To avoid buyer’s remorse you’ll want to measure the square footage of the room before heading off to the store to make your purchase. You’ll also want to consider where you’ll be placing the lamp and the dimensions of any surfaces the lamp will be resting on.
Wisteria Designs - The Wisteria design is one of Tiffany’s most popular designs. This design became quite popular because the finished lamp actually looks like a Wisteria tree. The lamp fixture resembles the trunk while the lamp shade looks like the blossoming limbs. Detail of branches and limbs hanging down were added to add great detail to the shade. The use of vibrant color and irregular edges draw a second or third look to see if it is indeed a lamp shade.
If you’re going to use your lamp mainly for reading you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn’t trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light a lampshade that’s only one-fourth the base’s height would be better.
If this is a bit out of your price range there are many Tiffany-inspired or Tiffany style lamps on the market for fairly reasonable prices. Characterized by the stained glass shades and decorative bases the Tiffany lamps give us a beautiful artistic way to brighten our homes with colorful designs from years past.
Numerous designs available - Other than the traditional looking lamps you will find many modern floor lamps featuring interesting patterns and designs. One such variety is the glass tray lamp which has a tray positioned at height level of a table. This kind of lamp takes less space and is very handy as well. You can even get club lamps with adjustable heights. This sort of floor lamp is primarily used for area lighting. For adding a different look you can pick the tower lamps. These not only give out ambient light but also provide a sculpture like look. This makes such lamps look very artistic and you will also bump into enormous varieties in this kind of line up.
Once the glass pieces were cut he cleaned each piece and applied copper foil to the edges. The pieces were then laid out to match the pattern design Tiffany would then solder each piece together; thereby creating one solid piece from once was many individual pieces of glass. The copper foil helped bond the solder to each piece of glass creating a lamp shade that consisted of a single solid wire throughout. A final cleaning would bring out the vibrant colors of the shade.
