- Select wall colors and upholstery colors that coordinate with the
stain glass in a Tiffany style chandelier. Paint color is easier and
cheaper to change than lighting.
- Tiffany style stained glass looks best with low wattage lamping to
create a soft glow. Stained glass chandeliers and lamps are best for
ambient lighting. Mini pendants can be used for task lighting.
- Variation in stained glass is part of the character. Embrace subtle
flaws and variation in color as part of the charm of art glass
named after the American glass designer Louis C. Tiffany. Tiffany
lighting, including chandeliers and ceiling lights, covers designs
inspired by Tiffany as well as other Arts & Crafts designers and
artisans like Frank Llyod Wright. Arts & Crafts, Mission, Prairie
School and other late 19th and early 20th century art glass styles make
up our collection of Tiffany chandeliers. These fixtures have stained
glass or mica shades combined with the look of hand-forged metals for the
look of antique hand-crafted lighting.
The styles of Tiffany chandeliers are inspired by natural colors,
shapes and motifs. Earth tones and other colors found in nature decorate
glass shades in organic and geometric patterns. Tiffany chandeliers are
all about the glass shades. The overall designs of these chandeliers
harmoniously combine metalwork arms and balusters with delicate glass
shades. Rich bronze and patinaed copper are common choice of metals.
Tiffany chandeliers come in both uplights and downlights as well as large
Tiffany chandeliers originally were crafted for Craftsman and
Mission style homes. These homes feature rich wood tones on the floors,
furniture and moldings, giving the rooms a deep, warm color scheme. Today
Tiffany chandeliers can be found in many different style homes, offices,
libraries and restaurants. The beautiful, colorful glass is the hallmark
of these chandeliers. The colorful shades create a warm glow, bathing the
room in color as well as light.
