What is a Tiffany Lamp? In its simplest explanation a Tiffany lamp is known best for its glass lamp shade of many colors and designs. Although Tiffany table and floor lamp bases sometimes have its own intricate designs it is best known by the glass shades that adorn the light.
If you’re going to use your lamp mainly for reading you would want a fairly sheer lampshade that doesn’t trap light. A thin-fabric lampshade should do. As a general rule of thumb for reading and table lamps you will want the lampshade to be just over half the height of the base. If the lamp is going to be set on the floor and let off more light a lampshade that’s only one-fourth the base’s height would be better.
