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.
Also an antique floor lamp is rarely chosen for the purpose of illuminating a room. It focuses more on aesthetics rather than function. In order to make your antique floor lamp more functional and a lot safer you can take it to an electrician for restoration. If you want to do this yourself all you have to do is replace the electrical workings with contemporary and more modern parts. You can convert a vintage floor lamp into a compressed fluorescent or halogen floor lamp. Through this method you can enjoy the elegance of antique design and at the same time the benefits of modern lighting.
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,
Knowing the goal of the lighting determines where and just how you put it and perhaps just how much you pay to buy. Do you really need light in a corner for accent then think of a more ornate colorful shade? Do you want a soft light is a baby`s room or soft light in a conversational sitting area then consider a torchiere style with the shade turned upward. Needless to say for reading go for a floor lamp that allows two to three light bulbs with a shade turned down. Remember the room balance in all of this. You can use the placement to balance the area for those who have other tall large furniture pieces on an opposite wall.
