The Tiffany style lamps you will find today are a reproduction of the original lamps designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. The original lamps came onto the scene in the late 1800s. There are modern designs available in these reproductions and the cost is much more affordable. But you will still find the intricate styles and designs that you crave. These designs will likely fit better into your decor.

Is your taste classic? Then the bright colors in the detailed patterns of the Tiffany lamps will balance out the warm earth tones in your room nicely. There is the gorgeous dragonfly pattern which comes in a wide variety of color schemes. You can find one that will work for any decor you would like. Put a lamp on the end table serving as bookends for your couch and watch the room pop with vibrant light and color. The entire room will look different.

If your room is already a bit busy with pattern and color, there are still options available to you in the Tiffany lamp. There are solid white lamps available. The white jewel Tiffany lamp will feature elegant patterns and designs, like you would expect from stained glass, but they will not overwhelm your room. You can select subdued colors. Even a smaller shade on your Tiffany lamp will keep your room from being dominated by the lamp itself.

If you room has a cool color scheme, then you can add some pop with a jewel-toned Tiffany lamp. Select one with blues, greens, and reds. Your room will be alive with color. A neutral room in taupe, gray, or even white will really get a boost from this burst of color.

Make Your Statement With a Table Lamp

The next thing you do is look for the light source and when you have decorated the room with a table lamp that is worthy of notice you should be content in the knowledge that you have chosen a lamp of great character and style.

There are many styles of table lamps that can complement the rest of the room without being too overbearing. While you might want your pair of brass table lamps to look like fine works of art you’d probably prefer they didn’t overshadow the rest of the room. Primarily the lamps you choose should perform the important task of providing the room with enough illumination. The next task they should achieve is to fit in with the rest of the décor.

Finding a table lamp (or a pair) that stands out in the room as a stylish piece that adds to the room’s appeal is a valuable find indeed.

It is not uncommon these days to find lamps that are bold and brass whereas in the past it was almost impossible to find one that was topped with a lampshade colored anything but white. Bright and bold colors have taken over along with different materials such as the very popular colored glass that distinguishes Tiffany lamps.

A similar adventurousness has also happened with the lamp bases, particularly in the retro era where all kinds of experimentation led to an anything goes attitude. From this era we have seen materials such as chrome, Lucite and sheet metal all be used with equal attitude. Beaded table lamps are just as accepted as a pottery base with a white linen lampshade and in the right room either would look just fine.

The trend has continued with a tendency to use the table lamp as an opportunity to make the statement in the room rather than with a vase or statue.
