Tiffany desk lamps start with a pattern drawn on heavy cardboard or a board of some type. The designer labels each piece of glass and decides on the color, all before glass is even touched. Once the design is perfect, the glass is placed on top and carefully traced. Then the glass is cut, cleaned, joined together with copper foil--no other type of joining material--and soldered carefully in place. After a thorough cleaning, the reproduction Tiffany desk lamps shades are complete.
Tiffany desk lamps can brighten up a workspace and make time spent at a desk much more enjoyable. They come in a variety of styles, color and design, and are made by many different manufacturers. While almost any type of lamp with a stained glass shade is often referred to as a Tiffany, this can be misleading. Tiffany desk lamps you can buy in stores today are all reproductions of the lamps made in the late 19th century and early 20th century by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his small band of craftspeople. Louis Comfort Tiffany worked in New York, designing stained glass for an interior design firm. The leftover pieces of glass at the end of each work day inspired him to start designed lampshades from them. He did continue doing the design work for the firm for a while, but soon he began exclusively designing and creating his signature lamps. A few artists and craftspeople worked with him to create the lamps, which were art but that he intended to be used in people‘s homes and used, rather than simply admired.
