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.
To avoid buyer’s remorse you’ll want to measure the square footage of the room before heading off to the store to make your purchase. You’ll also want to consider where you’ll be placing the lamp and the dimensions of any surfaces the lamp will be resting on.
With their resurgence of popularity it is very difficult to find an authentic Tiffany lamp. Some original Tiffany lamps have commanded prices in the millions of dollars for a single lamp.
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.
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.
Numerous designs available - Other than the traditional looking lamps you will find many modern floor lamps featuring interesting patterns and designs. One such variety is the glass tray lamp which has a tray positioned at height level of a table. This kind of lamp takes less space and is very handy as well. You can even get club lamps with adjustable heights. This sort of floor lamp is primarily used for area lighting. For adding a different look you can pick the tower lamps. These not only give out ambient light but also provide a sculpture like look. This makes such lamps look very artistic and you will also bump into enormous varieties in this kind of line up.
