Contemporary floor lamps come in so many styles that it would be difficult not to find one that will match your home. Most lamps are a great deal taller than the rest of the furniture, allowing it to stand out in the crowd. The materials that are used to make a lamp will vary between the styles. Therefore, the type of lamp you purchase should be based on the decor found within the room you plan to use it in. Wood, metal, paper, and brass among the most common substances used for the creation of floor lamps.
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.

Usually you want the lamp shade to be at the same height as your head as a general rule of thumb.
