Tiffany lamps generally mean stained glass lamps. The reason they’re called Tiffany lamps is because back in the late 1800’s, early 1900’s a guy by the name of Louis Comfort Tiffany propelled stained glass lamps to a whole new level. He used an innovative technique to produce exquisite decorative stained glass lamps that were works of art. Back in the day, Tiffany lamps were all the rage. And anyone who was wealthy enough to own one had one. Even the white house housed a good few lamps of Tiffany’s.
Cover your existing lamp shades or lamp shade frames with your chosen materials. Glue in place using a glue gun folding in the edges to neaten them. Fabric may need to be stiffened by using iron on backing. (Apply this after you cut the fabric otherwise you will have more difficulty cutting the shape. If necessary, paper can also be stiffened by gluing onto thin card. If covering a shade in fabric, in addition to applying glue, stitch the fabric in place with small stitches around the top and bottom of the frame to secure into place.
The wide variety of these styles of lamps is virtually endless. You can choose from tall floor lamps which can match a small table lamp or just standalone without additional accents. You can also choose from a variety of ceiling lamps that also have that special Tiffany touch. If you’re thinking of doing some upgrading in your home or even in your office, then this may be the way you want to go. Flush and semi flush mounts can be perfect for offices and they also offer the stained-glass elegance.
Combining round with square looks great. Add a Mission style floor lamp beside your cozy round chair, or how about a square base with funky round shades that use halogen lamps near a window? Combine square and round in the room or in the lamp. Let your creativity flow because the end result will be a very hip room! Your house is rather like the Jetson’s with every high tech gadget known to mankind yet you’re a traditional gal at heart. Your rooms are filled with trendy furnishings and plenty of metal but something really seams to be missing. Perhaps there’s too much Silicon Valley and not enough of that traditional gal showing through?
