Antiques are sought for their mature beauty and the elegance they bring to a room. The antique trend that exists in the world of home design has even influenced floor lamps. Manufacturers create designs to mimic the sometimes flowery or ornate styles of antique furniture to provide fixtures to match the various types of antique home decor. Many of these so-called antique lamps have a gilded base and ornate cloth or stained-glass lampshades. Sometimes, the word "antique" is used simply to describe a hue in the finish. Antique brass is a popular finish in floor lamps. In truth, these are simply reproduction lamps. True antique floor lamps are much harder to find and are substantially more expensive, depending on their history and design. In fact, some French antique lamps sell at auctions for thousands of dollars.
