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.
The artists style of Irregular Upper and Lower Border lamps give the appearance of tree branches and shrubs because of the openwork edging. Some Tiffany desk lamps bear lots of flowers and foliage, sometimes one type and color of flower, sometimes many. And another distinctive style of Tiffanys was the use of tiny bits of nature like dragonflies, spiders and spiderwebs. Other Tiffany desk lamps were graced with squares, circles, triangles, rectangles and ovals. These are known as the geometric style.
To buy the best desk lamp for your room, there are several things to consider. The first thing is to take into account the style and décor of the room. Pay close attention to the accessories that flank the desk lamp. Then, select a lamp that blends in with all of these. Coordinate the style of the lamp with the rest of the articles in the room. Coordinate the color of the desk lamp with the primary colors you have used in the room. For instance, a brightly colored desk lamp would blend in beautifully with the pep and cheer of a colorful childrens room, but may look weird when placed in a room that is predominantly Victorian in style.
Some may be tempted to use a very small regular lamp in place of a piano desk lamp. This may be one of the worst things you can do to solve your lighting problem. While a normal lamp will be able to increase visibility in most settings, desk lamps arent going to help your problem when youre playing the piano. This is because any lamp you place directly on your piano is going to shine back into your face. Desk lamps dont pose a problem for bedside reading, because youre sitting at the side of the lamp to read. But when a lamp is placed directly on a piano, youre going to have to stare almost straight into that lamp in order to read the music. Piano desk lamps are designed with a shield on the front, which keeps the light from shining into your eyes. This shield also allows all of the light given off by the lamp to shine directly onto the sheet music, making the light brighter on the music, and keeping you from having to squint while looking at the lamp.
Adjustable-neck lamps These units are ideal for people who constantly adjust the level of light. The lamps are fitted with a weighted base so that they sit firmly on the desk surface. To allow flexibility, the lamps neck is fitted with multiple hinges or telescoping spines. Wall-mounted lamps These units are characterized by a base that is mounted with screws directly into the wall. The lamps have a flexible or hinged neck that gives them freedom of movement. These units are ideal for homes with curious pets and young children. Bankers lamp The lamp is designed for aesthetic purposes. The unit is completely stationary and often sits on the back center of a desk. While the lamp provides lighting and increases the appeal of a desk, its not meant for computer desks. This is because the computers screen tends to block the lamps light.
