The Tiffany lamp name comes from its inventor, Louis Comfort Tiffany, who produced Tiffany lamps from the late 1880’s until 1930.
With its stained glass patterns of intricate design, Tiffany lamps are unlike any other lamp in the world. From the moment you see one you know what it is. In their basic function, Tiffany lamps provide light. Their beauty though seems to transform your light to an eye-catching focal point of the room. Let’s take a moment to explore some of the aspects of Tiffany lamps.
Antique Style Lamps - Quite commonly, the first thing that comes to mind when people think of "antique style" table lamps is an old, rusty and dirty lamp from the 1920’s. That couldn’t be further from the truth as these "old school" lamps are becoming popular once again. In their own right, antique lamps are seen as classy and beautiful works of art that happen to be very practical at the same time. Older homes or homes designed with vintage aesthetics will work perfectly with these types of lamps. But of course that doesn’t leave modern homes in the dark (no pun intended). You can feature antique lamps in modern homes but in this case, the lamp would need to be carefully hand picked; The lamp has to work well with the other furniture and the color scheme of the bedroom. Some of the popular types of antique table lamps for bedroom decoration include Japanese, Chinese, English and French styles, with each style dating back to early 19th and 18th centuries. The biggest characteristic of these lamps are that they convey the history and culture of where they came from, which adds personality and elegance to the bedroom.
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.
