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.
Compare various features - When you are out there with numerous choices of lamps in front of you make sure that you compare and contrast all the important aspects to make the bests selection. The profile of the design that you choose will also influence the effect that the lamp creates. You can opt for arc design for contemporary home or an antique shade for traditional homes. You can also search online and can compare the features easily to select the best one. Some of the common styles that will come your way while browsing include Tiffany Seventies Retro Mission Arts & Crafts and Late Victorian etc. You can also locate some modern Swedish lamps.
If you know that your lamp is setting on a table or desk that isn’t going to get jostled in the near future then you could safely go with a more decorative or lighter weight lamp. Also the ratio of the lamp’s size to the furnishing’s size does matter. Make sure that the furnishing on which the lamp is going to sit doesn’t detract from the lamp itself.
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.
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.
