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.
If you have a lot of furniture in your room, or perhaps a large sectional sofa, and need more lighting but do not really have a place to put a lamp, this type is definitely for you. You can place any goose neck lamp behind a sofa and angle it to throw the light where you can sit and read or at an angle making it effective for interrogating the date of your teenage daughter. These goose neck floor lamps are not only good space savers, but they look great, too.
The bridge lamp was made specifically for the purpose of being able to direct light EXACTLY where it is supposed to go and not necessarily to light an entire room. Back when these lamps were created, the homes of many of the people were built to have very high ceilings which caused a great light in the room from the ceiling light, but the light was distributed throughout the whole room which created shadows below it. If you were to sit in a chair to read or sit at a desk in order to do some work, the shadow of the person or anything else near the subject, would make the light very dim and not at all bright enough to help with what task was being performed.
They were created, and still are today by the best manufacturers like Dale Tiffany, in only about seven different styles with techniques that created different looks. One style of lamp, called Irregular Upper and Lower Border lamps, have openwork on the edges that makes the design look graced by tree branches and other foliage like shrubbery. This is a distinctive and unique Tiffany style. Some Tiffany Table Lamps have geometric styles, with squares, circles, ovals and triangles throughout the design. Others are called Transition to Flowers, because of the flower and botany focus, along with insects from nature like spiders and spiderwebs and dragonflies.
