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.
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.
