First of all, there is always a touch of class and elegance brought upon by an antique piece, in this case an antique floor lamp. Its mystery and unknown past is always very appealing, and could serve as an enchanting conversation topic when friends, family, and guests visit. However, genuine antique floor lamps are very hard to find, and are therefore very costly. In fact, in some auctions, French antique lamps could sell for up to a thousand dollars and more. That is why today manufacturers seek to mimic the antique look by making use of gilded bases, ornate cloths, and stained-glass lampshades. The color or hue of finish is also imitated to reflect the antique look.
Next you want to take note of the colors in the room you will add the modern floor lamp. Matching the colors exactly is not necessary but you definitely want similar colors or colors that complement each other. Also keep in mind the footprint size of the base of the modern floor lamp along with the height. If you have ceilings that are low then you need to keep this in mind when shopping for your lamps so they will fit. The height of the lamp shade is another important factor whether the lamp will be on the floor or on top of a table, dresser or other furniture. Usually you want the lamp shade to be at the same height as your head as a general rule of thumb. Picking a modern floor lamp out online and having it delivered is a great way to save money but also requires you review the measurements in the product description. Check the size with the future location of the modern lamp to eliminate size concerns.
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.
When it comes to setting the mood or atmosphere in a room, not only does proper illumination add to the allure of your personal space, but also the sources of light. While table lamps and ceiling lights serve a functional purpose, floor lamps are expansive in the many different ways one may decorate their space and showcase their creativity. Whether you choose an antique selection to brighten your den or side with a traditional Victorian fringe design for the bedroom, the never-ending possibilities of a floor lamp shine through in the mind-boggling variety in choices.
