Antique Table Lamps
Antique table lamps would be a great addition to your social area, study or the drab corner in your dining room. The antique lamps come in a variety of styles with designs from famous lamp stylist Louis Comfort Tiffany. The Tiffany
antique table lamps have been the benchmark for top Antique Lamps for over eighty years with their sometimes elaborate floral designs and genuine glass shades.
When choosing your lamp try to imagine the light you want and the style of shade. The glass shades come in mostly amber or caramel color, but sometimes-light blue, pink, yellow, or green. These will all have a different color once turned on. If you are buying an original antique table lamp, ensure it has all the original parts not something that has been built up from a few lamps. There are usually trade markings under the base. Always get the wiring checked by a qualified electrician if it looks old. The switch should also be checked for operational safety.
You can also make sure that all the lights fittings have not degraded at all. The screws and bolts can sometimes rust -allowing the glass shade to come loose. Lamps have come a long way since the days of kerosene lamps and there are hundreds of antique, modern and desk lights to choose from. Some of the best looking lights have the wooden base that has been carved out to look like an old tree trunk. This gives a true look of genuine character and can add a lot of charm to your chosen room. The old style lamps almost give a feeling of a warm fire flickering in the corner. The glass shades provide a nice contrast with all the opposing colors.
Antique table lamps can transform a room even when they’re not turned on. The glass shades can brighten a room with the colorful floral designs that so many of the Antique Lamps have. You can even choose how bright you wish to light you room with the type of glass shade you have, an orange lamp will have a softer light than than a clearer yellow or peach glass shade.
Most importantly enjoy our antique table lamps like all the generation past!
