We will now look at some of the lighting options available. Floor lamps are great source of ambient light and can double as accent lamps as well. They can also light particular tasks if suitably placed. They come in a huge variety of brands, sizes, and styles. The important thing to consider when selecting a floor lamp is where you want to place it, the kind of light it will provide, and the amount of space it will take up.
Some balance arm lamps have a double adjustable arm, which allows you to adjust both the height and the extension of the arm. This is important for fine-tuning the placement of the shade. Also, the shades swivel to further direct the light, making these one of the most flexible lamp choices for pianos. Other balance arm lamps have a stationary arm where the extension or reach of the lamp is stationary, but the height of the arm remains adjustable and the shade also rotates.
Changing light bulbs or lamps is a common enough job, but there are surprisingly many different bulb solutions to suit or enhance your energy-efficiency, or the look and feel of your interiors. Below is a general guide to Lamps & Bulbs for both domestic and commercial applications.
A very good reason to purchase an antique lamp is the current and future value of the lamp. Many of the antique lamps produced around 1900-1930 commonly sell for 10 - 20 times their original retail price. It is not unusual to find numerous lamps selling for 100 times the original retail price. There are some selling for incredible amounts compared to what they sold for when new - See WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE LAMP in the BIOGRAPHY below.
