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.
The central light takes a 3 way bulb (low-medium-high) that is often a MOGUL size which is larger than a standard socket with higher wattage (100-200-300 watts). The three arm lights are controlled by a switch that can turn on separately just 1, 2 or all 3 of the arm lights. Further, many of these JUNIORS had a small light under the base which provided a very subtle night time floor light operated by a foot switch mounted on the side of the base.
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.
It is always a good idea to compare the style and design of these lamps. Many lamps appear to look good when they are in the shop but as soon as you bring them home, it will look entirely different. So, always take into account the look of the lamp with your overall décor.
Decorating a new home or apartment is a fun and exciting experience for most but the vast options are occasionally overwhelming. Before setting out to accent your home with everything from modern floor lamps, desk lamps, pictures and other decor a little preparation will go a long way. Many people choose to focus on lighting as the first step in house warming.
