The resurgence of swag

Swag lamps are officially “in.” The most common definition of a swag lamp references a fabric lamp shade hung from a metal chain. The lamps shades, popular from the 1950s-1980s, come in all different colors and patterns and are frequently ornamented with a fringe, either of cloth or beads. Though the fabric shade swag lamps are most remembered, any hanging lamp is considered swag.

Tiffany hanging lamps are a stylish way to pay homage to the swag style. True to swag form, they are hanging, but can be further customized with colored pull chains and cords. The shape of tiffany hanging lamps mimics that of the traditional fabric shade without the worry of fraying fabric or fringe. There’s also no need to worry about fading with the vibrant stained glass panes of a tiffany style hanging lamp. This is an easy style trend to follow that even when the craze ends you’ll be left with a beautiful, quality lighting piece.
