The Elegance of Stained Glass Vintage Floor Lamps

by Vintage Lamps

Vintage Floor Lamps - Light can reflect as well as transform moods. It can also add character to any arrangement and interiors.

By experimenting with different shades of light, you can alter the ambiance of room from out of the ordinary to special to extravagant.

The possibilities of decorating with decorative indoor lighting are limitless. In this regard, the value of the vintage lighting cannot be ignored. Besides transforming the ambiance of your home, it also brings elegance to your home.

Vintage floor lamps, for that matter, can hold its own light in setting an elegant feel to its location.

One example of a vintage lamp is the stained glass lampshade.

The huge advantage of using stained glass is that its “stain” filters the bright light from the bulb, giving out a colored light that illuminates a room with that slight tinge of color, ensuring a soft glow to the environment.

This quality of the stained glass lamps makes it ideal for creating a relaxing ambiance, and that is why they are perfect for bedroom lighting as well.

In particular, vintage floor lamps and table lamps made from stain glass provide a special feel to a room or any area within or outside your house that no paint or furniture could ever do.

The Beauty of Vintage Floor Lamps and Stained Glass Lamps Exceeds Elegance

The stained glass lamp has a humble origin, and it all began literally from “trash”.

History reveals that stained glass had been in used in church windows since A.D. 1000.

According to the Association of Stained Glass Lamp Artists, the production of stained glass vintage floor lamps did not become popular until about 1885 when Louis Comfort Tiffany, a painter and stained glass window designer, began creating lampshades by fitting hundreds of hand-cut glass shapes taken from the discarded pieces of his stained glass panels into lead enclosures.

Eventually he used copper foils as enclosures. Tiffany’s creation became as we might say a classic hit. What an ingenious way of turning stained glass scraps into classic decorative light fixtures.

Majority of the original stained glass vintage floor lamps were fashioned in the French Art Noveau style of the late 1800s and early 1900s.

This style integrates images of the natural world like vines, tree roots or lily pads with bold colors.

Later, to counter the approach of the Art Noveau, the Arts and Crafts style emerged. This style features shades in geometric patterns, muted colors and squared-off bases made of wood or ceramic began.

The early stained glass lamps used oil or kerosene and had vintage floor lampsurn-type bases and uncapped shades. Gas was also used, and like the two previous fuels they were quite smelly.

But thank God for Edison’s invention of the light bulb, many of the gas models were converted to use the new filament light bulb.

It is estimated that the majority of the 100,000-plus Tiffany stained glass lamps ever made were produced from 1895 to 1920.

Other companies, such as Duffner & Kimberly, Bradley and Hubbard, Handel, Pairpoint and Chicago Mosaic, as well as American Arts and Crafts designers Frank Lloyd Wright and Gustav Stickley, started creating their own glass stained lamps in 1904.

The onset of World War II dampened the popularity of stained-glass lamps, but its glow rekindled again in the 1960s and 1970s until the present day.

So when you are mired into thinking of renovating you house, instead of going through a magnanimous and bank-breaking paint job and complete overhaul of your house decor, stop for a while and think.

And just like a glowing light bulb of inspiration you will realize that maybe what you need is just a lamp after all.

From the primitive grease-burning lamps of the 18th century to the glassy creations of Tiffany and to the modern replicate of classic designs, there are many vintage decorative lighting fixtures that may give beauty and glow to any room of your house.

Stained glass vintage floor lamps can deliver the beauty and class that you may be looking for.
