Tiffany luminaires, made of pieces of colored glass tied together, add vitality, color and charm to any room. Named after the famous artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, who also designed stained glass windows, lamps and mosaics, Tiffany lighting is a great choice for creating a festive dining room atmosphere.
Tiffany lighting has been around since the late twentieth century, and the style doesn't go away anytime soon! Add one of these pieces to your dining room, and you will make a statement that is really timeless. Whether you're undergoing a dramatic room cover or looking to quickly spruce up a space, Tiffany lighting will greatly enhance your entertaining space. Here are some suggestions:
- Tiffany Lamps. An ever-popular way to replace a room's look, no electrical knowledge is required! Consider using Tiffany style table lamps on your buffet for an exclusive look. If you just need to illuminate a dark corner or add visual interest to a bare wall, consider a Tiffany torchiere / floor lamp.
- Tiffany chandeliers. These designs include several "arms" and colored glass shades designed in Tiffany style. For a formal look in your dining room, choose one with upward light. For more direct lighting (and a less formal look), choose a downlight version.
- Tiffany Bowl Pendants. Extremely popular in modern dining room settings! Due to its relaxed elegance, the Tiffany intestine pendants work particularly well in smaller dining rooms or dining rooms that open up to the kitchen or other rooms in the home.
While traditional styles are available (such as the "Harvest" design), non-traditional versions increase in popularity. Look for new, natural materials such as shell or natural stone. We love the "Pomez" bowl pendant from Quoizel, made of genuine agate stone.
