When you hear the word "lamp" what image do you think of? You probably imagine that table lamp on your bed's nightstand, which sheds some light on your bedtime reading. Or maybe you think about the lamp sitting on the console table in the hallway, which greets you just before you enter or exit the house. Or perhaps you remember the end table in your recreational room, where you set the glass of your favorite beverage as you catch a game or movie on TV.
Floor lamps can also allow for more creative lighting of a living space. With just a ceiling light you are limited to bright or dark. Floor lamps can illuminate sections of a room, they can shift the visual focus onto a specific painting or piece of art, and floor lamps can themselves act as an attractive piece of furniture. With both antique and contemporary models available, there is undoubtedly a floor lamp to meet your needs.
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.
