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.
Floor lamps are a very simple way to add style and elegance to any room. A floor lamp is very mobile and can be moved around the house to suit the users needs while still adding that great element of elegance. As one can find floor lamps of all different shapes, sizes and colors they are a very popular item in the home decor industry and the latest trend has been antique floor lamps. These lamps are ornately designed, only cast a soft glow over the room and made out of brass while or some other type of metal. An antique lamp will surely add class and elegance to any style of room.
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.
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.
