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.
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
unembellished or elaborately decorated there is a style and shade that
will complement your colour scheme and décor.
How Tiffany Lights are Made
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
styles and newer

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

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.
