Romaine. Floor Lamps. October 13th , 2017.
One of the best reading lamps in the world was also designed circa 1920. It has been highly imitated but it still remains unchallenged. The Bridge Arm Floor Lamp or Bridge Lamp has a typical floor lamp design with metal base and upright standard which can take the form of various types of decorated tubing, twisted iron rods, etc. At the top of the standard is a decorative cast metal arm with a graceful arc or curvature which ends with an electrical socket pointing downward and covered by a fabric or glass shade. This has the effect of offsetting the light by about 14-18" from the upright standard at the same time lowering it so that it is closer to the reading material or work project. The result is an excellent reading lamp or work lamp which places the light bulb very near the task at hand. Many of these Bridge Arm Floor Lamps have convenient pull chains which hang below the bottom of the lamp shade for ease of operation.
These lamps are ideal for lighting a living space. With just a ceiling light, your lighting effects will be limited to bright or dark lights. With the help of floor lamps, you can illuminate areas of the room with more flexibility. For instance, you can focus onto a specific painting and can readily transfer the spotlight into another piece of art. This piece can also be an attractive piece of furniture itself. Another unique feature of floor lamps is that the base of lamp can be changed. Therefore, you have an option of matching different colored light bulbs to provide varying effects inside a room. Depending on your preferences, you can create a romantic environment with just a change of blue to red shades.
Budget is another consideration for purchasing contemporary floor lamps for your home. Since there are a number of styles to choose from, the price range for a floor lamp will vary greatly. The more simple ones can be bought for just $30, while some brands and designs come with a price tag in the thousand dollar range. You only need one to two contemporary floor lamps to light up an entire room, so you can choose prices that will fit into your budget easily.
Also, an antique floor lamp is rarely chosen for the purpose of illuminating a room. It focuses more on aesthetics rather than function. In order to make your antique floor lamp more functional and a lot safer, you can take it to an electrician for restoration. If you want to do this yourself, all you have to do is replace the electrical workings with contemporary and more modern parts. You can convert a vintage floor lamp into a compressed fluorescent or halogen floor lamp. Through this method, you can enjoy the elegance of antique design, and at the same time the benefits of modern lighting.
Proper illumination can definitely add to the allure of a personal space. It is able to set the mood and atmosphere of a room just by providing the appropriate amount of light. While table lamps may serve a functional purpose, floor lamps prove to have more extensive qualities. Whether you choose an antique selection to brighten your living room or side with tiffany floor lamps, the immeasurable possibilities of a floor lamp will always stand out.
