With its stained glass patterns of intricate design Tiffany lamps are unlike any other lamp in the world. From the moment you see one you know what it is. In their basic function Tiffany lamps provide light. Their beauty though seems to transform your light to an eye-catching focal point of the room. Let’s take a moment to explore some of the aspects of Tiffany lamps.
The demand for Tiffany lamps deteriorated in the late 1920s and the company shut its doors in 1930. Louis Comfort Tiffany died in 1933.
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.
Flowered Cones - Similar to the flowered domes the flowered cone lamps were symmetrical with the floral designs and were a bit more like a typical cone-shaped shade. Tiffany’s use of color design and shapes set his flowered cones far apart from any typical shade of the day. The Dragonfly Oriental poppy and the Peony designs were also made using the cone design. The Lily Pad Grape Water Lily and Arrowroot were exclusively made in the cone design.
Flowered Dome Designs - The flowered domes include many different colors in the shade. The domes are rounded draping domes unlike the typical cone shape of a typical shade. Designs include the Dragonfly Daffodil Peony Bamboo Oriental poppy Apple Blossom Poinsettia and so many more.
Geometric Designs - Geometric Tiffany lamps were designed using glass cut into basic shapes such as squares triangles diamonds and rectangles and used only one or two colors.
