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.
In Jackson Hole, WY the town's square is embellished with arches created from Elk antlers. It is certainly unique and you can create the same spirit with antler lamps. Small lamps are created from whitetail deer antlers while large light fixtures such as chandeliers may have tiers of elk antlers with rawhide lampshades. One of the most popular lamps is created with moose antlers, recognizable with their beautiful dark palms and dark rawhide lamp shades.
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.
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.
Repairing Damage: Remove the plug of your plug in hanging lamp once in a while and assess the socket if the wires and connections are good. The continuity of the cord should be flawless. Apply duct tape as needed and non-corrosive grease on all junctions, terminals and plugs to prevent corrosions.
