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.

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.
