Vallee. Floor Lamps. September 29th , 2017.
Floor lamps can also allow for more creative lighting of a living space. With just a ceiling light you are limited to bright or dark. Floor lamps can illuminate sections of a room, they can shift the visual focus onto a specific painting or piece of art, and floor lamps can themselves act as an attractive piece of furniture. With both antique and contemporary models available, there is undoubtedly a floor lamp to meet your needs. As a functional piece of furniture, the floor lamp is a solid choice. As a versatile choice of lighting, the floor lamp is excellent. Of all the pieces of furniture you could buy for your home, consider a couple floor lamps as necessities. The floor lamp is a solid piece of furniture that makes a great addition to any room.
Further it will outlast most any modern lamp that you can find at any price. This antique floor lamp is known by a numerous names such as: 6 Way Floor Lamp, Reflector Floor Lamp, and "JUNIOR". The design begins with a heavy metal base sometimes highly decorated with an upright tubing leading up to a central electrical socket surrounded by 3 arm lights (4 lights total). The central light takes a 3 way bulb (low-medium-high) that is often a MOGUL size which is larger than a standard socket with higher wattage (100-200-300 watts). The three arm lights are controlled by a switch that can turn on separately just 1, 2 or all 3 of the arm lights. Further, many of these JUNIORS had a small light under the base which provided a very subtle night time floor light operated by a foot switch mounted on the side of the base.
Not only are floor lamps more versatile in the traditional tasks assigned to desk lamps, but they also have distinctly different uses. Since a floor lamp illuminates both above and below, they are ideal for sitting rooms to both illuminate the room and the area where people are engaged in conversation. With the option of designs from gaudy to very minimalist, a lamp can be added to a room either as a stylistic addition or simply as a lighting upgrade.
However, genuine antique floor lamps are very hard to find, and are therefore very costly. In fact, in some auctions, French antique lamps could sell for up to a thousand dollars and more. That is why today manufacturers seek to mimic the antique look by making use of gilded bases, ornate cloths, and stained-glass lampshades. The color or hue of finish is also imitated to reflect the antique look.
