The brightest lamp that you can purchase today in any store was designed and made circa 1920. It is also the most versatile lamp that you can buy anywhere. Further it will outlast most any modern lamp that you can find at any price. This antique floor lamp is known by a numerous names such as: 6 Way Floor Lamp Reflector Floor Lamp and "JUNIOR". The design begins with a heavy metal base sometimes highly decorated with an upright tubing leading up to a central electrical socket surrounded by 3 arm lights (4 lights total). The central light takes a 3 way bulb (low-medium-high) that is often a MOGUL size which is larger than a standard socket with higher wattage (100-200-300 watts). The three arm lights are controlled by a switch that can turn on separately just 1 2 or all 3 of the arm lights. Further many of these JUNIORS had a small light under the base which provided a very subtle night time floor light operated by a foot switch mounted on the side of the base. 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!
You must first decide whether you would like a real antique floor lamp or just one produced to look like an antique. Real antique lamps are very rare and can cost thousands of dollars. Usually these antiques have some sort of historical importance and were used by an important person. On the other hand manufactured lamps are much cheaper and easier to get than real antique lamps and still provide that element of class to your room. It is more a personal decision on how much you are willing to spend and would you be okay just to have a manufactured lamp and not a real antique,
Lamps can be used in any room in your home and can serve a variety of functions. Contemporary lamps can add both functionality and beauty to any room in your home while enhancing your decor and your own sense of style. However there are some things you need to consider when shopping for one or more.
Look around your friends` houses and you will find out that an arch floor lamp is a very uncommon choice when it comes to lamps but once you know how this lamp can be of advantage you will want to have one in your home. Basically arch floor lamps are designed to be stationed on the floor - hence its name. They are generally tall and their neck is in the shape of an arc. The necks of these lamps are usually flexible so you can adjust their shape into the purpose you want them to accomplish. If you want your living room adequately lit you can place the floor lamp in one corner and straighten it out to spread the light. Should you want your guests to focus their attention to a furniture such as the sofa for a sit-down or a coffee table with a tray of coffee mugs put out for them you can bend over the lamp and focus its lighting on them. You can even bend the lamps backward so it will light the room romantically without having anyone look at the light and blind themselves.
