Louis Comfort Tiffany was the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany, of Tiffany and Co. the jewelry store and fine merchandise. Instead of following in his father’s footsteps, Louis sought a different career in various arts. In the 1880s Tiffany began to design the first of the Tiffany Lamps. The first of the Tiffany Lamps were very geometric, using basic shapes such as squares, triangles and circles in their mosaic designs.
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.
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.
Different Types of Lamps - The following advice has largely dealt with table lamps but what if you want to install a hanging lamp or chandelier, say, in your dining room? Make sure that, whichever style you select, the lamp itself hangs two feet or more above your dining room table or other surface. The last thing you want is your guests to be distracted by a bright beacon during dinner.
