Basic Tiffany Lamp Sizes and Dimensions. Tiffany Accent Lamps - 9" to 21" in height with a shade size that ranges from 9" to 14". These lamps can take 1 to 2 bulbs with a range from 40 watts to 100 watts. Depending on your setting a 40 watt bulb could work just fine. Tiffany Table Lamps - 18" to 36" in height with a shade size that ranges from 14" to 24". These lamps can take 1 to 3 bulbs with a range from 40 watts to 100 watts. Depending on your lighting needs 60 watt bulbs should work well.
Lighting Needs: Identify the function of the lamp in terms of lighting needs. Is the lamp`s purpose to provide general area (also called ambient) reading or accent lighting? Wattage: If there are other light sources in the room a 60 watt bulb may provide enough light for a living room. However if only using one or two lamps to light up an entire room it may be best to invest in a 100 to 150 watt bulb or a 3-way bulb. This also gives sufficient light for reading. A reading lamp should offer 150 or more watts. In general rooms should have a light source every 10 feet or so.
Modern Style Lamps. While antique style lamps are considered works of art with lots of practicality the same can be said about a number of modern style lamps out there. Modern style lamps are available everywhere (especially online) but you have to look in the right place for the best ones. Antique lamps may be classy and vintage but modern lamps have developed into very unique works of art and engineering. The design aesthetics can be quite unorthodox yet simple. And the functions and technology that go with it have advanced greatly for ease of use.
In the early 1900`s a large Tiffany Lamp cost around $100 with the smaller lamps costing around $40. The price of a beautiful Tiffany Lamp hasn`t changed much in the last hundred plus years if you take into account the rise of inflation. When you consider the cost of either style of lamp as they did a hundred years ago consider also their lasting timeless beauty. The years of enjoyment you will receive from a Tiffany Table Lamp or Tiffany Accent Lamp may be well worth the investment.
