Floor Lamps. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 02:41:40 AM
This role makes floor lamps one of the most popular fixtures among interior designers, landscape artists, homeowners and building administrators. Available in different sizes, shapes, and illuminating power, floor lamps may be used to fully or just partially lighten a particular space in order to purposely generate a particular aesthetic or functional effect. Bulbs are usually adjustable in terms of output and angle of illumination and may even come in various colors.
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. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.
If you are thinking of purchasing some floor lamps for your home, you should make some considerations. The first is the wattage of the lamp. If you want to add a soft light to a living room or den, you can opt for a lamp that works with a low wattage light bulb. If you the lamp is to provide lighting for reading or other things in which you need to be able to see well, you will want to go with a lamp that will offer more illumination. Gooseneck and tree-style lamps are good if you need the light focused on one area, such as beside your reading or sewing chair.
