There is a completely different charm of having floor lamps in your house. These lamps in fact have been the kind that have always been around and available and everyone will be well acquainted with the features of such a lamp be it the one by the side of your low bed or the one that stood beside your study table when you studied late into those winter nights.
One of the best things about floor lamps is that despite the fact that they have to be put on the floor, there is ample scope of innovation because of the height. The floor lamps can be up to 5 feet high and hence here is ample opportunity to first of all recreate the base and then the support rod/ pillar and finally the hood of the lamp.
Consider some of these styles of the antique lamps. The base can be made out of metal or any other material. One of the most solid bases and very elegant and beautiful at that, are of stainless steel discs. IF the base of the lamp is made of a stainless steel disc, then the lamp certainly will stand out; first of all owing to the standard large disc that it will be held on. Then consider the thin rod that is riveted to the top of the lamp which finally results in a globular, white, large glass lighting holder which will render it the slight eclectic look in steel.
Then there is another design of floor lamps that is downright creative, but only as an idea because the execution is certainly not something that one might not have witnessed. The base is made up of sturdy, firm and flat metallic or wooden material, so that it is relatively heavier than the rest of the portions of the lamp. Then the middle portion is made of hand carved wood in the form of a pillar, that might have the normal pillar design or the helix pattern carved out of it and on the top, there be a rectangular box that has the lighting fixture into it. In short, we are looking at a Victorian street lamp version. Hence the possibilities are immense.
