Tiffany Lamps can add a seventies touch to your dcor. Even a really modern white and orange plastic mod seventies look can be augmented by a Tiffany glass lamp simply because the surprise of something out of date is part of the entire 70s look like something out of a Stanley Kubrick movie.
Not to mention that Tiffany lamps had a real hey day in the 1970s when they made a comeback in popularity. They were widely sought after collectibles during that time and also that was the decade when many factories opened up to start making reproduction Tiffany lamps. These reproductions are easily identified because the way the glass is cut is more reminiscent of the type of broad and curvaceous shapes that you would see in something like the Beatles animated movie Yellow Submarine.
Tiffany style lamps were also very much a part of the country styles of dcor that was popular in the seventies. They went well with stuffed brown couches and octagonal shaped side tables. Many gaudier examples of Tiffany lighting was seen hanging by big looped cords over dining room tables in seventies color schemes such as orange and brown or mustard and green. At the time these types of Tiffany style lamps could be picked up for ten bucks at a mall but nowadays they can be worth a small fortune so if you have one in your garage you might want to consider putting it up on e-bay.
Todays contemporary versions of these decorative Tiffany floor or table lamps tend to be much more refined in design and also the glass panes that comprise the shades also tend to be more brightly jewel toned then in past decades.
Tiffany glass lamps are beautifully detailed and adorned often with images of nature such as the dragonfly, peacock feathers, wisteria flowers and blossoms. It is hard not to be drawn into their beauty and is it easy to see how they also double quite easily as an ornamental object during the day.
The nice thing about a Tiffany lamp, no matter what era it is from, is that it can reflect little coin or diamond shaped shards of light that can end up on your wall. This gives any room a very cozy and elegant touch. Tiffany lamps are also very nice to read by as the light from them is bright, but has a soft quality. Tiffany lamps also look best in a dark corner where they can shine in their full glory.
The less clutter that is around a Tiffany stained glass lamp the better it looks. Most have very elegant lamp bases as well that are reminiscent of flower stems or curved like swans necks.
These gorgeous lamps can quite easily make a tacky looking kitchen appear more expensive, a recreation room seem cozier and a dining room seem like the height of elegance.
