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.
For those who loved colored glass Tiffany lamps are a perfect lighting choice. The original Tiffany lamps were designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and he loved some of the beautiful rich tones that were often used in mosaics in Byzantium. He worked to take these colors and add them to the glass instead of painting the glass. These lamps are actually made from beautiful stained glass that is hand cut. Each piece of the stained glass gets a piece of copper foil wrapped around it then it is glued together and lead is used to solder the different pieces of glass together. There are often seeds lines and bubbles that occur in the glass which actually add to the natural beauty of this special type of glass used for these lamps.
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.
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.
