Tiffany Style Lighting Basics
Tiffany Style Lighting
Lighting Showplace offers the most beautiful and breath-taking Tiffany-style chandeliers, ceiling lights, pendants, sconces, torch lamps, table lamps, and floor lamps, ready to ship to you today. They're true works of art that are handmade by skilled artisans.
Tiffany-style is a unique eclectic work of art and you can use them to mix across the boundaries of different design styles while providing a burst of color. If you have one or two little odd pieces of color in your décor, it can help tie them together, and they can be especially effective as an accent for a more interesting focal point.
The shades have 200 to 2,000 pieces of the finest hand-cut art glass, and the average shade takes 80 hours to create with the same beauty and standards as Louis Comfort Tiffany originals. Unusual treatments include mixing in precious metals such as gold and silver to create exotic colors. The glass has incredible mottling and translucency in a rich palette of lifelike colors - the trademark for Louis Comfort Tiffany originals and an essential ingredient in high-quality reproduction glass. Each piece of glass is individually selected for its color, translucency and how it relates to the design. It is then cut to perfection, wrapped in copper foil, soldered and assembled by hand. All shades are then double-beaded inside and out to strengthen construction. The metallic elements are then brought to a rich authentic bronze patina. Finally the shade is hand-waxed to create a protective surface and lustrous finish.
Tiffany-style lighting is sure to add warmth and elegance to every room in your home. They are an exquisite investment today and cherished heirlooms of tomorrow to be handed down from generation to generation.
