Tiffany LightingWith their colored glass shades and intricate designs, the craftsmanship of Tiffany Lighting has elegantly warmed homes for nearly a century. The history of Tiffany Lighting dates back to Louis Comfort Tiffany who founded the Tiffany Glass Company, which no longer exists, in 1885. Tiffany was an American Artist and designer who designed stained glass windows and lamps, glass mosaics, blown glass, ceramics, jewelry, enamels and metalwork. His father, Charles Lewis Tiffany, had previously founded the famous Tiffany & Co. jewelry store, in 1837. Today the designs of Louis Comfort Tiffany are honored and treasured around the world, confirming Tiffany's legacy as a visionary of Art Nouveau design. Tiffany has a tremendous following.

Tiffany LampsOriginal Tiffany Lamps and pieces are now priceless and sold for unbelievable  prices at exclusive auctions. Most of the original pieces are held by museums and wealthy collectors. Today, many manufacturers have created replicas of these timeless elaborate pieces. These offerings emulate classic Tiffany styling and attention to detail and LightingCatalog sells them without the hefty price tag. This allows everyday homeowners to have a little piece of American Art History.

While Tiffany lamps account for the majority of the Tiffany lighting market, lighting manufacturers are creating elaborate Tiffany lighting pieces for many applications in the home. There are elegant Tiffany Chandeliers and Tiffany Pendants that hang over the kitchen or dining room table. There are even chandeliers and Tiffany pendants for your entrance foyer.
