In Japan, the symbol of the dragonfly is synonymous with happiness and longevity. So what better way to capture this essence than on a lamp! The Tiffany dragonfly lamps are a great addition to any home, whether in the form of table lamps, desk lamps, floor lamps or sconces. While most of the original Tiffany lamps command extremely high prices, the dragonfly reproduction lamps are available at affordable prices. These replicas are meticulously handcrafted using the old copper foil technique that was adopted by Louis Tiffany because the existing technique was hampering creativity and color choices. As well as the infamous hanging head dragonfly, Tiffany lamps had other nature-inspired designs such as water lilies, peacock feathers, wisteria. The abundance of color and intricacy of designs meant that these lamps were not only appliances that provided light in your home, but they were also ornamental because they were so beautifully crafted and thus are a great piece to have in your home.
Buying desk or study lamps can be almost as personal as choosing a pair of glasses. This is because of all of the lamps that you could possibly purchase these lamps must be easy on your eyes. The type of study or desk lamp that is best for you is probably dependent on your reading and study habits and also how good your eyes are. For example a lot of the study lamps and desk lamps that are available on the market come with halogen bulbs in them. However halogen bulbs, which are the brightest bulbs you can buy are not the ideal type of light for everybody. For one thing halogen bulbs are so bright that they can cause contrast and glare to be a problem when you are studying print. This can be very tiring on the eyes and even cause you to see spots of green and red if the glare on the page has enough contrast. This is not good for your retinas over the long term and subjecting yourself to this type of eye strain could cut your study time in half. Also some people find that the halogen lamp has a subtle, barely discernible flicker that also strains the eyes.
