These Stunning Floor Clocks Are Worth Your While

Time will tell, and floor clocks will always tell it with panache. These clocks come in styles that can belong in any modern home with all your innovative furniture and knickknacks. If anybody says that these clocks are a waste of time, they are dead wrong.

Look Up or Down at these Clocks

To differentiate floor clocks from the traditional grandfather clocks is easy - it has to do with the styling and the absence of mechanical movements and chains. So when you see tall clocks that have a pendulum, quartz movement, and hear the familiar chimes but look disparate from your mom's tall clock because these don't have wooden cases and weights, you're looking at a floor clock.

Not all floor clocks are statuesque. You can find one styled like a round table with sculpted metal legs. You can sit around it with your friends and enjoy the clock's features at a closer range while chatting about politics and business opportunities. So there's no quarrel about these clocks being uninteresting time pieces, right?

As to colors, you'll be astounded to learn that there is a white floor clock, which you will find compatible to most of your existing furniture or your interiors. There are also clocks with cases fashioned with quality wrought-iron and finished to create that aged effect, or designed with iron leaves and rosettes. If you are getting one of these clocks, go for the unusual design to make it your while.

The Clocks To Beat

Floor clocks coming from Howard Miller, Ridgeway, Henstchel, and Bulova are exquisite creations that fuse technology and modern design. There are several standard bearers you can choose from when shopping for a floor clock for your home, business establishment, or for a client, if you’re an interior designer.

The seductive curves of the Alison clock from Howard Miller would brighten a gloomy corner in your living room. In white finish to simulate a distressed antique look, this clock has a casing treated with the best hardwoods and polish. A convex glass protects the dial and the big, black Arabic numerals. It also has volume control and night sound shut-off for the Westminster and Ave Maria chimes.

The imposing La Rochelle from Howard Miller in Americana cherry has a removable crown overlay. At the base are raised panels with a cut-out graced with a lovely shell overlay. The Kieninger movement provides an automatic chime switch-off option. This clock has a locking door to prevent tampering. The black Roman numerals on the white clock face are protected by a convex crystal glass.

The Metropolitan from Howard Miller shows crisp, clean, lean lines in black casing that accentuate the white dial face with its black hands and hour markers. The pendulum, in spun nickel, again highlights the length of the black case. The entire effect of the design gives that very contemporary look. This clock has the same convenient night sound shut-off and volume control.

These are just a few samples of the floor clocks you can find online or at the downtown clock shops. You can be sure that all the designs are worth your while. There will one that will comfortably fill up the missing link in your search for the best floor clock. So you say that these clocks aren't worth your while?
