Full spectrum lighting. This allows the lamp's user to enjoy the full spectrum of light, including light that the naked human eye cannot detect, such as infrared light. In particular, this feature provides artists who use a variety of media, with a type of artificial sunlight to help reveal how certain hues will appear in sunlight.
Proper illumination can definitely add to the allure of a personal space. It is able to set the mood and atmosphere of a room just by providing the appropriate amount of light. While table lamps may serve a functional purpose, floor lamps prove to have more extensive qualities. Whether you choose an antique selection to brighten your living room or side with tiffany floor lamps, the immeasurable possibilities of a floor lamp will always stand out.
You should first determine for what purpose you are going to use the floor lamp. If it is for reading purposes, find a lamp that has an adequate light to do this activity. Then again if it is only used to create the mood of the entire room, a low wattage bulb is needed. These lamps are very flexible so if you ever change your mind in where to put them, you can always position it elsewhere.
As if this were not enough, the central top socket is encased in a large metal cup which holds a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce of the ceiling. A fabric or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shade) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light downward for reading. A single arm light can provide a simple night light or at it brightest setting, it can light up an entire room. There is no brighter lamp or more versatile lamp available anywhere today and it was designed and made nearly 100 years ago!
This general definition works perfectly since any identification of an "antique floor lamp" is fairly useless without some time period designation normally in the form of circa 1905 which literally means "about the year 1905". So I will use the term antique floor lamp on this basis and often substitute it with the term vintage floor lamp. This discussion does not address modern reproductions of antique lamps which is another subject to itself.
The floor lamp's switch location should also be a determining factor. It should be convenient for the user. These switches sometimes come in touch-on switches, remote control dimmer or a rotating switch. Decide on your preference and check if it is working properly.
The brightest lamp that you can purchase today in any store was designed and made circa 1920. It is also the most versatile lamp that you can buy anywhere. Further it will outlast most any modern lamp that you can find at any price. This antique floor lamp is known by a numerous names such as: 6 Way Floor Lamp, Reflector Floor Lamp, and "JUNIOR". The design begins with a heavy metal base sometimes highly decorated with an upright tubing leading up to a central electrical socket surrounded by 3 arm lights (4 lights total).
