Tiffany Lamps - The Artistry of Dale Tiffany
The art and craftsmanship of the original designs are evident in Dale Tiffany lamps. Dale Tiffany is the world's leading designer and manufacturer of quality reproductions and Tiffany style lamps. Based on the original colored art glass designs originated and made popular by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Dale Tiffany produces their products with the same techniques, materials and quality workmanship of the originals. Original designs, carefully crafted using the copper foil method of stained glass construction, and high quality materials make Dale Tiffany lamps stand out above cheap imitations. Although original Tiffany works can be expensive collector's items, found in museum collections and commanding high prices at the art auction houses, Dale Tiffany lamps are affordable alternatives that are works of art in their own right.
The lamp style that was all the rage in the late 1890s and into the beginning of the 20th century was key in the art nouveau movement and given worldwide popularity by the artistry and business acumen of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Tiffany lamps are a household word more than a century later and remain a great choice for home and business décor. Styles vary widely and add to the decorating options available, with everything from table lamps, floor lamps, wall sconces and desk lamps, to chandeliers and ceiling pendants.
Stylish Yet Timeless
The Tiffany style lamp designs are timeless. Louis Comfort Tiffany drew upon his love of nature for his original designs, and as electrical lighting was being introduced, Tiffany saw the opportunity to take his beautiful stained glass creations and offer them in a functional art object, suitable for home use and affordable for the general public. The original simplicity of Tiffany's designs is thoughtfully reproduced and painstakingly crafted for reproductions that remain ageless and adapt well to even the most modern decorating styles.
Timeless beauty is reflected in the intricate Tiffany designed flowers, plants and other natural features. Ageless simplicity is beautifully captured in the fine geometric patterns, designs and borders that define the art deco movement. And Dale Tiffany lamps are produced with Louis Tiffany's original handcrafting process and attention to detail. No two objects are exactly the same, thus adding to the value of the quality reproduction. Many may imitate the Tiffany lamp styling, but few manufacturers actually are true to the high quality and artistry of the original pieces. A decorative stained glass lighting fixture from Dale Tiffany will add charm and warmth to any setting and will retain the value and timelessness of a cherished keepsake, to be handed down from generation to generation.
