Lava lamps are quite a unique type of lighting, usually consisting of a cone-shaped base that houses a light bulb. This light bulb heats up a glass teardrop-shaped container which sits above it. Inside the container is the ’lava’, which usually consists of paraffin wax, mineral oil, and carbon tetrachloride. When the lava is heated, it floats up in the alcohol solution, emulating lava. When the light is shut off, the lava will sink back to the bottom and harden until the next use.
Our variety of quality Meyda and Dale Tiffany lamps and lighting fixtures allow you to beautify your retreat at prices you can afford. A peacock Tiffany lamp may seem like an extreme example of Tiffany’s love for Nature and his use of it throughout his works. There are a number of his works that do not have any obvious naturalistic undertones but even these Tiffany lamps heavily use colors and patterns found in Nature as the foundation for their design scheme. One must be familiar with the artist in order to understand works like the Hanginghead Dragonfly Tiffany lamp. For those unfamiliar with the passions of Louis Tiffany, it is still easy to see that the Hanginghead is a perfect candidate for a Billiard Tiffany Light. The Nature theme lends itself to the use of warm colors and makes for colorful stained glass fixtures that shed a comforting glow upon your activities and décor.
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.
You probably don’t want a chandelier in every room in the house. Pick the room where it would work best, and they choose other types of lighting for other rooms. Chandeliers are more ornamental. And for a great look many people go with a crystal chandelier because it immediately grabs your attention when you walk in a room. But again, match the crystals to the surroundings. What you want to avoid is using chandeliers in smaller rooms. Crystal chandeliers are known to throw light directly on the face and using big lights could end up creating shadows all over the room. Your family as well as visitors could find the situation disturbing.
