Mainstays Combo Floor Lamp Brown - First, let us define vintage floor lamp. Upon the ground as opposed to resting on a table, the wall or the ceiling, a floor lamp generally rests of course. The general definition of an antique means something from a bygone era. This puts the term outside the legal arena and into common usage. "era" is general perceived and is defined as a long indefinite time period which also works out perfectly with this general definition.
Increasingly more people are learning to appreciate the standard and styling of vintage floor lamps literally and especially as most of the ones being created today are molded plastic made to be thrown away. 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 mixed with stone, onyx, glass and marble. Our lamp store frequently restores these vintage floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers' own use.

The central top outlet is encased in a sizable metal cup which carries a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce off the ceiling as though this weren't sufficient. A night light that is simple, just one arm light provides or at its brightest setting, it could light a whole room up. It was designed and made and there is absolutely no brighter lamp or versatile lamp available everywhere today nearly 100 years ago!
