Floor Lamps. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 03:55:01 AM
Not only are floor lamps more versatile in the traditional tasks assigned to desk lamps, but they also have distinctly different uses. Since a floor lamp illuminates both above and below, they are ideal for sitting rooms to both illuminate the room and the area where people are engaged in conversation. With the option of designs from gaudy to very minimalist, a lamp can be added to a room either as a stylistic addition or simply as a lighting upgrade.
High Tech Silicon Valley might be very trendy but it needs a touch of beauty to and what better way to accomplish that than with a trendy floor lamp like a Tiffany lamp. When youre tired of all the high tech gadgets shut them off and enjoy the beauty of your lamp! You dream about the Greek goddess you were in your past life, you envision drinking delicious wine and togas. Okay back to real time but wait, modern life can encompass a little touch of ancient Greece with a torchiere lamp.
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. 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.
