Tiffany Table Lamps
Consider a new tiffany style table lamp for your room. No other table lamp styles compare to the color and elegance of stained glass tiffany lamps. Inspired by Louis Comfort Tiffany and formed from sometimes hundreds of pieces of stained glass, these tiffany table lamps will brighten up your room like nothing else.
Tiffany Style Table Lamps
A tiffany table lamp consists of a tiffany glass lamp shade and a sturdy lamp base. The lamp base is usually fairly heavy to help ensure the glass shade doesn't topple over. The base is decorative, but the lamp shade is usually where the fun starts.
The tiffany style lamp shade will feature sometimes hundreds of pieces of colorful stained glass, all arranged into an intricate pattern. The design will sometimes depict popular themes such as flowers, dragonflies, birds and animals. A traditional tiffany table lamp will usually touch upon these classic themes, while a more modern tiffany table lamp will feature angular, geometric patterns and straighter lines.
Stained Glass Table Lamps
The glass used in tiffany table lamps is a stained glass, and sometimes an art-glass. Tiffany art-glass is a toughened shatterproof glass which is more durable and less prone to break. It is also lighter weight. However, many tiffany glass table lamps do feature more traditional glass pieces so careful handling is necessary to ensure you can enjoy the lamp for years to come.
Unlike a tiffany floor lamp, a tiffany table lamp is ideally placed next to a chair on a side table, or in the corner of a room. While you can put a taller floor lamp behind a seating area with light coming down from above, a tiffany table lamp emits its light over a slightly smaller area and, when placed next to a couch for example, will shed most of its light around the nearby area.
When a stained glass tiffany table lamp is switched on, the light from bulb will shine through the glass panels. Usually the glass will at least be colored, if not partly opaque, and this will help to diffuse the light and soften the glare from the bulb. The glass, being partly opaque, will also internally scatter the light and cause the glass itself to seem to glow somewhat.
Additionally, light shining outward from the central bulb will shine through the stained glass and project onto nearby surfaces. In particular, since the tiffany shade is usually at least vertical or sloped, aiming upwards, light will emit and shine onto nearby walls. This will produce delightful colorful patterns and shapes on your wall. You can then at times rotate the lamp to project a different pattern.
Tiffany table lamp sizes
When choosing between our wide selection of gorgeous tiffany table lamps, pay attention to the size. Tiffany table lamps can be a little in a higher price range, due to the excellent craftmanship that goes into manually creating them. To try to overcome this and appeal to a budget, some tiffany lamps are smaller than others. There are mini tiffany table lamps and also mid-sized table lamps in the 10-18" height range.
A normal mid-sized table lamp is usually somewhere in the 20-30" height range. A full sized tiffany lamp will look absolutely stunning in your room and will always be a talking point for anyone visiting. Its spectacular coloring and artistry will delight and attract the curiosity of people of all ages including children.
Tiffany table lamp light
Note that most tiffany table lamps will feature standard medium base bulb sockets. You can use a normal incandescent bulb, but you can also use a compact fluorescent or LED bulb. You could even install a full spectrum bulb for more genuine true-to-life color, although most "white" or "cool white" bulbs are very similar.
Also to pay attention to the maximum wattage of the tiffany table lamp. So long as your bulb's wattage rating is equal or less, you're safe. This means that since LED bulbs use a lot less wattage for a similar amount of light, you could increase the amount of light output to make your lamp much brighter, if you want the colors to really pop and project throughout the room.
Be aware that since light from the tiffany table lamp will be diffused or emitted through the sides of the tiffany shade, this will "color" the light and in turn your room will take on a hue similar to the color of the shade. You might want to consider matching the shade color to your room theme or color scheme so that the coloration doesn't clash.

When you receive the tiffany table lamp, handle it gently and slowly with care since the glass is somewhat fragile. The tiffany glass can be easily cleaned with a glass cleaner which is ammonia, vinegar or acid free. Apply a small amount of the glass cleaner to a lint free cloth and gently rub the glass panels. You can also keep your tiffany table lamp free of dust with a simple feather duster.
