The distinctive lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany inspire us with their timelessness, bold use of color, and quality. Let’s take a look at one of the finest designers in American history, Louis Comfort Tiffany.
Tiffany’s father founded Tiffany & Co. jewelers, but young Louis had a different path in mind for himself. He designed White House rooms for Chester A. Arthur, and then started a glass company that specialized in stained glass and favrile glass. Tiffany’s creations became icons of the Art Nouveau and Aesthetic design movements.
Here are some of his priceless creations, along with affordable Quoizel light fixtures inspired by Louis Comfort Tiffany.
- Tiffany Studios Venetian desk lamp, c. 1910-1920
- Quoizel’s Wisteria desk lamp. New for 2012 this exquisite table lamp is inspired by the opalescent stained glass of Tiffany, which was revolutionary for his time and classic today.
- Quoizel’s Larissa table was also inspired by L.C. Tiffany featuring a handcrafted, genuine art glass shade created in rich jewel tones as well as soft pastels. The glass is arranged in a classic Art Nouveau pattern. The warm color palette creates a harmonious balance of light, and the complementary base is finished in a vintage bronze patina.
