First let us define antique floor lamp. Of course a floor lamp normally rests upon the floor as opposed to resting upon a table, the wall or the ceiling. The general definition of an antique means something from a bygone era. This places the term outside the legal arena and into common usage. "era" is general perceived and is defined as a long indefinite time period which also works out perfectly for this general definition.
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.
The central light takes a 3 way bulb (low-medium-high) that is often a MOGUL size which is larger than a standard socket with higher wattage (100-200-300 watts). The three arm lights are controlled by a switch that can turn on separately just 1, 2 or all 3 of the arm lights. Further, many of these JUNIORS had a small light under the base which provided a very subtle night time floor light operated by a foot switch mounted on the side of the base.
Another unique feature of floor lamps is that the base of lamp can be changed. Therefore, you have an option of matching different colored light bulbs to provide varying effects inside a room. Depending on your preferences, you can create a romantic environment with just a change of blue to red shades.
These lamps are ideal for lighting a living space. With just a ceiling light, your lighting effects will be limited to bright or dark lights. With the help of floor lamps, you can illuminate areas of the room with more flexibility. For instance, you can focus onto a specific painting and can readily transfer the spotlight into another piece of art. This piece can also be an attractive piece of furniture itself.
Safety is also an important aspect. Inspect if the base of the lamp will be able to support itself and maintain the lamp's stability. This is especially important if there are pets and children inside the house.
These lamps are used in conjunction with overhead lights to provide visual interest and additional lighting for reading. Oftentimes, floor lamps are selected by homeowners by matching it with the overall design of the whole space, from the modern stainless steel to tiffany floor lamps. Because they are free standing, these lamps can be placed anywhere in the room near an electrical outlet or a favorite reading area.
