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.
First let us define antique floor lamp. Of course a floor lamp normally rests upon the floor as opposed to resting upon a table the wall or the ceiling. The general definition of an antique means something from a bygone era. This places the term outside the legal arena and into common usage. "era" is general perceived and is defined as a long indefinite time period which also works out perfectly for this general definition. This general definition works perfectly since any identification of an "antique floor lamp" is fairly useless without some time period designation normally in the form of circa 1905 which literally means "about the year 1905". So I will use the term antique floor lamp on this basis and often substitute it with the term vintage floor lamp. This discussion does not address modern reproductions of antique lamps which is another subject to itself.
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. This has the effect of offsetting the light by about 14-18" from the upright standard at the same time lowering it so that it is closer to the reading material or work project. The result is an excellent reading lamp or work lamp which places the light bulb very near the task at hand. Many of these Bridge Arm Floor Lamps have convenient pull chains which hang below the bottom of the lamp shade for ease of operation.
If you think yourself a minimalist when it comes to designing your home having an arch floor lamp will be a perfect decision to make. A lamp like usually have a sleek and simple design having only a very narrow neck and a wider base to support itself. The most strategic way of placing a lamp like these is to put it in the corner. Not only will it fill up an empty space it will also light up a room in the best manner. Should you want to be a little decorative while maintaining simplicity you can also for arch floor lamps that have several heads to hold several bulbs. It will also light up a room brightly and you can just unscrew a bulb if you want a dimmer lighting.
