Arts and Crafts Lighting - Finding the right lamp

Arts and Crafts lighting - The revered turn of the century style known as Craftsman lighting seems never to have waned in popularity.

Back in the day, the Arts and Crafts movement stood for the highest quality of craftsmanship in decorative arts; and where interior design was concerned, arts and crafts light fixtures didn't miss out. Today you can buy stylish Arts and Crafts table lamps, chandeliers, and outdoor lighting from designers either online or at a lighting showroom.

A fixtures simplicity of form, a hallmark to arts and crafts and mission lighting, appeals to a good number of lighting consumers. This has little to do with coincidence as lighting trends reflect lifestyle trends; today's homes are more casual and relaxed.

Here are several well known Arts and Crafts/Mission style light fixture manufacturers:

If you live in a Craftsman style home, rectilinear and angular style fixtures are available to illuminate both interior and exterior. Often designed with honey colored art glass or amber mica glass, these lamps are popular and evoke true craftsman design.

For the more curvilinear lighting forms, such as the Art Nouveau stained glass lamps and chandeliers of Louis C. Tiffany - check out the lighting collections of the above brands especially Meyda Tiffany.

Online, there are several good sites to compare lamps by manufacturer and price. If you are looking for an Arts and Crafts lighting manufacturer, and know what you are looking for, the internet is a great place to shop and save money.
