For many interior decorators and house designers, lighting is one of the most important elements in dressing up a house, if not the most important one. Not only will it provide ample brightness to the room so everyone can comfortably see, it also sets the mood of the room, whether you want it brightly lit for an exciting party, or set the room in a dim glow for an intimate conversation with your closes friends. While table lamps are popular choices for an appropriate lighting, why not go for a more unique alternative in an arch floor lamp?
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.
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.
When you hear the word "lamp" what image do you think of? You probably imagine that table lamp on your bed`s nightstand, which sheds some light on your bedtime reading. Or maybe you think about the lamp sitting on the console table in the hallway, which greets you just before you enter or exit the house. Or perhaps you remember the end table in your recreational room, where you set the glass of your favorite beverage as you catch a game or movie on TV.
