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.
Choose the proper height. A floor lamp's light should fall in a way that's useful, not invasive or glaring. If you place a very tall one next to your sofa, the glare from the bulb underneath might be annoying and not conducive at all to socializing in a calm environment. Make sure the lamp's light is diffused nicely, in the proper direction; selecting a piece with a flattering shade will help.
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.
