Aside from rewiring the old floor lamp, you should also make sure that the base is stable. Nowadays, floor lamps have to meet UL standards, where the bases are heavier, so that it won't easily tip over. However, ages ago, antique floor lamps do not have a standardized base that can't easily be tipped over. Accidental tipping over of floor lamps can lead to unwanted fire accidents. That is why it is very important to check whether the antique floor lamp you plan to buy is safe in terms of its structure.
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.
For people who intend to get this type of lamp for their homes, I am here to share some important points about this product. Let's take a look at the materials first. You can find these lamps in a wide range of finishes, such as bamboo, wood, chrome, nickel, etc. Currently, the most popular finish in the market is chrome. Some lamps come with heavy bases. Some bases are made of marbles.
Overall, having an antique floor lamp has its own advantages, in the sense that it provides a touch of romance, class, and sophistication to any home. However, aside from it being very expensive, it does not provide adequate lighting and is primarily used for aesthetic purposes only, instead of functionality. So, in buying a floor lamp, ask yourself what you need it for. If you're not much concerned with lighting, and are more inclined towards having one for ornamental reasons, then you should go for an antique floor lamp. Just make sure you reinforce it with modern wiring so that it is safe to use.
