Has the Tiffany Light That's Been Lighting Up Lives for a Century Found Its Way Into Yours Too?

The Tiffany light, the beautiful shaded lamp that appears bejeweled, originated at the hands of a master designer who went by the name of Clara Driscoll. Most people (at least, most people who have an interest in the Tiffany light) think that the name Tiffany comes from the famous jewelry designer, Louis comfort Tiffany. That isn't the case though. These beautiful leaded glass lamps came out of Tiffany Studios, designed by Clara Driscoll, an employee. One might be tempted to think, going by the vast number of Tiffany lamps there are around the world, that the lights were always mass-produced items. They never were back in the day. Each lamp was designed by craftsmen working on them by hand, piece by painstaking piece.
While most people tend to use the Tiffany light as a centerpiece, a focus of attention, in merely one or two places in the home, there really is no reason why you couldn't use such a preciously beautiful way of lighting for the entire home. They certainly do make them in many patterns and designs for variety. There are desk lamps, pendant lamps, ones with flowers in stained glass, shrubbery, complex patterns, and all kinds of shapes. You certainly don't want for variety using Tiffany lamps to light up your whole home.
Do you find yourself short of ideas for how to decorate your home with Tiffany lamps? They sell these lamps at most major lighting stores. You could probably look up the inventory they have on any online lighting website or even on Amazon for the most amazing selection to leave around your home in all kinds of places. Do you have a little accent table in your living room right next to the couch? You could consider putting a beautiful dragonfly pattern Tiffany lamp right there. Leaving one right on the side table next to your bed, that'll cheer you right up going to bed each night. A pendant style Tiffany light in your kitchen or bathroom will splash colorful glints of light on your tiles and make your bathroom gain a kind of Wonderland look. Your choices are limited only by our imagination.
With so much color in your home, do you ever wonder about the origins of the startlingly detailed foliage, flowers and patterns on any Tiffany light? The designs themselves come from the classic stained-glass patterns found in churches and in the artistic traditions of the Middle East. The original designer of the Tiffany light created about two dozen enduring designs, some of nature scenes, some of animals. The lamps that are sold today more than 100 years later draw inspiration from those original designs.
