Geometric Designs - Geometric Tiffany lamps were designed using glass cut into basic shapes such as squares triangles diamonds and rectangles and used only one or two colors.
The lamps became more popular during the early 1900s and demand for them increased. Tiffany hired a staff of unmarried women workers who became known as the "Tiffany Girls". The Tiffany Girls helped design and cut glass to produce the lamps. One such woman was Clara Driscoll who eventually became the director and designer of many of Tiffany’s most popular designs. Some of her most popular designs were the Wisteria Dragonfly Peony and the Daffodil.
Louis Comfort Tiffany was the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany of Tiffany and Co. the jewelry store and fine merchandise. Instead of following in his father’s footsteps Louis sought a different career in various arts. In the 1880s Tiffany began to design the first of the Tiffany Lamps. The first of the Tiffany Lamps were very geometric using basic shapes such as squares triangles and circles in their mosaic designs.
Among modern lamp styles materials like embossed porcelain or crystal can lend a fancy look to your space whereas having a lamp with a wood or polished metal base can add charm and texture to virtually any room. You will want to ensure that the texture and color of your lamp’s base doesn’t jar with the furnishing on which it’s resting.
If you know that your lamp is setting on a table or desk that isn’t going to get jostled in the near future then you could safely go with a more decorative or lighter weight lamp. Also the ratio of the lamp’s size to the furnishing’s size does matter. Make sure that the furnishing on which the lamp is going to sit doesn’t detract from the lamp itself.
