Victorian Floor Lamps
Queen Victoria reigned during arguably the most transformational period in British history. The Industrial Revolution was underway, and its momentum was reaching into every corner of daily life. Locomotive engines, weaving machines, mechanised mining and telegraphs were all brand new concepts. In this period, gas lights and, eventually, electricity, were replacing chandeliers, candelabra and beeswax candles. Illuminated homes and streets represented an absolute step-change. People were accustomed to living according to the sun’s routine, so Victorian floor lamps, particularly earlier ones, were created at a time when electricity was a magical idea that only those with real money could experience. Take a look at the Victorian floor lamps currently offered here at Vinterior and discover some antique designs that can make your home look truly unique and characterful.
