The original creator of the lamps, was the eldest son of Charles Lewis Tiffany - the founder of the renowned jewelry company Tiffany and Co. Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) loved art and interior design and it became his mission to transform American interiors by providing superior decorative arts for use in the home which would be valued as much as the fine arts on the wall. In so doing he became one of the most well-known and influential interior designers of his time.
Tiffany desk lamps start with a pattern drawn on heavy cardboard or a board of some type. The designer labels each piece of glass and decides on the color, all before glass is even touched. Once the design is perfect, the glass is placed on top and carefully traced. Then the glass is cut, cleaned, joined together with copper foil--no other type of joining material--and soldered carefully in place. After a thorough cleaning, the reproduction Tiffany desk lamps shades are complete.
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.
