Floor Lamps. Monday , November 13th , 2017 - 23:49:15 PM
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.
These lamps are used in conjunction with overhead lights to provide visual interest and additional lighting for reading. Oftentimes, floor lamps are selected by homeowners by matching it with the overall design of the whole space, from the modern stainless steel to tiffany floor lamps. Because they are free standing, these lamps can be placed anywhere in the room near an electrical outlet or a favorite reading area. Floor lamps may be intended for lighting while others may be built in with shelves or racks. Because of its flexibility, these lamps should be placed in areas where children will not trip on them. Probably the best place for them is in corners or to the sides of living room furniture.
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. Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. The electrical components, the fabric shades and the painted finishes often need restoration but most were made with such fine quality, that they are a much better value than brand new high end lamps that sell for many hundreds of dollars.
