Mainstays Combo Floor Lamp Blue - First, let's define classic floor lamp. Needless to say, a floor lamp normally rests upon the ground as opposed to resting on the wall a table or the ceiling. Something is meant by the general definition of an antique from a bygone age. This puts the duration outside the legal arena and into common use. "Age" is general perceived and is defined as a long indefinite time period which also works out perfectly with this general definition.
An increasing number of people are learning how to recognize styling and the quality of antique floor lamps actually and notably as most of the ones being produced now are modeled plastic made to be thrown away. All floor lamp makers from the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals for example cast iron, steel, brass and cast zinc sometimes blended with rock, onyx, glass and marble. Our lamp store often restores these classic floor lamps for resale along with for our customers' own use.
Function, attractiveness, and high quality were powerful influences on the makers of classic floor lamps. A lot of people are conscious of attractiveness and their exceptional quality but entirely surprised about technical features and the highly developed functional. There are far too many examples to list here but I will mention a few the more significant ones.
The central top outlet is encased in a large metal cup which carries a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce off the ceiling as though this were not sufficient. A cloth or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shade) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light down for reading. Just one arm light could provide an easy night light or at its brightest setting, it may light up an entire room. It had been designed and made and there is no brighter lamp or versatile lamp accessible anyplace now nearly 100 years ago!
