Some skills are easier than others to gain when considering beautifying our surroundings. As an example decorating with floor lamps takes little skill but it does take forethought. Effective interior designers generally have a properly considered plan for success and now we offer several of their easiest and most economical strategies to share with you.
One of the best reading lamps in the world was also designed circa 1920. It has been highly imitated but it still remains unchallenged. The Bridge Arm Floor Lamp or Bridge Lamp has a typical floor lamp design with metal base and upright standard which can take the form of various types of decorated tubing twisted iron rods etc. At the top of the standard is a decorative cast metal arm with a graceful arc or curvature which ends with an electrical socket pointing downward and covered by a fabric or glass shade. This has the effect of offsetting the light by about 14-18" from the upright standard at the same time lowering it so that it is closer to the reading material or work project. The result is an excellent reading lamp or work lamp which places the light bulb very near the task at hand. Many of these Bridge Arm Floor Lamps have convenient pull chains which hang below the bottom of the lamp shade for ease of operation.
Floor lamps are no longer just something you find at your Grandma`s house collecting dust but are now used in any contemporary traditional or vintage setting at home or office. True some styles can be mixed and matched like adding a beautifully designed Tiffany floor lamp to a moderately contemporary decor. But reverse that idea and add a contemporary lamp to a Victorian style room and you`ll get a "yikes" reaction from guest if only in their minds. Look through magazines or visit a furniture store to check out how they do it.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
