Tiffany-Style 63" Claret Amber Four-Shaded Stained Glass Floor Lamp
Rich and warm, this uniquely styled stained glass floor lamp imparts a unique element to your home déor. In the late Middle Ages, claret referred to a spiced wine-based drink, produced by pouring headed wine over a bag of mixed spices. Emanating this sensuous drink in hues of wine red, amber and yellow, this stunning lamp features one large shade and three small shades crafted from 1050 pieces of hand cut glass and 40 cabochons. Supporting the small shades, intricately carved arms add another textural element.
From the Tiffany-Style Lighting Collection.

Please Note: We make every effort to ensure colors are represented accurately online. However, due the nature in which these lamps are crafted, slight color variations in stained glass are normal and help to make each lamp beautifully unique. Also, the appearance of the colors in the shade will be dependent on the lighting in the room. Cloth shades with a pattern may vary because of how the fabric is cut.
A good lighting scheme is arguably the most important aspect of decorating and the most powerful way to define a room’s ambiance. Choosing the right types of lighting requires knowing a little something about the different purposes lighting can serve, the types of lamps and shades available, what some technical terms mean, and how to tailor a lighting scheme to your specific room and needs.
Floor lamps are excellent for providing both task and accent lighting, especially to dark corners or other areas of a room where overhead light may not be able to reach. Floor lamps are easily added to most rooms because they take up little space and their light levels are often adjustable. Try placing a floor lamp next to a comfortable chair to create a perfect reading area.
Types of lighting: Lighting falls into three categories: ambient, task and accent lighting. Well-lit rooms feature a combination of the three, allowing you to be comfortable without squinting or straining your eyes. The number and types of fixtures will vary with your room sizes, décor and personal preferences.
You have the perfect lamp and you've carefully chosen a shade for it, but what kind of light bulb should you choose? You may not think much about light bulbs, but the kind you choose has the greatest impact on the overall effect and effectiveness of your lamp. Many people make the mistake of buying a light bulb more powerful than they need for a particular lamp. This unfortunately can make a lamp so intense or distracting that it is rarely used. The simple solution to this problem is to use a smaller bulb. Most table and accent lamps require no more than a 60-watt bulb, even if they are rated for something much higher. While it's very important to never exceed the recommended bulb wattage for a lamp, there is nothing wrong with using a less-powerful bulb.
Aside from wattage, there are other factors to consider when choosing a light bulb. Light bulbs come in four basic types: incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent and halogen.
