Tiffany floor lamps have shades made from stained glass that's soldered with copper foil. While the term Tiffany refer to any floor lamp with that type of shade, the name itself comes from Louis Comfort Tiffany, who began creating this type of lamp in 1895. His lamps were considered one of the most important American contributions to the Art Nouveau movement that took place in late 19th century Europe. A creation of his has now gone for over eight million dollars at auction.
Lamps that come with the main light at the top and an additional halogen light might be used to light a whole room, with the additional light being used over a comfortable chair for reading or close to a computer desk for working.
Tiffany did not just wake up one day with the idea to make Tiffany floor lamps with stained glass shades. He was working in New York for an interior design company, designing stained glass windows. The leftover glass pieces gave him the idea to make lampshades from them. He continued designing for the firm and painting, but his brand of artistry was born and soon became his only pursuit.
