Yolette. Floor Lamps. September 22nd , 2017.
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.
A popular antique floor lamp restoration technique is to replace the electrical workings with contemporary parts to make these lamps safer and more functional. Converting a vintage floor lamp into a halogen or a compressed fluorescent floor lamp combines the benefits of modern lighting technology with the beauty of antique design. Antique floor lamps are rarely chosen for their light - they really are more aesthetic than functional. A vintage floor lamp pleases the eye and accentuates much of the furniture around it.
Next you want to take note of the colors in the room you will add the modern floor lamp. Matching the colors exactly is not necessary but you definitely want similar colors or colors that complement each other. Also keep in mind the footprint size of the base of the modern floor lamp along with the height. If you have ceilings that are low then you need to keep this in mind when shopping for your lamps so they will fit.
Arc lamp. The arc lamp is composed of a weighted stand extending towards an arm that is shaped like an arc. Given such configuration, lamplight is usually radiating downwards, making the arc lamp perfect for places where reading or table lamps cannot be placed or installed easily. Because it has a unique shape, table lamps are also popular in both transitional and contemporary interiors.
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.
