A popular antique floor lamp restoration technique is to replace the electrical workings with contemporary parts to make these lamps safer and more functional. Converting a vintage floor lamp into a halogen or a compressed fluorescent floor lamp combines the benefits of modern lighting technology with the beauty of antique design. Antique floor lamps are rarely chosen for their light - they really are more aesthetic than functional. A vintage floor lamp pleases the eye and accentuates much of the furniture around it.
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!
Antique lamps have certain elegance when displayed inside a room. In certain features of home design, a piece that projects an unknown past will usually spark the imagination and will typically be a subject of conversation when friends visit. Nowadays, manufacturers try to imitate this image by emulating ornamental approach towards antique furniture.
