In general, a floor lamp serves many purposes in addition to being considered as a very beautiful piece of furniture. As functional piece of furniture, a floor lamp is a solid choice. As a versatile choice of lighting, the floor lamp is excellent. As a stunning piece of art, it is incomparable. In other words, floor lamps are a magnificent piece of furniture that can greatly add pleasure and warmth in your everyday life.
These lamps are used in conjunction with overhead lights to provide visual interest and additional lighting for reading. Oftentimes, floor lamps are selected by homeowners by matching it with the overall design of the whole space, from the modern stainless steel to tiffany floor lamps. Because they are free standing, these lamps can be placed anywhere in the room near an electrical outlet or a favorite reading area.
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.
Of course there are many other kinds of antique floor lamps such as torchiere, two light, curved arm, swing arm, etc. Even the oldest and most dilapidated of these well built heirlooms can be brought back to life with some scrubbing, sanding, painting, rewiring and sometimes soldering or welding.
It is also sometimes necessary to measure the space that will be used for the floor lamp. Aspects such as the height are essential. The uplight top edge should be higher than the standing person's level. While the reading lamp's lower edge needs to be below the eye level. This measurement ensures decreased exposure to the bare bulb glare.
