Antiques are sought for their mature beauty and the elegance they bring to a room. The antique trend that exists in the world of home design has even influenced floor lamps. Manufacturers create designs to mimic the sometimes flowery or ornate styles of antique furniture to provide fixtures to match the various types of antique home décor.
Some floor lamps are fashioned with a specific art movement in mind, such as colorful Art Deco pieces. Artists may also hand craft their samples and hand paint customized detailing on the outside of the shade to add characteristic touches for home and/or office use.
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.
Some skills are easier than others to gain when considering beautifying our surroundings. As an example, decorating with floor lamps takes little skill but it does take forethought. Effective interior designers generally have a properly considered plan for success and now we offer several of their easiest and most economical strategies to share with you.
Contemporary floor lamps come in so many styles that it would be difficult not to find one that will match your home. Most lamps are a great deal taller than the rest of the furniture, allowing it to stand out in the crowd. The materials that are used to make a lamp will vary between the styles. Therefore, the type of lamp you purchase should be based on the decor found within the room you plan to use it in. Wood, metal, paper, and brass among the most common substances used for the creation of floor lamps.
The Room In Which The Floor Lamp Will Be Placed. One of the first things you will need to consider when purchasing a contemporary lamp is the room in which the lamp will be placed. Obviously, your choice for a child's playroom lamp will different from the lamp you choose for your modern living room, or your formal dining room. The decor of the rooms you use contemporary ones will in some ways limit your choice of the lamps you choose. A chrome and glass lamp will look out of place in a Victorian living or bedroom. So make sure that the lamp you choose fits the room in which it will be placed.
Along with the gooseneck and tree-like lamps, some of the most popular styles of contemporary floor lamps include the torchiere, console, and tray lamps. The torchiere is probably the most popular at the moment. The bowl shaped lamp shade that accompanies this lamp is typically made of metal or glass. The simplicity of the lamp makes it easy to use in a number of rooms, no matter the design, space, or style.
