Best Statement Floor Lamps - First, let us define vintage floor lamp. Obviously, a floor lamp generally rests upon the ground compared to resting on the wall a table or the ceiling. The overall definition of an antique means something from a bygone age. This puts the duration outside the legal arena and into common usage. "Age" is general perceived and is understood to be a long indefinite time period which also works out perfectly for this basic definition.
More and more people are learning how to understand styling and the standard of classic floor lamps particularly as most of the ones being produced nowadays are molded plastic and actually made to be thrown away. All floor lamp makers in the turn of the century made their lamps from heavy metals for example cast iron, steel brass and cast zinc occasionally combined with marble, onyx, glass and rock. Our lamp shop frequently restores these vintage floor lamps for resale as well as for our customers' own use.
Beauty, high quality, and function were strong influences on the manufacturers of classic floor lamps. Several people are conscious of their exceptional quality and beauty but completely surprised about the highly developed functional and technical characteristics. There are far too many examples to list here but I'll mention a few the more important ones.
The central top socket is encased in a big metal cup which holds a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce off the ceiling, as if this weren't enough. Just one arm light could provide a night light that is simple or at its brightest setting, it may light a complete room up. It was designed and made and there is no brighter lamp or versatile lamp available anyplace nowadays nearly 100 years ago!
