tall large furniture pieces on an opposite wall.

True antique floor lamps are much harder to find and are substantially more expensive, depending on their history and design. In fact, some French antique lamps sell at auctions for thousands of dollars.
