When looking at antique lamps make sure you check the condition before even plugging them in. The trouble areas are generally at either end of the cord. Frayed or even slightly nicked cords should not be used. If you are not confident as to whether they are safe or not, do not plug them in! If you do not feel qualified to repair the lamp, find a professional to do this for you. Most likely they will do it for the cost of a cord or very cheap.
An antique table lamp is an investment and can last you really long if you take proper care of it. You can also pass on these lamps to your next generation as a part of your family tradition. Original antique lamps are masterpieces and hold great value because of their uniqueness and exclusivity. The weekly routine that you adopt to clean your antique lamp can be simple and quick. All you have to do is make sure that the lamp is not in use( unplug from the wall socket), dust the upper part of the lamp with a duster and wipe the base and middle area of the antique table light with a soft cloth. If you feel like using a mild polish, you can do that too. Be careful, that you don't overdo as doing this could damage the lamp.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading, an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand, if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
Transitional lamps are a cross between traditional and a contemporary lamps. For example, something about a particular lamp reminds you of a Louis XIV style - but it definitely does not have all the qualities required to be a Louis XIV. It may have the shape of a Louis XIV or some other classical style - but the ornamentation and embellishment are not there. A transitional lamp may be inspired by a traditional lamp, but the design and detailing has been simplified. However, if it highly abstracted or pushed to the extreme - it is likely a Modern lamp design!
