Here then are 5 tips for decorating with contemporary floor lamps: Pick the Proper Style. Floor lamps are no longer just something you find at your Grandma's house collecting dust, but are now used in any contemporary, traditional or vintage setting at home or office. True, some styles can be mixed and matched, like adding a beautifully designed Tiffany floor lamp to a moderately contemporary decor. But, reverse that idea and add a contemporary lamp to a Victorian style room and you'll get a "yikes" reaction from guest, if only in their minds. Look through magazines or visit a furniture store to check out how they do it.
Consider How The Lamp Will Be Used. 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.
The Room In Which The Floor Lamp Will Be Placed. One of the first things you will need to consider when purchasing a contemporary lamp is the room in which the lamp will be placed. Obviously, your choice for a child's playroom lamp will different from the lamp you choose for your modern living room, or your formal dining room. The decor of the rooms you use contemporary ones will in some ways limit your choice of the lamps you choose. A chrome and glass lamp will look out of place in a Victorian living or bedroom. So make sure that the lamp you choose fits the room in which it will be placed.
Also, an antique floor lamp is rarely chosen for the purpose of illuminating a room. It focuses more on aesthetics rather than function. In order to make your antique floor lamp more functional and a lot safer, you can take it to an electrician for restoration. If you want to do this yourself, all you have to do is replace the electrical workings with contemporary and more modern parts. You can convert a vintage floor lamp into a compressed fluorescent or halogen floor lamp. Through this method, you can enjoy the elegance of antique design, and at the same time the benefits of modern lighting.
Know the purpose of the Contemporary Floor Lamp. Knowing the goal of the lighting, determines where and just how you put it and perhaps just how much you pay to buy. Do you really need light in a corner for accent, then think of a more ornate, colorful shade? Do you want a soft light is a baby's room or soft light in a conversational sitting area, then consider a torchiere style with the shade turned upward. Needless to say, for reading, go for a floor lamp that allows two to three light bulbs with a shade turned down. Remember the room balance in all of this. You can use the placement to balance the area for those who have other tall large furniture pieces on an opposite wall.
