High quality beauty and function were powerful influences on the makers of antique floor lamps. Many people are aware of their outstanding quality and beauty but completely surprised about the highly developed functional and technical characteristics. There are far too many examples to list here but I will mention a couple of the more important ones.
This is usually a critical point because many folks stick a floor lamp too close to other lamps or tall pieces which only diminishes its beauty and effectiveness. Simply do not bunch furniture especially lighting. Due to the fact a contemporary floor lamp has a small footprint resist the temptation to set it anywhere. Use your gut feeling meaning if you think it may be just a little too much it probably is so move it.
And why is this wise decision? How many times have we all bought some household item on a whim then get it home and do nothing with it because we changed out mind. Think of not less than two ways or places to use the floor lamp so that you will decide on a versatile piece with lots of appeal. Why? If for no other reason you want to get your money`s worth when using the lamp again and not being forced to buy another one.
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). 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. As if this were not enough the central top socket is encased in a large metal cup which holds a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce of the ceiling. A fabric or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shade) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light downward for reading. A single arm light can provide a simple night light or at it brightest setting it can light up an entire room. There is no brighter lamp or more versatile lamp available anywhere today and it was designed and made nearly 100 years ago!
