Antique Lamps. There is a certain elegance and intrigue associated with displaying an antique floor lamp. In home design the mystery and unknown past of such an item is enough to spark the imagination as well as provide a delightful conversation topic when family and friends visit. Today there are manufacturers that strive to recreate this very look by emulating flowery ornamental approaches towards antique furniture which allows homeowners to match their lighting sources with other elements of their décor.
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.
You must first decide whether you would like a real antique floor lamp or just one produced to look like an antique. Real antique lamps are very rare and can cost thousands of dollars. Usually these antiques have some sort of historical importance and were used by an important person. On the other hand manufactured lamps are much cheaper and easier to get than real antique lamps and still provide that element of class to your room. It is more a personal decision on how much you are willing to spend and would you be okay just to have a manufactured lamp and not a real antique,
Floor lamps can be defined as self- supporting and lighting fixtures. These are most often used as reading lamps and also as auxiliary light sources in a particular office space or living rooms. All modern floor lamps make good use of a solid base that is usually for supporting the lamp. Another other shield or a lamp shade is also used to diffuse and distract the light that is produced by all the bulbs. There are also various or multiple settings for different levels of illumination. These types of lamps are often used in a conjunction with the overhead lights in order to provide additional illumination and also a visual interest for the purpose of reading.
