When Louis Comfort Tiffany first decided to use pieces of stained glass to create a new type of lamp shade he was actually creating the first lamp shades of a style that would be come exceedingly popular for years to come. These pieces of glass that had been cast off while making a stained glass window were the start of a fabulous new design style that was lauded for its innovation. The result is now known by the term Tiffany lamps and the specific types of lamps that we are going to discuss here are Tiffany table lamps.
These types of lamp shades are made by fusing together pieces of glass with colored enamels and then firing them to give you the resulting panels. With the distinctive stained glass lampshades sitting atop some impressive looking lamp bases, Tiffany table lamps have justified the reason why many people track them down. The following is a selection of Tiffany table lamps for sale.

There is no limit to the number of different designs that can be used in the creation of a stained glass table lamp and Tiffany has made sure that the range is immense. Whether you want to buy a Camel Pyramid Tiffany lamp, a Dale Tiffany lamp or a Quoizel Tiffany lamp they all come in a range of colors that are suitable for all kinds of décor. Another style that is particularly attractive is the Tiffany range of beaded table lamps that are well worth browsing through.
That being said, I think the Tiffany lamp aesthetic is most suitable for a more traditional room that makes use of antique furniture. The soft glow that emanates from the diffused light shining through a classic Tiffany table lamp is perfectly suited for this particular style that represents a previous era. The retro era is nicely represented by Tiffany table lamps with versions designed and manufactured during these years that are classic era pieces.
