Mix and Match Color Bulbs to Match Lampshades. The unique part of purchasing a floor lamp is that you may change lampshades to the base of your favorite lamp just as you can match different colored light bulbs to create varying effects within a room. Depending on the time of day and other outside factors various lampshade colors transform light into an array of shades but red blue green and even yellow lights can establish the atmosphere into a controlled setting such as a romantic environment to a room set aside for contemplation withdrawal or reflection.
When you hear the word "lamp" what image do you think of? You probably imagine that table lamp on your bed`s nightstand which sheds some light on your bedtime reading. Or maybe you think about the lamp sitting on the console table in the hallway which greets you just before you enter or exit the house. Or perhaps you remember the end table in your recreational room where you set the glass of your favorite beverage as you catch a game or movie on TV.
Look around your friends` houses and you will find out that an arch floor lamp is a very uncommon choice when it comes to lamps but once you know how this lamp can be of advantage you will want to have one in your home. Basically arch floor lamps are designed to be stationed on the floor - hence its name. They are generally tall and their neck is in the shape of an arc. The necks of these lamps are usually flexible so you can adjust their shape into the purpose you want them to accomplish. If you want your living room adequately lit you can place the floor lamp in one corner and straighten it out to spread the light. Should you want your guests to focus their attention to a furniture such as the sofa for a sit-down or a coffee table with a tray of coffee mugs put out for them you can bend over the lamp and focus its lighting on them. You can even bend the lamps backward so it will light the room romantically without having anyone look at the light and blind themselves.
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.
