Create a Mood. Floor lamps allow individuals to create a mood within their home or office that becomes the focus of the space when one enters the room. A gateway to the past may come alive with a Victorian-style street lamp displaying the soft, burnt orange glow of a custom crafted glass lampshade. Perhaps, the theme of your living room is Oriental - a solid hardwood floor lamp with a Chinese raw lacquer finish with mother of pearl and metal chrome accents will fit into the décor. Color also helps create a mood, such as the vibrant shades of red in Asian-style floor lamps.
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.
An antique floor lamp is a conversational piece, in its own right. Having one at home is sure to entice your houseguests into an animated discussion about its intricate design, history, and romantic elegance. Its brass finish, stained-glass lampshades, and intricate designs are enough to lure anyone into delightful conversation.
