Tiffany desk lamps can brighten up a workspace and make time spent at a desk much more enjoyable. They come in a variety of styles, color and design, and are made by many different manufacturers. While almost any type of lamp with a stained glass shade is often referred to as a Tiffany, this can be misleading. Tiffany desk lamps you can buy in stores today are all reproductions of the lamps made in the late 19th century and early 20th century by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his small band of craftspeople.
For the living room, choose a lamp shade made of fabric or slightly opaque paper to provide warm glow in the room. If to be placed near a television, an opaque shade can be chosen to reduce glare. For a modern look, drum shades may be used and if traditional look is preferred, conical shades are recommended. For reading purposes, the lamp's bulb must be at least 60 Watts; a dimmer or three0way bulb can be used for modulating the brightness.
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.
