Next you want to take note of the colors in the room you will add the modern floor lamp. Matching the colors exactly is not necessary but you definitely want similar colors or colors that complement each other. Also keep in mind the footprint size of the base of the modern floor lamp along with the height. If you have ceilings that are low then you need to keep this in mind when shopping for your lamps so they will fit.
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.
You can choose the bulbs on your own. They are replaceable. You can decide the brightness of the lamp based on your needs. For your information, most of the arc floor lamps come with dimmer options but you can change anytime if you want to do a lot of reading in your room.
Energy costs are rising and finding a modern lamp with a good wattage range will help reduce your electric bill. Reading lights usually need to have at least 100 watts where accent lamps are fine to be 100 watts or lower. You may opt to go with modern lamps that allow compact fluorescent bulbs since these are much more efficient. Picking a light with more wattage is not really necessary for home use; but do not pick such a dim light that causes eye strain when reading or other activities.
Having an antique floor lamp as opposed to more modern ones has its corresponding advantages and disadvantages. First of all, there is always a touch of class and elegance brought upon by an antique piece, in this case an antique floor lamp. Its mystery and unknown past is always very appealing, and could serve as an enchanting conversation topic when friends, family, and guests visit.
A few common features of antique lamps include the stained-glass lampshade, brass finishes, and intricate designs. When one is interested in truly decorating their home with antique floor lamps, genuine specimens may cost quite a bit, such as French antique lamps carrying a price tag of more than thousands of dollars. Usually, an antique or antique-styled floor lamp is selected because of its look and fit within a setting, rather than bringing light into the room.
In general, most of the lamps come with single swing arm. However, if you wish to give your room a unique look, you are recommended to get the lamps which come with multiple heads or arms. All the heads and arms are adjustable.
