Tower lamp. Tower lamps are distinguished by their sculptured or meticulously designed frames. Tower lamps often project a clear aesthetic function that often eclipses the lamps role as a light source. In fact, most tower lamps have dimmed and colored lighting whose primary purpose is to highlight the three-dimensional artwork in its frame. Moreover, frame design possibilities are endless, with various models evoking Asian, abstract, Art Deco, cubist, and other influences.
Along with the gooseneck and tree-like lamps, some of the most popular styles of contemporary floor lamps include the torchiere, console, and tray lamps. The torchiere is probably the most popular at the moment. The bowl shaped lamp shade that accompanies this lamp is typically made of metal or glass. The simplicity of the lamp makes it easy to use in a number of rooms, no matter the design, space, or style.
More and more people are learning to appreciate the quality and styling of antique floor lamps especially as most of the ones being produced today are molded plastic and literally made to be thrown away. Most 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 combined with marble, onyx, glass and stone.
