Floor Lamps. Friday , October 13th , 2017 - 01:49:25 AM
As if this were not enough, the central top socket is encased in a large metal cup which holds a white waffle patterned glass bowl that reflects light upward to bounce of the ceiling. A fabric or silk shade (also called JUNIOR shade) rests upon the glass reflector bowl to reflect light downward for reading. A single arm light can provide a simple night light or at it brightest setting, it can light up an entire room. There is no brighter lamp or more versatile lamp available anywhere today and it was designed and made nearly 100 years ago!
Todays version, of course, can be of any lamp type (wax candles, incandescent bulbs, fluorescent light, halogen bulbs, etc.) and any stand material (wood, metal, plastic, composites, alloys, ceramics, etc). Torchieres usually take up only a small space in the room, are shaped unobtrusively, and provide well-diffused lighting by radiating the lamp beams towards the ceiling. For these reasons, torchiere lamps are highly sought after by building owners who intend to optimize limited spaces or project a minimalist style in the interior design.
Overall, having an antique floor lamp has its own advantages, in the sense that it provides a touch of romance, class, and sophistication to any home. However, aside from it being very expensive, it does not provide adequate lighting and is primarily used for aesthetic purposes only, instead of functionality. So, in buying a floor lamp, ask yourself what you need it for. If youre not much concerned with lighting, and are more inclined towards having one for ornamental reasons, then you should go for an antique floor lamp. Just make sure you reinforce it with modern wiring so that it is safe to use.
