Pairing Old with New

When my grandmother passed away she left me several valuable home furnishings. Perhaps the best piece of all that she gave to me was an authentic Tiffany lamp. The table lamp was none other than the Venetian desk lamps made between 1910 and 1920.

The vibrant colors are still impeccable nearly a century after their creation. I decided to place the lamp on one of the end tables in my formal sitting room. The other end table looked rather lonely, so I bought a Dragonfly Tiffany style table lamp to match. The design is intentionally not identical because I didn’t want the lamps to be too matchy-matchy; however, the colors complement one another perfectly.
