Lamps Plus Introduces New Tiffany Color Plus Brand Lighting
LOS ANGELES — December 29, 2014
Handcrafted Tiffany Style Table Lamps Are Available in 71 Base And Shade Combinations
Lamps Plus introduces the new Tiffany Color + Plus line of made-to-order table lamps, pairing handcrafted Tiffany-style art glass shades with custom colored glass lamp bases. “With our new Tiffany Color Plus lighting collection, we’re giving consumers a bright, bold new twist on the classic Tiffany style,” explains Manja Swanson, Chief Creative Officer at Lamps Plus. “We’ve essentially married beautiful Tiffany lamp shades to a selection of coordinating bases from our Color + Plus™ custom lighting collection.”
The Tiffany Color Plus line may be new, but the style that inspired it has a rich heritage. Since first being introduced by Louis Comfort Tiffany in the late 1800s, Tiffany glass shades have long been favored for their beautiful craftsmanship. However, most lamp bases on the market are made from cast metal, often with dull or antiqued bronze finishes. Lamps Plus’ new Tiffany Color Plus collection offers a dramatic alternative, letting consumers choose from a variety of modernized glass bases in fresh, vibrant colors that complement the lamp shade of their choice.
For the Tiffany Color Plus collection, each lamp shade features a colorful arrangement of hand-cut glass that is assembled by artisans using the traditional copper foil technique. Due to their handcrafted nature, no two shades are exactly alike and slight variations in coloring may occur. These artisan shades are then paired with a selection of color-coordinated Color Plus glass bases, custom-colored to order in the company’s California workshops. In total, the Tiffany Color Plus line currently features 71 shade and base combinations, with more stunning options in the pipeline.
This exquisite new collection is just the latest in an ongoing cycle of product innovation that Lamps Plus has led in recent years. “From our multi-light pendants and shade chandeliers to Color Plus and Art Shade custom lighting, Lamps Plus has been at the leading edge of a trend toward personalization and customization that has taken root in the interior design community,” concludes Swanson. “We’re excited about the new Tiffany Color Plus and its potential to reinvigorate a classic and treasured lighting style.”
