What is it about seeing a Tiffany style lamp that brings awe-inspiring looks from those who see them? The beauty and elegance? The craftsmanship? The colors? Probably all of the above.
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.
The demand for Tiffany lamps deteriorated in the late 1920s and the company shut its doors in 1930. Louis Comfort Tiffany died in 1933.
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.
Lamps are commonly utilized for enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a room. You should first consider the room for which you need lamps. Try to opt for lamps that match well with the color theme and the furnishings of the room. Determine the light strength that you require while choosing lamps. Decide whether you need it for functional lighting or just for simple accent lighting. According to your purpose you can select either table lamps or desk lamps or other varieties. This is not all as you should also notice the material of the lamp you are buying. You can choose from among material options like glass crystal metal or wood.
The Tiffany lamp name comes from its inventor Louis Comfort Tiffany who produced Tiffany lamps from the late 1880’s until 1930.
