Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers' own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. The electrical components, the fabric shades and the painted finishes often need restoration but most were made with such fine quality, that they are a much better value than brand new high end lamps that sell for many hundreds of dollars. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.

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).

However, a floor lamp provides a wider range of illumination. So whether you are watching TV, working on a puzzle, or reading the newspaper, a floor lamp can provide the right amount of light, thus lowering your energy bills.
Floor lamps such as tiffany floor lamps can offer a higher level of illumination compared to the more popular table lamps. Below are some of the guidelines you need to follow when shopping for floor lamps.

It is always a good idea to compare the style and design of these lamps. Many lamps appear to look good when they are in the shop but as soon as you bring them home, it will look entirely different. So, always take into account the look of the lamp with your overall décor.
Although these lamps only use minimal space, it is still important to keep the measurement in mind when shopping especially when eyeing the lampshades. It is also wise to choose a halogen-style or fluorescent bulbs for these lamps.
