When making your next lighting purchase, make sure to consider floor lamps. Their versatility regarding placement makes them an excellent choice in lighting. Floor lamps outdo table lamps in so many ways. A traditional table lamp provides wonderful light for a raised surface like a desk, table, or nightstand, but you are limited in its placement to these raised surfaces. A floor lamp can stand alongside a desk or table and provide a wonderful light source. Many floor lamps have flexible necks to provide expanded functionality and can be adjusted to brighten any raised surface, wall, or an entire room.
Of course there are many other kinds of antique floor lamps such as torchiere, two light, curved arm, swing arm, etc. Even the oldest and most dilapidated of these well built heirlooms can be brought back to life with some scrubbing, sanding, painting, rewiring and sometimes soldering or welding.
More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps especially as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most all floor lamp makers from the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals such as cast iron, brass, steel and cast zinc sometimes combined with marble, onyx, glass and stone.
