Tiffany Lighting Direct - Ceiling Pendants 2

We have written a page about our about our Tiffany Pendant Lights and the exclusive fittings that we supply with them. 

We decided some time ago to source something a little different for our pendants and have something that we think is a real winner.  Nearly all other lighting suppliers will only offer you the light fitting that is shown in the catalogue, we like to set ourselves apart by offering you up to 4 different types of fitting for each shade. We wanted to do this as we know that a pendant that is hung in a stairwell will need more light than something over a dining table, we also know that sometimes you may want more light or less light, so 2 of our fittings have independent pull chains allowing you to regulate the light in your home. 

Of course all our ceiling pendants come with chain and a ceiling rose and are fully adjustable. 

Single Lamp Bulb Tiffany Pendant

Ideal for all sizes of Tiffany shade, the singe bulb fitting looks fantastic with a large globe bulb. Best used where the lighting needs to be subdued. 

Three Lamp Bulb Tiffany Pendant

Best suited for Tiffany Shades above 40 cm, this fitting will provide a fantastic source of light with bulbs of up to 60W. Best used where plenty of light is needed.

Two Lamp Tiffany Pendant with Pull Chains

This fitting goes on Tiffany shades 30 cm and above and allows you to regulate your light by being able to turn off or on each lamp bulb individually. Will take up to 2 x 60W bulbs and the chains hanging down are an attractive feature of this fitting. 

Three Lamp Tiffany Pendant with Pull Chains

As with the 2 lamp fitting but with three bulbs!! Suitable for fittings above 40 cm this fitting will give you the greatest degree of flexibility. 

All of our fittings can be used with dimmer switches, my next article will be about lamp bulbs, wattages and lumens etc .

 

When you have decided which shade you want all you need to do is chose which fitting you think will be best for your room in the drop down menu of each product.

Tiffany Lighting Direct - Mackintosh influenced Tiffany Lighting 3

Adding Interiors 1900 to our range also gives us the opportunity to bring you some stunning Mackintosh style lighting and I wanted to take the time to write a little about Mackintosh and how that fits in with Tiffany Lighting. 

Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a prominent member of the famous Glasgow School of architecture and design. His Art Nouveau creations are most famously known for the rose which features on all of our Mackintosh inspired lighting. The Willow Table Lamp is a perfect example of this and the rose can be seen as different from other Art Nouveau floral themes as it has an angular appearance. Named after the famous Willow tea rooms in Glasgow, if you ever have the chance to visit it is wonderful.

Interiors 1900 was the first company in the world to mix the Mackintosh style with Tiffany methods and all of it's designs are unique to them. Although Mackintosh didn't use the techniques that we now call Tiffany Lighting , it fits in beautifully with many of the Art Nouveau designs (you can see some of the original Mackintosh Lighting here)

Personally , I love the Damselfly, the colours are stunning and it is an easy lamp to coordinate and although Tiffany is a very traditional style of lighting, something like this could look perfect in a modern room. Mackintosh must be one of my favourite British desgners, a trip to Glasgow is a wonderful experience and you can feel the history oozing from every brown brick. I was lucky enough to get a one to one tour of Hill House a couple of years ago, it was simply breathtaking and I would recommend a visit to anyone.

Tiffany Lighting Direct - Interiors 1900 1

We have just finished putting the Interiors 1900 Tiffany lines onto the website and are pretty pleased with the results! You will find Interiors 1900 Tiffany Lamps and Lights on here that you won't find anywhere else on the web. We spent a great deal of time putting together shades and fixtures that have all been chosen with great care to ensure that you get the right Tiffany Lighting in your home. 

Interiors 1900 have been at the front of Tiffany Lighting in Europe for over 30 years and were the first company to introduce Mackintosh styled Tiffany Lighting. Many Interiors 1900 lines are exclusive and designed in house. The Hutchinson Tiffany range for example was designed by Rutland designer Hilary Soloman and features some exquisite glass and the beautiful Mackintosh rose, it all started from a painting she was making and one thing led to another and we have a beautiful range! Peter Legg designed the Chatelet Tiffany range and was inspired by a weekend in Paris, you can see where he got his inspiration from here.

As we explain on the Quality Tiffany Lighting page, each lamp is unique and many man hours go into each fitting, every piece of glass is cut, polished and set by hand. Our lamps may be expensive, but these are fittings that you will have for many years and will look as good in 20 years as they do today.
