Overall, having an antique floor lamp has its own advantages, in the sense that it provides a touch of romance, class, and sophistication to any home. However, aside from it being very expensive, it does not provide adequate lighting and is primarily used for aesthetic purposes only, instead of functionality. So, in buying a floor lamp, ask yourself what you need it for. If you're not much concerned with lighting, and are more inclined towards having one for ornamental reasons, then you should go for an antique floor lamp. Just make sure you reinforce it with modern wiring so that it is safe to use.
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.
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.
