More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps especially as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most all floor lamp makers from the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals such as cast iron brass steel and cast zinc sometimes combined with marble onyx glass and stone. Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers` own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. The electrical components the fabric shades and the painted finishes often need restoration but most were made with such fine quality that they are a much better value than brand new high end lamps that sell for many hundreds of dollars. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.
Overall having an antique floor lamp has its own advantages in the sense that it provides a touch of romance class and sophistication to any home. However aside from it being very expensive it does not provide adequate lighting and is primarily used for aesthetic purposes only instead of functionality. So in buying a floor lamp ask yourself what you need it for. If you`re not much concerned with lighting and are more inclined towards having one for ornamental reasons then you should go for an antique floor lamp. Just make sure you reinforce it with modern wiring so that it is safe to use.
Floor lamps are also known to serve as a work of art as some artists fashion one-of-a-kind pieces that sometimes depict odd creative or unusual displays. Some of the unique possibilities of artsy floor lamps include planetary designs sculpted wooden figures wild animals and abstract images. Artistic floor lamps may also use unusual objects to construct the base of the lamp such as animal antlers petrified wood branches or heat-treated metal. They may rise in the air like an ivory torch or bring the look and feel of fantasy with fairies decorating their base.
