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.
For instance as a general rule of thumb it’s better to have bulky lamps in areas that receive high-traffic or have kids and pets running around. This is because the heavier the lamp the less prone it is to topple over and smash into a million pieces.
Things not to overlook - Prior to buying a lamp whether it is desk lamps or table lamps you should think about the functionality of the lamps. In most of the cases people overlook or ignore the usage of energy while selecting lamps for their home. If you buy lamps with high wattage then you will have to bear the burden on huge electricity bills. Nowadays you can also find lamps that come with an adjustable wattage. Some of the other points that you should bear in mind is that oversized shades can provide diffused and a wider glow whereas swing arm lamps are suitable for reading. Keep an eye on the price tag as well.
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.

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.
