What makes arc floor lamps so popular?
To start off with, they are very visually appealing. These lamps are quite striking and will impress anyone. They are tall and curved, and normally arch gracefully over furniture. Because of their size and their height, they tend to become a focal point of a room.
Arc floor lamps are normally made of metal. Previously, only silver arc lamps were found, but these days you can find the lamps made of bronze or golden material. Some of the lamps are even painted black, brown, white or red.
In addition to being visually appealing, an arc floor lamp tends to perform the function of creating ambient mood lighting very well. They arch towards the centre of the room or a corner, depending on your placement, and provide spot lighting. Many of these lamps also have dimmer switches, so you can change the intensity of the light.
Lighting is very important to interior decoration. If your home is lit to brightly, the atmosphere will seem harsh and maybe even sterile. If the light is too dim, your rooms may look depressing. What you really want to achieve is a warm, romantic glow.
Most homes come with some traditional fixtures and fittings which create a harsh, bright light. It can be expensive and time consuming to replace these fixtures so many people like to get lamps instead. It’s like getting dining chair covers instead of a whole new set of chairs – much less expensive and much more easy.
Lamps can create the perfect romantic light. You can place them strategically to illuminate certain areas and even use a dimmer switch when you wish to. Lamps are also quite affordable. Of course, the prices of arc floor lamps do vary quite a bit, but most are easily obtained within one or two hundred dollars.
