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.
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.
Create a Mood. Floor lamps allow individuals to create a mood within their home or office that becomes the focus of the space when one enters the room. A gateway to the past may come alive with a Victorian-style street lamp displaying the soft burnt orange glow of a custom crafted glass lampshade. Perhaps the theme of your living room is Oriental - a solid hardwood floor lamp with a Chinese raw lacquer finish with mother of pearl and metal chrome accents will fit into the décor. Color also helps create a mood such as the vibrant shades of red in Asian-style floor lamps.
