An antique floor lamp is a conversational piece in its own right. Having one at home is sure to entice your houseguests into an animated discussion about its intricate design history and romantic elegance. Its brass finish stained-glass lampshades and intricate designs are enough to lure anyone into delightful conversation.
Aside from rewiring the old floor lamp you should also make sure that the base is stable. Nowadays floor lamps have to meet UL standards where the bases are heavier so that it won`t easily tip over. However ages ago antique floor lamps do not have a standardized base that can`t easily be tipped over. Accidental tipping over of floor lamps can lead to unwanted fire accidents. That is why it is very important to check whether the antique floor lamp you plan to buy is safe in terms of its structure.
Decorating challenges look like they`re all around nowadays and people seem to still be trying to find an easier way to update their house or office on a shoe string budget. Tackle your project armed with the beauty and versatility of contemporary floor lamps that will help remedy the issue.
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.
