It was very easy to use the website. I wanted outdoor lighting with photo cells for an automatic on and off lighting system. Lighting Showroom had direct search capabilities that immediately listed those lighting fixtures that had photo cells. I also liked all of the descriptions of each of the fixtures. I feel I really found what I was looking for and need.

Retro Vintage Styling
Funky, bright, and fun, Retro decorating encompasses "modern classic" design elements from the 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's. A sense of familiarity and nostalgia are achieved by maintaining the original shape and feel, but giving it a fresh new appeal by using colors from a contemporary palette.
Floor lamps are free-standing so they don't take up table space and can be placed nearly anywhere in a room as well as moved from one place or room to another. Depending on the type you choose, a floor lamp can provide either general ambient or task specific light.
If your goal is to add general ambient light to a room, a torchiere floor lamp is a good choice. The key design element of a torchiere is that the shade or bowl is open and points upward toward the ceiling rather than downward toward the floor. This provides a good amount of light that can often be the only light source in a smaller room or a great way to add light to a dark corner of a larger room.
If you need task specific light a more traditional floor lamp with a bulb and shade that point downward may be the best choice. For activities such as reading, sewing or other hobbies, you may want to consider a floor lamp with a directional head, many of which have arms that allow the light to be moved up or down and turned to the side to direct the light to exactly where you need it.
