Clarice. Floor Lamps. October 22nd , 2017.
First you want to decide where you want to put lights and what kind of lighting you will utilize. There are modern floor lamps, desk lamps, accent lamps and more to choose from. Space and light brightness are the two biggest functional factors when picking a great modern lamp. Depending on the intended use for the lamp will decide if a modern accent lamp with low light for decoration will be suitable or if a bright contemporary desk lamp or floor lamp is needed for reading.
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.
A few common features of antique lamps include the stained-glass lampshade, brass finishes, and intricate designs. When one is interested in truly decorating their home with antique floor lamps, genuine specimens may cost quite a bit, such as French antique lamps carrying a price tag of more than thousands of dollars. Usually, an antique or antique-styled floor lamp is selected because of its look and fit within a setting, rather than bringing light into the room.
Further it will outlast most any modern lamp that you can find at any price. This antique floor lamp is known by a numerous names such as: 6 Way Floor Lamp, Reflector Floor Lamp, and "JUNIOR". The design begins with a heavy metal base sometimes highly decorated with an upright tubing leading up to a central electrical socket surrounded by 3 arm lights (4 lights total). 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.
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.
