For those who loved colored glass, Tiffany lamps are a perfect lighting choice. The original Tiffany lamps were designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and he loved some of the beautiful rich tones that were often used in mosaics in Byzantium. He worked to take these colors and add them to the glass instead of painting the glass. These lamps are actually made from beautiful stained glass that is hand cut. Each piece of the stained glass gets a piece of copper foil wrapped around it, then it is glued together and lead is used to solder the different pieces of glass together. There are often seeds, lines, and bubbles that occur in the glass, which actually add to the natural beauty of this special type of glass used for these lamps.
Form refers to the sheer aesthetics of a lamp whereas function refers to how much illumination the lamp actually lends to a space. Lamps, of course, vary in size, shape and style. The first step in selecting the perfect lamp for any room is making sure that the sheer size of the lamp matches the contours and dimensions of the room's interior.
Despite the implication of their name, however, antique art deco lamps are not antiques, or more than a hundred years old, yet. They can though be considered vintage, which means that they are older than fifty years, since the earliest antique lamps came out in the 1920s. However, they are already being sought out by antique collectors, mainly due to the thought that in a few years time they will already become antiques, thus boosting their value and potential profits made from reselling.
