Not only are floor lamps more versatile in the traditional tasks assigned to desk lamps, but they also have distinctly different uses. Since a floor lamp illuminates both above and below, they are ideal for sitting rooms to both illuminate the room and the area where people are engaged in conversation. With the option of designs from gaudy to very minimalist, a lamp can be added to a room either as a stylistic addition or simply as a lighting upgrade.
When looking at antique lamps remember to not clean them up so much. This is especially true with the brass and sterling lamps. Cleaning them too much devaluates them considerably. On the popular series Antiques Road Show I am always amazed at the person with the 100 year old piece of brass that would have sold for $5,000 but one can of Brass-o later is worth about a buck fifty.
To buy the best desk lamp for your room, there are several things to consider. The first thing is to take into account the style and décor of the room. Pay close attention to the accessories that flank the desk lamp. Then, select a lamp that blends in with all of these. Coordinate the style of the lamp with the rest of the articles in the room. Coordinate the color of the desk lamp with the primary colors you have used in the room. For instance, a brightly colored desk lamp would blend in beautifully with the pep and cheer of a colorful children's room, but may look weird when placed in a room that is predominantly Victorian in style.
