I often get asked if tiffany style lamps can be used with upholstered furniture. Well of course they can!

Immediately the assumption is that the room will become too busy. Unless the walls are covered in a wild wallpaper, that is not the case. The coloration of the lamp is the key. Purchase a lamp in the same scheme as the upholstered furniture. And note – not all tiffany lamps come with tons of varied colors, some are single colored lamps. It is the processes used in the creation and production, as well as the materials used that classify the lamps as tiffany lamps, not the number of colors.

The Timeless Appeal of Tiffany Lamps

Today, an original tiffany lamp is considered antique and very expensive. Reproductions of Tiffany lamps have revived the Art Nouveau movement. Tiffany style floor lamps capture the artistic talent of Louie Comfort Tiffany. Stained glass artistic design is the signature style of a tiffany.

Each piece of stained glass is intricately connected using welded copper foils by a well-skilled artisan. Each lamp is individually handcrafted and not mass or machine produced. Tiffany style floor lamps are innovations of the original. The shade stained glass is a classic Tiffany signature and the Manhattan style lamp captures it in a modern design.

Taper Candle Holders For The Wall.

Candelabrum are ornamental branched candlesticks or lamps with several lights. There shapes and colors vary as much as the materials they are made from.

Shabby Elegance CandelabraThe particular one I am showing you is made of wrought iron, to fit a shabby elegance décor style. It was seen used as part of a family tree in a hallway which led from the foyer towards the bedrooms. It encompassed the entire wall. The photographs of the family members were selectively placed around the candelabra, and leaves and branches were painted between the photographs and behind the candelabra. This particular taper candle holder was selected because of the number of tapers it would hold, as well as the original shape of the candelabra, which fit nicely into the center of the painted tree’s foliage. The candelabra holds 8 taper candles, the family has 6 children. They took this idea a full step further than most people I have seen do this. They purchased candles in the colors of the birthstones for each member, and placed the candles in the order of the pictures. For example, the emerald green candle was placed in the same location on the candelabra as the photo location for the son born in May. Since they are a real family, and prefer to keep their anonymity, I am going to do my best to show you the layout they used. Hopefully you will be able to picture the finished product from the diagram below.
