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.
What is it about seeing a Tiffany style lamp that brings awe-inspiring looks from those who see them? The beauty and elegance? The craftsmanship? The colors? Probably all of the above.
