Louis Comfort Tiffany and his esteemed design studio began creating beautiful lamps with stained glass shades that were handmade and not created with machines. What this means is that they were not mass produced, meaning they are very special, expensive and almost rare these days. There was, recently, some controversy about the fact that perhaps it was not Louis Comfort Tiffany that created these lovely lamps but rather a woman by the name of Clara Driscoll who was discovered to have created the pieces in the late 1800s. No matter who created the lamp, the Tiffany lamp is one that is very highly reputed among the home décor industry. Those who have them paid handsomely for their originals, and others pay for mass produced replicas called Tiffany Style Lamps. If you’re looking for the look of a Tiffany lamp without the price, we have a few suggestions where you can get a Tiffany Style Lamp.
