Available in different sizes, shapes, and illuminating power, floor lamps may be used to fully or just partially lighten a particular space in order to purposely generate a particular aesthetic or functional effect. Bulbs are usually adjustable in terms of output and angle of illumination and may even come in various colors.
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.
These lamps have come a long way from the earlier dome shaped or conical stuff commonly seen at homes and offices across the country. And more modern lamps come with dimmers that do not require switching off the light. You can adjust the light according to your needs while working on the table.
