Lodge Look Floor Lamps - First, let's define vintage floor lamp. Obviously, a floor lamp generally rests upon the ground compared to resting on the wall, a table or the ceiling. Something is meant by the typical definition of an antique from a bygone era. This puts the term 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 basic definition.
More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps literally and notably as most of the ones being produced today are modeled plastic made to be thrown away. Most all their lamps were made by floor lamp makers in the turn of the century from heavy metals including cast iron, steel, brass and cast zinc sometimes combined with onyx, marble, glass and stone. These vintage floor lamps are often restored by our lamp shop for resale as well as for our customers' own use.
Function, beauty, and high quality were strong influences on the manufacturers of antique floor lamps. Several people are conscious of their exceptional quality and beauty but completely surprised about the highly developed practical and technical features. You can find far too many examples to list here but I'll mention a few the more important ones.
A simple night light, just one arm light could provide or at its brightest setting, it may light a whole room up. There is absolutely no more versatile or brighter lamp lamp accessible everywhere today and it was designed and made almost 100 years ago!
