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. Our lamp shop regularly restores these antique floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers’ own use. From our 30 years of experience it is clear that many of these antique floor lamps will last for hundreds of years. You will find some other surprises about these collectible works of art below.
There are a great many Tiffany style lamps offered on the open market today. Organic designs featured strongly on the original Tiffany lamps and were a statement of their time. Art Nouveau was the new trend fashion and organic shapes and colours were very much the in thing. Today, many reproductions are manufactured of the original Tiffany lamps. As well as the reproductions, there is a huge selection of styles of Tiffany lamps today featuring designs from all eras. Every variation of style is available from Cubist, Art Deco and even modernist examples. All in my view are object d’art and tell of the artisans who create such beautiful home decor items.
While choosing from the wide array of chandeliers at your local store or online, the first thing you want to do is make sure it will go with your existing decor. It is possible to mix up styles a bit since chandeliers work well with both traditional and contemporary designs. But make sure the chandelier lamp shades match the look and feel of the room. Chandeliers are so popular because of the look and also because of the light they emit. They are great for setting the mood of a room. And you can get shades from more contemporary to shabby chic. The shades can lower the light and make everyone more relaxed.
Floor lamps outdo table lamps in so many ways. A traditional table lamp provides wonderful light for a raised surface like a desk, table, or nightstand, but you are limited in its placement to these raised surfaces. A floor lamp can stand alongside a desk or table and provide a wonderful light source. Many floor lamps have flexible necks to provide expanded functionality and can be adjusted to brighten any raised surface, wall, or an entire room. Not only are floor lamps more versatile in the traditional tasks assigned to desk lamps, but they also have distinctly different uses. With the option of designs from gaudy to very minimalist, a lamp can be added to a room either as a stylistic addition or simply as a lighting upgrade.
