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.
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.
The lamps became more popular during the early 1900s and demand for them increased. Tiffany hired a staff of unmarried women workers who became known as the "Tiffany Girls". The Tiffany Girls helped design and cut glass to produce the lamps. One such woman was Clara Driscoll who eventually became the director and designer of many of Tiffany’s most popular designs. Some of her most popular designs were the Wisteria Dragonfly Peony and the Daffodil.
Form refers to the sheer aesthetics of a lamp whereas function refers to how much illumination the lamp actually lends to a space. Lamps of course vary in size shape and style. The first step in selecting the perfect lamp for any room is making sure that the sheer size of the lamp matches the contours and dimensions of the room’s interior.
The demand for Tiffany lamps deteriorated in the late 1920s and the company shut its doors in 1930. Louis Comfort Tiffany died in 1933.
You will also find that modern floor lamps come in Tiffany styles as well. If you are looking for a great lamp for a small space where you need some light then this is a wonderful choice. They are great for adding a nice touch beside chairs or settees where you like to sit down and read. If you enjoy reading in bed they make wonderful bedside lamps too so you can easily read in the evenings. These types of lamps are great for reading since the light that they give off is soft and great for your eyes.
