Sturdiness. Today's floor lamps, such as Tiffany stained glass floor lamps, are much sturdier than floor lamps of the past. For example, in the past, floor lamps were notorious for tipping over easily, thus creating a fire hazard. However, today's floor lamps must meet something called the UL "tipability standard," requiring their bases to be heavy enough.
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.
Adjustable brightness. While the brightness of many table lamps is limited to "off" and "on," floor lamps tend to provide a wider range of brightness. Whether you need minimum lighting for reading or more lighting for your kids' board game, a floor lamp usually provides a variety of brightness settings.
