Torchiere Floor Lamp in Tiffany Blue

I was surfing the net looking for pictures of
Tiffany & Co. inspired Christmas stuff when
I came across this beautiful torchiere made 
by Louis Comfort Tiffany in Tiffany Blue.

I know I have not blogged about torchiere
lighting and saw this as an opportunity to do so.

Torchiere floor lamps provide an easy and 
effective way to supply soft, but effective room lighting
that bounces off the ceiling to illuminate a space.  They provide 
a beautiful way to light a room when overhead light is lacking, 
or simple when collateral lighting is preferable.

Louis Comfort Tiffany advanced his interior design career
by producing stained glass windows for the homes of the
elite of New York City society.  The interior design
firm ultimately evolved into a studio from which his
extremely prized leaded glass Tiffany lamps were 
handcrafted by a team of artisans and craftsmen.

Tiffany Blue mixed with Christmas Red makes this table really pop!

This is the Tiffany Suite.  The console table looks like it was
designed to look like a ring--very clever!

The flush-mounted crystal chandelier is probably from
Schonbek.  Schonbek has several levels of crystal and many
different styles from traditional to contemporary.
I recently used several Schonbek pieces on a project.
My client had a feng shui expert come in to tell her
how to create the best energy in her home.  He
recommended crystal chandeliers.

Do you think it's true that good things come in small


  1. I really like the torchiere in that Tiffany blue. It is so beautiful. I do believe that good things come in small packages especially if they come from Tiffany's! LOL


  2. The best things ALWAYS comes in small packages....:) I love the Tiffany blue and we have ornaments that color to mix with white on our trees.

  3. Hi Cindy,
    Long time no talk. I love your blog. Great looking torchiere. I hope you and the boys are doing well. And yes, good things do come in small packages.
