One of the best reading lamps in the world was also designed circa 1920. It has been highly imitated but it still remains unchallenged. The Bridge Arm Floor Lamp or Bridge Lamp has a typical floor lamp design with metal base and upright standard which can take the form of various types of decorated tubing, twisted iron rods, etc. At the top of the standard is a decorative cast metal arm with a graceful arc or curvature which ends with an electrical socket pointing downward and covered by a fabric or glass shade.
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.
Sturdiness. Today's floor lamps, such as Tiffany stained glass floor lamps, are much sturdier than floor lamps of the past. For example, in the past, floor lamps were notorious for tipping over easily, thus creating a fire hazard. However, today's floor lamps must meet something called the UL "tipability standard," requiring their bases to be heavy enough.
