Tiffany Style Lighting Add Splashes of Color to your Decor

The word “Tiffany” has become a broad term for any lamp or light of stained glass variety. But originally the true creator of these lights was Louis Comfort Tiffany. He was the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany who founded the prestigious New York silver and jewelry firm Tiffany & Co.
Tiffany lighting has been popular for many decades, predominately due to its fabulous design and versatility – each piece looks stunning wherever you position it. With the vast array of colours and designs available, whether your preference is modern or traditional, simple and unembellished or elaborately decorated there is a style and shade that will complement your colour scheme and décor.

How Tiffany Lights are Made

The lamps, as well as all other Tiffany objects were exclusively designed either by Tiffany himself or by artists working under his supervision. Most commonly the bases of the lamps were made in the form of fine sculptures using bronze. Shades were created by thorough fitting hundreds of hand cut glass shapes into copper foil enclosures. As copper foil is light and simultaneously strong, it was made possible to create the shades of large size and uniquely complex design. This was painstaking labor-intensive work. But each lamp was a superbly crafted work of art.

Today’s Tiffany Lighting Manufacturers

Inspired by the craftsmanship of the original productions of Louis Comfort Tiffany, many modern art glass manufacturers continue to craft in Tiffany’s tradition of distinctive style and extraordinary quality. Tiffany’s aesthetic was based on his conviction that nature should be the primary source of design inspiration. Intoxicated by colour, he translated into glass the lush palette found in flowers and plants.

There are many companies that make Tiffany Style reproduction lamps and lighting in the stained glass tradition. These companies offer many traditional styles and newer contemporary designs as well. Some of today’s leading Tiffany style manufacturer’s include Meyda Tiffany, Dale Tiffany, Paul Sahlin Tiffany and Quoizel lighting companies. These four Tiffany style lighting manufacturers have the highest quality standards, producing stained glass lamps and lighting fixtures that are sure to beautifully illuminate your environment.

Today’s Tiffany Lighting Styles

Today the designs of Louis Comfort Tiffany are honored and treasured around the world, confirming Tiffany’s legacy as a visionary of
Art Nouveau design. Tiffany’s aesthetic was based on his conviction that nature should be the primary source of design inspiration. Intoxicated by colour, he translated into glass the lush palette found in flowers and plants.

For many home owners and decorators, Tiffany style lamps are an ideal starting point when deciding upon the theme or color scheme of a room. This is why Tiffany Floor lamps are a popular choice. The stirring, nature-inspired patterns and variety of brilliant hues provide excellent inspiration for wall colors, furniture pieces, rugs and carpeting, and even other selections of complementary artwork, such as Tiffany style table lamps in other areas of the room.

Tiffany first commercially produced Tiffany lamps around 1895. He incorporated tiny sections of glass to create patterns such as dragonflies, flowers and butterflies. Bronze bases provided the perfect complement for the art glass shades. Tiffany-style lamps remain popular because of their beauty and craftsmanship.

Bases of Tiffany lamps were originally created in cast bronze. Heavy bases are necessary on Tiffany lamps to accommodate the incredible weight of the glass shades. These bases of Tiffany lamps are typically created with a nod to the botanic, taking on the shapes of mushroom stems or newly formed plant tendrils unfurling.
