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.
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.
Floor lamps are sometimes used to represent or pay homage to regional pride as seen in Southwestern selections showcasing characteristic elements added to a lamp such as images of cacti and rattlesnakes. A New York City-themed floor lamp may showcase a silhouette of the Empire State Building. Cozy wilderness scenes of Colorado and other rustic locations may utilize the image of wild critters such as the grizzly bear or bald eagle.
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.
