Tiffany lamps have been fashionable since their introduction in the late 19th century. A lasting icon of American decorative art, Tiffany lamps continue to add a warm feel to a formal living room furniture setup.

Tiffany lamps are the unmistakable stained-glass lamps that come in a variety of colors, designs, and sizes. You'll find them in upscale antique stores and in the decorative arts sections of fine art museums. They endure as a mark of beauty and good taste, inspiring quality reproductions to satisfy the high demand for Tiffany living room lamps.

Tiffany lamps provide a warm source of light while emitting a colorful display of glass craftsmanship, making them a popular type of living room furniture. If you are seeking to introduce a more formal atmosphere into your mix of living room furniture, consider different types of Tiffany lamps.

Tiffany Table and Floor Lamps

Tiffany table and floor lamps can compliment many types of formal living rooms through their variety of shapes, styles, and colors. Some of the patterns that you'll encounter may be geometric or floral, with shades resembling the form of a dome or cone; some may have uneven lower borders.

Can You Afford a Tiffany Lamp?

The cost of a Tiffany lamp reproduced in the style of Louis C. Tiffany, the original designer and producer of Tiffany lamps, varies depending on the quality of the design and craftsmanship. You can spend anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. If you're an aggressive, savvy antique shopper, you may be able to find a more affordable original Tiffany lamp for your living room.

Your formal living room can turn into a rich, inviting space, a romantic design that stands in sharp contrast to the severe minimalist aesthetic that dictates current living room and home design.
