Most floor lamps come as a combination of a separate lamp base and lamp shade. Choose your lamp shade very carefully, and if possible, try to look at it in daylight before buying it to see how good or bad it looks. Your floor lamp will act like any other show piece in your room during day time, so it is imperative that it looks good in daylight also while it is not in use. Needless to say, choose a lamp shade that complements the colors of your room.
Even if you love it, if it does not go with the current theme of your room then it will look completely out of place. This is why you need to be careful when selecting a replacement lamp shade so take your time looking through all of your different options in order to get the best you possibly can for your time and money.
During the Victorian era lighting was primarily from gas. But with Edison's improved design of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, electric lighting began replacing gas lighting in Victorian homes. This change became the catalyst for a variety of lamp shades made to shield the glaring light bulbs.
Shade frames can usually be recovered or new ones purchased. An antique frame is stripped, covered with rust-retardant and recovered. Over the years, a large variety of styles were designed. Interesting, all the frames have names. Since flowers played such an important role in the Victorian decorating scheme, many have names such as Tulip and Daffodil.
Assess the connectors at least once a month if it is installed properly. Examine wire leads and observe for abrasions and signs of damage. Corrosion in sockets means that these should be replaced. Never touch glass components of a plug in hanging lamp with your bare hands. Always use a cloth when handling. Check all mounting hardware to make sure that the whole light fixture is secure in the hanging position.
