Gallia. Floor Lamps. October 07th , 2017.
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.
The height of the lamp shade is another important factor whether the lamp will be on the floor or on top of a table, dresser or other furniture. Usually you want the lamp shade to be at the same height as your head as a general rule of thumb. Picking a modern floor lamp out online and having it delivered is a great way to save money but also requires you review the measurements in the product description. Check the size with the future location of the modern lamp to eliminate size concerns.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading, an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand, if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
There are lamps that are purposely used for lighting but there are also those that are only used solely as an ornament. This functional, flexible and versatile piece can illuminate a room at the same time be considered as a beautifully designed furniture as well. Floor lamps such as tiffany floor lamps can offer a higher level of illumination compared to the more popular table lamps. Below are some of the guidelines you need to follow when shopping for floor lamps.
The unique part of purchasing a floor lamp is that you may change lampshades to the base of your favorite lamp, just as you can match different colored light bulbs to create varying effects within a room. Depending on the time of day and other outside factors, various lampshade colors transform light into an array of shades, but red, blue, green, and even yellow lights can establish the atmosphere into a controlled setting, such as a romantic environment to a room set aside for contemplation, withdrawal, or reflection.
