Some floor lamps are fashioned with a specific art movement in mind such as colorful Art Deco pieces. Artists may also hand craft their samples and hand paint customized detailing on the outside of the shade to add characteristic touches for home and/or office use.
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.
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. Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers` own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. The electrical components the fabric shades and the painted finishes often need restoration but most were made with such fine quality that they are a much better value than brand new high end lamps that sell for many hundreds of dollars. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.
Next you want to take note of the colors in the room you will add the modern floor lamp. Matching the colors exactly is not necessary but you definitely want similar colors or colors that complement each other. Also keep in mind the footprint size of the base of the modern floor lamp along with the height. If you have ceilings that are low then you need to keep this in mind when shopping for your lamps so they will fit. The height of the lamp shade is another important factor whether the lamp will be on the floor or on top of a table dresser or other furniture. Usually you want the lamp shade to be at the same height as your head as a general rule of thumb. Picking a modern floor lamp out online and having it delivered is a great way to save money but also requires you review the measurements in the product description. Check the size with the future location of the modern lamp to eliminate size concerns.
