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.
Overall having an antique floor lamp has its own advantages in the sense that it provides a touch of romance class and sophistication to any home. However aside from it being very expensive it does not provide adequate lighting and is primarily used for aesthetic purposes only instead of functionality. So in buying a floor lamp ask yourself what you need it for. If you`re not much concerned with lighting and are more inclined towards having one for ornamental reasons then you should go for an antique floor lamp. Just make sure you reinforce it with modern wiring so that it is safe to use.
Also an antique floor lamp is rarely chosen for the purpose of illuminating a room. It focuses more on aesthetics rather than function. In order to make your antique floor lamp more functional and a lot safer you can take it to an electrician for restoration. If you want to do this yourself all you have to do is replace the electrical workings with contemporary and more modern parts. You can convert a vintage floor lamp into a compressed fluorescent or halogen floor lamp. Through this method you can enjoy the elegance of antique design and at the same time the benefits of modern lighting.
The Room In Which The Floor Lamp Will Be Placed. One of the first things you will need to consider when purchasing a contemporary lamp is the room in which the lamp will be placed. Obviously your choice for a child`s playroom lamp will different from the lamp you choose for your modern living room or your formal dining room. The decor of the rooms you use contemporary ones will in some ways limit your choice of the lamps you choose. A chrome and glass lamp will look out of place in a Victorian living or bedroom. So make sure that the lamp you choose fits the room in which it will be placed.
