The antique torchiere lamp, the antique brass floor lamp, and the antique art deco lamp are some of the more modern antique lamps that are still very popular today. Torchiere lamps are very useful and easy to place, because they provide indirect bright light to a room or area without the trouble of installing overhead fixtures. Most antique lamps are quite ornate and beautiful, since they were considered to be a design feature, not just an appliance. Antique brass floor lamps are very popular, partly because they are well made and sturdy, and partly because they are plentiful on the market. Brass floor lamps typically require little in the way of renovation; a bit of polishing, modern wiring, and perhaps a shade are all that is needed.
Lighting Needs: Identify the function of the lamp in terms of lighting needs. Is the lamp‘s purpose to provide general area (also called ambient), reading, or accent lighting? Wattage: If there are other light sources in the room, a 60 watt bulb may provide enough light for a living room. However, if only using one or two lamps to light up an entire room, it may be best to invest in a 100 to 150 watt bulb or a 3-way bulb. This also gives sufficient light for reading. A reading lamp should offer 150 or more watts. In general, rooms should have a light source every 10 feet or so.
