Audra Odom. Lamp. June 15th , 2017.
One of the most popular special effects is the \"rosette\". Here again the flower theme is repeated with sewing techniques that result in rose-like puffs. Usually they are combined with pleating or shirring that finishes the look. Another method is \"fan pleating\" - a pattern that is reminiscent of the fans used by Victorian ladies to cool themselves. Lace or burn-out velvet are often sewn on adjoining panels.
The intricate patterns made by the joining of the metal wires create small \"windows\". Each window (panel) is lined with satin, silk or other beautiful fabrics. While quality domestic fabrics are often used today, many individuals choose imported fabrics similar to those in fine Victorian homes.
Floor lamps can last a life time if used properly. So if you find a good looking lamp, make sure that it is of a good quality and is durable. Check how sturdy or heavy it is and if the finishing and painting are smooth or not. A floor lamp should be heavy enough not to fall to the ground with the slightest nudge or shove.
Keep in mind the placement of the table lamp when decorating. A popular technique to creating balance in a bedroom or living area is to use a pair of table lamps placed on top of a set of side tables. This creates a sense of harmony within a room.
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.
