Tiffany Lamp Designs - With the growing popularity of Tiffany lamps today it has become very simple to find your desired style and design of Tiffany style lamp. Tiffany lamps come in almost all style. From table lamps floor lamps hanging lamps sconces and pendants there are so many styles to choose from. Let’s explore some of the major designs of Tiffany Lamps.
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.
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.
There are a variety of beautiful styles and colors to choose from as well when you are trying to decorate with Tiffany lamps lighting. Some of these lamps are designed to reflect unique designs on the walls of your home while there are others that have very unique bases that add to your stylish décor such as flower stem looks or even bases that look like the neck of a beautiful swam. Some of the colors that you can find include gold greens violet various shades of red plum merlot and many more. Often some of the lamp bases have beautiful wrought iron accents while others have a bronze finish that compliments the unique colors that are used.
Tiffany made the lamps by soldering pieces of cut colored glass that he had left over from stained glass windows he had made years earlier. He cut various types and colors of glass according to a pattern that he designed.
Modern Style Lamps - While antique style lamps are considered works of art with lots of practicality the same can be said about a number of modern style lamps out there. Modern style lamps are available everywhere (especially online) but you have to look in the right place for the best ones. Antique lamps may be classy and vintage but modern lamps have developed into very unique works of art and engineering. The design aesthetics can be quite unorthodox yet simple. And the functions and technology that go with it have advanced greatly for ease of use. Whether they’re custom-made and manufactured modern style table lamps have incorporated the use of new materials and new technology. Some of the innovations include the use of different glass materials metal surfaces and other materials that gives them a unique look. With the inclusion of new technology they can be leaps and bounds ahead of traditional and antique style lamps in terms of practicality. An example of this is the simple kinesthetic touch technology used in some lamps where a person can simply turn it on and off by tapping anywhere on it’s body.
