Tiffany lamps are those made with a glass shade, designed with a mosaic pattern. The stained-glass provides an elegant touch to a room and a unique and functional work of art. Though a more classical style lamp, Tiffany lamps work well with any decor, especially more eclectic and modern designs.
When shopping for new lights to add to your home, consider adding the class and style of a Tiffany lamp. These lamps are both functional and beautiful, working in just about any space of your home. Here are some things to consider when shopping for Tiffany lamps for your home:
Tiffany lamps are not only uniquely designed but come equipped with different features. These features help enhance the lamp's functionality and the light it provides to your home.
Some Tiffany-style lights have dimming capabilities built into the lamp's power switch. These switches are typically at the lamp's base and are turning knobs used to adjust the light's brightness. Additionally, some Tiffany-style lamps can be plugged into a power outlet connected to a wall dimmer which can change the brightness of the lamp's light.
A pull chain is included with most Tiffany-style lamps allowing you to quickly turn on and off the light with a pull of the chain. The pull chain is the most common feature used for operating Tiffany lamps.
Some Tiffany-style lamps are capable of accommodating light bulbs with three brightness levels. With a pull of the chain, you can switch through the different brightness levels in between turning the light on and off.
Tiffany lamps are known for their unique mosaic stained-glass design. These designs feature multiple colors, and some create unique patterns, such as landscapes or animals, within the lamp shade's design.
Tiffany lamps are known for their solid construction and heavy weight. The lamp's solid structure is because of the lead construction used to support the pieces of stained-glass. The lead construction provides a solid lamp that is very durable and long-lasting.
Traditionally, when you think of a Tiffany lamp, you think about a tabletop lamp or a desk lamp. Now, many Tiffany-style lamps are available for different rooms, supporting various lighting needs. Therefore, the type of Tiffany lamp you choose depends significantly upon the room you are putting it in, the space you have, and your lighting needs.
Table lamps are often what people think when talking about a Tiffany lamp. Traditionally, table lamps were the original Tiffany lamps and the most common. However, different styles of Tiffany table lamps are available, featuring many unique designs. Traditional Tiffany lamp mosaic shade designs include those with irregular upper and borders, fun geometric shapes, flowers, and a floral cone or globe. These unique designs are what make Tiffany lamps works of art and not just a light.
Smaller Tiffany lamps make great desk lamps, providing additional light when working. These lamps are a great statement piece while making your work area feel luxurious and unique to your style. Tiffany desk lamps also work well as accent lights in rooms or on bedroom nightstands. These lamps do not provide a lot of light but do serve their purpose when eliminating the immediate area around the lamp.
Tiffany-style lights are now made to be installed on walls. Different styles of Tiffany wall lamps include flush-mounted, half-circle, and sconce. Wall lamps are standard in small spaces and hallways and can be set to point the light upward or downward based on your lighting needs.
Many styles of hanging Tiffany lamps are available, including pendant lights and chandeliers. These lights make for great statement pieces in an entryway or over a dining room table.
Tiffany floor lamps are similar to table lamps, but have a more extended base to accommodate being set on the floor. These lamps are commonly used in living and family rooms, where they can be set by a couch or oversized chair and ottoman.
Select a Tiffany lamp with a design you like. Additionally, the design should not look out of place when set in a room.
Know how much table, wall, floor, or room space you have before shopping for a lamp. Knowing how much space you have available helps determine the size of the Tiffany lamp you shop for.
