Even if you opt for an antique type of lamp to brighten up your house with that traditional kind of Victorian fringe which was designed for all bedroom areas, there will always be a never-ending chance of a floor lamp to shine with an array of different lamp choices.
Regional Flair. Floor lamps are sometimes used to represent to regional pride, as seen in Southwestern selections showcasing characteristic elements added to a lamp, such as images of cacti and rattlesnakes. A New York City-themed floor lamp may showcase a silhouette of the Empire State Building. Cozy wilderness scenes of Colorado and other rustic locations may utilize the image of wild critters, such as the grizzly bear or bald eagle.
Create a Mood. Floor lamps will allow an individual in order to create different mood within their home or office which becomes the center of your space when anyone enters the room. A gateway to the past may come alive with a Victorian-style street lamp displaying the soft, burnt orange glow of a custom crafted glass lampshade. Perhaps, the theme of your living room is oriental—a solid hardwood floor lamp with a Chinese raw lacquer finish with mother of pearl and metal chrome accents will fit into the décor. Color also helps create a mood, such as the vibrant shades of red in Asian-style floor lamps.
