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.
Antique floor lamps are rarely chosen for their light - they really are more aesthetic than functional. A vintage floor lamp pleases the eye and accentuates much of the furniture around it. Brass trim in a floor lamp's base can call attention to the brass handles of a nearby chest. The carved wood of a maple floor lamp adds to a room's warm tones and blends in with the rest of the dark wood furniture.
Aside from rewiring the old floor lamp, you should also make sure that the base is stable. Nowadays, floor lamps have to meet UL standards, where the bases are heavier, so that it won't easily tip over. However, ages ago, antique floor lamps do not have a standardized base that can't easily be tipped over. Accidental tipping over of floor lamps can lead to unwanted fire accidents. That is why it is very important to check whether the antique floor lamp you plan to buy is safe in terms of its structure.
