You probably don’t want a chandelier in every room in the house. Pick the room where it would work best, and they choose other types of lighting for other rooms. Chandeliers are more ornamental. And for a great look many people go with a crystal chandelier because it immediately grabs your attention when you walk in a room. But again, match the crystals to the surroundings. What you want to avoid is using chandeliers in smaller rooms. Crystal chandeliers are known to throw light directly on the face and using big lights could end up creating shadows all over the room. Your family as well as visitors could find the situation disturbing.
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.
