Louis Comfort Tiffany worked in New York, designing stained glass for an interior design firm. The leftover pieces of glass at the end of each work day inspired him to start designed lampshades from them. He did continue doing the design work for the firm for a while, but soon he began exclusively designing and creating his signature lamps. A few artists and craftspeople worked with him to create the lamps, which were art but that he intended to be used in people's homes and used, rather than simply admired.
Choosing a lamp for a bedroom involves picking one which may add beauty to the private room. The size of a bedside lamp usually depends on the height of your night table. Yet when your bed is tall, the lamp should not be over than 30 inches. When choosing a lamp for reading, the light should fall just right on the reading material. The base of the lamp must not be flimsy or bulky. There are other things which need to be placed on the table such as the alarm clock or glass of water so an adequate size of lamp base must be chosen. Bedroom lamps must be placed as close as possible to the wall to make room for other items.
Tiffany desk lamps were made by hand. There was no mass-production involved in their creation. The designs were hand-drawn; all the glass was cut and soldered by hand. In fact, it's not even known how many Tiffany desk lamps or other types of lamps were made from each single design. Each pattern could be used an infinite number of times, but they did not keep records of how many were produced. This is part of the reason original Tiffany desk lamps and other original creations are so valuable, with one having gone for over 8 million dollars in a public sale.
