This functional, flexible and versatile piece can illuminate a room at the same time be considered as a beautifully designed furniture as well.
More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps especially as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most all floor lamp makers from the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals such as cast iron, brass, steel and cast zinc sometimes combined with marble, onyx, glass and stone.
For the power. Mainly, a floor lamp is used to highlight pieces of art or important pieces inside a room. But if your plan involves illuminating the entire room, purchase a lamp that utilizes higher power bulbs. In this way, you can achieve brighter light compared to lower power bulbs. Just remember to be very careful in using high wattage bulbs and never use one that is not recommended for the lamp. It is always advised to do your research beforehand so you will be able to buy a lamp that is able to accommodate the kind of lighting you want rather than fixing up a used floor lamp and risking potential hazards.
The brightest lamp that you can purchase today in any store was designed and made circa 1920. It is also the most versatile lamp that you can buy anywhere. Further it will outlast most any modern lamp that you can find at any price. This antique floor lamp is known by a numerous names such as: 6 Way Floor Lamp, Reflector Floor Lamp, and "JUNIOR". The design begins with a heavy metal base sometimes highly decorated with an upright tubing leading up to a central electrical socket surrounded by 3 arm lights (4 lights total).
Safety is also an important aspect. Inspect if the base of the lamp will be able to support itself and maintain the lamp's stability. This is especially important if there are pets and children inside the house.
