While the brightness of many table lamps is limited to ”off” and ”on,” floor lamps tend to provide a wider range of brightness. Whether you need minimum lighting for reading or more lighting for your kids’ board game, a floor lamp usually provides a variety of brightness settings. Many homes still use fluorescent lighting throughout their various rooms. Your eyes subconsciously pick up the flickering of such lights, increasing eyestrain and glare. While the light of a table lamp illuminates outwards, the light of a floor lamp illuminates downwards. This provides a broader area of light that is helpful for whatever activity you are doing.
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.

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.
In its simplest explanation, a Tiffany lamp is known best for its glass lamp shade of many colors and designs. Although Tiffany table and floor lamp bases sometimes have its own intricate designs, it is best known by the glass shades that adorn the light. The Tiffany lamp name comes from its inventor, Louis Comfort Tiffany, who produced Tiffany lamps from the late 1880’s until 1930. Tiffany made the lamps by soldering pieces of cut, colored glass that he had left over from stained glass windows he had made years earlier. He cut various types and colors of glass according to a pattern that he designed.
