Modern Floor Lamp Prep. First you want to decide where you want to put lights and what kind of lighting you will utilize. There are modern floor lamps desk lamps accent lamps and more to choose from. Space and light brightness are the two biggest functional factors when picking a great modern lamp. Depending on the intended use for the lamp will decide if a modern accent lamp with low light for decoration will be suitable or if a bright contemporary desk lamp or floor lamp is needed for reading. Another important factor is the power consumption of the contemporary lamp. Energy costs are rising and finding a modern lamp with a good wattage range will help reduce your electric bill. Reading lights usually need to have at least 100 watts where accent lamps are fine to be 100 watts or lower. You may opt to go with modern lamps that allow compact fluorescent bulbs since these are much more efficient. Picking a light with more wattage is not really necessary for home use; but do not pick such a dim light that causes eye strain when reading or other activities.
High quality beauty and function were powerful influences on the makers of antique floor lamps. Many people are aware of their outstanding quality and beauty but completely surprised about the highly developed functional and technical characteristics. There are far too many examples to list here but I will mention a couple of the more important ones.
The brightest lamp that you can purchase today in any store was designed and made circa 1920. It is also the most versatile lamp that you can buy anywhere. Further it will outlast most any modern lamp that you can find at any price. This antique floor lamp is known by a numerous names such as: 6 Way Floor Lamp Reflector Floor Lamp and "JUNIOR". The design begins with a heavy metal base sometimes highly decorated with an upright tubing leading up to a central electrical socket surrounded by 3 arm lights (4 lights total). The central light takes a 3 way bulb (low-medium-high) that is often a MOGUL size which is larger than a standard socket with higher wattage (100-200-300 watts). The three arm lights are controlled by a switch that can turn on separately just 1 2 or all 3 of the arm lights. Further many of these JUNIORS had a small light under the base which provided a very subtle night time floor light operated by a foot switch mounted on the side of the base. As if this were not enough the central top socket is encased in a large metal cup which holds a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce of the ceiling. A fabric or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shade) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light downward for reading. A single arm light can provide a simple night light or at it brightest setting it can light up an entire room. There is no brighter lamp or more versatile lamp available anywhere today and it was designed and made nearly 100 years ago.
A few common features of antique lamps include the stained-glass lampshade brass finishes and intricate designs. When one is interested in truly decorating their home with antique floor lamps genuine specimens may cost quite a bit such as French antique lamps carrying a price tag of more than thousands of dollars. Usually an antique or antique-styled floor lamp is selected because of its look and fit within a setting rather than bringing light into the room.
