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.
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.
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.
Among modern lamp styles, materials like embossed porcelain or crystal can lend a fancy look to your space whereas having a lamp with a wood or polished metal base can add charm and texture to virtually any room. You will want to ensure that the texture and color of your lamp’s base doesn’t jar with the furnishing on which it’s resting.
