March 27, 2009, Newsletter Issue #159: Antique Floor Lamps

Tip of the Week

If you just want an antique look for your lighting, you can find brass floor lamps and other reproduction antiques in many stores, both online and in your area. True antique lamps, however, are much rarer.

Antique shops and online dealers may carry antique floor lamps, and there are even shops that specialize in parts for antique lamps. In the case of vintage floor lamps which were made before electricity became commonplace, a restoration shop can discreetly wire the fixture for electricity.
