Tiffany lamps might just be the most atmospheric lamps there are. Their coloured pieces of glass have a lovely effect when illuminated. Art Deco Web Store has a separate category for its large collection of Tiffany lamps.
Louis Comfort Tiffany
Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) became famous for his stained glass and lamps in the Art Deco and Art Nouveau style. The glass which helped Tiffany get famous is called ‘Favrile glass’ which is a combination of normal opal white glass and clear ‘antique’ coloured glass. At the start of the 20th century, the Tiffany studios in New York designed the most beautiful lamps with various motifs, like flower and animal designs but also geometrical patterns. Cheerfully coloured glass or more natural colours, cool shades or warm ones: there is a lot of diversity when it comes to Tiffany lamps. It is not just the lampshades that are made with such attention to detail: the lamp bases were also pieces of art all by themselves. Usually, they had a shape that harmonised with the design of the glass lampshade, like a branch with leaves, a tree trunk, a flower or even an elegant lady. The bases are often cast in bronze and have a beautiful, organic shape.
These stunning lamps are still made according to the traditional Tiffany technique. Original Tiffany lamps are very popular at the moment. The price of a rare Tiffany lamp can amount to a million dollars. The Tiffany lamps of Art Deco Web Store are high quality lamps that have skilfully been made according to the Tiffany technique. A mould is created to puzzle together the pieces of cut glass. Eventually, the glass components are wrapped in copper foil and then welded together. This means that every lamp is unique! This technique makes the glass sound dull, which leads some people to think that they are hearing and feeling plastic. However, the Tiffany lamps from Art Deco Web Store are guaranteed to be made of glass.
Art Deco Web Store has a very large collection of Tiffany lamps. There are Art Nouveau Tiffany lamps available in various shapes, such as butterflies, lilies, flowers, peacocks and dragonflies. They create a whimsical atmosphere. There are also angular, geometrical Tiffany lamps. They go well with the Art Deco style and stand out due to their puzzled design of small pieces of glass. The American architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) liked working in the Tiffany Art Deco style. Two original Tiffany reproductions are the showpieces of the collection: Zinnia and Nautilus. There are nearly 200 different Tiffany lamps to choose from at Art Deco Web Store; Tiffany ceiling lamps, Tiffany hanging lamps, Tiffany table lamps, Tiffany floor lamps, Tiffany wall lamps, Tiffany desk lamps, Tiffany lanterns, Tiffany chandeliers and even Tiffany light domes. These domes are perfect for larger projects, such as lighting in a restaurant. Have a look at the category Tiffany lamps to view the entire collection.
