Aside from rewiring the old floor lamp, you should also make sure that the base is stable. Nowadays, floor lamps have to meet UL standards, where the bases are heavier, so that it won`t easily tip over. However, ages ago, antique floor lamps do not have a standardized base that can`t easily be tipped over. Accidental tipping over of floor lamps can lead to unwanted fire accidents. That is why it is very important to check whether the antique floor lamp you plan to buy is safe in terms of its structure.
An antique floor lamp is a conversational piece, in its own right. Having one at home is sure to entice your houseguests into an animated discussion about its intricate design, history, and romantic elegance. Its brass finish, stained-glass lampshades, and intricate designs are enough to lure anyone into delightful conversation.
Modern floor lamps are made from a variety of materials and it is a good idea to get a light that will complement your current furnishings. Sometimes this means picking a floor lamp that uses the same materials as your furniture while other decors give great flexibility in the material that matches. Remember that shopping for a modern floor lamp or any other home decor should be a rewarding & exciting experience, you just need to take your time.
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.
